Gilbert Gottfried was a great comedian and actor, but he also had a significant role in his life as the father of two children, Max and Lily. Here’s everything you need to know about his two children.
Gilbert Gottfried, a popular comedian and actor who died on Tuesday, April 12 at the age of 67, has left Hollywood in sadness. Recurrent Ventricular Tachycardia was a symptom of Myotonic Dystrophy type II. The terrible news was relayed by Gilbert’s family in a statement on the late star’s Twitter account.
Although most people are familiar with the comedian for his uncanny ability to elicit chuckles and smiles, few are aware that he was also a loving father to two children, Max and Lily.
Not much is known about Lily, as the family liked to stay mostly out of the spotlight, although Gilbert did join TBS’ Tournament of Laughs with help from both of his kids for some funny skits. He noted that his daughter also showed him how to use TikTok.
Max Aaron Gottfried, Gilbert and Dana’s second child, was born on May 18, 2009.
Max, unlike his sister, was more at ease in front of the camera, posting frequently on Instagram and sharing behind-the-scenes footage with his family. He’s been spotted on The Daily Show and taking photos with musician Josh Groban, among other locations.
He enjoyed being a part of his father’s showbiz activities! Furthermore, as Gilbert revealed in a funny Instagram post in 2019, Max is good friends with the kid of another prominent comedian and friend of Gilbert’s, Penn Jilette.
