Frost told ET that the job caused a rift between herself and her fiancé Darrin Jackson.

"You love what you do, but you love the man that you're with, and you feel constantly torn because you love both," Frost said. "Darrin is production manager on this show, so he gets to work with us. It almost didn't work! The idea of it not working wasn't an option for me, or for Darrin, but the reality is that you have to live by what you preach as well."

What she preaches is tough love, and now families all over the world will be getting a dose of it when her new show, Jo Frost: Nanny on Tour debuts Jan. 28 on UPtv.

"I am ready [to have children]," Frost said. "This doesn't stop the work that I do, and I will be a working mother. So I'll let you know, I guess, when I'm pregnant."
