"Anorexia is probably responsible for my infertility. I have been pregnant many times. I lost my last child at 4 and a half months of pregnancy."
When asked about the adoption, her late husband answered,
"It’s a long story. My wife wanted to have some children and she could not have any. So she tried desperately for maybe 10 years and then couldn’t get any. So we decided to adopt. We have two marvelous little girls from Vietnam and we’re very happy with them. It’s great – they are so tender, they need so much love and we have much love to give. I don’t see any difference between my real children and my adopted children."
The gorgeous diva also confessed to having suffered many miscarriages.
"At the least test, I do not eat, I drink more. I can lose 5 pounds in a week. Anorexia is probably responsible for my infertility. I have been pregnant many times. I lost my last child at 4 and a half months of pregnancy. It was when we were going to welcome Jade. Nobody knew anything about it."
Laeticia has fortunately recovered from the diseases and is taking care of their two children.
