Actor Evan Rachel Wood says motherhood is a lot harder than she thought it would be.

The 30-year-old Westworld star, who has a three-year-old son with ex-husband Jamie Bell, however, says it is the best thing she has ever done, reported Femalefirst.

“Becoming a mom is the best thing I ever did with my life, but it’s not for everyone. It’s harder than you think and you are never ready, but it will open up your heart in ways you never thought possible,” Wood says.

The actor says it was difficult to learn and accept that love was not enough to save her marriage with Bell.

“The hardest thing I had to learn and accept was that sometimes, despite what we have been told, love is not enough.

But when I look at my life now and imagine how things would have been different had I stayed married, I can’t say I would have the heart to change anything. I rest easy knowing that I had love, real love, for a short while.
