“Now that you’re a mom will it be bittersweet to go back to work?” – the fan asked.

“So tricky because you know I don’t talk about this stuff…But I will say I feel really, really blessed,” Kerry Answered. “I just feel really blessed that I’m kind of living extraordinary dreams come true in my work life and in my personal life.”
