Huda says she only recently learnt of the exact details of her sister’s passing, a tragedy her family wished to shield her from.
Following the sad event, Huda, who was born in Saudi Arabia, reveals she experienced further dramatic life change when her family arranged for her to marry her late sister’s husband, Abdulmunem.
'It was awkward and I didn't know if it was the right thing to do, but I was young,' the cooking sensation told TV Week.
'My parents knew he was a good man and it's the traditional way of marriage.'
Despite the tragedy and turmoil of the past, Huda says her 15-year marriage has been a very happy and successful one, and the couple have three children.
