SHE CAN'T DO IT ALL
In a 2018 interview with PEOPLE, when Valentina was not yet born, Campos-Duffy opened up about her life as a married mother of eight and a regular Fox News Channel contributor.
"In terms of doing it all, I don't do it all," she admitted. During the interview, Campos-Duffy also shared the advantage of having eight children.
"What happens when you have a lot more kids is you gain more confidence," she said, "you figure out what's necessary, what's not, and you learn to manage your time better as a mom with kids who are over the age of 10."
THEY ARE A TEAM
Talking about how she organizes her work commitments while running the family's lively household, Campos-Duffy said that she's fast to do a lot of appointing and that their family works like an organization — they all contribute.
According to Campos-Duffy, her children comprehend that they are a team and that they need to cooperate, so she doesn't do everything all by herself.
Valentina has Down syndrome. She was expected to be born with complications.
Campos-Duffy shared that she has somebody who assists with the baby setting when she travels. She also praised her husband by calling him an "amazing partner."
On October 1, 2019, Campos-Duffy and Duffy welcomed their ninth child, Valentina. In an Instagram post, the acclaimed host described her youngest daughter as the "sweetest" and the "most perfect thing" they have ever seen, PEOPLE reported.
Although Valentina arrived one month ahead of schedule, her doting mother said that she's doing great. The baby was born via C-section.
As reported by Today, Valentina has two holes in her heart. Campos-Duffy said that the baby will need surgery in three to four months.
Duffy needed to concentrate his time and consideration on his family. He shared on Facebook that Valentina will require even more love, time, and attention because of her health issues.
In his post, Duffy said that it's a hard decision since he really loves being a congressman. However, he added, it was the correct choice for his family, which is his first love and obligation.
