On being a mom: “A lot of people ask me, ‘Your career’s poppin’ and you have a baby. How do you do it? How can you manage it all? How are you so happy?’ When you get your prize, you’re like, ‘Oh my God, this was worth every stitch!’”

On stretch marks: “A lot of women are out there posting their stretch marks, and they write, ‘I love my tiger stripes, they gave me my boy.’ I love my baby, but I can’t look at my stretch marks and honestly say, ‘Wow, I love them,’ you know? It feels like I’m telling my truth. I heard that when you have a baby, you get more creative, and my lyrics are changing. Instead of writing songs to make everyone feel better, I’m writing about how I feel in this moment. But it’s not like every day is sad. It’s more like: Yes, I am a badass, but this ain’t easy, and I have to get up and keep going.”

On how hard breastfeeding has been: “When you google it or look it up on YouTube? They don’t tell you why it can suck. I’ll tell you why it might suck! Sometimes your nipples aren’t big enough for your baby’s mouth. I didn’t know that was humanly possible!”

On growing her family: “I’m gonna try to get to four. I’m gonna try to create four. We’ll see what happens after three. I’m not doing less than that. I need three… When I saw Riley in the NICU, all hooked up to these wires, I just saw the most adorable baby redhead I’ve ever seen. And I thought, ‘Oh! We have to make more.’”
