Last May, actress Love Don’t Cost a Thing spoke about how the coronavirus pandemic was a blessing in disguise.

Tip: She spent a lot more time with loved ones.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better time to be honest with you,” she told E! News. “I think it would be more difficult if I went straight back to work because there would have been a sense of guilt that would have really overwhelmed me if I couldn’t spend this time with my baby so it couldn’t have turned out to be a better one Time.

“I got audition calls a week after the baby was born … and I have this hectic mentality inside of me and I don’t want to burn out if I do too much.”

She added, “One of the best and most rewarding things that ever happened is to be a mother, and I don’t want to take that for granted.”
