And it’s not been the easiest transition for the star, who admitted that finding the balance between being a mum and having a busy career is sometimes challenging. Speaking to MailOnline, she explained: “It would be a lie if I said I found it easy. Obviously we lived between a beach and a vineyard so that was nice. “Our kids are so little, it was nice to be in a bubble. It taught me a lot about my priorities and what made me happy and what kept me sane.” She added: “Coming back it’s hard to say no to stuff because you’re getting pulled in different directions. It’s been a totally different way of life.” .
