He is a supportive husband and a proud father to six good-looking sons.


Don Diamont once shared a photo of his big family, including a nephew under his custody, on Instagram and fans could not help but gush over them.

“You have a beautiful family,” one Instagram user commented.

The “The Young and the Restless” actor, known for his dashing looks, had always wanted to be a father and was more than happy to be blessed with a brood of seven boys.

Diamont welcomed four sons with his ex-wife Rachel Braun in the 12 years that he played the iconic role of Brad Carlton in “The Young and the Restless.” Diamont and Braun divorced in 2002.



While playing the role of Bill on “Bold & Beautiful” in 2009, his family grew with the arrival of his twins with then partner, Cindy Ambuehl.

Diamont and Ambuehl had been together for several years before marrying in 2012 in France.


In addition to his six children, the actor also raised his sister Bette’s son, Drew Mazur, following her death.

“I’m most proud of the fact that every time I’m on campus, person after person comes up to me and talks about what a good guy he is."


Diamont has opened up about his family life, describing himself as “just another dad.” He said,

“My wife and I, we’re homebodies. Working in daytime has allowed me to have a very normal, more or less 9-to-5 kind of a life.”



Their son Alexander Diamont has chosen the sports path, becoming a quarterback for Indiana University. Born in Los Angeles, Alexander became a quarterback at the age of five.

The actor said of his son:

“I’m most proud of the fact that every time I’m on campus, person after person comes up to me and talks about what a good guy he is. He’s always engaging with people, and that’s been the most gratifying to see.”

In his memoir “My Seven Sons and How We Raised Each Other,” Diamont revealed he always dreamed of becoming a father.

In the 288-page memoir, Diamont shares the joys of nurturing a blended family.
