“If I knew how hard parenting would be, how little time I would have for myself and how stressful it was BUT I didn’t know who my children would be, f*** no, I would NEVER choose to parent,” she said.

“But, given the same situation, but I knew my son, I knew my daughter, I knew who I was going to get and it was them? S*** I’d choose them every time. They’re the f***ing coolest.”

Amy continued: “Parenting is the f***ing worst. I’m attached to my children, I am not attached to parenting.
“It is my least favorite job I’ve ever had, but I love having those little f***ers in my life.”
