At home with Kristi Yamaguchi and family
Dancing With the Stars contestant Kristi Yamaguchi posed with her family in the latest issue of People. The 36-year-old Olympic champion figure skater shares her Raleigh, NC home with NHL player husband Bret Hedican, 37, and daughters Keara Kiyomi, 4 ½, and Emma Yoshiko, 2. Also photographed with partner Mark Ballas, 21, Kristi said,
I got burnt out on skating. I was ready to focus on being a mom. [The girls] love being on the ice, but I wouldn’t say they’re open to instruction at this point. I don’t know how my mom got up at 4 every morning to take me to the rink, but now I can see why she did it. You do anything to make your kids happy. My life has slowed down. I’m comfortable just being Mom.
