Lo scorso autunno, l’attrice ed ex scientologista Leah Remini ha annunciato che la sua unica figlia, Sofia Bella Pagan, si era recentemente iscritta al college. Sfortunatamente, questo traguardo è stato incredibilmente difficile per la star di « King of Queens ». « Portare il nostro unico figlio al college per la prima volta è stato il momento più dolorosamente doloroso e più orgoglioso della mia vita », ha scritto Remini su Instagram. « Non ho mai pianto così tanto in vita mia… È la cosa più difficile che abbia mai fatto, e mi sto ancora torturando con l’idea che avrei potuto spingere mia figlia sulla pista del college perché non sono mai riuscita ad andare quando avevo la sua età». Remini ha anche rivelato che lei e suo marito non volevano diventare nidificanti vuoti.
Remini echoed similar sentiments early in the year after Pagan attended her senior prom. "Last night was Sofia's senior prom," shared Remini on Instagram (via Today). "Senior year is filled with exciting milestones but it doesn't make it any less sad for parents when we wonder how time flew by so fast. Angelo and I couldn't be prouder of the young woman Sofia is becoming. But I need this process to slow down." Unfortunately, Pagan's recent life choices have completely stripped Remini of that possibility and it has her feeling sentimental.

So, good news first. Leah Remini actually did get to spend a bit more time with her daughter, Sofia Bella Pagan. As Remini revealed in a new Instagram post, Pagan didn't mesh well with her chosen school and decided to move back home, allowing she and her husband "to have her home for a few more months. However, Pagan has decided to give college another try. "A few weeks ago, she started courses at another University, and we moved her into an apartment," wrote Remini. "You'd think the second time would be easier, but Angelo and I are even more of a mess now."
The "Second Act" star also revealed that while Pagan adjusts to first-year student issues, she and her husband are "going through what parents like us go through. Crying, not knowing what to do with ourselves now other than looking at pictures and videos and crying some more." Fortunately, Remini has a good support system around her. In addition to her husband, she can also lean on her sister. After Pagan took her first swing at college, Remini's sister helped her to make decorate Pagan's dorm room. "My sister @nicole_b_remini flew in from Arizona to help me move my daughter into college," wrote Remini on Instagram. "I can't express how much it means to me that my sister did this for her niece and me."
