"Today, I am still struggling to understand how to be a mother and do my job," the legendary artist continued.

Madonna continued to express her difficulties, stating, “Because, whoever you are, having children and raising them is a work of art. And no one gives you a manual. You have to learn from mistakes. It is a profession that requires a lot of time. And it is exhausting because there is never rest."

Although she constantly feels unsatisfied with her nurturing abilities, the pop icon happily confirmed that "each of them has discovered their own creativity and that it comes from an authentic place."

"I have never encouraged my daughter Lola [Lourdes] to make music or my son Rocco to paint. But I’ve always exposed them to art, to music, and I’m happy that they’ve found ways to express themselves. I have respect and admiration for them and for what they do," Madonna explained.

The "Like a Virgin" vocalist concluded by sweetly confessing that "much of [her] happiness" comes from her precious brood.
