It seems being a mom-of-three isn’t always stress-free for Jennifer Garner!

The 43-year-old actress — who is a mother to daughters Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and son Samuel, 4 — candidly shared her parenting advice with dad-to-be Seth Meyers during a Thursday, March 17 appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. And, frankly, she didn’t hold back her feelings at all!

“You’re going to struggle,” she told Seth, who is due to welcome his first baby with wife Alexi Ashe this spring. “It’s going to suck just like for everyone else.”

Though Jen admitted motherhood can be overwhelming at times, the mom-of-three still appreciates every second she spends with her three little ones. “The great thing about kids is the minute you show up in your own house, your kids don’t care what you’ve been doing all day,” the Miracles From Heaven star told E News! during a previous interview. “They just go, ‘Hey, mom, she did this, I want that… let’s read this book,’ so they force you to be in the present.”
