Hathaway gave birth to their first child in 2016. The famous couple’s firstborn son, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman, is currently 3 years old. Hathaway is very private about her family life and intends to keep it that way. She has only posted one photo of her precious son on Instagram. Her son was nearly 1 year old in the Instagram photo. The picture captured an adorable moment of baby Shulman watching a video clip of his mom.

Hathaway admitted that Kate Middleton’s parenting technique inspired her to speak to her child at eye-level. Hathaway wants to encourage her child and instill self-confidence in him, so talking to him at his eye-level can help him to feel understood, appreciated, and self-confident.

A lot can change when a child is born. After a night out drinking, Hathaway had a hangover that caused her to shift her perspective on parenting and alcohol. She realized that drinking made the mornings more difficult. Hathaway committed herself to give up alcohol until her son grows up.

As the unknown due date gets closer each day, anticipation and excitement surround the name of the new baby.  Hathaway has found a great way to pass the time and keep the laughs rolling with her baby name prank.
