Fitness trainer Jillian Michaels and Lukensia were seen going to a nail salon in Malibu, Calif. on Saturday (August 24). The 3-year-old wore a purple bow in her hair, jean shorts and striped top for the day out. On August 20 she went to the park with mom and got a piggy back ride.
Jillian- who also raises Phoenix, 1, with her partner Heidi Roades – recently tweeted: “Had to travel 4 work today last minute. I HATE leaving my kids. Does that ever get easier?”
In her interview with Ladies’ Home Journal Michaels said adopting Lukensia was fate.
“I’ve been to Haiti on and off since I was 27. I met her a year ago on a trip visiting orphanages for All Blessings International, an organization I work with. I was visiting this one orphanage and the next thing I knew she jumped into my arms. She just grabbed me and clung to me and I immediately felt something. I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is my daughter.’ “
However the baby girl had already been placed with a family in Germany – but it didn’t work out.
“I do think there’s a certain amount of fate involved,” she explained. “Life has a way of working out the way it’s meant to.”
