In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, Graham explained: “Something interesting that I've learned about motherhood in relation to criticism is that, when you're pregnant, everyone's obsessed with you.

“But what happens when the baby comes, is that everybody has an opinion about how you should parent - even though they told you, 'Don't take advice from anybody.'"
