In 2006, when Maggie Gyllenhaal learned that she was pregnant with her first, she and long-time love Peter Sarsgaard—already together for more than four years—got engaged. But they didn’t make that trip down the aisle until daughter Ramona was two, in 2009. In between, Gyllenhaal confessed to Marie Claire, “I've spent all my time learning how to be a mother and make a home with a child. I didn't know what I was doing. It's so hard and requires so much work and careful thought. You just get stronger and stronger.” Despite the heavy-lifting of early parenthood, the pair welcomed their second daughter, Gloria Ray, earlier this year.
