In 2013, Vanity Fair reported that Thaddeus was working as a mechanic and studying to become a police officer. He told the magazine at the time about being adopted by Mia at 12 years old, "It was scary to be brought to a world of people whose language I did not understand, with different skin colors,” he said. “The fact that everyone loved me was a new experience, overwhelming at first.”

Thaddeus was one of Mia’s 14 children.
