Together, Todd and Dori share a son named Spencir, and during their separation, they made it clear that they were both committed to doing whatever it takes to maintain the well-being of their son.

Wanna give a Happy Birthday shoutout to actor Todd Bridges of TV’s Diff’rent Strokes! The year was 1979, I just turned 8-years-old and there were hardly any black children on television. But when I saw Willis Jackson do that backflip on Diff’rent Strokes? He was my hero. #May27 pic.twitter.com/SX2HyWhe3M— Shavar Ross (@shavar) May 27, 2020

Now 54-years-old, Todd Bridges recently looked back at his time on the show, revealing that his onscreen father, Conrad Bain, was more of a father to him than his real-life dad.
