“My kids are used to their mommy working a lot,” she told Hello! magazine. “They know I’m busy, and we’re like a team. If I’ve been working a lot, they actually try to make sure that they don’t wake me up in the morning. They’re amazingly supportive, and I try to stay with them as much as possible. They are usually with me wherever I’m working. It’s a hectic kind of life, but they’re used to it and they find it fun.”
