“The flight from Paris to Los Angeles was just over 11 hours and the thought of having a flight without babies was like music to my ears,” she said.

‘Am I a horrible person for flying business class while my baby and boyfriend flew economy class?’ she asked at the beginning of the video.

Ellis noticed that she and Rob spend their money differently. While she likes to treat herself to jewelry and fly business class, he prefers to splurge on restaurants.

She recalled how she had to fly alone with Prim in the past and said she was delighted to have Rob help her before they headed to their separate seats.

Ellis explained that Rob wanted to fly with Prim because he had never done it before and that she happily let him.

“I said, ‘You know what? It’s completely fine with me. I’ll see you in 11 hours, honey,” she said.

‘Rob said my business class seat would be my last push gift, so obviously I was going to accept it. I wasn’t going to leave it like that.
