Ted McGinley's Two Sons Are All Grown-Up and Inherited Their Dad's Handsome Appearance

Dashing actor Ted McGinley is the proud father of two grown sons, who have inherited his movie-star looks, and his 1000-megawatt smile.

"Happy Days" and "Married...With Children" alum Ted McGinley has two grown-up sons, Beau and Quinn, who inherited their actor dad's striking good looks.

Ted, who was considered one of the handsome men on TV back in the 80s, shares the boys with his lovely actress wife Gigi Rice, best known for her role as Marda Brooks in the series "Army Wives."

Ted met Gigi at Burt Reynolds's Maltz Jupiter Theatre where they were both working on a play

Ted and Gigi are an exception in Hollywood, a couple who has been married for 29 years, with never a hint of a scandal or impending divorce.

The couple lives with their two sons in Ted's hometown of Newport Beach on the outskirts of Los Angeles, where he and the boys can indulge in their shared passion for water sports.

Ted attended Newport Harbor High School, where he was involved in sports and was the star player on the school's water polo team. Ted was a lifeguard during the summers, and a girlfriend persuaded him to try his hand at modeling while in college.


Ted's All-American good looks were a hit with the modeling world, and soon he was picked for shoots with some of the most prestigious men's fashion brands. He was featured in GQ magazine, where a casting director spotted him and offered him a part in "Happy Days."

Ted's sons are easily as handsome as their dad and share his love of sports and outdoor life. Gigi and Ted welcomed their first son Beau in 1994 and Quinn in 1997. As good-looking as they are, neither of the boys seems to be intending to follow in dad's footsteps.


Ted's oldest boy Beau is now 25 and has earned himself considerable academic prestige at the  Washington University in St. Louis. Beau earned his Bachelor of Arts in Cellular Biology and graduated Cum Laude, and was recognized for his achievements in biomedical research.

The handsome Beau likes to keep a low profile, and who he is dating, or even if he is currently dating at all is a well-kept secret. Fans get the occasional glimpse into Beau's life when his mom Gigi, an active Instagramer, posts about her boys.


Quinn is Ted's youngest son, and at 22, he is dedicated to playing golf. He is an alumnus of the prestigious Loyola High School in Los Angeles, where he won the CIF Champion of 2014 and the CIF Southern Section Championships in 2015.

Unlike his brother, who seems to be focused on academics, Quinn is all about sports. In the last two years, Quinn has played in 20 tournaments, and his dedication may indicate an interest in becoming a golf pro sometime in the future.

Unlike his brother Beau, Quinn is in love, and he's not hiding it from the world. His girlfriend, Ella Wigram, is a sultry brunette who also happened to be his prom date. Ms. Wigram seems to have earned mom's seal of approval and is frequently featured on Gigi's Instagram account.


Ted and Gigi can be justly proud of their handsome boys. The couple is as devoted as ever, and keep their personal lives low-key, and away from the Hollywood party circuit.

Ted met Gigi at Burt Reynolds' Maltz Jupiter Theatre, where they were both working on a play. Ted admits that he was blown away by Gigi at first sight. He said:

"I walked in the door, and somebody hit me with a 2-by-4. We’re in the same play, and I never spoke to her. I just could not take my eyes off her, just could not. I was obsessed.”

That love has endured for 29 years and will continue for many more -- a wonderful example for their two boys to follow.
