"They're awake and asleep at different times, or awake at the same time, and it's a jugging act a little bit," Drew 39, said of Olive, 20 months, and newborn Frankie.

She added about carrying out her parenting duties: "And always being on time, being there when I say I'm going to be there. Creating a real stable home.

"I know when my daughter wants to swing higher and jump into the pool, and all of these things, she feels safe. To make your kids feel safe is everything."

Olive, she said, loves being a big sister and even tries her hand at taking care of her sibling.

"Olive loves Frankie and just wants to hang out with her all the time. She wants to feed her. She's super into it. That's now. I'm sure things will ebb and flow."

"I didn't think I could go back to work honestly," she admitted. "I didn't want to be away from my kids and it just wasn't the priority.

"With Adam, he makes everything really safe because he really creates an environment where kids can come and be a part of it. It was a really big lesson for me."
