Emily Fernandez’s Early Life
Emily Fernandez came into this world on 30 June 1992 with the special condition of dwarfism. She was born in Pennsylvania, United States and while she was just a baby, her biological parents gave her up for adoption. As it is said that the real pain of a person in certain situations can be understood only by the people who have gone through that exact or at least similar situation, Emily was adopted by a dwarf couple. Her adoptive sister, Sara shares the family’s condition. Emily was welcomed warmly in her new family, but unfortunately, her adoptive mother died when she was just sixteen.
Emily Fernandez has a daughter named Eva, details of whose father is not known. Unlike her mother, Eva is not a dwarf. After the birth of Eva, Emily fell in love with a person who, at that time, was known less by his TV career and more by his criminal records. His name is Lontel Jahnar Johnson, and he has been convicted in many criminal cases, like that of theft and physical assault. After being in a relationship for 3 years, Emily and Lontel gave birth to a boy in April 2016. His name was Lontel JJ Johnson Jr., and much like his mother, he too was born with dwarfism.
Due to serious health problems, JJ passed away when he was just 3 months old, an incident that left the couple scarred and heart-broken leading Lontel to decide that he didn’t want to have any more children. However, due to Emily’s request, he agreed to go for IVF for the birth of their next child. Emily went through two surgeries, but unfortunately both of the surgeries failed. At present, Emily seems happy with her only daughter Eva.
