Speaking on Rove and Sam on Australia's 2DayFM, she said: "We do that a lot.
"[My kids] are addicted to it, they're constantly talking about it, and I'm introduced to these new Pokémon everyday.

"They got me to go shopping all over the mall to look for Pokémons. I was like, 'Well you know what, it's summer we have nothing to do today, let's go look for Pokémon!'"
