Larissa and Colt have been shown planning a wedding and getting adjusted to their new life together in the United States -- but there has been no mention of the Brazilian beauty's children.

Larissa recently confirmed she is a mother of two kids whom she left in Brazil earlier this year when she moved to America, and now she's explaining in an Instagram statement why she does not have custody of either child.

"Hi everyone, I would like to address something about my kids," Larissa, 31, wrote on social media. 

"I really did not want to talk about them, because they are young and they can't make choices yet, I don't know if they wanted to be exposed or not. But, once I am really tired of all these rumors and in respect to my followers, I will make a brief about what happened in my past."

When Larissa was a nursing student in college, she said she left school against her father's wishes and moved in with her then-boyfriend in another state.

"We lived together for [two] years and had a son, the relationship did not [work] out, we had a very bad [break] up," wrote Larissa, who previously revealed to In Touch Weekly the man's name is Marcos Hack.

"Once the father was not paying child support and my family were not talking to me, I found myself, financially and emotionally unable to take care of my son. I spent all my savings and I tried everything to find a job, but in Brazil, as everyone knows, life can be very hard sometimes."

Larissa continued, "For this reason, I decided to let his aunt adopt him, she was always there for me and she loved him very much. This decision still breaks my heart today and it is a very delicate matter to me. It is a regret that I have to live with and I don't need anyone point the finger on my face."

"I already suffered enough. I really hope I can reconnect with him one day when he is old enough to understand that I made the best decision I could," the reality TV star said.

Larissa told In Touch earlier this month Marcos is a crossdresser and bisexual who allegedly cheated on her with "many other men."

"He broke my heart in many pieces back there, I got really depressed. I found myself unable to take care of our son and his sister adopted him... He is a loser," Larissa had said, adding that Marcos allegedly stole $20,000 from her and ruined her credit.

A few years after her failed romance with Marcos, Larissa said she entered a relationship with a different man and the former couple had welcomed a daughter together.

Larissa explained she attempted to take care of her daughter by working a minimum-wage job at a clothing store with no help from the little girl's father.  

By that time, Larissa had apparently repaired her relationship with her father, and so he took care of his grandchild when Larissa worked.

"I always [took] care of her and now she is with my father in Brazil temporarily. My father is a retired military man and he and his wife are great grandparents, they have a lot of time for her, I talk to them every day on WhatsApp and I plan to bring her to live with us very soon," Larissa shared on Instagram.

"I wanted to try my life here with Colt first, I want to move to a 'biggie house' and make sure the relationship will work out before I bring her. I also want to open my business to be able to support my daughter," she concluded.
