HER BIRACIAL CHILDREN

Despite her busy schedule, Faulkner is also a mother to two beautiful girls, Bella and Danika. Recently, she opened up about raising interracial kids, especially given the diversity of beliefs and cultures that she and her partner have.

"It's beautiful for any parent to get the opportunity to have those loved ones in our lives. I'm with someone who is religiously Jewish and racially different from me."
