Gene will have to wait until he is older to receive an official diagnosis.

"He's two and a half and I think they don't diagnose children until maybe six at the earliest I think. You can see some signs but the diagnosis doesn't come until later and I can say honestly I don't have a preference either way," she continued, concluding: "You just want your kids to be healthy and happy."
