I’m finding it every day. You just have to. This business pulls you in so many different directions that you just have to line up your priorities, and commit to them. We really give our family love and attention constantly, because we want to do what we want to do in this business. So, we have to put 110% in.

The 37-year-old actress added that what is most important to her is making her kids feel "like they got the best mommy ever." Nicole and Boris were married in 2005.
