Farah Fawcett was an actress in Hollywood who only had one child, whom she loved. Even though she had been with the father of her child for nearly 20 years, he kept asking her to marry him.
Farah Fawcett, an actress, said she faked being pregnant years before her son was born and used that time to plan her future.
In an interview four years before she had her only child, a boy named Redmond, with actor Ryan O’Neal, Fawcett said, “So I tried to set up my life.” The happy father, who had taken pictures of the important parts of the birth, cut the umbilical cord when the baby was born.
Fawcett had her first child when she was 37, and the press noticed that she didn’t look into other ways to have a child at that age.
In January 1985, Fawcett gave birth to her son. Even so, it was strange that she got pregnant while she was working and did not finish.
Fawcett liked being a parent, and when she was asked if she would want a child if she remarried, she said she would. When she met O’Neal, she was still married to her one and only husband, actor Lee Majors, whom she had married in 1973 but with whom she had no children.
But at the time, they were no longer together and going through a divorce. Even after they split up in 1982, marriage was still a sensitive subject.
In a December 1981 interview with Interview Magazine, Fawcett said she didn’t want to marry the father of her child, and she didn’t talk about getting married again. ABC News says that the man from Texas and O’Neal started dating in 1980 and lived together with their son Redmond.
During an interview with Barbara Walters on “20/20” in June 2009, the “Paper Moon” actor said that he had asked Fawcett to marry him many times over the years and that he was sure they would finally get married:
“I used to beg her to marry me all the time. But, you know, it had to be a joke.” We just made a joke about it.”
That didn’t happen, though, because they dated for 17 years before breaking up in 1997. Fawcett once said that the “Love Story” star was “too pushy” for her, so she turned down her offers.
The mother of one told Interview Magazine in December 1981 that O’Neal “barely lets me go to the gynecologist.”
Despite their split, Fawcett remained focused on her son, Redmond. She raised her 15-year-old son on her own, and when he got into trouble as a teen, it was hard for her to help him.
Diane, Fawcett’s sister, also had cancer and went through chemotherapy. Diane died of cancer in October 2001, at the age of 62, in Houston, Texas. Her body was put to rest. Fawcett’s mother also passed away, which was sad.
Then her father and son left Fawcett alone with them. She was diagnosed with anal cancer years later, and her health got worse. When Redmond’s mother got sick, he grew closer to his father.
But in 2009, Redmond got into trouble with drugs and was put in jail. His mother, on the other hand, didn’t know that he was in jail.
When Fawcett was sick, California officials let her son visit her at home for at least three hours. At the time, her son was in jail for breaking his probation on drug charges and going back to jail.
“Don’t make a racket!” O’Neal, since the “Charlie’s Angels” actress didn’t know that her son was in jail. Redmond cried as he got into bed with his still-sleeping mother to cuddle with her.
Fawcett died on June 25, 2009, after a three-year battle with cancer. She was 62 years old. Good Housekeeping says that her friends told people the last things she said before she died.
The “Playboy” model’s friend, Mela Murphy, said she was worried about her son’s future. Redmond was 24 years old when his mother died, and Murphy said that she told Fawcett she would take care of her son.
“Redmond” was what she was calling him. That was the last thing she said. I told her I would take care of him and always be there for him. “You can go now,” I told her. She was dead in just a few hours.
CNN said that Redmond went to Fawcett’s grave with his father and stepsister Tatum for the first time since the anniversary of her death in June 2010. This was a year after she died.
He talked about how her final resting place was set up, told her he was glad to see her, and told her he was doing well. expressed
“It was really great and put together very well.” “I’m just glad I can be there for her and reassure her that everything is fine.”
At the time, Redmond was probably on a day pass from a drug rehab center in Pasadena, California, where he was getting treatment because the court told him to.
At the same time, his father talked openly about his healing journey at a private meeting with family and friends at the Farrah Fawcett Foundation’s offices in Beverly Hills.
O’Neal said that it was clear that Redmond had tried to get better, which made them happy, and that was why he was allowed to show his face.
“You know, to show everyone my face and let them know I’m fine.” Redmond told him, “You can’t stay hidden forever.” Tatum, who is his step-sibling, told him he looked good and that his mother would be “proud” of him.
