Who is Willie Aames?

If you were a fan of the 1977 American comedy-drama series, Eight Is Enough, you don't have to be introduced to Willie Aames, the curly blonde who played Tommy Bradford's role in the show. He is an actor, director, producer, and screenwriter.

How was the Early life of Willie Aames? 

Willie Aames was born on the 15th day of July 1960 to a firefighter father and a manicurist mother at Newport Beach, California, USA. Unlike most famous parents, Willies ' parents were strict disciplinaries who never wanted anything to do with Hollywood or to hear about the career of their son, despite his immense reputation. Aames received his high school education at Huntington Beach, California's Edison High School. He was part of the music group The Ensemble Madrigal during his time in Edison.

When and how did Willie Aames start his Career?

However, in the late 1960s, he made several appearances on the screen as a child. Some of the shows he starred at the time include Adam-12, Gunsmoke, Eddie's Father's Courtship, Disney's Wonderful World and many more. Many years later, Willie grew to become a force in the film industry due to his expressive style of acting. Today, he is a housewife in the showbiz community who excelled as a screenwriter, actor, and director of TV/film.

During an interview, Willie once admitted that his acting career was born from the desire to be recognized by his family and that his entry into the Hollywood scene greatly shaped his life. Since his Eight is Enough days from 1977 to 1981, he has performed in other TV series such as the Celebrity Fit Club of VH1, the Broke & Famous of VH1, Charles in Charge and others.

How much is the Net worth of Willie Aames?

Like 50 Cent and Nicolas Cage, they are not the only celebrities who have gone from being famous and
wealthy to spending, which has led to bankruptcy. When Willie Aames was in his twenties, he was a
millionaire, but after he had problems with money, he lost everything. In a tell-it-all interview in 2009,
the former child actor recounted how his life spiraled into poverty, revealing that he used to make a
whopping $1.5 million annually but subsequently failed after being overwhelmed by many financial
problems, including losing $150,000 in a failed TV show in 2007. After ruining his successful career,
Aames gradually bounces back. As of 2018, its net value is estimated at $100,000.

Who is in the Personal life of Willie Aames?

Willie Aames has been married to the actress Winnie Hung, whom he married on 21 March 2014. The
actor and Hung is his big fan, had been pen friends for thirty years before their marriage. They met face-
to-face in Vancouver for the first time after the ship of Aames (where he works) pulled into the area.
There is hardly any information available on the personal life and family background of Winnie Hung,
except that she has a happy union with her idol-turned husband.

The actress was born on 14 January 1972 and is a Hong Kong native. She is well known for her roles in movies like Supergirl (2015), Tomorrow's Legends (2016) and Dater 's Handbook (2016). The marriage of Winnie to the Eight is Enough actor may be her first attempt at marriage, but the same can not be said of Aames since he had married and divorced twice before settling down with Hung.

His first marriage attempt was with Victoria Averbach, whom in 1979 he married. Their relationship ended in 1984 and a child named Christopher was born. In 1986, when the actor exchanged his marital vow with the actress Maylo Upton-Aames, he had another wedding ceremony. The relationship of the couple became bitter after many years of living together as a husband and wife, which led to their divorce in 2009. Both share a girl named Harleigh Jean Aames.

She was born in Orange County, California on 21 July 1990. Aames ' second wife Maylo Elizabeth McCaslin was born on 15 January 1962 in Huntington Beach, California. It is best known that she co-authored the book "Grace is Enough" with renowned author Carolyn Stanford Goss and her ex-wife Willie Aames.
