Malin Akerman admits motherhood isn't what she expected.

The 'Trophy Wife' star, whose rocker husband Roberto Zincone filed for divorce in November after six years of marriage, is still adjusting to life as a single mother but can't believe how much love she gets from her 21-month-old son, Sebastian.

The 35-year-old Swedish-Canadian actress told "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."

Asked about motherhood, she said: "It's 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: "[There are] 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."

The 'Couple's Retreat' star, who lives in Los Angeles, can see both herself and her estranged husband in their son, who is almost walking.

She said: "You keep going, 'Wow, he looks so much like me,' or 'he's doing this, and that's so much 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. And I'm walking backwards, and he's walking, just watching your feet walk backwards is hysterical to him."
