Her mother Tony later married her new husband Tonachio, whereas, her dad Franklin has remained tight-lipped about his relationship status so far.

    Who Won The Custody of Their Children?

    Following their divorce finalization, the court granted Franklin’s then-wife Gloria sole custody of their daughters. After her marriage to Tony, Gloria took her children with her, making it difficult for Franklin to be involved in his children’s life. As a result, the former parole officer wasn’t able to present in Megan’s life while growing up.
