Megan Fox had some unexpected guests during her interview on today’s Monday episode with Hoda and Jenna.
“We saw one of your kids running around in the background,” joked compatriot Jenna. “Where are you?”
Fox, who shares sons Noah, 8, Bodhi, 7, and Journey, 4, with ex-husband Brian Austin Green, said she was home and her boys had just woken up.
“I’m in the house we’re staying in right now,” Fox revealed. “This is the living room and they all fell asleep on the couch last night watching a movie.”
Fox mocked the interruptions, but got serious when asked about motherhood.
“I’m sure a lot of moms feel this, where you [wish] you could put them all back in that two or three year period every now and then because it’s hard to see them grow so fast, ”she said. “I actually have a lot of trouble with it. I cry about it all the time. My phone will send me pictures of them when they were younger, and it’s hard to watch. It’s painful to love something so much.
Savannah Guthrie can understand. She is mom to daughter Vale, 6, and son, Charley, 4, also nostalgic for how quickly the years go by.
“It’s so funny, Megan, because I’m going to have a long, exhausting day with my kids, and then I get into bed and start looking at their baby photos and my husband is like, ‘Are you crazy? Now are you looking at their baby photos? ‘ ”Said Savannah. “But it’s so sweet and it’s so precious and it goes so fast. I understand.”
Fox, who is promoting her new horror film “Till Death,” noted that she can also be tough on herself as a parent.
“I feel like no matter how committed you are or how hard you tried back then, you always look back and say to yourself, ‘I could have been more present’, a- she declared.
Savannah pointed out that Fox will always be able to remember when Noah, Bodhi, and Journey crushed his appearance TODAY.
“Fortunately, we can just send this to you on video,” she said. “And you can see your babies crawling in the background!” “
