Erin Molan's comments about motherhood and parenting are so refreshing

''It is the most amazing thing in the entire world times a billion but it is also really bloody hard.''

She recently celebrated her daughter Eliza's first birthday, but Erin Molan's first year of motherhood hasn't been all rainbows and smiles.
In fact, the Channel Nine sports presenter has opened up about the joys of motherhood but also the tough act of juggling life with a child and the pressure mums deal with on a day-to-day basis.
"It is the most amazing thing in the entire world times a billion but it is also really bloody hard, that is just the reality of it," Erin described being a mum to The Daily Telegraph.
"It is a constant juggle trying to get the balance right and failing a lot of the time. I just figure I love her more than life itself and for the moment, that is enough."
Erin went back to work on The NRL Footy Show just six weeks after giving birth and revealed she and her fiance Sean Ogilvy hired a nanny to help with the work, adding that women shouldn't feel so guilty about struggling with parenting.
"If I had heard more women being open, it would have not been such a shock to my system."

We love how Erin keeps it real when it comes to motherhood on her Instagram page.
Earlier this month, the sports presenter shared a cute snap of her daughter on a slide and captioned it, "The best mate and I hanging out after work... kinda miss the ol' venue of choice (the pub) but the park is kinda cool too..."

Erin gave birth to Eliza in June 2018 and while she stated "blessed doesn't even come close," when her little one arrived, her pregnancy wasn't all smooth sailing.
When Erin was six months pregnant she was rushed to hospital after fainting at work.
"I needed an ambulance – it wasn't pleasant," the 35-year-old told TV WEEK of the experience.
"The issue was low blood pressure combined with an early start. And because your body is pumping so much blood, you can get weak."
"I couldn't have cared less about myself," she said. "But I was worried I might have hurt my baby when I fell."
