Zak Williams, the son of the one and only Robin Williams, has welcomed his firstborn and named the child after his legendary father.
36-year-old Zak Williams and fiancée Olivia June gave birth to an 8-pound boy last month. As the couple revealed, they have named the boy McLaurin Clement Williams, whereas the first name serves as a tribute to Robin Williams whose middle name was McLaurin.
Speaking of their happiness, the couple also revealed that they nicknamed their child Mickey.
“Introducing you to my little family!” June wrote as she shared a series of pictures on Instagram.
“We are beyond thrilled he chose us to be his parents, and obviously think he’s the best, smartest, and cutest baby ever!!
“Becoming a mom is something I’ve always known I wanted, but as an early stage startup founder sometimes sounded impossible, not because I didn’t think I could manage it, but because I knew the extent of bias in the industry against me as a female founder and the fight to be taken seriously in building a business focused on solving social challenges for women.
“I’m excited to be expanding my role from global change-maker startup CEO, connecting millions of women to their best friends, to a milk factory, raising a really amazing little man who has a boss mamma.
“None of this would be possible without the most incredible and supportive partner a woman could ever hope for. Zak, the headline is true, you’re already and will always be, ‘World’s Greatest Dad!’ Mickey and I are the luckiest.”
While Zak decided to follow his father’s footsteps and work as an actor, June is well-known for founding a community app called Hey! VINA which is labeled as “Tinder for (girl) friends.”
Zachary ‘Zak’ Pym was born as a result of the marriage between Robin Williams and Valarie Velardi who separated 10 years after tying the knot.
In 1986, Robin started a relationship with Marsha Garces, who worked as Zak’s nanny, before marrying her in 1989. Marsha gave Robin two more children, Zelda and Cody. The couple stayed together until 2010.
Just a year later, in 2011, Robin married his third wife, Susan Schneider, and remained in a relationship with her until tragically ending his life in 2014.
