Alan Alda Three Daughters
His oldest daughter is Eve Alda. She was born on December 18, 1958. Eve never really pursued a career in acting like her father.
According to Closer Weekly, she studied psychology at Connecticut College and lives in Massachusetts. She commended her father for his decision to reveal he had Parkinson’s disease to the world via social media. Alan Alda shared the news in a CBS News interview in 2018.
He once said, “My wife says the secret of a long marriage is a short memory.” It must work, since the couple have been married for over 60 years.
His second daugther is Elizabeth Alda. She was born on August 20, 1960. She was the first to start a career similar to her father. Elizabeth was in the movie “The Four Seasons” with her father. She was also in “Night of the Creeps” in 1986.
After a few small appearances acting, Elizabeth instead began her career as a special education teacher. According to Do You Remember, she also works to help bridge the gap between the hearing community and the Deaf community.
Lastly, his youngest daughter was Beatrice Alda. She was born on August 10, 1961. Her spotlight in Hollywood was shared with her father and sister. Her debut was also in the film “The Four Seasons.” After that, she was in “A New Life,” “Men of Respect,” and “Out Late.”
Beatrice is also a producer. She was a producer and director for two documentaries, “Legs: A Big Issue in a Small Town” and “Out Late.” Beatrice owns a production company called Forever Films Studio. She and her wife, Jennifer Brooke, have four kids together. The two have been married for over 10 years.
