"I look into my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way," she told CBS Sunday Morning in a preview of an interview airing Sept. 24. "If they say, 'You can change something in your life?' I wouldn't change absolutely anything."
As for whether that includes divorce from the former NFL star after 13 years of marriage last October, the 43-year-old, as someone whose parents have been married for 50 years, explained, "It's not what I dreamed of, not what I hoped for.

"When you feel good, you're a better mom, you're a better friend, you're calmer, you're more patient, you're more loving, you're more grounded," she explained. "So you can't feel guilty about prioritizing yourself. Because that's loving you and loving the people you love the most, which are going to be impacted by how well you are. Because if you're sick, everyone's hurts."
