When you're a celebrity, all eyes are on you as you go about your business in public. However, the spotlight shines a little brighter once you announce a pregnancy, as actress Megan Fox is finding out for a second time. It's been just 10 months since she was pregnant with her first child, Noah, and she's going through pregnancy symptoms all over again under the watchful eye of the public.
Actor and baby daddy Brian Austin Green was recently seen out and about with Fox in Los Angeles, according to The Daily Mail. However, it appears that Fox isn't ready to show off her baby body just yet. She donned a casual, loose ensemble that didn't hint at her growing baby bump.
In a recent interview with People magazine, the couple claimed that they were completely taken by surprise with Fox's second pregnancy. However, they both appear to be excited about welcoming a new addition into the family. Juggling their careers with parenthood is something they know they're going to need to learn over time.
"We honestly have no idea [how to balance it] and we discuss it daily and think, 'How are we going to do this?'" Green told the news source. "I think we'll see when it happens. People do it all the time."
Balancing parenthood and a career
Actors aren't the only ones who struggle to balance their careers with the responsibilities of parenting - this is something that all new parents have to master. There's no right or wrong way to do it, but there are a few tips you can take into account to make it easier to transition.
First, remember that you don't have to be a Super Mom - happiness should be a priority over your own expectations. If your family is happy and you're content, don't stress yourself out. Next, try to see if you can work out a more flexible schedule with your employer. Working from home can give you more chances to spend time with your little one. Finally, don't feel guilty about going back to work. Think of the benefits you're giving your baby by providing a steady income. By taking these tips into account, you'll feel better about making this lifestyle adjustment.
