In a 2020 interview, Aimee delved into her deliberate choice to maintain a low profile, even amidst her family’s widespread fame. She emphasized that her decision was motivated by a desire to safeguard her personal life from undue intrusion. “I had grown up around a pretty well-known dad and I still always valued my privacy within that family,” she explained. “Everywhere you went people wanted to know everything, and that when you’re growing up that can be kind of intimidating. Nobody at fifteen wants anybody to see how goofy their parents are.”

She also emphasized that divulging details about every aspect of her life was deeply troubling for her and made her feel vulnerable. “It was like a typical concern combined with kind of an inner knowing that this is absolutely not for me,” Aimee confessed.
