3 Celebs, Including Katherine Heigl, Who Balance Children And A Career

Posted by Katie F. on January 9th, 2012

Katherine Heigl has a new gig writing for a blog about balancing a family and a career. Heigl, who is married to singer Josh Kelley and has a 3-year-old daughter Naleigh, discusses how much she always wanted to be a mother in the first column she wrote for the blog. What she never realized was how hard it would be to balance having a child and also keeping up with her career. She says she spent plenty of time being very stressed and worrying about failing her work, her daughter, and her husband. She considered giving up her career to raise her family, but decided work thrilled her too much to give it up. It’s still hard for Heigl to leave her daughter at home and go to work, but she believes work makes her “a better person, a better woman, a better mother.” She hopes Naleigh will understand the importance of work because of the example she sets for her.

Many other stars in Hollywood struggle to balance raising a family and furthering their career. Here are a few other celebrities that keep working even after they have kids.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie manages to raise six kids with Brad Pitt while still acting. Jolie says she and Pitt work hard to plan their work schedules so they can spend as much time as possible with their children.

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum has three children with husband Seal. Still, the model hosts several television shows, designs for shoe and jewelry brands, and stars in advertisements for clothing and skincare lines.
