Barry Williams, star of the beloved sitcom The Brady Bunch is a father again.
RumorFix.com first reported the news, that 57-year-old welcomed a second child.
Williams welcomed Samantha Rose, into the world this week, three weeks before her projected April 23 due date. The mother is Williams’s girlfriend Elizabeth Kennedy, 33. This is her first child.
Williams has a son, nine-year-old Brandon, from his previous marriage to Elia Mary Matt.
The actor’s relationship with Kennedy has a rocky beginning. He filed a restraining order against her in 2009 after she allegedly threatened to kill both of them when she lost a beauty contest. Williams also claimed that Kennedy withdrew $29,000 from his bank account and accused him of having an affair.
For a time, she was ordered to stay 100 yards from Williams.
The actor played Greg Brady, the oldest son of the Brady family, during the series 1969-1974 run on ABC. The role turned him into a teen idol. He reprised the role in several followup Brady specials, including The Brady Bunch Movie (1995). He also wrote the book Growing Up Brady: I Was a Teenage Greg, which details the behind-the-scenes drama of the classic series. Williams later narrated and produced the TV movie adaptation of the book.
