TR said he would like to have more children.
“If we stopped having kids now, I know I’d wake up at 45 and go, ‘We should have had five more.”
“Because I really do want to be able to sit at a Thanksgiving or Christmas table with the most gigantic family on the planet.”
“They say that going from one to two is the hardest thing you’ll do as a parent.”
“But going from two to three and maybe four and five, like I’m just gonna embrace it and know that, like, we can accomplish anything.”
“Because there is nothing more fun than being around my children.” “And so I can only imagine it gets more fun the more that you have.”
