Roselyn and her husband both admit they hate the idea of leaving their children for their jobs. In the spirit of keeping it real, the Puerto Rican beauty spoke about being a working mother. “I do get mommy guilt,” she told Eva inside the magazine. “Like when Sebella has a special function at school, and I’m not available because I’m working, and I think: ‘Am I making a mistake?’ Because I don’t want her as a teenager telling me, ‘You were never there for me.’ So I make it a point to be there for the important things.”

When it comes to their relationship, the Sebi and the Land of Cha Cha author keeps an open line of communication between her and her daughter. “I talk to her and say, ‘Sebi, I want to give you the best education possible; I love to work, but I work hard for you,’ she said. “I try to talk to her so that she understands. She’s very smart but young.”

"With Sebella, everything had to be perfect, and we'd sanitize [everything],” she told Eva, who is a new mommy. “But after you have your second kid, it's like, 'Dude, you'll be fine."
