Quotes:

I actually don't meet many men because they are, I guess, afraid to approach me or think that I'm from another planet

I love my engagement ring. It is the only thing I wear to bed!

I know one day I'll be considered too old. I think 40-year-old women actually look more healthy and fit than some girls in their 20s. I've met women who have way better bodies in their 40s because they've been working on them for all these years.

I love being pregnant. You can do whatever you want. You don't feel guilty, because I used to feel guilty about having a day off. And, you know, something really strange happened to me. Before my pregnancies, I was someone who had to watch their weight.

Supermodels, like we once were, don't exist any more.
