Jenna Dewan is an actress, author, dancer and producer, but above all else, she is a mother, who is also currently pregnant with her second child. And she says that motherhood has changed the way she has approached her career.

“My [daughter] Everly changed [everything] for me,” Dewan said at TheWrap’s Power Women Summit in Los Angeles on Friday. “Now I think, ‘What can I do to be there for her, and how long will I be away for a project?’ I say no to a lot now,” she said. “When you are a dancer, you are a hustler by nature… I was scared but the universe was like, ‘We got you.’ I’m doing what I love more but I don’t have to say yes all the time.”

Her second pregnancy is more “relaxed” for her although her life “is crazier,” and she credits her amazing support network of her mother, her girlfriends and her partner, Steve Kazee, for her easy pregnancy (that, of course, still comes with her cravings).
