Kristin Evans on telling her family about the alleged abuse she had been experiencing:

“Yeah, I was really embarrassed actually to tell my family. I didn’t want them to know what I’d been going through. I felt like you know, my mom went through something similar when I was younger, and I kind of felt like I failed her a little bit. That I was repeating the same pattern and felt like I failed my children as well.”

Evans shares her internal thoughts while the alleged attack happened:

“I was just trying to stay conscious because we’ve had other, you know, incidents where I was afraid that he would take the baby and I was afraid that he would do the same thing this time as well. That’s why you can hear me in the video saying ‘Zac! Zac! The baby.’ That’s because he was right there and I didn’t want anything to happen to him.”

Evans shares her initial reaction to Zac Stacy’s arrest:

“It was mixed emotions all around. You know, it’s heartbreaking and devastating and I wish he had never done this in the first place. But at the same time, you know, I was relieved a little bit that I was seeing some kind of justice served. And then disappointment again following.”

Evans on how she plans to explain the situation to her children:

“Well, my daughter is 13, so she’s very aware of everything that’s going on. We have open discussions about everything regularly. For my son, I’m not sure. I think I’m just going to be honest with him, guide him, direct him and if he feels he needs to speak about his emotions, allow him to do that freely.”
