His son never followed his footsteps, and he would welcome a son, in 1988, that would start a great career in Hollywood.

Will she also become an actress? Only time will tell!

Gregory Peck was an absolute Hollywood legend, you probably know him best from the classics ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, and ‘Roman Holiday’. Although his grandson has not built such an amazing career yet, he is on his way there. And with his looks, we believe he will.
