Stephanie Szostak’s Husband And Kids Help Her Become Resilient
French actress Stephanie Szostak once revealed during an interview that she had 'sort of' lost herself when she became a mother in her 30s.
However, now, the 45-year-old actress feels rejuvenated as if she has found her real self through the support of her husband and two kids.
Read on to learn more about Stephanie's personal life, including how she almost got lost in parenthood, her path to happiness presently, and her relationship with her husband.
Stephanie Szostak Almost Lost Herself In Parenthood
In October 2019, Stephanie was interviewed by Byrdie magazine to talk about her skincare secrets and career. During the interview, when she was asked the biggest life lesson that she had got out of each decade, she revealed something that was surprising.
The Paris-born actress revealed that when she became a mother, it was a hard time for her because she had sort of lost herself a little bit. She went on, sharing a lesson her mother had told her when she was tackling that struggling '30s' phase of her life:
Keep your life alive. You have children and you’re a mother, but have your own life, because your children will leave one day and you need to know who you are.
- Stephanie Szostak's mother
But when Szostak stepped into her 40s, her mother presumed that the actress would have a blissful decade of her life in her 40s -- the actress remembered her mother saying that.
Surprised by her mother’s words, she inquired about the reason. To that, her mother replied, stating that by then, Stephanie will have finally known herself and wouldn't care as much about it.
The A Million Little Things actress ended her interview claiming that she had found her mother’s words to “be so true,” as she had indeed lost herself while being a mother in her 30s, but presently, she has found a way back to her true self.

She shared that from gaining energy from moments alone, she has gone on to find her happiness in being together with her family.
I gain energy from moments alone, and that is challenged now. It goes without saying, though, that it’s a blessing to be together with our loved ones. We say thank god we are together, and that we like as well as love each other.
The actress further added that she and her husband have drawn a lot of resilience from their kids because the kids (two sons) are always in their moments, which is incredible and motivating.
