The stars of the hit American sitcom "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" were the great-grandparents to Remi Moses, who recently started teaching at a film institute.
Remi Moses, the daughter of actress Tracy Nelson and William R. Moses, took to Facebook to announce the big news.
She will be teaching three classes on Saturdays for the Lee Strasberg institute's young actor's program. A proud mother, Tracy shared the original post on her Facebook.
Remi was born to her parents, Tracy and William, on August 11, 1992. It was not easy for her parents to conceive her because of Tracy's ailing health due to cancer.
Born to the famous singer Ricky Nelson and Kristin Harmon on October 25, 1963, Tracy was naturally inclined towards making a career in the showbiz.
She landed her first significant role in the American sitcom "Square Pegs" at the age of 19.
Just when her career was kicking off, Tracy's father passed away at the age of 45 in an aircraft accident.
To add salt to the wound, a rumor that the airplane crashed because her father freebased cocaine began to spread even though the FAA established that a faulty system in the aircraft caused the mishap.
After her father's death, Tracy's mom became too emotionally unstable to take care of Tracy's brother Sam. So her brother, Mark Harmon, petitioned for his custody.
However, Mark withdrew the petition after the custody battle.
Tracy tied the knot with actor William R. Moses on July 25, 1987. Everything was going fine until one day when she started noticing how weak and tired she felt every day.
One night, she dreamt about her father wherein he asked her to see a doctor. Little did Tracy know that the dream would turn out to be a blessing for her.
Upon visiting the hospital, the doctors found a small tumor in her chest. A biopsy confirmed that Tracy was suffering from stage 2 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
After a 7 hour long surgery and two weeks of chemo treatment, Tracy felt like she couldn't do it anymore. But she was not ready to give up yet.
The actress went into full remission by mid-1988. Now, she and her husband wanted to bring a child into this world.
Tracy finally got pregnant with Remi after spending two-and-a-half years trying to conceive. In an interview with People, the actress revealed how she was happy and worried at the same time when she got pregnant.
“I was stunned. It was a relief on the one hand, but terrifying on the other, I wondered whether my baby would be all right,” Tracy said.
Luckily, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl who weighed 7 lb — 11 oz.
Recently, Tracy paid homage to her late grandmother Harriet on what would be her 110th birthday.
