Here’s everything you need to know about Cindy Williams’ children
The Happy Days star was a proud mom to her two kids, which she welcomed with her first husband Bill Hudson. Cindy tied the knot with Bill Hudson of the musical trio Hudson Brothers in the year 1982. The pair got divorced in 2000 after 18 years of marriage.
Cindy and Bill’s first child joined them earthside in 1982. The former couple’s first baby together, daughter Emily Hudson, came into the world in 1982 which means she is 41 years old now. Williams gave birth to her and Bill’s second child together, son Zachary Hudson, in 1986. At the moment, Zac is 37 years old.
Despite being a popular actress, Cindy liked to keep her personal life away from the flashing cameras. However, both Emily and Zac accompanied their mom during her 2004 Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.
Then, Williams’ son Zachary was only 18 years old, on the other hand, her daughter Emily was around 22 years old. Cindy did not have an account on the social media platform Instagram, although, she had a Twitter account but she did not post any photos of her kids.
Who is the father of Cindy Williams’ kids?
The name of Cindy’s former partner and father of her two children is Bill Hudson. The Canaan Land actress got married to Bill in the year 1982. Their marriage wasn’t built to last for eternity. The pair got divorced in 2000.
Before tying the knot with Cindy, Bill was hitched to the world-famous actress Goldie Hawn. The blonde beauty and Bill walked down the aisle in 1976 and they remained married until they called it quits six years later.
During their marriage, Goldie and Bill welcomed two children: actress Kate Hudson, and their son Oliver Hudson. It has been reported by various media outlets that Kate and Oliver have a “strained” relationship with their dad Bill. As of this moment, it’s unknown what is their relationship with their half-siblings.
Despite her complicated relationship with her birth father Bill, the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star has talked about connecting with Zac and Emily during a January 2021 episode of her podcast, Sibling Revelry.
At that time, Kate told Oliver, “You know what I’ve been thinking about lately? Dad. I’ve been thinking about our sisters that we don’t spend any time with and our brother — brothers. We’ve got four siblings we don’t spend any time with.”
Hudson continued, “We’ve been talking so much about sibling relationships and distraught relationships or good relations — and we’re sitting here like we have the best family, we’re so great and yet we don’t ever acknowledge the fact that we have four other siblings.”
Along with Kate and Oliver, Cindy’s ex-husband Bill Hudson also welcomed a daughter named Lalania Hudson with a woman named Caroline Graham. Currently, Lalania is 17 years old.
