"Oh my gosh, this has been the shortest and the longest year of my entire life," she recently told The Daily Dish about welcoming her daughter, Palmer Wimberly, in November 2017. "Everybody says the old saying is, 'The days are long, but the years are short.' And that is so true. And I also say Palmer is the greatest teacher I've ever had. Having a child forces you to see humanity and it forces you to grow and I'm so glad that I did it — but I'm not doing it again."
However, she's not sure her husband, Jason Wimberly, feels the same way. "I think Jason would have another one," she added. "I think he'd like to have a boy, but, no, not from me. Maybe if he has a second wife," she joked.
However, she's quick to gush about the joys of motherhood, noting, "You cannot put a price tag on that. [It's] the best feeling in the entire world: just to be loved by your own little child. It's really sweet and sappy."
Cameran, who still works as a real estate agent, opened up about how difficult it has been to find that right balance between her career and her life as a mom, a struggle her doctor husband did not have.
"We're socially conditioned in this country that when a woman pops out a kid, she has to make the choice whether she's going to stay home or go back to work. And the father, typically, not all the time, is the breadwinner in the house. It's very hard 'cause I went from working and being able to work as much as I wanted to to now, well, I've got to stay home and take care of this baby," she explained.
"And it's hard," she continued. "Women, we really are kind of screwed in a way in that we really can't have it all. There's no way to really have it all and it's all about finding that balance that works for you."
Cameran then went on to applaud any and all full-time, stay-at-home moms. "I will never be a stay-at-home mom. Kudos to women that do it," she said. "I can't even imagine 'cause staying at home with a child is 10 times harder than any job you will ever have. That's the hard job."
And being a mom has certainly changed her stance on how she views moms who do choose to not work outside of the home. "I was one of those bitches before I had Palmer who'd be like, 'Oh, must be so easy to stay [at home]. Oh, must be nice.' Yeah, right, I will eat crow on that."
Motherhood also altered how she experienced the world of Southern Charm and the experience of filming Season 6 with her pals. "I would say that I probably felt [the tension] the least out of everybody just 'cause I was so immersed in new motherhood, but yeah I definitely felt the tension," she teased. "I think being a mom you realize what's really important and other things that might have in past gotten to you or bothered you, you shrug off and let go 'cause you're hyper focused on this little being — and you're also tired all the time."
Southern Charm returns May 15 at 8/7c.
