But that just a small part of some of Sawyer's achievements. The long-time ABC anchor held the first U.S. TV interview with Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in 2012 because of her beliefs and brave fight for the girl child's right to an education.

She's got her hands full with kids who are like her own.

I've always thought that was a curious idea — that if you have more time, then you decide to have children. That's not the way it happens. I have stepchildren, and I have — what do the Quakers say? — a basket filled with children whom I adore.

When she answered the famous Times 10 Questions for Daine Sawyer interview she also opened up about the best points of her career and the weirdest thing she's ever done for a story which involves making her way into the Russian White House uninvited.

Losing the love of her life and moving on

Sawyer was happily married for almost 30 years to the iconic film and theater director Mike Nichols who is remembered for classics like The Graduate and Working Girl.

In 2014, he succumbed to a heart attack and the 73-year-old had a hard time coming to terms with losing him, but she is not done with love. She loved Nichols dearly but is open to moving on with the right man.
