“What am I gonna say? You can’t do that? If she wanted to, that’s her enjoying her life. It’s not like I’m gonna deal with it easy. I’m gonna have to deal with feelings that arise, some insecurities that pop up from childhood, from high school, from whatever.

“And I navigate through that – and I love her. I love her so much that I’m like ‘If that was something you felt you needed to do, that’s okay.’
