The Real Housewives of Orange County lawyer even offered some insight into her family life on Instagram this week: "There’s nothing more important than family! Shelby is at [Brigham Young University in Utah] right now and [Chanel] lives with us 50 [percent] of the time and is an amazing 13 year old!"

And, Emily has always made it clear that she wants to raise her children to be their best selves. "Hopefully I can inspire all three girls to be confident and always kind and to work hard and get an education so they can achieve all of their dreams," she shared about raising the young women in her life.

She's also made it clear that she loves having her little boys as well: "There’s not much sweeter in life than the love between a mother and son."

And, despite some ups and downs after a decade of marriage, it's clear that Emily and Shane are dedicated to their beautiful family. "And even after a decade together.... we are still committed to each other, and committed to raising five kids (3 together and my two step-daughters) with heaps of love and laughter and the very best of parenting intentions to guide them to become kind, compassionate, inspiring, and educated humans," she previously shared.
