At the end, the realization is that she had to get to a place in her life where she could drop her guard and make peace with the fact that whether she had a small amount of time, that she had to kind of live it completely through, instead of living by the rules.
From the moment this baby came into our home, those two dogs have never been more in love. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever witnessed. People keep saying, 'Oh, you're a single mom.' I'm like, 'Actually, I'm not. I've got two boys helping.'
I am a relationship girl. That's kind of just how I'm made... When you're in my life, it's actually very contained.
I can only hope to be 10 percent of the mom mine was to me. She encouraged me to be confident and enjoy life. That's what I want for my son.
I grew up in South Africa and I would look at maps and we were at the bottom of the world. There was this whole thing up there. I was always reading encyclopedias about the world. So travel was something I was always attracted to.

I think today women are very scared to celebrate themselves, because then they just get labeled.
I'm always open to a relationship, but I'm not putting those feelers out there now.
I've always known I wanted a family.
Marriage equality is about more than just marriage. It's about something greater. It's about acceptance.
My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.
So far I'm not surprised by anything about being a mom. It's all pretty great - but that's what I expected.

When they watch a movie and they know that you're in a relationship, you just kind of watch that constantly.
You always have this fear in a movie of just being somebody's woman.
You can never get to a place of comfort in this business. As soon as you hit that little cushy spot, somebody's gonna kick you out. So I have a constant need to do it better.
You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
