“It’s been tough, it’s been a roller coaster…I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t hard,” she shared with E! News.

Despite experiencing a tragedy, Kristin knew that she couldn’t stop being a hands-on parent for her kids especially baby Saylor.

“When you lose someone that you love, it obviously makes you realize how precious life is,” Kristin shared on Good Morning America.

I’ve just been thankful for my family and everyone in my life.”
