The tension between the family continued when Carli’s father disapproved of her attending Ashley’s wedding in 2012, causing Carli to miss out on important family events.

Fortunately, her parents and brother visited the professional player in 2020 after she rekindled her bond with her sister.

Ashley kind of helped break the ice a little bit as Carli finally worked out her relationship with the rest of her family.
