Despite being the producer behind “After Kony: Staging Hope,” and “Sanctuary,” Cindy is well known for her marriage to “Little House on the Prairie” star Michael Landon.

As revealed by PromiPool, Landon fell in love with Cindy while on the set of the TV show. Cindy was reportedly a makeup artist who managed to steal the actor’s attention.

The pair walked down the aisle on February 4, 1983, and welcomed two children during the course of their marriage. 

Unfortunately, their union couldn’t last the long haul as Landon passed away in 1991 at the age of 54 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Although it has been almost three decades since the world said goodbye to Landon, his memory still lingers on with his loved ones, especially his daughter, Jennifer.

During an interview with Closer Weekly, the 35-year-old discussed her relationship with her late father.

She said:

“He was always so present as a father. He’d watch me jump around the pool for an hour straight. I think he genuinely enjoyed it. I felt admired by him — which is an amazing feeling to have as a child.”

Jennifer also recounted her favorite childhood memories with the actor and spoke about how he made her brave.

This comes after Forbes reported that Cindy put the Malibu mansion she built with Michael up for sale for $18 million. According to the site, the 5-bedroom property, which has an ocean view kitchen and spans 6,900 feet, was first purchased for $7.5 million.

However, years after Michael passed away, Cindy decided that it was time to introduce to the market.
