The mother of one granted an interview with Hollywood Life during the premiere of Tyler Perry’s latest movie, "A Fall From Grace," with Netflix premiere slated for January 17.

Speaking to the news outlet

about her best motherhood experiences, the 35-year-old recounted:

"Three best things about being a new mom are when I get to watch my daughter grow, that we get to sing together. We sing songs from frozen all the time together. She makes me sing. And then the third best thing is that I get to learn, and I get to be a better person."

The actress also revealed that her daughter’s healthy appetite availed her the much-deserved excuse to indulge her love for eating.

Despite having great moments with her daughter, Zuri,

the star admitted that parenting

is a demanding process that entails sacrifices, requiring her to give up leisure interests like clubbing.

Naturi and her former boyfriend, Ben, welcomed Zuri, their first child, with much joy and happiness in July 2017.

Sharing her views about the downside of motherhood, Naturi pointed out that she no longer lived for herself as she was bound to surrender to the needs of her 2-year-old.

Admittedly, the actress is no expert on the parenting job, as she's still in the process of trying to get it together. However, with an excellent support team, the icon is making it work one day at a time.

In an interview with US Magazine, the icon shared:

"I have a good support team. Make sure you get help. People understand that it’s not easy being a mother and being a working actress or working woman, so I think I’m doing OK. I think I’m doing a decent job."
