Couples Retreat star Malin Akerman loves being a mum and wants to hold her baby all the time.

The 35-year-old actress has almost 2-year-old son Sebastian with husband Roberto Zincone, who filed for divorce last November after 6 years of marriage.

Akerman says that juggling a career and a baby can be challenging, but she loves to bring her son to work with her and is enjoying motherhood.

Akerman told USMagazine.com: "It's so much fun. I mean, every moment. I get to bring him to work every day. He comes down to set. Everyone on set are like his aunts and uncles. He's going to be a really social baby.

"It's [motherhood] like one of those things where it's everything you expected, but it's not at all how you expected it. There's so much love, and in such a crazy way, it's one of those things where you just keep pinching yourself because they grow so much all the time."

She added: "So many moments that you didn't know were going to happen that just excite you that are really small things. All I want to do is hold that baby. You keep going, 'Wow, he looks so much like me', or 'He's doing this, and that's so like his father'.

"The best part about him is that he cracks himself up with so many things. Literally, I'll put him in his bed, and all of a sudden, I'll just hear him laughing in his own bed. He's kind of amazing."
