Kirstie has two children, ages 10 and 12, with ex-husband Parker Stevenson. Kirstie said she began to gain weight after Cheers and before she began Veronica's Closet, but really started to gain when she decided to take some time off.
"For the last four years, I thought, 'I'm going to take some time off and I'm going to be a terrific mother,'" Kirstie says. "'I'm going to be the best mother I can possibly be.' And, for me, being the best mother I could be, obviously, was holiday cooking! For me, a holiday lasts from, you know, right before Halloween until Valentine's Day."
