In 2019, the former Big Brother star opened up about how she navigates her ADHD diagnosis while being a mother.

Skye shared her struggles on Instagram and said it’s hard to do the simplest of things, like packing a baby’s bag for a family vacation. 

‘I actually think this should be a fact that ADHD people would struggle more having babies than other normal people, because our brains are constantly on overdrive and then you throw a baby in the mix,’ she said at the time.
