Detailing her strong bond with the award-winning actor, the media personality enthused: ‘I have a great family. 

‘I have a beautiful mother. I have a stepfather who stepped in and played a huge, huge part in sharing what it is to have a dependable father figure in our life. But it doesn’t take away from the fact that we didn’t know our dad.’ 

The media personality also shed light on her strained relationship with Bill, who also shares Oliver, 44, with his first spouse, Emily, 38, and Zachary, 34, with his second wife Cindy Williams, and Lalania, 14, with ex-girlfriend Caroline Graham. 

‘I think that estrangement is unfortunately quite common. It’s a 41-year-old issue’, the thespian shared.
