Mary Kay Letourneau, the US schoolteacher who was jailed for an affair with a pupil who is now her husband, has given an interview with renowned broadcaster Barbra Walters.
The interview will be broadcast this Friday across the US, ABC have confirmed.
Letourneau and her husband Vili Fualaau will talk about their life together after almost a decade of marriage.
Letourneau was 34 and working as a schoolteacher in 1996 when she began an affair Vili, who was just 13 at the time. Letourneau was a married mother-of-four at the time when she was working in the Seattle school.
She served seven-and-a-half years in jail after she was convicted of raping Vilii.
However, less than a year after her release, she married Vili in 2005 after he requested a no-contact order between the pair be lifted.
The pair have two teenage daughters - Audrey and Georgia - who will appear during the interview.
Audrey and Georgia were conceived before Letourneau was sent to prison and before their father turned 16.
ABC say the couple will tell Barbra how they make their relationship work despite their difference in ages.
Letourneau, now aged 54, will also tell viewers how she is seeking have her 'sex offender' status lifted and pursue a career in teaching once again.
Her 31-year-old husband will also detail his struggle with alcoholism and claim the State let him down when he was a teenager.
