It’s hard to be a working mom. Striking a balance between work and family life is tough. Plus, taking care of a child can be super exhausting. Working all day to come home and change to the mom role takes a lot out of you. Jessica Biel knows the work/life balance struggle all too well.

Jessica Biel talked about working and raising her son Silas with Ryan Seacrest and Busy Philipps on Live With Kelly & Ryan, and she got super honest about it.

Biel, who has a 2-year-old son with husband Justin Timberlake, says that sometimes she feels “stretched thin everywhere.”

It’s difficult when you have to balance multiple roles in your professional and personal life. Especially when it involves a young child that depends on you. And toddlers sure know how to create mayhem if you’re not paying 100% attention.

Here’s the full clip:

Biel also recently chatted with ET about working and raising her son. She said that she can never turn off the mom role.

It’s great to see actresses like Biel talk about the struggles of motherhood. Mothers can’t be perfect all of the time. It’s okay to be “stretched thin” and we’re glad to see her acknowledge the struggle!
