At the time, Rumer was living with Demi and Ashton while they were trying to conceive, she says:
"[I] couldn't stand the idea...I think also, when she wanted to have another baby and then it wasn't happening, and there was so much focus on that, it was like 'Oh, well we're not enough," she adds.

However, after finding pictures of Demi's pregnancy, Rumer realised how insensitive she had been, she explains:
"I saw how big her stomach was, and I was like, 'Oh my god, I was so insensitive. I never once went to you and said, 'I'm so sorry' [or] 'Are you okay?'"
