Wasn’t Brad going to do a cameo in Salt?
Brad was going to be that motorcycle guy and then call me a bad name before he sped off. But he was watching the kids that day and that’s always more important.
So let’s get to the rumors: Pregnant? Adopting another child?
No, nothing to report. I know the papers either wants me pregnant or breaking up. I think it’s very important to give our children the individual attention they need now before expanding our family.
How do you and Brad give six kids enough individual attention?
You just try to feel them. At different times, different children need you. You must listen to them. Brad and I are also lucky because there are two of us. We can spread the attention around. For example, all of the older children came to Cancun with us last week and then I came back home and it was time for the babies. I take the girls out for a day of shopping and the boys have special time with Dad.”
Do the kids play one of you off the other when one says “no?”
We’re a united front. They can’t play mom against dad. That never works.
How hard is it having twin toddlers?
Toddlers can really run fast. Zahara can easily out-run me. But the twins have this deal where they run off in different directions at the same time. So, we have gates all over inside the house. Brad and I will collapse at the end of the day knowing that we got our running in for the day even with the gates. We don’t need to go to the gym.
How do you deal with the ever-present paparazzi?
Salt and I do the same thing. We try to keep our heads down and just get out of there.
