Eric's husband, Les Maison said:
“I fell in love with the person. She was beautiful as a woman, but equally beautiful on the inside,” “As long as Eric is happy with the appearance, Eric will be happy with what’s in her brain – or his brain.”
Eric who was a mother of five, now a Dad of five said he regrets not coming to terms with his gender identity earlier.
