Slim and trim, Govan is about to become the future Mrs. Gilbert Arenas she says, and here she shares some critical advice for her fellow future brides.
Personally speaking, what health routines do you employ to strengthen your mind and body?
Cardio. I try to remain active by playing sports daily, whether it’s basketball, tennis, swimming, golf, etc. I also think having a healthy sex life helps as well.
How do you assess areas in your personal life that are in need of improvement?
I’m honest with myself. I know I’m a work in progress — we all have flaws. I just make sure I’m the best mother and wife I can be, and I continue to evolve.
What is your daily media diet? What news sites do you visit most often, and why?
Honestly, I’m not into blogs. When I start my day, I go straight into mommy mode. I cook breakfast every morning, get the kids dressed and take them to school. When I do go online, I like to visit health and fitness sites and home décor sites. I’m really starting to get into interior design, and so all things related to home décor interestme.
What was it that initially drew you to Gilbert?
He had a quirkiness about him. I was like “hmmm, let me fix this!” (laughing) He was like my little project that I wanted to fix, I was like “let’s get you some braces, this hair’s gotta go,” [laughing]. I love him.
What is your best advice for future brides?
Don’t get married until you really know somebody. Most people get married because they’re “so in love” but that only lasts for so long, and then the honeymoon is over. Don’t marry someone unless you’re able to really be yourself around that person, if you can’t fart in front of them, then you’re not ready.
