The General Hospital star, Richard Dean Anderson who had been in an affair with a number of ladies is still unmarried? Yes, he is not married yet. Well, it came as quite a surprise for his fans and followers while he is known to date actress Apryl Prose for almost a decade.
Even though he is currently single, to our utter surprise, he has a daughter named Wylie Quinn Annarose Anderson whom he shares with Apryl Prose.
Yes, Apryl is the mother of his daughter Wylie. They were together for 6 years (1996-2003) but never got married. As every relationship does not have a happy ending, Anderson and Apryl split even after having a baby together.
Richard Dean's Relationship History So Far
The Pandora's Clock actor had romantic affairs with several prominent actresses including Marlee Matlin, Deidre Hall, Sela Ward, Teri Hatcher, and Lara Flynn Boyle. The list of ladies does not end here; he also dated a retired German figure skater Katarina Witt.
Though there were many ladies in his life, Dean's seriousness level never reached up to getting married to any of them. Might be he was still looking for the ‘right one’.
Isn’t he tired of running behind the chics? Might be he is done with it now as currently, he is residing with his daughter being a good father. We can’t describe how much he loves Wylie because she was the reason he left Stargate SG-1. Anderson stated-
"Being a father, well, I don't know if this is a change, but it makes me want to get out of here faster. Get off the clock. Just 'cause the baby is my reason for living, my reason for coming to work."
Why did Anderson choose Apryl over those girls? You might be excited to know the reason, right?
We all know how desperately he always wanted to have a child. His dream came true after his companion Apryl got pregnant. He was obviously very happy and was very sure to fulfill his responsibilities.
“I wasn't afraid to assume my responsibility as a father. Today, when I'm beside my baby, I savor every moment. Nothing bothers me: changing diapers, waking up at three o'clock in the morning when she coughs. Besides, Wylie is very pleasant, she never cries without a reason. If she demands attention, it's only to let us understand that she wants her bottle. Wylie is not temperamental, she is our happiness.”
Anderson’s life turned to a new path after the birth of his daughter. We don’t know either Richard is a good person to settle down with or not but he is a good father for sure.
Is He Dating Anyone At The Moment?
The 72 years old actor is currently single. He turned 72 in Janaury and resides in Malibu, where he helped design and build his Midwest-style home, which was once featured in Architectural Digest.
During the peak of his career, the actor starred in several films and TV shows like General Hospital, Stargate Universe, Stargate Atlantis, and MacGyver, to name a few.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Anderson has an estimated net worth of $30 million as of early 2022.
