Lauren Conrad claims her life is a ''bit of a mess''.

The 'Hills' star thinks it is ''funny'' that people think her life is perfect and that she has ''things very put together''.

She said: ''It's really funny to me when people have this idea that I have things very put together. My life is a bit of a mess, and I don't broadcast that, but I like it that way ... I like to focus on the prettier parts of life, but that doesn't necessarily represent all of it.''

And the 32-year-old television personality - who has son Liam with her husband William Tell - has been working hard to ''delegate'' in life as she got too caught up wanting to ''handle everything'' herself.

She added to Redbook magazine: ''I wanted to handle everything myself - I felt that nobody would care about my business as much as I would. But when you take on too much, it's hard to do everything well.

''It got to the point where it was too much for me to handle. I had to learn to delegate. If you can focus on the areas where you know you can't be replaced and bring in help in the areas you can, that's where you find success.''

Meanwhile, Lauren previously confessed she feels ''overwhelmed'' being a mother.

She explained: ''I think that you can become a little overwhelmed, just being at home with your baby all day. Honestly, it's exactly as everyone describes it. It's the best and hardest thing you'll ever do. It's amazing. You fall so in love with your tiny person - it's a whole new life. I took a photo of [Liam] yesterday. I'm trying to take a monthly photo - all of the good moms do it - I'm really trying. So I took it and I looked at it next to his one-month photo, and he had just changed. Like he was a completely different baby, and I was like, 'Oh my God.' But seeing how fast they change, you realize it's so important not to miss anything.''
