Tess recently admitted she works hard to instill a work ethic and inspire her girls through 'strong' women like Oprah Winfrey.

"I've made a point throughout my girls' lives of reading them bedtime stories about strong, innovating women, whether it's Oprah Winfrey or Frida Kahlo," she said during an interview with Women's Health for their April issue.

"It's quite a feminist house, really... we've instilled a work ethic and they take nothing for granted, but I teach them that women can do anything, because they can."
