From the Bachelorette to Dancing With the Stars to the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, Melissa Rycroft is one busy lady, but nothing keeps her more busy than motherhood!

Though she was famously engaged on season 13 of The Bachelor before things suddenly ended, Melissa, 32, found her happily ever after with insurance agent Tye Strickland, whom she married in 2009.

After two stints — including one Mirror Ball win — on DWTS,  Rycroft finds that keeping up with her kids, Ava and Beckett, takes just as much energy as hoofing it — if not more!

“Ever since Beckett learned to crawl, he has been hard to catch,” she said of the 16-month-old. “He’s just constantly on the go! Beckett and I never sit still!”

The busy mom, who is now a judge and mentor on CMT’s Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders: Making the Team, showed us just how busy motherhood is at the OK! & Huggies Little Movers Diaper Pants Playdate at Kidville in Dallas and revealed her secret to making parenting a bit easier!

“I’ve loved watching my 16-month-old son grow and change from a newborn to a baby on the go. My secret weapon is Huggies Little Movers Diaper Pants, available at Target — they are more absorbent in the front, where my little guy needs it, as he moves, walks and plays!”

The delicious snacks, which are also Mom-approved healthy, came from Central Market in Dallas, and the kids provided all the fun!
