Because of their parents’ celebrity, celebrity children are frequently followed by the media. Katharine Wilder, the adopted daughter of late American actor Gene Wilder, finds herself in a similar situation.
Katharine’s personal life is much more private than her father’s. But, as the adopted daughter of a famous person, Katharine couldn’t keep everything about her life hidden from the prying eyes of the media.
Katharine Wilder – Bio, Age, Family
Katharine Wilder has not revealed her birth date, so details about her age and birthday are unknown.
However, some information about her family has come to light, such as the fact that Katharine is the daughter of Mary Joan Schutz, who began dating late Gene Wilder (died at the age of 83) in 1965 after Gene’s sister introduced them.
Gene Wilder was an American actor, screenwriter, director, producer, singer-songwriter, and author whose real name was Jerome Silberman. Bonnie and Clyde, The Producers, Rhinoceros, The Little Prince, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Funny About Love, Alice in Wonderland, Will & Grace, and many others are among his best-known works.
Gene was previously married to Mary Mercier, whom he divorced in 1965, before dating Mary Joan.
When Katharine’s mother began dating her boyfriend Gene, Katharine developed feelings for him and began referring to him as father. The word “dad” had a big impact on Gene, and he decided to do what he thought was right.
Gene and Mary married on October 27, 1967, and Gene adopted Katharine. Gene and Katharine’s mother divorced after seven years of marriage.
When problems began to arise in Mary and Gene’s marriage, Katharine suspected Gene of having an affair with his Young Frankenstein co-star, Madeline Kahn.
Gene and Mary divorced on November 24, 1980. Along with the divorce, Gene fell out with his only adopted daughter, Katharine.
Even today, Katharine does not appear to have forgiven her father. During an interview with the New York Daily News about Gene’s book, Kiss Me Like a Stranger, Gene revealed how much he cared and loved Katharine. According to Gene, Katharine was one of the reasons, or inspiration, for finishing the book.
Unfortunately, Gene died before discovering whether or not Katharine had read the book.
