In March, Harlow opened up about being a working mom in an essay for LinkedIn, admitting, “Some days are really hard.”

“Some days are easier than others,” she wrote. “But every day is a blessing – and realizing that has been incredibly important. Equally important has been the realization that being a working parent is messy.”

Harlow added, “My kid and family come first. Then work. Then life. Then laundry and dinner. Life is a little messier – but it is messy in the best way.”
