MEET WINKLER'S CHILDREN

Besides being an acclaimed movie star, Winkler has an admirable married life. Together with Stacey Weitzman, his spouse of 42 years, the "Barry" actor has two children — Max Daniel Winker and Zoe Emily Winkler.

Zoe Emily, 40, is the actor's eldest child, who, unlike her dad, chose a path away from the limelight. After graduating from Loyola Marymount University, Zoe opted to become a nursery school teacher. She is married to Rob Reinis.

WINKLER ON HIS PARENTING STYLE

The "Happy Days" star's son, Max Daniel, 36, chose his dad's career path but decided to work behind the scenes. He is a seasoned movie director and screenwriter who has worked on movies like "Ceremony," "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," and "The Flower," among others.

There was a time when the 72-year-old socialite battled breast cancer.

Once while speaking with "Life of Dad" about raising his kids, Henry Winker stressed the need to keep them away from the spotlights. He named different challenges ranging from preventing his kids from being spoilt to making sure they lived a normal life.

A SWEET LOVE LIFE

After kicking off his career in 1973, the "The Lords of Flatbush" actor landed more roles in several movie projects and went on to become well-recognized.

And just like his career, the now 74-year-old was lucky enough to find a long-lasting romantic life. Winkler met Stacey in Los Angeles back in the 1970s and struck it off from the start!

STAYING STRONG

While Henry forged on in his Hollywood career, his lovely wife stood by him and supported her spouse. Although she isn't much of a TV star, Weitzman took roles in a few movies.

The two made sure to be each other's better-halves and appeared at different star-studded occasions hand-in-hand.

There was, however, a time when the 72-year-old socialite battled breast cancer, which resulted in her getting a double mastectomy.

Her celebrity lover stood by her, and in their latest appearance at the 2019 Emmy Awards, Stacey looked quite radiant as she beamed beside the "Barry" star.
