host Julie Chen learned more than she ever expected
when she began to delve into her family's genealogy on the TLC docu-series Who Do You Think You Are?
Reading about her grandfather's funeral, and the family he left behind, Chen gets choked up thinking about the man she never got the opportunity to know.
"It's so strange because I never met him…" Chen said, fighting by tears. "But it's sad."
Learning of her grandfather's death -- which occurred long before she was ever born -- but not nearly enough about his life, the talk show host decides to set off to Singapore in an attempt to really get to know her late grandfather.
What she discovers changes her perspective of her grandfather forever.
Who Do You Think You Are? returns Sunday, March 8, at 10/9c on TLC.
