He reportedly believes that raising a child together will bring him even closer with his present wife. He has already raised two children with his former wife, Lori Kahn.
Burgi’s wife is reportedly incapable of giving birth to her own biological children. This has made the couple, who want to raise a child together, consider the option of adoption.
