Liv Tyler is one busy woman!

Among her many hats, the pregnant star was recently named the brand ambassador for Belstaff, and while chatting with E! News' Catt Sadler at the pop-up shop, where Tyler's campaign film Falling Up (which she starred in and executive produced) debuted, last night, the brunette beauty and explained how she juggles all of her duties along with motherhood.

"Every day I'm like, ‘Oh my, God!' But then I stop and take a deep breath and just focus on gratitude and how grateful I am for all the opportunities that I have," she tells us. "I always say this little mantra to myself that the Universe only gives you what you can handle, so then I say thank you for giving me so much because I can handle it. It's really fun, and my baby's so sweet, he's gonna be 1 tomorrow."

(Happy Birthday, Sailor! Hope you enjoyed your cake!)

And as if there wasn't enough on the Leftovers star's plate, she's preparing for baby…
