While Rip Wheeler may not have had a great childhood, Cole Hauser’s three children sure do! Meet the actor’s children.

Although Beth Dutton and Rip Wheeler are unable to have children of their own on-screen, Cole Hauser and his wife have plenty to be thankful about.

Hauser Family

Cole Hauser married professional photographer and former actress Cynthia Daniel in 2006.

You may have seen her in the hit 90s drama series Sweet Valley High. After her time on That 80s Show, Daniel decided to retire from acting in 2002. She then began to pursue a career as a professional photographer and started the company Five Arrows Photography.

Together, 45-year-old Cole Hauser and 44-year-old Cynthia Daniel welcomed three children into the world. They have two sons, Colt and Ryland, and a daughter, Steely Rose.

In 2004 the couple had their first child, now 16-year-old Ryland. By 2008, Cole Hauser became a dad to another boy, Colt Daniel. Colt is 12-year-old this year. Finally, in 2013, the two had their first girl, because every burly man like Rip needs a daughter to soften him up. Steely Rose is now eight-years-old.

Cole Hauser the Family Man

Cole Hauser is a huge family man, constantly posting photos of his family on social media. In a post from 2017, Hauser notes that family trumps all.

“The greatest gift of reward in life is a family.”

And on Father’s Day, Cole Hauser was counting his many blessings.

“I’m blessed with three amazing, different and healthy children. A happy Father’s Day to all dads today #enjoy.”

In an interview with the Havok Journal in 2020, Hauser reveals how he keeps his personal and professional life separate while also balancing them.

“I am pretty good about compartmentalizing working and family. They are two of my biggest passions. I am not the kind of guy who forgets about them. I am always making time for each and every one of my children and also my wife, also, as a family together– I am good about making time for the whole family. You have to figure that balance out. But as a father and a husband, you have to make the time and work just as hard at it.”

Cole Hauser and his family are goals and the standard for a functioning work/ life relationship.

Rip and Beth might also be lovely together, but they are like Bonnie and Clyde, a toxic mix. Although, with the recent turn of events, the Rip and Beth rein could be coming to a booming halt. Pun intended.
