Hi Delphi!!! I did a little research on John Waynes children,...he has 3 sons and 3 daughters. One son, ETHAN,... and his 2 sisters (John's 3 youngest children), from his third marriage to "Pilar Pallet Wayne" (now Pilar Upchurch). Is Pilar your mother? When were you born? And if you don't mind my asking,..how is it you came to live in Australia? I hope you don't mind my questions! And I look forward to your response!(:

CG would have been happy to have other children & would have acknowledged them, there are no other children.If Karen R is willing to come on here & say she is the daughter of CG why isn't she willing to prove it ?? Surely its something she is proud of??
Please let him RIP

Wow, there are some real daffy people. Karen R. U are being made fun of. Delph is funny especially with the John Wayne brother. Karen enjoy the warmth of your real father if you know who he is, don't fanticize about being a celebrity spawn, and why CG, maybe,you are the child of John Wayne and Delph is your step sister. Personally, my celebrity father pick would be Frank Sinatra. Rose on Golden Girls wanted her uycelebrity father to be Bob Hope. Hey everyone, who would you want for your celebrity father? But I am blessed that I had a real nice biological father that I had a good relationship with and fond memories. God bless everyone...

Hi, I'm Natalie Grant, one of Cary Grant's many daughters LOL! These comments are great! All of a sudden Cary had another daughter, oh please give me a break! If indeed Cary had another daughter, besides his beloved Jennifer, he would have done something about it.

The FACT is......He did DO something!I was named as his daughter in a will! I did NOT believe it at the time! The famous are just human like you and I. Some people get involved with others.. they never SHOULD have in the first place, and CHILDREN RESULT...simple AND true! It astounds me, that, people THINK it's so hard for a famous person to sleep around when in fact their fame DRAWS women, and their money allows alot of travel...and MEETING Women!!!(Therefore Opprtunity) Also,..you shouldn't be calling people Daffy...and saying God Bless at the same time. And PLEASE leave Delphi alone she hasn't hurt you! A little Kindness goes a LOOOONG Way!(: Best Wishes to You!!!!

Karen - Why don't you take a DNA test? Have you been in contact with Jennifer Grant? I think it is beyond strange that you would want to change your children's name after seeing what she named her child. She had a close relationship with her Father. This topic was supposed to be about Jennifer Grant and somehow you made it about yourself.

Cary Grant Will Leaves Bulk of Estate to His Widow, Daughter
December 04, 1986|CATHLEEN DECKER | Times Staff Writer

The late actor Cary Grant left the bulk of his estate to his widow, Barbara Harris Grant, and his only child, 20-year-old Jennifer, according to terms of his will filed in Santa Monica Probate Court on Wednesday.

Grant, celebrated for his wit and charm during a career that spanned generations, died Saturday night in Davenport, Iowa, of a massive stroke. He was 82.

His will gave his four-acre Beverly Hills estate and its contents to his wife, whom Grant married in 1981. She also will receive half of the remainder of his personal estate.

The other half will be held in trust for his daughter, born during Grant's marriage to actress Dyan Cannon. Jennifer Grant will receive the income from the trust until she is 30, when she will gain access to half of the principal, attorney Jay J. Stein said. The remainder will be turned over to her when she reaches 35, Stein said.

Grant asked in the will, signed Nov. 26, 1984, that the value of the estate be described only as "in excess of $10,000." A full accounting of the estate, which will be filed in Probate Court, is expected to take several months, Stein said.

Grant's will also stipulated several cash awards. Among them was a $100,000 bequest to his longtime bookkeeper, Joseph Marin; $50,000 to the Motion Picture Relief Fund; $25,000 to Variety Arts International, and $20,000 to the John Tracy Clinic for hearing-impaired children.

The actor asked that his personal effects be distributed to family and friends, including his wife and daughter; long-time attorney Stanley E. Fox; singer Frank Sinatra; Grant's third wife, Betsy Drake; director Stanley Donen; financier Kirk Kerkorian, and Hollywood Park managing partner Marjorie L. Everett.

No one knows if Cary Grant had other children or not, since they weren't there.

noone believes you
you are giving people here a lot of plausible explanations and scenarios to show you are who you say you are (its "possible" cg had an affair and "possible" he had a secret child).
it just doesnt ring true.
it must be nice living in a fantasy world. a lot easier than facing reality.

The pastor of our parish, Rev. Cyril Leach, was a dead ringer for Cary Grant. People always remarked on his uncanny resemblance. This was 40 years ago when I was a young girl until my twenties. I did not know then that Cary Grant's real name was Archibald Leach. Did Mr. Grant he have any relatives living in California? He would have been about 10-20 years younger than Mr. Grant. Just a thought!

Remember Loretta Young had a daughter by Clark Cable. That just surfaced about five years ago. You never know.

Yep....I'm a daughter too & my mother was black! Do you think ole Cary would have acknowledged a mulatto child? O yeah, my other parent was frank Sinatra...he & old Archie were lovers. Didn't know Sinatra was black & a woman on top of that! Well, it just goes to show you that alot of stars have alot of secrets, which is totally the opposite of how the rest of us humans operate. Get over yourselves would you please? when did God die & leave us in charge of judging other people & their lives?
