Months after her dad’s death, “Dancing with the Stars” alum Cheryl Burke has found “a lot of light.”
In an emotional post on Instagram, Burke revealed that she has a secret sister she never knew existed until recently. She wrote, “With my father’s passing came a lot of darkness but there was also a lot of light — I found my sister who I had never known. We recently met for the first time and it was such a surreal experience to walk into a room to meet and walk out feeling like we had known each other forever. In her I see the same drive and passion that our dad had and there’s clearly a major family resemblance.”
“It may have taken 30 years to find each other, but I am so excited to have another sister for life,” Cheryl added.
At the time of her father’s death, Burke tweeted about the importance of loved ones, saying, “I’m dealing with some personal things right now and need to take a break from social media. Thanks for understanding and remember to tell the people who are important to you just how much you love them each and everyday. Xoxo Cheryl.”
