Laurie Hernandez Gets Personal
On the latest episode of “Dancing With the Stars,” we got to see a super intimate side of Laurie Hernandez and her family. The interviews start with her parents talking about how they remember little Laurie as the “life of the house.” Her parents then talked about all the sacrifices they make sure Laurie had the opportunity to do what she loved. Just like most of our parents, they worked hard to make ends meet – they even worked at Laurie’s gym. But that’s not even the most emotional part of the interview.
Laurie then visits her grandmother in her assisted living home… and we lost it.
