(WMC-TV) – The marching ducks at the famous Peabody Hotel are a longtime tradition in Memphis. It was one of the attractions the woman Congressman Steve Cohen is now claiming as his daughter checked out on a recent trip to the Bluff City.
On January 8, Victoria Brink tweeted, "packing for Memphis tomorrow!"
She followed up a day later with, "at the Peabody Hotel about to watch the Peabody ducks march! Can't wait!"
According to Cohen, he learned that he fathered the now 24-year-old woman three years ago. She is now featured in a YouTube video for a swim wear company.
"I'm really into fashion and PR," she said in the video.
Brink says she studied fashion merchandising and business at Texas State University and that she has two dogs and loves tacos.
Texas is where her mother, Cynthia White Sinatra, practices law. According to her website, Sinatra also has an office in Beverly Hills and has worked as a consultant for Court TV.
She makes no mention of Congressman Cohen anywhere but appears to have been a law clerk and legislative consultant at the time Victoria was conceived.
Brink was born on April 22, 1988 and is the youngest of Cynthia Sinatra's three daughters. There is no indication of where the last name "Brink" comes from.
It appears as if Frank Sinatra, Jr. may have been Brink's stepfather at one time.
