Jessica Biel's Confession About Being a 'Selfless' Working Mom Really Hits Home

Oh, we can definitely relate.

Even celeb moms don't miss out on this lesson.
By Maricar Santos, Working Mother
As we all know, our priorities change when we become parents. We go our whole lives only caring about our own wants and needs, and then a baby comes along, and suddenly we're expected to make him or her the center of our universe. It's not an easy transition to make, but as celeb mom Jessica Biel reveals in a new interview, it's one that can teach you about what it really means to focus on someone other than yourself.
[post_ads]In the upcoming August 2017 issue of Marie Claire, the actress and mom to Silas, 2, with husband Justin Timberlake, opens up about motherhood saying, "You think you're a selfless person, and then you realize you're not. These little people come around, and they require so much, and your schedule is really not your own, nor is it important anymore, and it's very clear that it's your life now revolving around this dude. I'm not that person who feels like, 'Oh, my whole life changes for my kid,' but it does."

Working moms, especially those who have constant scheduling conflicts because of kid duties, know this all too well.
In the interview, Jessica also dishes on why she thinks her 2012 marriage to Justin Timberlake continues to run strong: "We have similar values; we believe in loyalty, honesty. We like to have fun. We like a lot of the same things. Also, in the business, we're all very career-oriented, and you have to be a little selfish. I understand that about my peers—about being focused and driven—and if you can find that and someone who shares the same values as you, it's like: Score!"

This isn't the first time Jessica's been candid about being a mom. Back in June, Jessica poked fun at herself by posting a photo of herself sleeping in a car with her mouth open to both Twitter and Facebook, complete with the hilarious caption: "SPOTTED! In her natural state, notice the slack jaw, deep sleep and palpable fatigue of this creature. Yes, it is a working mom."
