His older daughter Elliot who is 14 years old suffers from the medical condition called scoliosis which affects the curve of the back. The pair posted a brave photo of their daughter wearing braces on the Twitter. They decided on sharing the condition to the public in order to raise awareness among the people.
After the post, their fans were praising and encouraging parents and Elliot for warning people about the condition.
While his personal life is in complete bliss, his professional life did face some turbulence.He was on the top of his game during the presidentship of Obama and even made $15 million to $18 million a year.
But he became a source of embarrassment during the presidential campaign to ABC as he was caught handing money to Clinton Foundation. There was a huge issue raised in the matter and was even mocked by the president Donald Trump as Little George.
He further added:
“All the networks, I mean CNN is really bad but ABC this morning- I don’t watch it much but I’m watching in the morning and they have little George Stephanopoulos talking to Nikki Haley,”
The president of 1 million dollar States even made fun of his height. But he managed to brush the dust off and get back on to his average and reputed pace in the field of journalism.He recently got an opportunity to interview ex FBI chief Comey which managed to put him in the limelight.
