Carola has previously spoken about the joy surrounding the adoption in an interview with The evening paper.
– It was so big, it’s so big. We are now. We may not have the same skin color but we have the same blood color. I usually tell Zoe that I am not her biological mother but that she was born from my hearthave
Two years after Carola had adopted her daughter Zoe, Carola and Jimmy Källqvist, 52, became a couple. Jimmy immediately became a big part of Carola and her daughter’s everyday life and he assumed the role of Zoe’s father. In 2019, however, the couple chose to go their separate ways.
“We’re having fun Jimmy & I together with Zoe who thinks it’s so precious to see the two of us together”Carola wrote then.
