“I didn’t reach out to them, they didn’t reach out to me,” Collin said ET. “I want to respect their space and time and respect how they think about everything, so I’m just waiting for the day they come forward. I don’t want to report. I don’t want to invade her space. I’d rather just let them do it on their own terms.” He added that he “loves my siblings” and “would be willing to put my parents aside, and I have. In my eyes it’s me and my siblings. I love her to death.”
“I’m very fond of them. The way I see it, the parents aren’t involved, it’s just me and them. I really hope that one day, when I have kids, my kids will know their aunt and uncle,” he said colling ET. “I’d just love to see them all… I hope they’re okay. I hope they live the life they want and are happy.”
