FACTS ABOUT CODY ALAN WILLIAMS

Cody was born on November 25, 1991, under the sign of Sagittarius in San Francisco, California. He is the youngest child of Robin's second marriage to Marsha Garces Williams. The couple was married from 1989 until 2010.

CODY'S WEDDING WAS A TRIBUTE TO HIS LATE FATHER

While most of his siblings succeeded in acting, Cody found success in marriage. Cody and his beautiful wife, Maria Flores, tied the knot on July 21, 2019—Robin's actual birthdate.

His father may have turned 68 on the day of their special union. The couple's wedding ceremony occurred at Robin and Marsha's residence in San Francisco, California, where Cody and Zelda grew up.

The occasion was noteworthy in every way. In addition to honoring Robin, Cody and his wife paid tribute to their departed loved ones: Cody's late cousin Todd Elsner, Maria's aunt Carol Browning and grandfather Daniel Flores.
