Producer Norman Lear Was a Father of 6 Kids: Meet the Late Television Icon’s Children 

Some of the most popular shows on television came from the mind of Norman Lear. The late All in the Family creator had a blended family. During his three marriages, Norman welcomed six children: Ellen, Kate, Maggie, Benjamin, Brianna and Madelaine.

Norman married his first wife, Charlotte Rosen, in 1943 and welcomed their daughter, Ellen, in 1947. Their marriage lasted until 1956. He was married to his second wife, Frances Loeb, from 1956 to 1985. The pair moved to New York along with Ellen when she was a teenager. The couple welcomed two daughters together, Kate and Maggie, before their divorce. Loeb died in 1996 at the age of 73 after battling breast cancer.
