"My daughter was diagnosed with a problem with her head. It was a very dark period. But I got through it. Don’t they say what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger?"
Fortunately, Marina has recovered, but LeBlanc said he often worries whenever she gets ill.
"Spending time with her is the best thing I’ve ever done. We have a great bond and it’s the best thing in my life."
"I remember when my daughter, Marina, was born. The second I laid eyes on her, I was in love, and I had never felt that way before. I couldn’t believe it. I knew from that moment there was nothing that would ever stop me from loving her - even if she crashed my Ferrari."
