Michaels receives an adoption referral for a girl in Haiti. After completing her dossier for the Democratic Republic of Congo, Michaels was worried that the Congo would not work out and started a second adoption in Haiti.
So now, it’s just a matter of trying to get her home and anything can happen and fall through or fall apart, so it’s kind of premature for me to say it, but that’s where it’s at. So if it falls apart, you’ll know why I’m like, devastated and not coming out of my house for months.
Michaels announces VIA Facebook and People Magazine that she is officially a mother. Michaels brought home Lukensia, her 2-year-old adopted daughter from Haiti, the same week that her partner Heidi Rhoades, gave birth to their son, Phoenix. This is also the first time the trainer has spoken publicly about her relationship with Rhoades.
Curves International, Inc. collaborates with Michaels to launch Curves Workouts with Jillian Michaels. The total-body workouts will feature the Curves Circuit strength training machines in conjunction with functional bodyweight-based exercises. The workouts will be offered at participating Curves clubs starting January 2014. The program will be “refreshed” on a regular basis with 12 new functional moves introduced each month throughout 2014.
I am so thrilled to be partnered with Curves to provide women with the tools necessary to take control of their health. Curves is everywhere – so now my program is accessible, effective and affordable.
