However, much more than being an accomplished actor and extraordinary comedian, Romano has a role he takes most seriously, his position as a father.
More than being a celebrity, Romano is a doting father to four beautiful kids from his longtime marriage to Anna Scarpulla. Anna and Ray met while working at a bank together, and in 1987, they tied the knot, The Famous People noted
Through all these years, Anna and Ray's marriage has endured the test of time, including a battle with breast cancer when she was 48.

In all of these challenges, the lovebirds have remained proud parents to all of their four lovely children.
ALEXANDRA "ALLY" ROMANO
Three years after her parents got married, Alexandra was welcomed into the world in 1990. Just like her father, Ally, as she is usually called, inherited not only her father's look but also his acting talent.
She acted alongside her father in "Everybody Loves Raymond" as the recurring character of Peggy's daughter, Molly.
Some of her other works include "Ice Age: Continental Drift," "The Rules of Lacrosse.. and the Men Who Break Them." Ray's role as a father had so much impact on his career that his daughter in the sitcom was named after Alexandra.
Three years after Alexandra was born, the twins Matt and Gregory Romano were born. According to reports by Now To Love, the twins on the show were originally named after Romano's twins, Matt and Gregory.
However, when Ray's real twins were on set, the similarity in names caused some confusion, so they were changed to Geoffrey and Michael. Matt is also an actor, and some of his famous works include "Up in the Air," "Ice Age: The Meltdown," and "Everybody Loves Raymond."
Just like the rest of his family members, Gregory is also an actor. However, he branched out into writing. The 26-year-old starred in "Ice Age: The Meltdown" and wrote the television special "Grande soirée des parodies Tv" in 2015, according(https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2183369/) to IMDb.
The baby of the Romano clan was born on February 16, 1998. Given that Joseph is just 21, the youngest of the family hasn't quite carved a niche for himself in the entertainment industry or career world. In 2016, he, however, graduated high school, and his father was thrilled about it.
Ray shared a sweet photo of all the kids, including Anna doting on Joe on his graduation day and joked in the caption,
"He's made it 13 years without getting expelled. Congrats to the big, little Romano. #joesfaceisonMandMs #ByeCHByeCH”
Being a father sure looks wonderful on Ray, and he is, no doubt, so proud of his kids!
