She said: ‘Besides the fact that we are where we are, it’s hard to not feel the s**t and struggle that’s going on, in my home I’m very lucky that I have these two babies and my husband. They make it all better, and it’s changed my life.’

‘I’m convinced they’re going to forget who I am if I’m gone for a day. I have looked at my children and said “I am your mother!” 

‘I am nervous about leaving and going to work when that happens because there’s something really nice about being home with them all the time.

‘But they’re really young right now and I have that as an advantage, because they don’t really know when I’m not there. 

 ‘But that time is coming and I’ll do my best to balance and they will come first.’

Kristen and Avi were first spotted together in May 2016 during a romantic getaway to Hawaii.

She recalled: ‘I actually thought that he was going to propose to me because the guide was always with us, and this time he’s like “why don’t you go on this hike, just the two of you? I’ll give you my walkie talkie, it’ll be fine.” 

‘And I thought “OK that’s weird,” fully thinking that I’m getting proposed to.

‘We’re walking down this path and I see this head pop out of the grass and I’m like, oh it’s a large puma, like a very large puma. 

‘We could scream and no one would hear us. We were told that if you see a puma clap your hands, make a noise, don’t run, don’t turn around.

‘So we’re backing up and I’m thinking this is it. I’m crying, my boyfriend is shaking and these people are running after it taking pictures. Pumas don’t attack people there but we wouldn’t know that. 

‘Needless to say he didn’t propose to me there!’ 

Prior to meeting Avi, Kristen dated The Strokes drummer, Fabrizio Moretti for more than a year before splitting in 2013.
