Childhood secret


Underwood reveals losing her premature baby twin sister, and struggling through childhood domestic violence.

A lot of people have domestic violence in their family, a lot of people witness things, so to get through that I started to engage my sister, my twin, as my guardian angel, as that was the only way I knew I could get through it. For years, in my family, my birth mother did not want me and my father to be close to each other so she would tell me that my father killed my sister. And that he propped a bottle up for her to take and she asasphyxiated… So for years, I loved my father but I did not get very close to him, until one day I saw my mother stab my father.
