Gianna had also shared an interview that she had where she spoke about her father. She said, “When I was a little baby, dad would do everything for me. Like change my diaper and feed me all of the time and put me to bed. When it was time for my birthday to happen, when I was a baby and it was time for my birthday, he would take me to Chuck E. Cheese and he would let me play all the games… He was strong and good and good to me. And he was fun. And he’s always going to be fun.”
