“As she was planning to leave this earth, she wrote to me, ‘All this time you’ve been running away from being a parent, from having children, and now you’re forced to do it.’
“I say, ‘I’ll just play the cards life deals me and I’ll figure everything out.’ She said, ‘You always do that’ and she fell asleep and that was it.
“I look forward to seeing life unfold for them and I want to be as present in their lives as possible while still showing them what it’s like to have a career.”
The ‘Surreal Life’ star added: “I want them to know and have faith that they will be fine here, with or without me, or without a man, without a woman, without parents.”
“One thing that will forever be inevitable in this life is pain. It’s all about how you deal with it.”
