‘Personally, I’m thinking about a family and when to settle down and have all that as well,’ she told the website Rose Inc.

‘But there are so many things on my dream board that I need to tick off and want to do, and hopefully I’ll do some more movies as well,’ she said. ‘If I can do all of that, I’ll be very happy.’

‘Women forget all those things they don’t want to remember’: Shanina Shaik posted a cryptic quote to Instagram just hours before she announced her split from husband Greg ‘DJ Ruckus’ Andrews

Last Thursday, she wrote: ‘Now, women forget all those things they don’t want to remember, and remember everything they don’t want to forget… The dream is the truth.’  

The quote appears to be an extract from 1937 novel Their Eyes Were Watching God by writer Zora Neale Hurston. 

The tome is about a woman’s search for identity, which takes her through three marriages and a trip back to her origins.
