When @nasa astronaut Anne McClain had her official spacesuit photo shoot leading up to her trip to the International Space Station in November, she decided to do something unusual: McClain brought along her 4-year-old son for the session. McClain wrote that she shared the photos to support other mothers who struggle to find a work-life balance. “The hardest part about training for space is the 4 yr old I have to leave behind every time I walk out the door…I try to remember he will grow up and know what it looks like, behind the scenes, to pursue a dream. He is my ‘why.'” McClain is a decorated US Army Major, attack helicopter pilot, and aerospace engineer. 🌏✨ #womeninnasa #womeninscience #womenempowerment

Anne Mcclain has openly talked about her sexuality. Apparently, Beautiful and kind-hearted women fascinate her.
Similarly, there are no past records of her marriage to a guy. Therefore, we assume she doesn’t have a husband.

However, things didn’t work out so well. In 2018, McClain accused Summer of assault. Summer responded it to be an effort to gain custody of her son.
As a result, the couple parted ways. McClain filed for the custody of her son and the case is still moving on.
Recently, in August 2019, Summer has filed a case against McClain for identity theft.
She has accused her of accessing Summer’s bank account illegally from NASA’s computer. At the time, she was in the space station of NASA.
There’s unequivocally no truth to these claims. We’ve been going through a painful, personal separation that’s now unfortunately in the media. I appreciate the outpouring of support and will reserve comment until after the investigation. I have total confidence in the IG process.
