Megan Fox was not moved in the slightest when her three children ran around in the background of an interview she had with Today this past Monday.
“It just is what it is,” Fox replied to Savannah Guthrie and Jenna Bush Hager after one of her boys was crawling across the floor behind her. “I’m in the house that we’re staying in for right now, this is the living room area. And they all fell asleep on the couch last night watching a movie and just woke up.”
Fox shares her three sons, Noah, 8; Bodhi, 7; and Journey, 4, with ex-husband Brian Austin Green.
Currently, she is dating Machine Gun Kelly.
“It’s not preferable that everything you do is a news headline or that people know sort of every time you leave your house, but so far so good,” she said. “Life is just a series of moments so I’m just really trying to enjoy this moment, live in it and be happy with it. I’m very grateful.”
“I’m sure a lot of moms feel this way, where you could just every once in a while for a day put them all back at that 2-, 3-year-old period because it’s hard to watch them grow up so quickly. That is something I actually really struggle with that a lot,” she admitted.
“I cry about it all the time because they grow up so fast and you know, my phone will send me pictures of them when they were younger. It’s hard to look at, it’s painful to love something so much.”
And while Fox admitted her boys “don’t listen to me at all,” she attempts to stay “present” in their lives — including interrupting a live interview. “We just have to make it work,” she said.
Fox, who recently made an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, revealed her house is like a “UFC Fight Night all day, every day.”
The comment came after host Kelly Clarkson mentioned how it must be “crazy” having three boys, as there’s “a little bit of even energy” in her own home with daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 5.
“I don’t know what it’s like to have a girl,” Fox said, before sharing how her three sons are very young and close in age. “We need to live in a padded cell for everyone to be safe.”
