But a life in the public eye also comes with a lot of criticism, and both Nat and Eddie are no strangers to online trolls. While they agree it’s difficult not to hit back, they have learnt to ignore the noise.
“I think the easiest thing is to block them and not get sucked in,” says Nat.
As for Eddie, her views on trolling completely changed when she welcomed her daughter, Molly, in 2019.
“I used to weigh into it a lot more and fixate on it, but it can be really bad for your mental health,” she adds.
“I take the same approach as Nat now and I tend to block, occasionally I engage if I think it’s informative … but I don’t go further down that rabbit hole because it’s a fruitless waste of time.”
Instead, Eddie is thrilled to be focusing on the impeding arrival of her second child. And as a mother of two boys herself, Nat was the first colleague to pick up on the telltale pregnancy signs.
“Eddie was feeling queasy one morning and as someone who was sick through both my pregnancies, you notice the signs,” Nat explains.
Although, Nat does admit she is envious over Eddie’s ability to “cruise through” pregnancy, adding that her pal is a very “calm” mum-to-be.
Since the pair agree they are “similar in terms of parenting”, it comes as no surprise that Eddie loves to turn to Nat for advice – even if it’s been a while since she went through the baby stage.
“In the mornings in makeup, we sit there for an hour and we can chat about parenting, or what’s going on with her boys or my family,” she says. “So it’s really nice to have that relationship.”
Nat adds: “I’m in awe now with what happens with bringing up kids these days. I was in Eddie’s position 20 years ago, so I am always shocked with what’s new – there are so many new inventions.”
