Vanessa Mathison is no stranger to the spotlight — having been a model for 18 years prior to having her children, she understands the weight of celebrity. But her latest endeavor, partnering with Niccole Kroll on the KEA + JOBY clothing line, has taken her from modeling the fashions to designing them!

Happily married to All My Children actor and Dancing With the Stars competitor Cameron Mathison, 38, and proud mom to Leila Emmanuelle, 19 months, and Lucas Arthur, 4 ½, it would seem Vanessa has it all. CBB got the chance to speak exclusively with Vanessa just last month and got the low down on KEA + JOBY’s new lines, how motherhood has changed her, and just how she and Cameron make it work.
