According to People, Vanessa became a first-time mom at 24, when her career was booming. Therefore she had to be a working mom.

The "Ugly Betty" star, however, made sure to be always present in her kids' lives. According to Daily Mail, the "Dreamin'" crooner made headlines in 2015 after she tied the knot with her lover, Jim Skrip, in a July Fourth celebration.
