9. Did it take you a while to meet your husband?

"No, I really didn't have a boyfriend before Adam. I had known that I didn't want to mess around. I just wanted to find my husband. I kind of knew what I wanted."

10. A message for her fans?

"I encourage girls to really be patient in that area and to not fool around. In our journey, our marriage is so special. Waiting for Adam was one of the best decisions I ever made."
