Jack Wagner talked with People.com about his daughter who was put up for adoption 23 years ago. They have been recently united. Below is a take from the article….
“I get so emotional,” the actor, 52, tells PEOPLE as he choked back tears during break in Dancing rehearsals with pro partner Anna Trebunskaya. “She’s the new light in my life, as well as my sons, and I’m really grateful to her for having the courage to find me.”
Wagner had been told about the baby by her mother after the child was put up for adoption. He hired a lawyer but was advised his legal options were limited and he never knew for certain if the mother – with whom he only had a brief relationship – was telling the truth.
Now a dance instructor in Florida, the woman, named Kerry (she hasn’t released her surname), went on a search for her birth parents that led her to Wagner, who also has two sons, ages 17 and 21 with ex-wife Kristina.
Kerry will join him along with other family members on April 16 during his Celebrity Golf Classic benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (he lost his father to multiple myeloma and his brother has been fighting leukemia).
So cool and touching!! Be sure to read more here. You can see a video of Jack and Anna as well discussing it. I hope he sticks around until the April 16th show. I bet he will.
