“ALL MY CHILDREN ARE AFTER MY HEART. WHATEVER THEY DO I AM STILL THEIR FATHER, AND I AM VERY CLOSE TO ALL OF THEM. I DON’T HAVE A FAVORITE ONE. AND I DIDN’T RAISE THEM LIKE THAT. WHATEVER YOU FIND IN MY HOUSE IS ACCESSIBLE TO ALL OF THEM.

I GAVE THEM THE NECESSARY EDUCATION THEY REQUIRE TO STAND ON THEIR OWN. I BOUGHT A CAR FOR EACH ONE OF THEM WHEN THEY GRADUATED FROM THE UNIVERSITY.”
