FINDING THE LIGHT

During delivery, Foxworth expressed that it was the most special moment in her life. She said she was ecstatic at the prospect of becoming a mother.
When she confirmed to the public that she was with child, she exclaimed that this was the happiest she had ever been. The newborn Michael was born ten days after his due date, weighing 6 lbs and 11 oz.
