What Motivated CNN's Sunny Hostin to Become a Lawyer? Family of Four: Her Husband, Married Life and 2 Children

You may be aware of the achievements of former assistant United States Attorney and legal expert, Sunny Hostin. But do you know what encouraged her to precede career as a Prosecutor?

At the age of six, Sunny’s fragile eyes witnessed her uncle being stabbed. Similarly, a year later she saw the murder of her friend’s father in front of the candy store in the Bronx. You may think now that the incident must have made a negative effect on the child’s mind. But luckily, nothing bad happened to her psychology. In fact, Sunny claims that this threatening experience didn’t break her but encouraged her to become a prosecutor. She shared in an interview,

"Those incidents shaped who I am,"

"Those experiences made me strong - there's nothing I can't handle. They also informed my career direction. I think I became a prosecutor in large part because of those experiences."

Despite the racial environment, Sunny endured and struggled hard and achieved this success. She spent her childhood in poverty and now has become one of the most trusted legal analysts. She rigorously speaks against the issues of racial violence and also makes an analysis of many criminal cases.

Her Married Life, Husband, and Children:

Along with being a reputed legal analyst, she is also a lovely wife and mother.  She married Dr. Emmanuel Hostin, MD, an Orthopedic Surgeon in August 1998. Even after many years of marriage Sunny shares a healthy relationship with Emmanuel. She credits the happiness of life to her lovely husband. She expressed the contentment of her marital relation with She said,

“I couldn’t have found a more loving and brilliant person in my life. If I hadn’t gone on that double date, I would have never known him. I am extremely lucky to have a husband like him. He is a darling and has given me two beautiful angels. He is always there to support me in my good and bad days. Without him, I would have been nothing”

A bit about her Husband:

Many know about Sunny or at least aware of her reputation and status but what about her husband, Emmanuel? Here's what we know of him.

According to Hostin, her husband is a sports doctor as well as an orthopedic surgeon. He graduated from John Hopkins University School of Medicine and earned his medical license from the New York state in 2002. His current office is in Long Island, New York.

He was also heavily involved in the 2010 Haitian Earthquake and saved innumerable lives. Hostin proudly talked about her husband and how he helped people, getting barely anything in return and was reported saying,

“He did whatever he could and most people could not pay him. These needlepoints are often some of the most expensive things people owned. For them to give these to my husband was incredibly meaningful. They are priceless.”

Besides their respective careers, the couple also co-own Alivn & Friends, New Rochelle.

We can definitely agree that Emmanuel is an awesome husband and Sunny should, by all means, be proud of him.
