“Being a mother’s the best job in the world, and probably the most difficult, but the most important job in the world,” Etheridge said. “You always know your children come first. They know me, they know what I do, I take them on the road with me… probably the hardest thing I do is to balance [my] personal and professional [lives].”

Dancing With the Stars airs at 8/7c Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC.
