Whitney Port’s husband Tim Rosenman has revealed how he met the long-lost brother who was put up for adoption when his mother was just 19 years old.
Speaking on his wife’s podcast with WhitTim recalled getting a call from his mother who told him she had reconnected with the son she gave up for adoption when she was still in college.
Not long after, Tim would finally meet his brother Carey, a 50-year-old man from the South whose daughter happened to live on the same street as in Los Angeles.
‘He looks just like my mother’: Whitney Port’s husband Tim Rosenman has revealed how he met long-lost brother who was put up for adoption when his mother was just 19 years old
It all started eight years ago, when Tim got a call from his mother confessing to him about her long-lost son.
Tim’s mother was only 19 when she became pregnant. Her boyfriend broke up with her and her mother rented an apartment where she could stay until she gave birth.
After welcoming her son Carey and putting it up for adoption, his mother returned to school and eventually started a life with Tim’s father.
At the time, Tim’s mother was already in contact with Carey’s wife online, but had not yet met him.

However, it is Tim who first meets Carey.
Several months after the revealing conversation, Tim gets another call from his mother asking if he was able to meet Carey that day.
As it turned out, Carey was in town to visit his grown daughter who lived on the same street as Tim in Venice Beach.
“Full disclosure, I just smoked a big fat one and was high on my a**,” he told Whitney.

While Tim wasn’t necessarily in the best shape to meet his brother, he did anyway.
“This isn’t something you can say no to… You have to say yes,” he said.
“So 10 minutes later there’s a knock on our door and it’s Carey, my brother, his wife Pam, their daughter Christie, her then boyfriend, now husband, Pete. And that was it, right?’
“Their son Zach wasn’t there, but there they are at my door and I opened the door and Carey is there and he looks just like my mom and he looks just like my brother and he, he looks like, looks like my family. ‘

“And all I knew was that he was from the South and I think he was a general contractor and I had no preconceived notions of what that would mean. And I just hope, you know, we lived up to his expectations and that I didn’t ruin it for my mom or whatever, make a bad impression. And I knew Whitney would knock him out of the park.”
Tim said he felt connected to his brother the moment he looked into his eyes.
“As soon as I looked into his eyes, I felt connected to him and his family, and luckily they were wonderful people. And they came in on that Easter morning and we hung out and we, we kind of chatted for an hour and talked about my mother and my life and Whitney’s life and their life.’

A few weeks later, Tim’s mother finally meets her son, and from then on, he is fully embraced as family.
“We clicked and my dad was there and then we kind of went, ‘Hey, we’re each other’s family and that’s how we’re going to behave.’
“And we call each other brother and all, my mom celebrated her 75th birthday a few years ago and we all went to Montana together and they get together whenever they can. And we text each other on holidays, just like everyone else. And so last weekend we were all, er, at their lake house in Georgia.”
Speaking about their journey south on her Instagram account, Whitney gushed about Carey and his family on her Instagram Stories.
“Timmy has a wonderful brother, Carey, whom we only met and discovered eight years ago. He is one of the main reasons why we planned a vacation to the south. We miss him and his family terribly!’
