Eileen Davidson and Vincent Van Patten share a beautiful life -- but for the actress, it was a long and challenging journey before she met the man of her dreams.


Soap opera star Eileen Davidson is turning 63 years old. She was born in California on June 15, 1959, and grew up to become a successful producer and actress.

Davidson is known for "The Young and the Restless," "Days of Our Lives," and "The Bold and the Beautiful." She has ventured into the world of writing and published three books.

Davidson featured in "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" but left after three seasons in 2017. She also bid goodbye to "The Young and the Restless" in 2022.

The actress left these shows to focus on her family, including her children and her husband, Vincent Van Patten.



Before she exchanged vows with Van Patten, Davidson married Christopher "Chip" Mayer. The two married in 1985 but went their separate ways after half a year. Documents from the divorce outlined restraining orders from both parties.

When she obtained these documents in 2016, Davidson opened up about surviving domestic abuse but did not claim it to be Mayer. Looking back, she said she was codependent at the time and thought she could save the abuser.

Following Mayer, Davidson married Jon Lindstrom in 1997 after meeting him through a friend, but the two had a short marriage and divorced in 2000.



Davidson met her current husband, Van Patten, on the set of "The Young and the Restless." After falling in love, they married in 2003. The actress revealed she and Van Patten kissed while she was married to Lindstrom.

Van Patten was born into show business as the son of "Eight is Enough" actor and late trouper, Dick Van Patten. A former child star, Van Patten became an actor, athlete, and writer. He is known for 1995's "The Break," 2003's "World Poker Tour," and 2019's "7 Days to Vegas."



Davidson and Van Patten have one son together named Jesse. However, Davidson is the stepmother to Duke, 25, and Vince Jr., 22. Speaking about blended families, she said:

"You have to put the kids first, and we're all people with feelings and desires and needs. His ex-wife and I have acknowledged that we are each other's teachers, and we've put the kids first 99.99 percent of the time."

She also spoke about creating a fun house and continually pushing the children to take risks and remain faithful to who they are.


Emily Ratajkowski and her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard are a showbusiness couple as well. Ratajkowski is a supermodel, actress, and author, while her husband is a film producer.

Bear-McClard's movies include "Good Time," "Broken Flowers," "Uncut Gems," and many more. So far, "Uncut Gems" is his most acclaimed project.
