The Olympic Skiing champion, Bode Miller came to terms with his ex-wife over their 14 month old son, Samuel Bode Miller McKenna’s custody.
Bode Miller has finally reached an agreement with his former wife regarding his right to see or at least talk with his 14 month old son. The facility known as Skype may be used for the purpose of father-son bonding.
But Sara McKenna (his ex-wife) has trashed the idea of Skype chat saying that it is impractical since the infant hardly has much of an attention span. She wanted to get affectionate with the little toddler instead of just having some face time with him.
“He’s interested for 45 seconds, then he’s off,” McKenna said of their young son, Samuel Bode Miller McKenna, outside Manhattan court Monday. “It’s an inadequate substitute for being there — you can’t hug him or touch him,” McKenna told NYP.
However, Miller had made a plea that Skype figure in the custody deal. Miller’s son will mainly remain with McKenna till September when the next stage for their case is due. The pact between the two meanwhile is seven pages long.
Miller had gotten to know McKenna via a costly relationships agency. After she had conceived their baby, he met someone else (his current wife).
Bode Miller’s lawyer tried his best to make a legal grab for his son. But it was no go. The law intervened and gave more of a privileged position to the mother.
During this interim period till September, Miller and his ex-wife will be facing a test of their love for the little child. The parent the youngster is more attached to will automatically gain the upper hand.
Miller’s present wife is a pro sports star. Meanwhile, McKenna was a Marine and a firefighter. It seems Miller is attracted to athletic women with strong physiques and even stronger personalities.
After the much publicized custody case had dragged on for ages, it has finally reached resolution. Miller had not gotten much sleep as he appeared bleary-eyed in court recently. And he mentioned this fact to the judge.
The judge on the other hand wanted what was best for the child and said that it was a good thing that both parents had at last amicably decided to bury the hatchet.
