Megan Fox is trying to keep her kids out of the spotlight.

The Jennifer's Body alum, 37, joined Alex Cooper on her podcast Call Her Daddy and opened up about how she feels about her three kids — Noah, 11, Bodhi, 9, and Journey 6 — joining her in the industry. Fox has been largely private about her kids, whom she shares with ex Brian Austin Green, and chooses to keep them off of her social media.

Asked about how she feels as a mother knowing that people try to get to her kids through her, Fox says she "loses a lot of sleep about that, especially because I know one of them is going to be in the public — probably all three of them."

"They're drop-dead gorgeous kids and both of their parents are actors in the industry so it's likely they're going to have some type of public platform at a certain point. I worry about that every day."

Fox notes she hasn't talked to her kids yet about her relationship with the public.

"My oldest is 11, and my kids weren't raised with screens, and they don't have iPads or anything like that or phones. I can't keep that up forever, eventually, that will happen, I'm trying to delay it as long as possible, but when they get a little bit older," Fox says.

"It's still too early and I don't want to put the weight of my experience on them. I want them to have their own experience and I don't want to pre-load it by being like, 'This is all the suffering that Mommy's been through,' " she explains.

In September, Green discussed his co-parenting situation with the star, chatting with his wife Sharna Burgess about their relationship.

"And [Megan's] very much a part of our life, and we'll always be connected because of the kids," Burgess said during the couple's appearance on the Whine Down with Jana Kramer podcast. "So we are all family. So there's no bad feelings there to be like that cannot be in this house."

"Megan is in our home," Green said. "She'll come sometimes when she's dropping off or picking up the kids and she'll come in."

"And hang for a little bit," Burgess added.

"And she'll be holding Zane and it's like, we are one big family," Green said, referencing the couple's 20-month-old baby Zane. "You know, family defines itself obviously in different ways."

"But with her, we do share so much and she now shares so much with Sharna, and they have an amazing connection and friendship and mutual respect and love for each other because of that."
