We’re half-convinced Brooke Burke is a vampire — she never looks any older!
Brooke graced the cover of Redbook this month and talked about doing it all, fitness, and her partner David Charvet in the interview inside.
On doing it all
“When I was a new mom, I used to think that life was going to be balanced, and I strived for that. But life is crazy! I’ve got two little ones a year apart—my daughter Rain, 4, and my son, Shaya, 3—and two older daughters—Neriah, 11, and Sierra, 9—and a million things to do. I gave up on the expectation that everything was going to be picture-perfect. Balance is a joke.”
On fitting in fitness and finding "me time"
"You've got to figure out what works for you. If you only have 20 minutes, make it a kick-ass 20 minutes. Working out is my stress reliever and my me time. The way I see it, if you don't have 45 minutes a few days a week for yourself, you are in big trouble."
On date night with her partner, David Charvet
“It’s Familyville in my life, but David and I make sure to escape once a week. So maybe on a Sunday night, we’ll go out to dinner at a favorite Malibu restaurant. Or at home we get the candles, the music—the whole deal—and we close the bedroom door. We have a rule in our house that you have to knock on closed doors. Someday the kids might be like, “I smell the candles, I hear Maxwell playing…” but thank God they’re not old enough to figure that out yet. I do not want to have to explain that one!”
