They saw both their parents in the morning and both their parents in the evening, and for 14 years. That was how we ran it because we knew it was right for those kids. If you did what was right for the kids, you were going to do what was right for you. It was simple.

After Trisha’s marriage with Garth, she became the stepmom to his three daughters. She has a great relationship with her stepdaughters.

They got the right amount of their mom in them, the right amount of me in them, and the right amount of Trisha’s influence in them as well. So I think everything happens for a reason at a time

Trisha also spoke about her relationship with her step-kids and said she considers herself a ‘bonus mom’ to them.

Garth gave me good advice in the beginning: Don’t try to be their mom and don’t try to be their best friend, you’ll find your way. And I think I did with each of them. They’re just lovely young women.
