‘I’m not making the drive with her. She’s driving with her dad, but she’s taking my car which was my car as my graduation present car and so she’s going to be driving that. It was just too painful.

‘I don’t think I could go through the driving away from campus again. So if there’s anybody else going through this we’re all in it together.’

Shields noted that she needed get her ‘roots done’ before crying: ‘Oh it’s so hard, I miss her already. Our babies. This is what you want. You raise them so that they leave you.’
