By far, we can say that we were successful to pull out some information about her husband. However, she is very private when it comes to her personal life. She has kept her professional life and personal life separately.
So, how much she seems to open about her professional life, it is not the same regarding her personal life. Thus we couldn’t dig the information relating to her children. Don’t be disappointed for now because we believe that she will open up about it shortly.
According to her wiki, she has reached the age of fifty-three now. She was born in Cleveland, Ohio and her nationality is American. Her grandparents on both sides came from Ireland.
So, she is rooted in Irish ethnicity as well. She enrolled herself in Northwestern University for Bachelor of Science in Education degree. She has got a great height of five feet ten inches (1.78 meters). With the combination of this height and good body figure, she looks utterly stunning. Thus, many find her hot and sexy.
