Sarah Michelle Gellar may be a celebrity, but she still faces the common challenge that many women face: balancing a career with motherhood.

The 34-year-old actress recently went back to work filming the CW series Ringer after taking some time off to care for her daughter Charlotte Grace, whom she gave birth to back in September 2009.

“It’s a learning curve, it’s definitely a learning process,” she told People magazine on Wednesday at a charity event in Los Angeles providing 40 expectant wives of military men with baby products such as cribs and bedding.  “My hat goes off to anyone that juggles all of it because it’s very hard. You always feel like there’s a part of you that’s not giving enough to one, whether it’s work or your family or your charitable donations.”

Luckily for Gellar, she doesn’t have to do it alone. US Weekly reports her husband Freddie Prince Jr. is filling the void at home, taking on the role of a stay-at-home father.

Gellar said her husband is quite happy about the shift.

“He and Charlotte have too much fun,” she said. “I’m jealous!”
