Robin said he was devastated by the loss of his home and the neighborhood

"You see movies, and you’d think there would be one doll left over, or a book of course, something. But it’s just rubble," he told Entertainment Tonight. "There's nothing left."

It wasn't just the home that he mourned either, it was the neighborhood too.

The couple have three children together now 

"It’s a great community, it's a community of wonderful people, a lot of parents whose kids go to the same school as my kid. It's just devastating."

At the time, Robin vowed to rebuild his family home, but it's not clear if he and April have done so yet.
