As part of their legal battle, Curtis said she needed more time with her son Harper because he relied on her body to be fed, to which a judge told her to use a breast pump and send it with the child when he visits his father in Minnesota.

Curtis told People magazine,

Every single day I have to weather criticism about how my child is too old to breastfeed, but when he weans, it's going to be his decision. I truly believe it's the child's choice.

Nicole Curtis currently lives in Detroit, Michigan, where she has been filming her hit HGTV home renovation show. Curtis was married to Steve Lane and also has a son Ethan with him.
