On her engagement:

I’m very happy. I’m definitely on Cloud 20. At one point I gave up on love, so to have this feeling and for it to be like the first time, with the person that I feel like God has created for me to be with, it feels magical. And I want it to stay like this so every married couple that we have been meeting over our vacation, I’ve been asking them, ‘So what’s the secret?’ They’ve been giving me a lot of great tips. Communication is the key, clearly, so we’ll see what this thing does.

If she knew that Ryan was going to propose

It was a surprise but I felt something was gonna happen. It was definitely a surprise. Your imagination does the actual moment no justice. I said, ‘Oh my God!’ so many times that I forgot to say ‘Yes!’ He was like, ‘Yeah, are you gonna marry me or not?’ It was good.

On Her Dream wedding

We have a lot of homies that probably won’t come if we have a destination wedding so I wanna keep it as local as possible. I haven’t set a date yet but I definitely have been imagining it and thinking about what it will be like so I’m gonna get started.

On if she has any advice for Kim K on motherhood

I’m very happy for Kim and very happy for Kanye. I was looking at pics of them online and they look so happy. I’m really happy for her. The key to being a good parent is to remember that you were once a child and I think if you have that perspective, everything flows.
