Megan Fox Talks Sibling Rivalry

The actress has revealed that her 22-month-old firstborn is still getting used to being a big brother

It’s something all parents worry about – how the older child will respond to a new baby. And Transformers actress Megan Fox, 28, has admitted that her 22-month-old son Noah Shannon is taking time to adjust to his six-month-old brother Bodhi Ransom.

‘Half the time he is [excited], he wants to stroke his head and help him feed him – then the other half of the time he tries to smother him,’ Megan joked to PEOPLE magazine.

The star, who’s currently promoting her new film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, also said she and her actor husband Brian Austin Green have to keep an eye on Noah, as he can be a little rough with his baby brother.

‘He’s good most of the time, but then every once in a while, when we’re not looking and we hear the baby cry, we realise he’s thrown a toy at his face,’ says Megan.

But the mum-of-two is quick to share her sons’ loving moments. ‘There’s not a whole lot of bonding going on, but they took their first nap together today! They were sleeping in the same position,’ says Megan.
