My daughter makes me live in the present and she makes me want to be the best version of myself every day.

As for Jon, Julia say he’s an "amazing" father who never fails to surprise her.

He’staught me a lot about parenting. He’s blown me away in terms of howdevoted somebody could be to constantly thinking about what’s the bestthing for her.
