The TV trainer opens up about his son’s birth, life as a new dad, and his troubled past!
ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition‘s star trainer, Chris Powell and his wife, Heidi, welcomed their son, William Cash, on June 13. “I cried,” Chris told Life & Style about the day William was born. “I thought, that’s my boy, that’s my son. It’s my flesh and blood and such a magical moment.” And now we can finally see just how adorable little William is!
Life hasn’t always been this great for Chris, though. He told Life & Style he ended up thousands of dollars in debt after investing money in an unstable nutrition system. “Three years ago, I was living out of my car and didn’t believe in love,” he says. “When I look back at those times, I thank God every day, because without going through that, I wouldn’t know how sweet all this is.”
Baby William brings the Chris’ family to five! Chris is a stepdad to Heidi’s two children from a previous marriage, Matix, 6, and Marley, 4. William is the couple’s first child together. “These are the most important people in the world to me,” Chris says. “It’s beautiful — life can’t get any better.”
