Bob Newhart’s Children: Everything To Know About The 92 Year Old Star’s 4 Kids

Published

on

Bob Newhart

Bob Newhart is an Emmy winner and film & TV icon, but he’s also the proud father of 4 amazing children! Find out more about them here.

Bob Newhart, 92, is an American actor and comedian who’s accomplished more in his epic career than most people in the business can say. In addition to his incredibly popular program The Bob Newhart Show which became a hit in the ’70s, the Oak Park, Illinois native has appeared in countless shows and films as a beloved figure, finally winning an Emmy in 2013 for his character Professor Proton on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory.

In addition to his successful, longstanding career, Bob also has a decades-long romance with his wife, Virginia Quinn, or “Ginny” with whom he was set up on a blind date by Buddy Hackett. “[Buddy said], ‘I’ve got a girl for you. She’s going with another guy, but I don’t think he’s right for her, so I’m going to fix you up on a blind date,’” the Elf star told People in 2019. “‘You’ll meet her, and you’ll date and you’ll get married. Then you’ll have kids, and you’ll call one of the kids, Buddy.’”

Well the two did end up getting married (in 1963) and having kids — four kids, to be exact. The pair share RobertTimothyJennifer, and Courtney together, as well as 10 grandchildren! “I’ve always said: “I don’t care how successful you’ve been in this business, if you haven’t had a good family life, what have you really achieved? Not an awful lot,” Bob told Guideposts.

Find out more about the happy couple’s four adult children below.

Robert Newhart 

Robert was born on November 4, 1963. The oldest of his four siblings, Robert has pretty much liked to stay out of the spotlight for the most part, although he did follow in his father’s footsteps for one film, Heart and Souls, in 1993.

Timothy Newhart 

Bob and Ginny welcomed their second son, Timothy, in 1969. Although Timothy didn’t continue on with a career in entertainment, he did work in the early ’90s as a production assistant on his father’s show Newhart as well as on the popular flick Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. In addition, he worked as an associate on the TV series Get a Life from 1991-1992.

Jennifer Newhart 

Jennifer was born in 1970 and, unlike her older brothers, she stayed out of the entertainment business and didn’t try and follow her father for a career path in show business. Not much can really be found about Jennifer as she likes to stay out of the spotlight. She has, however, joined her father (along with her siblings and mother Ginny) for a few red carpet events here and there.

Courtney Newhart 

Courtney, the youngest child of the Newhart clan, was born in 1977. Courtney once appeared on her father’s program Newhart in 1986 and also earned a credit as a production assistant on George & Leo in 1997, although her acting/entertainment industry credits don’t really expand from there. Much like her siblings, Courtney has left the showbiz stuff up to dad and has stayed more focused on raising family!

How Britney Spears’ Fiancé Sam Asghari Is Helping Her Cope With Family Drama

Published

Britney Spears may have a ‘Toxic’ relationship with her family right now but that certainly isn’t the case with her fiancé Sam Asghari who ‘has her back.’

Britney Spears has been swamped with family drama but fortunately, she has the support of her loving fiancé Sam Ashgari. She just broke free from the conservatorship her father Jamie Spears put her under and she has been feuding with her sister Jamie Lynn Spears but a source close to Britney told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that Sam has been helping her cope. “Britney has appreciated Sam more than ever and he has really been there for her in every way,” the source shared.

“It’s been such a difficult time for Britney, but she knows Sam has her back,” our insider added. “Sam is one of the people that Britney feels really gets her and listens to her. He understands what she needs out of the relationship and he’s there for it. Britney has so much to celebrate and so much to be thankful for. She’s in a really good place and just wants to put all of this drama behind her.”

Even the “Toxic” star’s inside circle are “so grateful” for Sam because of how “happy he makes her.” A second source confirmed that these times have been tough for the pop star. “Britney has been dealing with a lot lately. She looks at everyday as a blessing now that she is free, but this past week has been extremely hard on her. Sam has been there for her through all of this,” they shared.

“Right now, Sam is doing things to try and take her mind off the drama that is going on with her family,” they continued. He is doing the best that he can, but it is hard. It is hard to see her relive all this stuff with Jamie Lynn. He reminds her that, at the end of the day, she wouldn’t even have a platform to speak from if it were not for her.” He has been trying to help her connect with her favorite pastimes like taking her dogs for walks or going horseback riding.

Ultimately, she feels “safe with him” and “can’t wait to be Sam’s wife.” Luckily for Brit, that time will come soon enough. The couple is in the middle of planning their big wedding ever since she announced their engagement on September 12, 2021. For now, the “Baby One More Time” singer will have to focus on squashing her feud with her sis so that she can be there on her big day.

Charlize Theron Takes Daughters Jackson, 10, & August, 7, Shopping In LA — Cute New Photos

Charlize treated her daughters to a fabulous shopping trip and based on the amount of shopping bags she was holding, the trip looks like it was a success!

Charlize Theron, 46, took her daughters Jackson, 10, and August, 7, on a shopping trip on Friday, Jan. 21. As they strolled down the streets of Studio City, the South African actress wore all black as she held a bright blue shopping bag in one hand and wrapped her other arm around Jackson. Jackson wore an all-gray outfit as she held a red shopping bag just like her mom.

August skipped ahead of her older sister and mom looking as cute as ever wearing a plaid overall dress, white tee and leggings. All three of them wore face masks as the coronavirus pandemic continues on. Based on their happy expressions and the amount of shopping bags they had, it seems like this mother-daughter bonding time was a success.

The Bombshell actress does her best to keep her kids out of the limelight but occasionally, she gives fans glimpses of her little ones growing up. At the top of the new year, she posted a picture of her and her youngest daughter August on Instagram. They laid on the couch together as August enjoyed her new VR headset. “New year, same energy,” Charlize captioned the photo. “C’mon 2022, don’t be a b****!”

The Snow White and the Huntsman actress recently opened up about how Jackson came out as transgender. “I thought she was a boy, too,” Theron told DailyMail. “Until she looked at me at 3 years old and said, ‘I am not a boy!’”

“My daughter’s story is really her story, and one day, if she chooses, she’ll tell her story,” Charlize explained. “I feel like, as her mother, for me, it was important to let the world know that I would appreciate it if they would use the right pronouns for her. I think it became harder for us the older she got that people were still writing about her in the wrong pronouns, and also I was still talking about her in the press using the wrong pronoun. It really hurt her feelings. I don’t want to be that mom.”
