Angela Simmons on how her son is dealing with the loss of his father:

“He’s like, ‘Mommy,’ you know…He’s like, ‘Are we gonna ever get married? Like, is someone gonna marry us?’ You know, he’ll ask stuff like that. He’s like, ‘Mom’…and this was a touching conversation, because he told me, ‘I know my dad is in heaven. And I’m going to always have two dads, because I know my dad will be my dad. But Mommy, when can we have someone, you know? Like, when will somebody be there for us?’ It was a conversation he had with me this year. And I was just like, ‘Geez, he’s only five and this is how his brain is processing it.’” On how she answers his questions, “You know, I tell him, ‘when it’s time, when God  gives us the person we’re here, we’re ready.’ But you know, I just say, ‘we’re going to just pray and we got each other right now.’ And I tell him, ‘We got this, you know?’ Because he’ll be like, ‘Well, how come my dad’s not here to help me or bring me things?’ I’m like, ‘We’re good.’ Like, I tell him that, you know, we’re a team. And he understands it and he processes it, but he does ask.”

Simmons on her fitness journey that led her to having the confidence to post a bikini picture on Instagram:

“When I started my fitness journey, you know, like when I was younger, I can tell you where it even stemmed from. Like when I was 10 years old I remember being young and having journals and writing how I felt about myself. And I used to think I was fat. I would look at the journal and I would have a stick figure – what I wanted to look like and what I thought I looked like…I would read it and I’d be like, I want to be 70 pounds, but I’m 80 pounds – like craziness. You know what I mean? But I didn’t know…So I’m 19, right. I moved to LA. I learned about the healthy part of it all, but I went extreme. I was probably working out two, three times a day. And then I was eating very, very, very clean but it was, like, ridiculous. I got back home and my mom was saying, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ I was just like, ‘What are you talking about?’ I was like, ‘I’m fine’…There’s pictures of me, like walking down the street in LA and I’m like, I was really like a double zero and that was falling off and it was just because I was so…I just wasn’t…I didn’t know what I wanted yet. But then I learned how to really embrace my body and say okay, I can do this in a very healthy way and love who I am and be okay where I’m at, you know?”
