Megan Fox is being blasted by fans over her parenting methods after the actress revealed that she has hired a night nurse to assist with her newborn.
Fox, who gave birth to her first child on Sept. 27, recently appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" where she spoke about the unexpected challenges that she has faced as a first-time mom.
The 26-year-old then went on to explain that she eventually hired a night nurse to ensure that she is well rested.
"I had no idea how difficult babies could be, so Brian [Austin Green] and I were exhausted," Fox told Leno. "I said to Brian, 'we have to get a night nurse or we're going to get a divorce because someone's got to sleep in this house or we're going to kill each other.'"
The "Transformers" actress admitted that while she had initially attempted to care for her newborn by herself, the challenge proved to be too much, forcing her to employ hired help.
"Having an infant is difficult. It's a lot of work and I didn't hire any help because I overestimated my own abilities," she explained.
Fox, who has been married to Green, 39, for two years insisted that despite the many challenges of motherhood, she enjoys it.
"I love it. It's my favorite thing that I've ever done so far, so I'm happy with it," Fox said.
Prior to the couple's son Noah Shannon Green, Fox had been a stepmother to the actor's 10-year-old son, Kassius, from his previous relationship with actress Vanessa Marcil. However, raising a newborn appears to be more challenging for the actress.
Critics flocked to social networking site Twitter, where an overwhelming majority slammed Fox over her candid statements about employing a nurse and divorce.
"Megan Fox hired a night nurse post-pregnancy so she could sleep. Stupid self-obsessed celebrities! Try being an actual mother you b---!" Bex tweeted.
"Megan Fox NEEDED a night nurse b/c 'her baby doesn't sleep at night+she would divorce without it.' It's called EVERYONE ELSE'S LIFE, Megan," Kristin Fleck tweeted.
"Megan Fox hires a night nurse so she can sleep... That's cheating," Danielle Fairbank tweeted.
