“How could I ever prepare myself to be away from my kids? It’s too terrifying for me to even think about,” she admitted to the magazine. “I’ve had many sleepless nights worrying about being separated from my family. My family is everything.”

In addition to the upcoming sentencing (husband Joe, 42, faces 46 months in prison for five federal fraud charges), the family recently had to deal with the sudden death of Joe’s father Frank, 63.
