Frank Elstner focuses on growing the family

As Elstner reveals in an interview with “Bild”, his daughter gave birth to a little girl. The TV presenter also proudly reveals the name of the newest member of the family: Johanna. For Elstner, his role as a grandfather is now the focus. He puts his Parkinson’s disease, which was diagnosed in 2016, in the background. A mindset that is of great importance to him. “It’s important to have a positive attitude. When I get up in the morning, you can’t say, ‘I’m sick’. Instead, ‘I’m attacking!’ I go about my work as I used to. ”
