"He said he had to go upstairs at like 2 a.m. and grab the boys and take them down to, we have like a little safe room in our house ... I bet everyone was crying at 2 a.m., like freaking out," she said.
She added that right now everyone is mostly "assessing" the situation and texting friends an family members to check that they are safe.
More celebrities are reacting, as well.

Dolly Parton also sent her love in a video message posted to Twitter.
"Praying for all those affected by the devastating storms in Tennessee and my heart is especially with the families who lost loved ones," she captioned the clip. "We are all with you."
In the clip, Parton said: "Well I'm here on the job today, because as they say, the show must go on, but we had a lot of damage out in our area. I know a lot of Nashville was just devastated with the storms, and I just wanted all of you to know that we are all with you, and hope that your family's OK, and your property's going to be able to get mended pretty soon, get your lights back on. But just wanted you to know you're being thought of, and we love you, and sorry that it all happened to all of us..."
