Why Kirstie Alley and Stevenson adopted 2 children
Alley and Stevenson expanded their family when they adopted 2 children- True Stevenson and Lillie Price Stevenson.
According to People.com, the actress discussed her fertility struggles, sharing that she had suffered a miscarriage in 1990 when she was three months pregnant.
In her 2005 book, she opened up about how she struggled physically and emotionally after her pregnancy loss.
“When the baby was gone, I just didn’t really get over it. Neither did my body. I so throughly convinced my body that it was still pregnant after nine months that I had milk coming from my breasts. I was still fat, I was still grieving, and I had just been told it was very possible I would never be able to have children,” she wrote.
Parker and Alley separated in late 1996 then filed for divorce a few months later.
