The mother-of-two successfully balances her career - which she loves - and her family life. But she was recently forced to defend her decision to be a working mother when she received backlash from a critic.
The ABC star shared a screenshot of the tweet in question, which read: "Your kids will resent you when they grow up. For leaving them during their most vulnerable time in life. We were lied to. Really can't have it all."

In response, Ginger wrote: "On my way back to work, caught the light AND thought a lot about the person who referenced my children resenting me because I work," she began. "That person has it wrong but I can't say that there aren't sacrifices. Both mom, dad, grandparents, whomever makes up the village.

"There are sacrifices as a parent no matter what you do and all forms of parenting should be respected, including parents that can't work because childcare is too expensive, don't work because they choose not to… I admire it all.
"You can be a parent that stays home, you can be a parent that works outside of the house… you just have to be the best parent you can be. Or don't be a parent if you don't want (the whole society being obsessed with having children is not for everyone)."
Ginger concluded: "I wake up with gratitude every day that I have had a chance at being a parent. Not everyone gets this opportunity and I'll keep doing my best."
