The new mother was nervous towards the end of her pregnancy, and admitted she was relying on the help of friends who had already made the leap to parenthood. Kristen, 32, had recently said, "I'm gathering advice from everyone. I have a lot of friends with kids and work with a lot of people with children, so I'm just asking what's their best bit of advice. The nice thing is that, hands down, every person I know that has ever had a kid has looked at me with confidence and said, 'Oh, this is the best thing you'll ever do with your entire life.' So, that's nice to know."
