JESSE'S SPECIAL BOND WITH HIS KIDS

Williams' love for his children knows no bound. He is happy when he is around them and his daughter Sadie proved it when she said her dad laughs when he takes her to the park. 

Last month, Williams delighted his fans on Instagram with a hilarious Father's Day questionnaire that his daughter had to answer about him.

Williams and Drake-Lee were known to be private about their personal lives. 

Sadie had quite a few things to say about her father and most of them were downright funny. "He's smart because he knows how to take me to Africa," she answered to one of the questions. 

Sadie listed cereal as the food her father cooks and when asked about what his favorite food is, she said he only has a taste for drinks and not food. 

WHY JESSE AND ARYN SPLIT UP

Williams and his ex-wife Drake-Lee welcomed their daughter a year after they got married in 2013. Two years later, they welcomed their son Maceo.

There had been rumors that Drake-Lee and Williams broke up because the actor had cheated on his wife with someone from work. Williams dismissed the allegations later on, saying that he would not blow a 13-year relationship like that. 

Drake-Lee later opened up about the divorce, saying that she felt abandoned after the split. According to her, all the friends she had made in LA were on his side and she was left alone. She also admitted that she never felt comfortable with the show business environment.
