Up until the moment Megan Fox become a mom, her life was a little less chaotic. Sure the actress was juggling a film career and being a wife to husband, Brian Austin Green, but she never expected that once she welcomed her first son, Noah — who is almost 2 now — she would spend every second worrying.
“During my pregnancy I had no idea how worried I was going to be for the rest of my life,” the 28-year-old momma reveals to Parents. “From the moment I gave birth to Noah, that was the first time I was like, ‘I love something so much that I will never be the same again.’ I will never be relaxed again because I will always be worried about him and hoping that he is ok and safe and happy.”
Not only does Megan have a toddler running around, but she also has a 4-month-old son, Bodhi, on her arm. “It’s total chaos obviously,” Megan says. “Before you have kids you really do not understand how much work it is and how consuming it is. And then you have one and you’re like, ‘Oh my God my baby is my whole world.’
“Every moment of the day is dedicated to this one baby and then all of a sudden you have two babies! Their needs are so different," the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star continues. "As a mom it’s hard because I don’t feel like I’m ever giving either one of them 100% of my attention or 100% of myself, so I carry a lot of guilt.”
Part of Megan’s struggle in managing a toddler and an infant is not letting them watch TV. Coming from a movie star whose husband got his start on the small screen (hello, 90210!), we kind of found this shocking. “I do let them watch movies, I just don’t let them watch TV,” Megan explains.
“With movies I feel like there’s a beginning, a middle and an end. It’s linear. There’s a clear story," she clarifies. "They’re just being bombarded with all of this sort of live media and it’s very overwhelming and it’s too stimulating I think for anyone.”
“One day they’re gonna watch television. I can’t keep it from them forever,” she adds. “My intention is to keep it away as long as possible or to introduce it through Apple TV so they’re not being exposed to the commercials constantly. My goal is no computers, no cell phones until at least 8th grade.”
OK, we have to hand it to Megan: She’s one tough momma. We hope she sticks to that goal!
