In 1986, the pair married and then welcomed their first child, a daughter named Sophia O'Neill, in 1999. A few years later, Sophia's baby sister was born, and now the actor appears to be keeping up with his kids. But today, neither will we talk about the actor's love life nor his career, but about his dear daughter, Sophia.

Sophia Is A Daughter Of Renowned Actors

As mentioned earlier, Sophia was born in 1999 to successful actors in the United States. Though her exact birthdate is not revealed, looking at her social media profile, it seems the actress celebrates her birthday in August. She is Edward Leonard O'Neill and Catherine Rusoff's daughter.

Sophia's mother Catherine is also an actress who has appeared in films such as Married... with Children, Midnight Caller, and Highway to Heaven.

In addition, Sophia has a baby sister who is seven years younger than her, whose name is Claire O'Neill. As a big sister, she gives all her love and care to her little darling. On her social media, too, the emerging actress keeps flaunting her pics with the younger one, now and then. Meanwhile, it seems Sophia's sister Claire is keeping a good distance from the limelight, unlike her.

While Sophia's parents might seem all happy and content now, but there were times when the two had also been through some setbacks. In the late 80s, the couple is said to be separated, given that their love for each other was so strong, they got back together in 1993. Though during that time their children were yet to be born. Hence it is a relief that Sophia didn't have to face the separation of her beloved parents.

And, today, we can see how much Ed loves his children, as he considers his girls to be his crowning achievement. Hence the infamous lazy father, Al Bundy, the character he played, can be anything but lazy when it comes to showing his admiration for his little ones. So now Sophia's family is all about laughing, caring, and cherishing each other.
