“My family is very healthy. We try to be very healthy with complex carbs, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. We try to eat organic, not a lot of dairy, so they’re into the rice milk and the almond milk and a lot of legumes. They’re really healthy kids.”- mama Kimora on her “healthy” kiddos.
“We are the best of friends. And that’s very helpful to the girls.” – papa Russell on his relationship with his ex.
“My family is the most important thing to me. I’ve never missed any type of performance—not one recital, not one karate belt. If there’s a toe being tapped or a tune being whistled, I am there.” – Kimora on making time for family.
“I tell them that their job as they become more famous is to use their celebrity to help others. Use their good benefit, if it’s money, to benefit others. And that that’s gonna make them happy, and that any hoarding, holding onto anything will result in sadness and they believe me, I think. So, that’s a constant discussion.” – Russell on teaching his girls to give back.
