Remembering his late parents and brother, Anderson expressed:
“When I announced Wyatt’s birth, I said that I like to imagine my mom and dad and brother, all of whom are no longer alive, with their arms around each other, smiling and joyful at his birth. Well, these past 22 months. I felt them watching over us very strongly and I already feel their love for Sebastian. The family I was born into may be gone but I feel them alive in the family that we’ve created in new love and new life.”
