On being pushed by her mother as a child:

On being ready to help others on "The Biggest Loser":
"I've worked with the best nutritionists, pschologists and coaches in the world. All that stuff is stored right here [tapping her forehead] and is, like, bursting out."

On her relationship with Enrique Iglesias:
"Marriage isn't important to me. I'm in a happy relationship - that's all that matters. I believe in commitment. I believe in being open and trusting each other and respecting each other completely."

On her desire to be a mother:
"I absolutely want to have children, whether I have my own or adopt. I love taking care of people."
