In this undated photo, Mankin plays with his then-8-month-old daughter, Madeline. "My worst fear for her as she grows up is that she will be ridiculed or teased for the way I look," he told ABC News. He and his wife, Marine Lance Corp. Diana Kavanec, were married in 2006 but have since divorced. (Steve Mankin )
