Megan Fox has landed many phenomenal roles, however she says her favorite role is being a mommy to her two little boys.

With the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live-action movie coming soon, Parents magazine caught up with Fox to talk about the struggles and triumphs of motherhood and being an actress.

Fox, who is probably best known for her role in the film Transformers, has two small children under the age of two with her husband, former Beverly Hills 90210 star, Brian Austin Green- Noah Shannon Green, 21 months, and Bodhi Ransom Green, 4 1/2 months.

While Megan says she loves being a mother, she admits that it can be consuming and overwhelming at times. "It’s total chaos obviously," Fox told Parents. "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!"

Megan went on to explain how hard it is to manage her time between her two boys, and how the "mommy guilt" sometimes gets the best of her. "Their needs are so different because Noah is nearing 2 and then my newborn is 4 months. It’s really hard to manage because I also don’t let them watch TV. It’s not like I’m going to sit Noah in front of the television so I can take care of Bodhi. I have to figure out how to incorporate Noah into the process and have him help me take care of Bodhi and make sure he doesn’t get jealous and make sure nobody’s neglected and everybody’s needs are being met," Fox explained.

"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." she added. "Do they each understand how special they are and how much I love them? And are they understanding that they’re unique? It’s hard to make each one feel like an individual when you have to raise them together and manage them together all of the time. So that’s the most difficult part."

If you have missed seeing Fox on the big screen, you won't have to wait too much longer. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is scheduled debut in theaters on August 8, 2014.
