While a guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers, the host said that parents tend to assess their parenting skills often, then ask the comedian and actress if she believes she’s a good mom.
Amy admitted she didn’t think so, adding, “It’s interesting. You don’t know how good of a parent you will be. I got some very good advice from Natalie Portman, who said, “You have more instincts than you know.” And what I find is that Natalie Portman is a huge liar. Because so far all my instincts are wrong. ‘

Fans know that Amy and her husband, Chris Fischer, share a 21-year-old son Gene.
She set an example, saying that if they need to go somewhere, they sneak out so he doesn’t cry when he leaves the toddler alone with the nanny.
However, she said she had read How Toddler’s Thrive and realized that might not be the right thing to do.
“This book, like page one, is like” Whatever you do, don’t sneak away. That is really bad for your child. “I thought,” Okay. “Not to mention, we called him genital,” Amy told the host.
She was referring to the fact that the parents originally named him Gene Attell, the middle name was inspired by a fellow comedian and her good friend, Dave Attell.
But then they realized that when he said his full name out loud, it sounded like “genital”, so they changed it to Gene David!
