One thing most people would be surprised to know about you: "I think at this point I’ve told people almost everything about me. I don’t have a very good filter sometimes and it just comes out. But if there was one thing, it would probably be that at home I sing all the time with and to my kids. I don’t know where it came from, but I make up ridiculous songs and we sing and dance to them together."
