Susan: You describe yourself as a private person. Now, you're in very public role; you're the first lady of football. What has that been like?
Jen: Truly, it has no real effect on me as far as him being a different person versus the guy I met.
Susan: But what's it like for your being the spouse of such a high-profile person?
Jen: No different really.
Susan: Do you enjoy it?
Jen: I know sounds silly, but it's just he and I always.
Susan: What's it like for you to watch him coach? Is it stressful?
Jen: I'm so stressed. If we're winning, I have to leave the room or switch chairs. We're very superstitious.
Susan: We don't see Bret after a tough loss. How does he take it?
Jen: It's pretty tough. I can tell you, there's been times when we come home and it's a night game and we sit here on the couch and watch the games and he doesn't even want to change out of his suit.
Susan: As you look to the future, do you think about starting a family? Do you talk about kids?
Jen: Yes, we'd like to get through the summer first. We don't have an exact time set, but it will be sooner than later.
