Robin Williams’ Eldest Son Names His First Child After His Dad


The eldest son of the late Robin Williams, Zak Williams and his fiancé Olivia June, welcomed their first child on May 22, 2019, weighing in at 8 pounds and measuring 20-and-a-half-inches. Zak and Olivia named their baby boy McLaurin Clement Williams, as a tribute to his late grandfather. The couple plan to call their firstborn Mickey for short.

Zak’s half-sister Zelda photographed her newly born nephew with his parents and shared the photo on Instagram, writing: “Meet Mclaurin Clement Williams, aka Mickey, aka Dr. Baby! He’s a squishably cute pterodactyl cooing tiny wonder and I love him so much already,” she wrote. “Big shoutout to Mickey on being the fastest swimmer, and huge congrats to @heyoliviajune and my big bro @zakpym on creating this little joy (and poop) factory!”

Zak, 36, a mental health advocate, regrets not spending more time with his father, whose death in 2014 shocked the world. Williams was 63 at the time of his death and had been battling depression for many years, and had early stage Parkinson’s at the time.

In a biography about his father, named Robin, Zak says he kicked himself multiple times for not visiting Williams during that time and stated, “Because I think that was a very lonely period for him. In retrospect, I feel like I should have been there, spending time with him. Because someone who needs support was not getting the support he needed.”
