Kristin Chenoweth was adopted at birth and later in life she found her birth mother. Now, in a new interview for Katie Couric‘s YouTube channel, she’s telling the story about meeting her birth mom for the first time.
“No one knows this, but when I walked in the door, she said, ‘You’re that girl?!’” Kristin said.
“She had seen me on The Tonight Show ten years prior. Her uncle had said, ‘Lynn, there’s a girl on there that acts just like you,’” Kristin revealed. “She’s incredible. An incredible person. And when I met her she said, ‘Can you ever forgive me?’ And I said, ‘Forgive you? You gave me life. And my parents Junie and Jerry gave me a life. The chance at a life.’ And I’m so grateful for her.”
Kristin stars in the new Hallmark Channel movie A Christmas Love Story, which premieres tonight.
