It has been quite a month for Jillian Michaels who finds herself a new mom of not one but two children. This is such exciting news for Jillian who has been trying to become a mother for a very long time and now her wish has been granted.
Super trainer Jillian Michaels opens up to People magazine this week about her instant new family. After a very long adoption process Michaels brought daughter Lukensia home from Haiti this month and that is only part of her joyous news. On May 3rd Jillian’s longtime partner Heidi Rhoades gave birth to the couple’s son Phoenix. In the magazine the fitness guru discusses the journey that led her to adopting their daughter and the twist of fate of their son being born at the same time Jillian brought Lukensia home. Plus fans can also get a look at the new beautiful family, which I have to say is very unusual for the normally very private Michaels. I mean she has always kept her personal life very shielded from the public eye.
About a year ago the former The Biggest Loser trainer revealed that she intended to adopt, now her dream of becoming a mom has come true two fold. I gotta say I love this random twist of fate that has happened to Rhodes and Michaels. They began the adoption process of little Lukensia two years ago and then Heidi wound up pregnant. Even more amazing is that the family came together all at the same time, with Phoenix birth and Lukensia’s adoption being finalized at the same time, pretty cool.
I want to give a very big congrats to my trainer and the woman who has kicked my butt into shape Jillian Michaels and her girlfriend Heidi Rhodes on the new additions to their family, a new daughter and a new son.
