And the Dancing With The Stars pro shared that family ranks number one with her.

The DWTS pro, who moved with her family to Florida recently, added, “Leo’s at an age where he needs consistency and dependability. And he hasn’t had that ever since he’s been born. So, we’re just really trying to give him that right now.”
