"Relationships do change throughout the course of your life, and I always think in terms of relationships changing and evolving rather than starting and stopping."

she further added;

"Kids never go away from your life, and if you've been married, that person probably never goes away either. You never get rid of anyone and they never really get rid of you!"

"I try to do everything from the viewpoint of what's best for my kids. I have three kids and two great dads and it's not always easy, but you have to try to be a little selfless and we manage just fine."
