Kristina explained that she was her parents’ first child, and while her mother was pregnant, they came to an agreement about who would get to name her.
If she was a boy, her mother would name her after her grandfather. If she was a girl, her dad would choose her name.
‘Well, skip forward to the day that I was born, my mom wound up having to have a C-section because my big a** head wouldn’t fit through the birth canal,’ she shared.
‘She was super drugged up after that, and my dad filled out all of my paperwork. And, at last, he chose to name me Kristina.’

Candid: Kristina revealed in the comments that her father abandoned her and her siblings when she was three
Kristina said her mom ‘really didn’t hate the name, so she just kind of went with it’ when she came to in the hospital.
‘Everything was fine for a few months — until my mom found out that my dad was cheating on her,’ she added.

Thousands of people took to the comments, with one person asking if she has a ‘good relationship’ with her dad now.
