Selma Blair and Arthur
Doesn't little Arthur look like his mum?

Selma Blair was sporting a soft hat to hide the postpartum hair loss she’s been experiencing, since giving birth to her baby son Arthur four months ago.

The Cruel Intentions actress, 39, has been honest about how pregnancy has affected her, and wasn’t shy to publicise her hair loss, which is a common experience of new mums.

“This is so not glamorous,” Selma explained. “I need to take longer showers so that I can collect the hair that falls out and throw it away so I don’t clog the drain. Why do actresses never talk about that?”

Selma’s previously explained that she hasn’t been rushing to lose her baby weight and looked a little self conscious last time we saw her on the red carpet.

But despite the downsides, the mum-of-one is enjoying her experience. “I’m so in love with him,” she said, of baby Arthur. “He makes me happy every day.”
