I feel like whatever I do will be worth getting away with. Me I want to get back into my life a little bit. Of course my priority is my daughter and I want to make sure I’m raising her. I’m not planning on giving up my career anytime soon, but I’m really looking forward to my career. I want to be there for the baby too.”
