One of the things that she loves most about Eric she mentioned is the fact that he gave her two beautiful children. "He gave me two of the best blessings I could possibly imagine. Having a boy and a girl, I'm just blessed," she told fellow new mom Savannah Guthrie. "They inspire me."

The blonde beauty says that that her 2-year-old daughter Maxwell takes after her in being opinionated. But, the singer added, 
"She's feistier, definitely. I am much more reserved, and she's very opinionated, even though she's 2."

"I just feel like people can relate to me. I think it's very important for people to relate to someone who is a fashion designer."
