On loving being pregnant: “I think it was mostly the eating binges, though. John used to make this sandwich and leave it for me at midnight. I’d literally just grab it in the night and eat it in the dark. Miles was like 4.5lbs and I gained 60lbs. I had a good time!”

On airbrushing images: “Everyone Photoshops them out. It’s insane. And I don’t want anyone to feel like they’re the only ones. I was on a Victoria’s Secret shoot and it was a big turning point for me to see those women with scars and stretch marks and bruises. Who’s to say it’s even a flaw?”

On Donald Trump blocking her on Twitter: “I would have blocked me, too. I was doing this way before he was President. I just despise him. It’s like he’s on the wrong side of every issue. That takes talent. Even a broken clock is right twice, yes?”

On the difference between reality and social media: “There’s so much more than these fake-a** Instagram people. People get FOMO, or they feel bad about their bodies, and I get it. If I feel bad seeing certain things, what about that girl who has no connection to this industry? It makes me sad, because that’s not really how it is.”
