Regis Philbin Wouldn’t Trade His Kids for a Million Bucks — Meet the Famous TV Host’s 4 Children!

He may be proud of his most famous hosting gigs on Live! With Regis & Kelly and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?but Regis Philbin is even more proud to be the father of his four kids.

The 87-year-old icon became a dad when he welcomed his first daughter, Amy Philbin, in 1961. At the time, Regis was married to actress Catherine “Kay” Faylen, who he tied the knot with in 1955. Nearly six years following the birth of their first child, Regis became a dad-of-two after welcoming his son, Daniel Philbin, in 1967. Sadly, The Regis Philbin Show host and Kay divorced in 1968 after almost 13 years of marriage.

His love life wasn’t over just yet, though. Just a year following his divorce from his ex-wife, Regis married his now-wife of almost fifty years, Joy Philbin. The couple wed in 1970 and shortly after welcomed two children together.

In 1973, Regis and Joy became the parents to their daughter, Joanna Philbin. Not even two years later, Regis became the proud dad-of-four after welcoming his third daughter, J.J. Philbin.

He may have received a plethora of awards and accolades throughout his life, but nothing brings joy to Regis quite like his kids! Scroll down below to meet the Million Dollar Password host’s four children.
