She also added: 

 "I was really letting the chips fall as they might because I do think so much is up to God. I always said, ‘I don't know how this is going to end up. I don't know if I'm going to get pregnant and have twins. I don't know…if somebody's going to leave a baby on my doorstep.' But I really did think that down the line, Peter and I would adopt a child. That was always part of the plan."
