Abby’s parents missed her first press conference since arriving back home, but this time it wasn’t because of neglect!
Abby Sunderland‘s dad, Laurence, has been under fire for letting his 16-year-old daughter attempt to sail around the globe by herself — but today, June 29, the world’s most unpopular father missed his girl’s press conference at their home in Thousand Oaks, Calif. for a legitimate reason…his wife, Marianne, went into labor with their eighth child.
Before Abby, 16, began speaking at the conference, it was announced that her mom had gone into labor with their baby, a son they are naming Paul, after the captain of the ship who saved Abby when her sailboat capsized in the Indian Ocean. Abby has a 17-year-old brother named Zac and now six younger siblings.
Congrats, Sunderlands — pretty soon you won’t need to sail around the world for a reality show…you can just have one about your gigantic family!
