The America's Got Talent judge continued, "Being able to have the job that I love and the baby that I dreamed of is great. I’m a better mom because I’m able to go away and do what I love. Even if I failed miserably."

"I’m following my dreams.... I would be less of a mother if I didn’t set out every day to try to make my dreams come true and other people’s dreams come true. So I don’t have guilt," Gabrielle added.

She also recalled the support she received from fellow new moms. “We all grew up like, ‘Go, Mom, go. Go, Mom, go!’ Not like, ‘Why are you missing things?’ but, ‘Way to go, I’m glad you’re living your dream.' We’re all kind of rooting for each other," she said.

In the June issue of Glamour, the 10 Things I Hate About You starlet admitted that she felt stressed after becoming a mother. “I don't even know if I’m feeling guilt or fear or exhaustion. I don't know. I feel nuts,” Gabrielle revealed.
