Alison Sweeney on the challenges of being a working mom
Giving birth to her son Ben, now 15 months, was the "biggest change of my life… Everything I do is geared toward making his life better."
She also acknowledged that trying to find a balance between her 12-hour work days and spending time with her family is difficult – and that bringing Ben to work has helped immensely.
"I never feel like I have enough time with my son, and it kills me. I have days off during the week sometimes so you could argue I have a really nice schedule. Also I’m allowed to bring Ben to the set sometimes, and I am lucky for that. It’s awesome."
When asked if she and her husband Dave will have more kids, Alison said "definitely. I got pretty emotional [during my first pregnancy]. I’d sometimes have moments of emotional upheaval and then I’d be fine for two weeks and then I’d have another breakdown. The lesson [I learned] was not to do anything drastic while pregnant."
