She gushed: ‘Motherhood, oh my gosh, it’s one of the best jobs in life.
‘There’s no better feeling than coming back and seeing him smile after a long day.’
And she said the day to day tasks of parenting gave her gilded life as a celebrity true meaning.
‘You put him in a bath, you put him in bed, read a book, those moments… keep life in perspective because all your child wants from you is love.
‘They don’t care about a lot of the things we care about anyway. Being a mom is part of what motivates me in my every day life.’
