Showbiz Spy reports: The actress — who raises five-month-old son Noah with actor husband Brian Austin Green — admits she had a fear of germs and suffers from OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), once saying she hated the feeling of dry paper on her skin, but experiencing child birth has helped alleviate her fears.
“I think Brian was waiting to see what I would do, because, you know, when they come out they are covered in all kinds of stuff,” she said.
“I took him right on my chest and from that moment nothing he does freaks me out.
“The anxiety has been significantly better since he was born. I would say 80 percent better, which is nice.
“I’m a germaphobe, but I’m really messy. I’m not disgusting — like, I don’t leave food or dirty dishes out or anything, but I take my clothes off next to the laundry basket without putting them in and that drives him nuts.”
