MEGAN Fox finds it hard to juggle her career with motherhood.
The actress — who raises two kids with husband Brian Austin Green — would rather be at home with her sons than on a movie set.
“The main thing it does is it affects how much I’m willing to work,” she said. “I’ve never been an extraordinarily ambitious girl or career-oriented, but especially once I got pregnant with my first son and now [having] my second, it’s so hard to be a working mom especially when your heart is not in your work, when your heart is with your family.
“I have to make one movie a year because I have to invest in their future and I have to be able to pay their way through college and be able to provide for them. I’m looking for movies that will shoot in Los Angeles, for projects where I’m part of an ensemble so I can shoot in and out in 10-20 days. It’s all about trying to spend as little time away from my kids as possible.”
Parenting 2 kids under 2 years: “It’s total chaos obviously. Before you have kids you really do not understand how much work it is and how consuming it is. And then you have one and you’re like, ‘Oh my God my baby is my whole world.’ Every moment of the day is dedicated to this one baby and then all of a sudden you have two babies! Their needs are so different because Noah is nearing 2 and then my newborn is 4 months. It’s really hard to manage because I also don’t let them watch TV. It’s not like I’m going to sit Noah in front of the television so I can take care of Bodhi. I have to figure out how to incorporate Noah into the process and have him help me take care of Bodhi and make sure he doesn’t get jealous and make sure nobody’s neglected and everybody’s needs are being met. As a mom it’s hard because I don’t feel like I’m ever giving either one of them 100% of my attention or 100% of myself, so I carry a lot of guilt.”
When she first felt like a mom: “I was really connected during my first pregnancy. But even during my pregnancy I had no idea how worried I was going to be for the rest of my life. From the moment I gave birth to Noah, that was the first time I was like, ‘I love something so much that I will never be the same again.’ I will never be relaxed again because I will always be worried about him and hoping that he is ok and safe and happy.”

Damn, it feels good to be a Kardashian-West baby. [Just Jared]

Actress Hayden Panettiere and her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko were spotted on Saturday (June 21) in Porto Cervo, Italy.
Panettiere, 24, spoke of being a mother in a past interview with Glamour.
“I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother,” she told the magazine. “Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, ‘Your life ends – you’re never going to be able to do anything again!’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life.”
