Brandon Eric Williams
The Blending Christmas star welcomed his first child with his second wife, Eila, in 2003. Barry’s son, Brandon Eric Williams, 20, was born about two years ahead of his father’s divorce from Eila. In August 2021, Barry discussed his children during a rare interview with Closer Weekly. “My son is a musician, but also a full-time student, and hasn’t made any 0 about going into that as a profession,” Barry explained at the time regarding his son’s future career plans.
Despite being uncertain if Brandon would like to pursue a career in entertainment, Barry clarified that he supports his kids either way. “You know, I’m a dad, so I would be 100 percent supportive of whatever they chose to do,” he added. Barry’s children seemingly live private lives as their father does not share photos of them on social media.
Samantha Rose Williams
Nearly a decade later, in 2012, Barry welcomed his daughter, Samantha Rose Williams, with his ex Elizabeth Kennedy, as reported by TODAY. At the time, the father-of-two made headlines for welcoming a second child at 57 years old. In contrast, Elizabeth was 33 years old at the time of her daughter’s birth. Samantha arrived ahead of her due date and was born in early April of that year.
Barry also spoke about Samantha’s possible future career in entertainment with Closer Weekly. “My little girl is a natural. She’s got a big personality, but I am not sure she would choose [showbiz] as a profession, either,” he said in 2021. Elizabeth and Barry eventually split in 2013 ahead of their child support battle. Elizabeth spoke to Extra in 2015 and slammed Samantha’s father for his alleged treatment toward her.
“When he found out I was pregnant he wasn’t exactly thrilled at first,” she claimed at the time. “I was just so overjoyed when I found out I was pregnant I didn’t care if he was in the picture now.” She also alleged that Barry had not seen his daughter more than a couple of times that year. “He’s not making good choices when it comes to Samantha and I really feel like at some point he’s gonna have to answer to her for that,” she added.
