So while some people might judge me and spread rumors around me, most of you support me, and that says a lot about this world and the place. we are aiming for. “

“I feel like I’ve known him forever, and we’re very comfortable with each other,” she said. “We just have a great relationship, he’s great. He’s super caring and understanding, and he really motivates me and supports me. “
