SNEAK PEEK: Martha MacCallum Sits Down With Ann Romney to Talk Motherhood, Life on the Trail, and Battle With Multiple Sclerosis
As families across the country get ready to celebrate Mother's Day this Sunday, Martha MacCallum sat down with a mom who hopes to be first lady by next mother's day -- Ann Romney. In this special interview, she opens up about the trying schedule of a presidential campaign, her husband, and several personal moments on her battle with multiple sclerosis.
Of the latter, Romney compared the diagnosis to "a rug being pulled out from underneath you," saying that in the moments that followed, she had to reevaluate her life and what she was left with.
"I thought, 'who am I? Who
am I really? Am I just what is identified as a teacher, a mother, a professor, a business person - those labels that we have ... if everything is taken away from us, what are we left with?"
It was then that she says her husband, Gov. Mitt Romney, helped her make it through. "That's where Mitt gave me the greatest strength ... because he was the one reminding me that it wasn't what I did, why he loved me; it was who I was."
The full interview will air tomorrow on America's Newsroom, but check out the sneak peek below:
