Elizabeth Holmes shared an emotional reunion with her husband and her parents just five days after she reported to prison.
In pictures by Splash News that were obtained by the Daily Mail, Holmes was seen with her parents and her husband, Billy Evans, during a visiting day on Saturday.
They were photographed sitting together on a park bench under a tree in the federal prison in Bryan, Texas, which is where Holmes is set to serve her more than 11-year sentence.
Holmes was dressed in khakis with a brown undershirt, similar to the garb she donned in the first photo of her in prison.
The Daily Mail reported that Holmes was in tears for most of the family's emotional seven-hour visit.
In one of the pictures on Saturday, she was also seen holding her husband's pinkie during the visit — which could be seen as a violation of prison rules.
