Meanwhile, Closer Weekly revealed that Tom had two other children, Truman and Elizabeth Ann. While he shares Chet and Truman with Rita, Colin and Elizabeth Ann were born during his relationship with Samantha Lewes, who died in 2002.

All four children managed to go into entertainment in one way or the other as Truman reportedly works as an intern at a production company and Chet had guest-starred on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Shameless," before he landed a recurring role on "Empire."
