Within two years, Heinz Hoenig becomes a father twice more. And that despite the fact that he was already around 70 at the time of the birth. Some seem so bothered by this that they shower the actor with hate mail "below the belt".
Heinz Hoenig and his wife Annika Kärsten-Hoenig became parents of their son Jianni on October 13th. In the RTL interview, the couple now reports that the actor has received many hate messages since birth. "Many comments were below the belt," explains Hoenig's wife. "That my husband will soon bless the time that he will no longer see school enrollment." The 71-year-old actor was "strongly attacked," said the 37-year-old.
She can ignore insults against herself, "but when it comes to my family being insulted, i.e. my husband and my children, then the fun stops for me," explains Annika Kärsten-Hoenig. Then she becomes a "lioness" who defends herself.
Husband Heinz Hoenig believes that behind the critical messages were "mainly envious people" who ganged up to form "really small clubs" to spread hatred. The couple does not want to lose their positive energy through the negative comments. Nobody has to "live their life" and the children should "grow up in love". Fortunately, there are also many people who only wish the small family well.
After son Juliano (2), Jianni is the second child of the two. Hoenig has another son and a daughter from a previous marriage. Kärsten-Hoenig also brought a daughter into the relationship.
In an interview with the magazine "Bunte" in August, she made it clear that wife Annika, to whom Hoenig has been married since 2019, has no doubts about her husband's age or ability. "Heinz is younger in mind than many others. He will no longer run a marathon, but he doesn't have to," she said.
Nevertheless, they agree that after the birth of their second son they have "fulfilled their target", the two now explain. "We want to save our strength and energy for our two boys, after that family planning is over for us, I find everything else irresponsible," said Kärsten-Hoenig.
