Naomi WatssHollywood actress Naomi Watts is struggling to juggle her duties as a mother-of-two with her career and feels she is ‘failing’ at both the jobs.

The King Kong star returned to work just weeks after giving birth to her second child, son Samuel, in December 2008, and shot new drama Mother and Child. She, however, fears she is coming up short on both aspects of her life, Contactmusic reported.

“Every single day, I second-guess myself as a mother. I chose to be a mum. It’s something I’ve always wanted, but I feel torn between two worlds,” said Watts, who is also mother to a two-year-old son Sasha.

“I am not reaching the same depths and heights that I used to reach in movies because I’m a parent of two small children, who desperately need me. It’s frustrating because I feel like I’m failing a bit on both ends,” she added.

However, the 41-year-old beauty, married to actor Liev Schreiber Watts, is refusing to let her worries stop her from expanding her family in the future.

“I would love to have an endless brood of children. I grew up in chaos. I feel comfortable in chaos. Whether or not I’ll ever adopt remains to be seen, but I totally believe in adoption,” Watts said.
