Tracy Morgan was joined by his wife, Megan, and daughter Maven during his latest visit to New York City. The comedian was spotted with his family outside of ABC studios.
Tracy wore denim that matched his wife and daughter’s outfit. Little Maven accessorized her dress with a black purse and neck jewelry that was simple yet elegant. Megan went for a patterned dress that came down to her ankles. The celebrity mom wore her hair slicked back in a ponytail.
Megan served as Tracy’s inspiration during his recovery from the 2014 accident that nearly killed him. The comedian told ‘The View’ co-hosts that his impending wedding was his motivation to learn how to walk and talk again. “I wanted to walk my wife down the aisle,” he shared. “I didn’t want no cane.”
Everything changed for Morgan in June 2014 when a Wal-Mart tractor-trailer slammed into the back of his limo bus in New Jersey. Morgan was unconscious at the scene of the accident and suffered brain damage that affects his life today.
“I met the first responder,” Tracy told ‘The View’ on Tuesday. “I don’t know his name off the top [of my head] because my memory’s bad now,” he added. “I met him at a show that I did in New Brunswick, and he was like in pieces. His mom whispered in my ear, ‘He’s the one that pulled you out the truck that night. You were covered in your blood from head to toe.’ I just hugged him and he cried, and I thanked him.”
Tracy Morgan received a $90 million settlement from Wal-Mart after filing a lawsuit against the company. The comedian has four kids in all.
