Celebrity Parents Supermodel Niki Taylor on motherhood By Staff Author Published on July 31, 2006 12:00 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Being a single mother to 11-year twin boys seems daunting, but supermodel Niki Taylor seems to be handling the role with grace. Speaking to People Niki reveals how lucky she feels to be alive, let alone happy: "I love being a mom and the chaos it brings me … It reminds me how lucky and blessed I am." Niki divorced the twins’ father, footballer Matt Martinez, 10 years ago; a year after her sister Krissy died, and since then has battled drug addictions and a car accident that left her unconscious for six weeks. After the accident Niki put all her energy into her boys , Jake and Hunter, and models very little these days, "I have a good thing going on … We are only here for a short amount of time. You have to live your life. I know that." Thanks to CBB readers Jennifer, Tracey, and many others who emailed us last week.
