On Blue's help during labor:
"We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn't think about my own pain."

On her instincts before Blue's birth:
"I felt very maternal around eight and I thought I couldn't become more until I saw the baby... But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child."

On her return to the stage post pregnancy:
"I'm still completely nervous. I still feel pressure."

On reading articles about herself:
"Don't scroll down! You're definitely going to get your feelings hurt."
