“I feel so grateful to be a full-time mom, that’s what I’ve chosen,” Smart, 42, told Us Weekly at  the Dame Clothing launch party in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, November 7. “I know time goes by really fast. She’s almost two.”

The Just Friends actress shares Flora with her husband, Carter Oosterhouse. Smart and the Trading Spaces star, who tied the knot in 2011, welcomed their little girl via surrogate in December 2016, after years of fertility struggles.

As a family, the trio are happiest when they are enjoying nature together. “We love to go on hikes, we love to walk on the beach,” Smart told Us. “We’re in the garden. We’re outside.”

Though the former model is focusing on Flora for now, she and Oosterhouse, 42, are building an eco-mattress line called Smart Homes. “Right now she comes first,” Smart explained. “But I want to and I’m still continuing to work.” 

Occasionally, the California native is able to carve out some alone time to read a book or get a massage. “I feel like I don’t indulge enough,” she admitted. But Smart and the HGTV personality are good about scheduling date nights. “We go to dinners and see movies,” she told Us. “I think that’s so important.”
