Lily Cole on balancing motherhood with acting

LILY Cole doesn't think she will have any problems balancing her career with being a mother.

The 28-year-old model, actress and entrepreneur - who has 13-month-old daughter Wylde Cole Ferreira with her partner Kwame - thinks she will be able to cope perfectly fine as she begins to take on more work, especially with the help of her boyfriend.

Asked how she is coping balancing her acting and business with motherhood, she exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I've done very little since having my daughter. I've had small parts so haven't done more than a weeks work away from her.

"I've been slowly getting back into it. In terms of taking three months off to do a film I haven't done that yet. I don't think it will be a problem when I do."

When the 'St. Trinian's' star gave birth to her daughter last September, the British beauty shared a special poem about the newborn.

She said: "Born on the hottest day. Ordinary Extraordinary Witchcraft. Wilderness. Love beyond doubt. Love, a fact of life. Without fear or choice. Wylde Cole Ferreira. We have a little girl - YAY!"

Meanwhile, when Lily isn't shooting movies she shares her time between running her website - - and doing the occasional bit of modelling.

She said: "My time is really between acting and my own company Impossible.

Those two things have taken most of my time in the last few years. I stopped doing fashion except for the occasional thing. By in large I haven't done it for quite a few years now."

Lily was speaking upon hearing the news that her film 'Orion', in which she starred alongside David Arquette, has been selected for the Raindance Film Festival.
