In her long writing, the author acknowledged people's "natural curiosity" about her personal life and coping with the newness.
She tried subtle ways to answer or ignore questions related to her ex-husbands after getting her social media inbox flooded by her curious fans.
However, Heidi shared she understood the intention behind the question she was posed regularly after interacting with some fans.
According to her, it is fair for people to question her relationship status after seeing herself and her ex-husbands hanging out with their kids and participating in family events.
She said her former husband, Derek Solomon, played a huge part in helping her and Chris's fitness activities for years.
While Heidi mentioned that her family is her business, she understood why people asked her questions related to her private life.
