“No election is ever just about one issue, but I care a lot about women’s rights and making sure parents have what they need to raise healthy kids. I have always cared, but having just had a child, I know how serious it is to be a mother. It’s an incredibly huge challenge. You need support. You need resources.”

Q: Goodhousekeeping interview on body image
A: I think, in a way, we’ve forgotten what a regular body looks like. There are people out there who are struggling, and I’m struggling, and it’s okay to come to terms with realizing it’s going to be a bit of a journey. I’m not blind: I see my body, I see the difference in shape, I see that I gained weight. But I also see with those same eyes that I have a beautiful baby boy, and an amazing little girl, and I am very happy. This is a new thing that I can change within my mind, that I don’t have to be swimsuit model anymore. I get to be a mommy, cook, and meet incredible people, and I’m happy to be going through this transition.
