Shortly after welcoming James, The Office alum opened up to PEOPLE about how life-changing, “nuts” and difficult” becoming a mother was, as well as the inherent guilt that comes with going back to work for the first time.

“It’s very complicated because you feel guilty either way, but I think that’ll be a lifetime of feeling guilt,” Kemper said of returning to film Kimmy Schmidt as a new mom. “No matter what you do, I think that’s just what happens when you’re a parent.”

Still, the My Squirrel Days author wouldn’t change a thing about how her existence has completely transformed, noting how “Things take on different significance, in a good way.”

“You’re forced to not think about yourself, which is great for me because I don’t like to think about myself,” she explained. “And now everything is put into perspective, which is healthy.”
