However, a video blog she posted on June 13, 2018, would veer from the vegan-centric. In it, she shared with subscribers the story of her childhood. “I got a really beautiful upbringing. I very much grew up with a mom and a dad,” Cehn said.
But Cehn shared that her story could have been much different. “I was adopted as a baby,” she revealed. “My birth mother had me when she was just 23 years old. She… didn’t feel that she could take care of me well, and so she decided she wanted to give another family that couldn’t have kids the opportunity to have a child.”
When Cehn was born in 1986, her adoptive parents flew from Oakland, California, to New York, where she was born. They then traveled across the country to bring their new baby home. “I got the most wonderful parents ever,” Cehn wrote on her website, “I thank my lucky stars for that every day.”
