“A lot of things make me happy. But I feel unbelievably happy when my nine-year-old stepson tells me ‘I’m beautiful’. He is one of the most beautiful things about my life,” she told thesun.co.uk.
The 25-year-old star married actor Brian Austin Green in a private ceremony in Hawaii in 2010, and since then she has enjoyed a strong bond with his nine-year-old son.
“When I started living with Brian, his son was only two and I was 18. But ever since I’ve felt like we’ve created this family together. I’ve basically been looking after Kassius since he was three and that’s part of my world that very few people really ever understood about me.
“I love being a stepmom and I feel that the experience grounds me when nothing else makes sense in my life,” she added.
