Bethenny Frankel Says Her Daughter Has Softened Her

Bethenny Frankel says her daughter has changed her in many ways.

'The Real Housewives of New York' star gave birth to daughter Bryn in May and says that she's already a changed woman. “Bryn has definitely softened me,”  Bethenny has talked about having a tough childhood and says she's ready to give Bryn a much happier one.  "When you’re a child, you don’t really choose what your life is; your life is the life that is given to you. And with Bryn, I want it to be different.”  She continued:  “This is my time to shine now — through her, through giving her love and giving her a great life and all that I didn’t have.”

The new mom is certainly keeping a full schedule.  Aside from taking care of a newborn, she is filming two reality shows: 'Housewives' and 'Bethenny Getting Married'.
