Oscar winning actress Salma Hayek feels that having a baby at 40 has helped her become a better mother.

The 42-year-old actress, who has an 18-month-old daughter Valentina with husband Francois-Henri Pinault, believes that her life experience prepared her for the trials and tribulations of parenthood, reports China Daily. "I thought I was going to need help getting pregnant, and I didn''t,” she told WebMD magazine.

"I feel that I''ve done enough things in life where I can appreciate the time I spend with her as my number one priority and not feel I''m missing out on something. I feel I''m a lot more patient.

"I''m a more fulfilled human being now, and I probably wouldn''t have been 10 years ago. She gets a better mother for being born now," she added.
