"There are people in your life who you’re just comfortable with. They can stand next to you and not say anything, but you feel better. In my life, there are only three people like that: my mother, my father, and Lucas.”

Since the wedding, Erika and her husband have proved that they are a match made in heaven. Plus, the married bliss of the two enriched when, Erika welcomed her first child, a son in 2012 and a baby girl named Grace Victoria in 2015.
