Legendary actress Rita Moreno has a daughter from her second marriage to the late cardiologist, and her former manager, Leonard Gordon.
Fernanda Luisa Gordon is an actress and only daughter of the Hollywood legend, Rita Moreno, and her late husband, Dr. Leonard Gordon, who was a cardiologist before his death in 2010.
The legend's daughter, not only followed in her mom's footsteps but is also a carbon copy of the famous "One Day At A Time" actress.

The mini-Moreno was born in 1967, two years after her parent's marriage. The actress joined the family during the peak of her mom's acting career, with the late cardiologist doubling as his wife's manager.
The 88-year-old icon once opened up about combining parenting her only child with a hectic Hollywood career after her daughter was born. The mother of one explained:
"I was constantly on the phone with my husband, asking, 'How's the baby?' It was also hard because I'd returned to my profession, which was artifice, acting, make-believe. But motherhood, that was real."

Growing up in the spotlights encouraged Fernanda to develop an interest in the arts, venturing into a career in Hollywood with roles in "Adventures Of Brisco County, Jr," "Mister Rogers," and "An Inconvenient Woman."
The actress acquired an acting degree through her Master's program at the University of South California. In addition to a successful acting career, Luisa is also an accomplished graphic designer, as well as a jewelry designer.

At 29, the icon tied the knots with her husband, David Tyler Fisher, in 1996. Together, the duo parent two adorable sons, Justin Gordon Fisher and Cameron David Fisher, making Moreno a grandma-of-two.
Rita Moreno, who moved to Los Angeles with late husband shortly after welcoming their two grandchildren, has been open about her fondness for the latest additions, having gotten accustomed to having just one child.
"Our grandchildren are the light of our lives. One of the best experiences of our lives, if not the best, next to our daughter's birth, is helping birth our daughter's baby."

The grandmother lost her husband in 2010, two years after their move to LA. The then-retired-cardiologist was 90 at the time of his passing.
Shortly after his passing, a lot of people expected the mother of one to tie the knots again, but she chose instead to remain the devoted widow to her late husband.

Rita once revealed that during her marriage, there came a time when she was not happy in the union, and considered splitting from her husband, but gave up the idea for the sake of her only daughter, Fernanda.
Her sacrifice paid off, as the family stuck together through thick and thin, eventually becoming the epitome of happiness, with two amazing grandchildren, from her lookalike daughter.
