Celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels posted a photo with fiancée Heidi Rhoades and their two kids — daughter Lukensia, 7, and 5-year-old son Phoenix — via Instagram Monday.
“Today is National Children’s Health Day and @GigglesnHugs wants to make sure our kids stay active in a fun & safe environment. Play on! #gigglesnhugs#familyfun #GIGL #brandambassador,” she wrote.
The fitness guru opened up about advice she recently gave to her daughter, whom was adopted from Haiti.
“I was like, ‘Let’s look back on your life.’ She’s Haitian, so I said, ‘You lived through one of the most intense natural disasters on the planet. And on top of that, you had to wait two years for Mommy and I to find you. You are the strongest kid. You’ve been through all this, and you think you can’t handle your first day of school in Malibu?’" she said.
She added: “I also told her, ‘I get it—you’re scared. It’s gonna be uncomfortable, honey, but I promise you: There will be good in with the bad, and that’s what you’re gonna focus on. There’s probably gonna be one kid you don’t like or who won’t like you, but a lot of people are awesome, and I bet you’ll make a bunch of friends.’ She went to school and came home happy, happy, happy, and it was awesome."
