I'm very spontaneous when it comes to that. What the universe thinks will be, will be. Who knows what's in the future? But, as of now, [I'm not planning on having more kids]."

She explained: "It just shifts your focus so much when you have a child.
In business, in general, and as an artist, you're in a sea of extreme narcissism. It is your focus. You are your work, your focus and goals.
Being a very ambitious girl at a very young age and having worked my whole life, [having my kids] was a time where it wasn't about [me] anymore.

You're part of these amazing little people's lives, and it teaches you patience and teaches you things about yourself that you don't like, that you want to work on. It's a constant journey of learning.
They teach me so much and they challenge me all the time to be better."
