The reality TV star has always been an athlete. During her elementary school years, she was seriously into ballet, but she gave that up when she got to high school.

In September 2017, they welcomed their first child together, daughter Ember Jean.
The Little People, Big World star started journaling once she could write and has an extensive collection of journals as a result. “I have about 50 journals recording my life, prayers, and thoughts.

Audrey Mirabella Botti was born and raised in a suburb, Oregon. She has a sister and a brother and had a very outdoorsy upbringing. Her father taught Audrey and her siblings to ski before they could walk and their mother raised them to “know truth and love Jesus.”
1. First Job Out of College
Her first job out of college was in sales for Gallo Wine Company. She managed about 20 accounts in the Pasadena area, and she had the craziest hours! According to her, she worked from 3:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. everyday! “We lived in West Hollywood, so I commuted to work every day, and I worked from 3:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Yes, you read that correctly…and that means I woke up at 2:00 a.m. every day. My job consisted of driving in LA traffic, sucking up to grumpy people that work night shift, physically building alcohol displays, stocking the shelves with wine and hard alcohol, getting told ‘no,’ and wearing cheap slacks and shoes that hurt my feet. After working all night/morning, I spent my afternoon/evening working on my blog. Eventually, I reached a point where I was making sufficient money from blogging, took a leap of faith and quit the J-O-B,” she told School of Styling.
