The 48-year-old Braxton fell pregnant with her then-boyfriend, (now ex-husband) Keri Lewis’ child before they married in April 2001 and decided to terminate the baby as she was taking Accutane, a prescription acne treatment which can have serious side-effects for unborn babies.
And while Toni tells Entertainment Tonight ‘I am more ashamed of myself for doing that’, in a later interview, she admitted in her autobiography that she would have had the abortion anyway. But she was left devastated when Deizel was diagnosed with autism and believed she was being punished for terminating her pregnancy.
Since then she says she has let that go and “moved on” to loving her son, God and doing her best to be a great mother, daughter and sister.
