Inside the spread, she gets candid about her marriage with Russell Wilson, achieving success, expanding her family and so much more.

On Russell Wilson:

“He’s my sounding board for pretty much everything I do in my life,” she says. “He doesn’t want to see me fail. He’s got my back. That’s an awesome feeling.”

On achieving success:

“I’ve heard a lot of no’s, and I still hear them to this day,” she says, “but I’m not taking my eyes off the goal. I always say, ‘I am a woman of ambition on a mission, and I’m gonna get it.’ ”

On expanding her family:

“I want to have as many kids as I can,” she reveals. “My kids keep me young. They keep me active. They give me purpose. They just make it all make sense.”
