Mina’s relationship with her siblings can be seen by the fact that she took care of her niece for nine months. This happened back in 2017 when Mina’s sister was going through troubled times in her life.
In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Mina explained how caring for her niece was life-changing. She said, “I think everyone likes me better now that I had Julie, my ‘Juju Bean. I can be somewhat cold, but when you have a kid, you just can’t be.”
Aside from her biological siblings, she has a couple of half-siblings as well, two from her father’s side and one from her mother’s side. Her father welcomed one son Tad Starsiak and a daughter named Jess with his second marriage to Cheryl.

Mina Starsiak and Steve Hawk: How did it all begin?
It was back in 2013 when the pair first met. They met through Facebook. In an interview with Country Living, the couple revealed that they had connected through mutual friends on the social media platform. At first, it was Mina who saw Steve on one of her friends’ Facebook accounts. Upon seeing Steve, she thought he was ‘stunningly handsome.’
After their little virtual meeting, they first met in real life at a baseball game. However, the date wasn’t like what Mina had expected. During the entire game, he didn’t pay enough attention to her. On top of that, his friends even hit on her.
Thankfully, she gave him another chance, and fortunately, this time around Steve didn’t blow it out. Eventually, the pair started dating officially and got engaged in March 2015.
How many children does the pair share? Mina’s journey towards Parenthood
The couple is a proud parent of two beautiful children, one girl, and one boy. They welcomed their first child Jack Richard Hawk on August 9th, 2018. At the time of her first child’s birth, Mina explained how quickly she became pregnant and told PEOPLE, “I got pregnant almost immediately after getting off birth control.”
Unfortunately, the next one wasn’t so easy for Mina. Just a couple of months after the birth of their first child, they started trying for another baby. Sadly, she failed to do so. After trying again and again, the couple finally decided to go to the doctor.
The report brings forth bad news for the Hawks. According to the report, her ng/mL level was 0.25, which is quite lower than the normal range of 1.5 to 4. The news was a devastating blow for the pair, especially for Mina. She desperately wanted to have a baby and all hope was lost. Moreover, the doctor even told her that the chances of her being pregnant were only 1 percent.
In desperation, the couple went through fertility treatments. Despite all the challenges, the pair remained positive. By sheer luck, the couple decided to take a second option, and it all worked out. She became pregnant with her second child, a daughter named Charlotte Drew Hawk in September 2020.
