Christian Religion Anchor's Oscar Winning Brother: Chiwetel Ejiofor
Born on 27 August 1983 in Balham, England, to Nigerian parents of Igbo ancestry, she identifies herself as a devout Christian by religion. Their single mother raised her, and her siblings with great efforts after their father tragically passed away when she was just a child.
One of her siblings includes her older brother and famous actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor who won an Oscar nomination for his excellent performance in the Academy Award-winning movie 12 Years a Slave in 2014.
The following year, she was provided with the opportunity to report that her brother had been nominated for an Oscar, live on CNN.
She broke down in tears of joy on-air as she explained how much it meant to herself and her family, and apologized to her viewers for her display of emotion, saying:
"I'm sorry, I've never cried on TV before!"
She told how the nomination was particularly unbelievable for her mother who grew up in poverty and raised her children all by herself. However, she felt sad that their father wasn't there to witness the fantastic news.
