Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
Celebrity dads come in various packages some of them successfully raising a prosperous family and some of them in doldrums. Their profession is the biggest source of their financial strength where as the same profession creates a source of discomfort, paranoia, insecurity among these dads. They are always chasing their dreams in order to make more money, earn a bigger name, power and they sometimes get to a point of no return.
Their children crave for attention, compassion and some personal time with these celebrity dads and many of them are so constrained by their professional life that they are unable to pay attention to their spouses and children.
Their spouses though many of them supportive of their hubbies, deep down are always insecure and live with a constant sense of fear of anxiety. They feel that their relationship will always be under threat from outsiders. Children in these families live a luxurious life but deep down are trying to fill in the vacuum created by their fathers position. They are constantly hounded by the press and too much limelight is cast on them so they are unable to live the normal life of a kid and are constantly yearning to break free.
