“They were both born in Nashville, and we live in Tennessee now. They have a mix of Australian and Southern [accents], which is really cute, but my mama always says, ‘I can’t understand her,’ because . . .she says, ‘Hey, y’all!’ to her grandparents. [Faith still speaks in] baby garble but I understand everything she says.” – Nicole on her daughters.
“[Life is] very, very peaceful. [But I struggle between] giving my life to my lover and my children [and] giving my life to my artistic desires…because I’m passionate, so I want to be able to give completely to both, and that doesn’t work always. It’s a push-pull. It’s uncharted. My husband and I are in uncharted territory because we’re trying to find artistic expression but also we’re incredibly connected as a family—we’re very, very tight, very, very close, and I have a very, very primal protection of my family.” – Nicole on family life.
“I’m amazed that I have been a mother for so much of my life now. It’s odd, but because of them I don’t feel 45. All my kids are highlights of my life. They are all of my biggest joys.” – Nicole on motherhood.
“Being a husband and a father is a horrendous responsibility but it’s a beautiful opportunity as well. I’m always balancing the need to encourage the girls’ freedom and not impose on their own journey with that primal need of the father and husband to protect and guide them every step of the way.” – Keith on fatherhood.
