Luca’s Birth and Childhood

As a result, Luca lived with his mom and maternal grandmother for much of the time until he was three years old. Jodi would eventually remarry and move to Vancouver Island to raise her son with her new husband.
While living in Vancouver, Jodi and her new husband adopted a beautiful little girl named Maddison. After Jodi married her husband, she decided to move back to Alberta with her two children.
