Examiner: Congratulations on the pregnancy of your second child, how has this pregnancy been for you as compared to the first?

Examiner: What is one fashion trend that you wish would just go away?
KC: “Socks with pumps is just starting to become a trend, and I'm not a fan. I wear a dress with heels to elongate my legs, not cut them off with a sock!”
