She said,

"My husband and I, we’ve been across the country for both of our careers. We met at ESPN in Connecticut. We’ve moved to Alabama, and the Pacific Northwest and Seattle and Oregon, and then we came here to Boston."

Her life has changed a lot since she got married, of course in a positive way. The couple welcomed their first child; a daughter named Mabel in 2015, the night before Christmas.

She explained,

'It was crazy and it all happened so fast. She wasn’t due for another two weeks or so. A Christmas Eve surprise, that’s what she was.'

Mabel was, however, diagnosed with a severe coarctation in her aorta. She was admitted to Boston Children's Hospital and had open-heart surgery when she was only 13 days old.
