Megyn Kelly: ‘We Set the Expectations Too High for New Mothers’

03/16/2016 at 08:30 PM ET

Balancing a career and motherhood can be tough.

But Megyn Kelly explains that a parent can find “harmony” between work and private life, inspiring fans with her “if I can do it, you can do it too” mentality. Hey, taking on Donald Trump and raising three children is all in her day’s work.

In the April issue of MOREon newsstands Tuesday, the Fox News anchor opens up about her experience of being a new mom and the hardships she found when going back to work.

“We set the expectations too high for new mothers,” Kelly, 45, explains. “I’m always telling women, ‘Don’t expect to not hate it.’ You’re going to feel and look terrible, and you’re going to wonder if you blew up your life. The cruel irony of it is, just at the time you’re loving it and you’ve got it down, you have to go back to work.”

While Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly couldn’t be happier with the success of her TV show, the mom of three admits she could use a little bit more sleep.

“I have a setup that allows me to be a stay-at-home mom in the day and full-time employee in the night,” she tells PEOPLE. “It works out well for my home and work life, but it doesn’t leave a lot of time for rest.”

But Kelly, 43, isn’t complaining. After celebrating the one-year anniversary of her show on Oct. 7, she is thrilled by the 2.5 million viewers that tune in to watch her every night — even if her kids aren’t included in that number.

“I don’t think they know I’m actually on TV for a living,” she says of her daughter Yardley Evans, 3½, and two sonsEdward Yates, 5, and Thatcher Bray, 15 months.
