“It was being on my own helped me grow, first of all out of the public eye and without everyone else around me. I think that is probably the best thing you guys did for me because I became very strong and independent,” she told the show host.
She echoed her mother’s sentiments with the insistence that she never wanted anyone to take credit for what she had done, except for herself and God.
Vanessa was very clear about her understanding of faith.
However, she has never been keen about following her parent’s path despite societal pressure.
“I AM A PASTOR’S KID, NOT A PASTOR. I HAVE NOT CHOSEN THIS LIFE. I APPRECIATE ALL THE THINGS THAT MY PARENTS DO MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE AND I THANK GOD THAT I WAS RAISED IN A CERTAIN MANNER, BUT WE ARE ALL SET TO MAKE OUR OWN MISTAKES AND CHOICES. I HAVE CHOSEN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PATH,” SHE STATED.
In conclusion, Vanessa is married to her long-time friend Robert Kovac who she met in Australia.
They are blessed with one child.
Here are some of their family photos.
