Work-life balance isn’t easy for any mama to find—even if you’re Kelly Clarkson. The pop star and soon-to-be talk show host, recently revealed that parenting is her most important job, and she won’t let anything get in its way!

In an interview with People, Clarkson, whose family includes a five-year-old and three-year-old with hubby Brandon Blackstock and Blackstock’s 12 and 18-year-old children from a previous marriage, the celeb said, “When we were doing the schedule for the show, I was like, ‘I have to drop my kids off at school.’ And I’m always the one who puts them to bed.”

So how does Clarkson manage an often-grueling work schedule, while still putting her kids first? The celeb added, “You just have to prioritize and juggle and make people know it’s an important thing,” she says. “And don’t feel guilty about it.”

Clarkson also makes it very clear that parenting her four kiddos doesn’t come easily. “I’m never going to be that person that tries to play off like I’m some kind of Stepford wife, we’re a blended family. We work very hard at that.”
