"I definitely have more empathy. And the motivation that having a child gives you ... you want them to be proud of you so badly. That's not just work, but my manners and how I treat people. You just carry yourself in a different way, or I try to."

"We're really hands-on moms. We are very present and active with our kids. Family comes before everything ... It's just who we are. It's what makes us happy. It's what we work hard for, so we can give them certain luxuries and have certain securities. It literally makes life worth living, having kids."

"The name True came from actually my grandfather. And my great-grandfather, his name was True. My grandfather's middle name was True, but I didn't know that because he passed away when my mom was 16. And so at dinner one night when I was saying I was looking for baby names, MJ, my grandmother, said, 'You should name the baby True.' And I was like, Oh my gosh, I actually love that name. And I love that there's like family history, there's a story behind it, and so True Thompson is born."

– on the origins of True's name, on Vogue's "Beauty Secrets"

"After having True I had to learn to balance my time more because when it comes to my baby, she is the most important person who deserves my attention. It was really just all about me learning to set more boundaries, manage my time, so I could still give her the attention she deserves."

"I've never had to juggle a baby and work at the same time, so it'll be interesting to see how I'll learn to handle everything. Women do it every single day, so I know I'll get through it — I'm just anxious because it's the unknown."

"I don't feel like I need to prepare for my birth by freaking myself out. I've seen over eight births live and in person. Women were made to do this! It's a very natural experience. I read my apps every day and I ask my doctor if I have any questions, so I'm honestly not that afraid. Of course I'm a little nervous to go into labor, but I'm trying to not overthink something that literally happens all the time."

"I'm with my sisters pretty much every single day, so it was hard to not be able to say why I was so sick or couldn't do certain things ... I believe there are certain things that need to be held private and for yourself. It was beautiful to have something that was just ours."

— on the reason she kept her pregnancy under wraps, on her website

"My house is the fun house for my nieces and nephews. We do arts and crafts and bake a lot. We like to play outside and in the pool, just being goofy. I have water balloons and we have water fights. I'm like a big kid myself. At night when I babysit them we have dance parties. I love to give their moms the evening off."
