For about two years, Cesar Millan had given up on life, but he’s picking up where he left off. With a new show coming up in January, Cesar is feeling so much better now than the time he attempted suicide in 2010. Back then, he was dealing with the end of his 16-year marriage and the death of his pet pit bull, Daddy.
He reveals all this on an upcoming documentary special for Nat Geo Wild. The star of Dog Whisperer said that the ordeal he went through was hard especially since he was not expecting any of it, especially his divorce. He went into depression and lost some weight. To him, the divorce meant losing the most important thing for him, his family.
Millan also survived an overdose in the same year, but he was able to turn that around by regaining control over his life. He says exercise and work had helped him put his life back in order. The host also found a new love, Jahira Dar, whom he plans to propose marriage to after asking her parents.
All these and more on his life are featured on this new Nat Geo Wild Special, which will air on Nov. 25. He hopes this could inspire people and motivate them. According to Milan, “It doesn’t matter where you come from. Really what I would like for people to get out of this is just to not lose hope, no matter what happens”.
