During an interview with The Cut, she revealed that she is a single mother and that Lex helps her make coffee.

“[Lex] helps me make coffee — he’s really into helping because he knows it’s mama’s morning juice. Then it’s shower time… I take Lex to school every single morning, no matter what. We have a little ritual where we just kind of sit on a bench in the classroom and are still together for two minutes before I go.”
