In her first interview since being fired from Megyn Kelly Today, controversial host Megyn Kelly has opened up about why family Christmas traditions are so important to her.
In the interview with DailyMailTV, Kelly talked about losing her father when she was fifteen-years-old.
“My dad died 10 days before Christmas 1985,” Megyn revealed. “It was a sudden heart attack and it changed my family forever. My last sight of him was sitting on the couch looking at the Christmas tree.”
“What I wouldn’t give now to have that moment back,” Megyn reflected. “To have one more chance to tell him I love him.”
