Michael Richards, who became a dad of two in his sixties, enjoys a blissful life with his wife of ten years. Here's a glimpse into the actor's life as a family man!


"Seinfeld" star Michael Richards, a proud father-of-two, welcomed his second child at the age of 60. Nonetheless, the actor has enjoyed every bit of fatherhood.

From his first failed marriage to his current blissful marriage and his two children, here is a look into what Richards' personal life entails.

Richards was formerly married to Cathleen Lyons. The pair tied the knot in 1974 and were together for nearly two decades before divorcing in 1993. During their time together, Richards and Lyons welcomed a daughter, Sophia, who is now grown-up.

Adams sued the couple for $62k with an additional $200k for the loss of aesthetic value caused to her property.

However, very few details are known about her life. In 2010, Richards found love again when he tied the knot with Beth Skipp. This came almost twenty years after the actor divorced his first wife.

Together, Skipp and Richards have enjoyed a blissful marriage and are now parents to their son, Antonio Baz Richards, whom they welcomed in 2010. At the time, the actor was around 60 years old.


Though Skipp and Richards have kept their son away from the public eye, the little one has been seen out with his parents on a few occasions in the past.

In December 2013, the couple gave fans a first look at Antonio while walking hand in hand through the Los Angeles International Airport. Earlier this year, Antonio also joined his parents on a Sunday stroll in Los Angeles. The adorable family was spotted with some of their dogs.

Skipp and Richards make each other incredibly happy, but apparently, love is not enough to protect them or anyone from being sued.

In April, Skipp and Richards were sued by their neighbor, Maxine Adams, who accused the couple of maliciously cutting off her 30-year-old Brazilian tree.

Adams noted that Richards and Skipp cut the tree to give their own home more value as removing the tree reportedly gave them a better view of the pacific ocean.

Adams sued the couple for $62k with an additional $200k for the loss of aesthetic value caused to her property. It is, however, unsure how the two parties resolved the issue.

But as long as Skipp and Richards have each other, there is no doubt that the couple can go through any hurdle, be it in the court of law or outside.
