"I'm very proud of all my children, and I spend a lot of time with them. All the fathers are very close to their children and the kids are very close to all the parents. The exes and everybody gets along.

"If I co-parent a child, as I did Kalen and Jenni, I'm incredibly close to those mothers and their stepfathers. Jenni's sisters from her mother's following marriage will spend Christmas or New Year's with me. My twins refer to Kalen's two brothers from his mother's then-marriage as their brothers from another mother."

"I'm the one that likes to say, 'Why don't you have a date night and leave the baby with me?' I've baby-proofed the whole house again; it's like starting all over.

"Being a grandparent is fantastic because you get to borrow the children for an intense amount of time, and then you get to hand them right back. I loved watching all the kids deal with the pregnancies and now watching them as parents."
