The fact my relationship with my son is so good makes me forgiving of my father and also appreciative.
I think people that have fear that ‘Oh if I have a kid I won’t be able to do this and I won’t be able to do that.’ It’s kind of the opposite. It really gives you energy. It makes people better.

I know my dad is a big Internet freak and he’s been known to be a Wikileaker.
I would have to say the person with whom I am most in love is definitely my son Everly Bear. Although I’m his dad I’m also his friend.
