Speaking to MSNBC's Know Your Value, she spoke out about her concerns for returning to work: "When I go back, if things are sort of getting back to normal, I'll probably go back to traveling again. That's what I'm most worried about — just traveling and pumping and being on the road and leaving three kids at home," she said. "I'm kind of terrified about it."

Dylan added that her husband Brian, meanwhile, has been trying to persuade her that there is no reason to feel mom guilt when she does return to work.

"He's always saying, 'The lessons you're teaching our boys by working as hard as you work will be a part of them forever.' He makes me feel better and less guilty about working," she said. "I'm showing the boys that you work hard to get the things you want."

Dylan promoted her chat with Know Your Value on her own Instagram account, with a photo of herself and her sons, and wrote: "I know I’ve still got a few months off but it was nice to chat with @knowyourvalue about what it will be like.
