Robin Williams' son welcomes first child and names him after late actor

Adding to the family! Robin Williams’ son Zak Williams welcomed his first child with fiancée Olivia JuneUs Weekly can confirm.

The mental-health advocate, 36, and the tech-startup founder’s son was born on May 22, according to a rep. The little one weighed 8 lbs. and was 20-and-a-half inches long.

The couple paid tribute to Robin by naming their son McLaurin Clement Williams. The baby boy shares his first name with the late actor, whose middle name was McLaurin. The pair plan to call him Mickey.

Robin shared his eldest son with his first wife, Valerie Velardi. The pair divorced in 1988 following 10 years of marriage.

The Oscar winner later welcomed Zelda, 29, and son Cody, 27, with second wife Marsha Garces. The two split in 2008, nearly nine years after tying the knot. The comedian wed his third wife, Susan Schneider Williams, in 2011.

Robin died of suicide at age 63 in August 2014. Schneider Williams opened up about his health struggles in a November 2016 interview on CBS This Morning. “[Parkinson’s disease] is actually an accurate diagnosis; however, that was the clinical side. The pathology was that he had diffuse Lewy body disease, which is what took him,” she explained at the time. “I can tell you in his autopsy, the coroner’s report was clear that he had Lewy body throughout all of his brain and brain stem — nearly every region.”

Lewy body disease occurs when abnormal protein deposits build up over time, affecting the brain and sometimes leading to changes in behavior, movement and mood.

Zelda spoke out about coping with her father’s death in August 2016. “It’s funny because for a while I think nobody would let me do anything. It was like, ‘Oh s–t, are you OK?’ and then even if you are OK, they’re like, ‘But what’s wrong?’” she said on Chelsea. “And so for a while, I was kind of left to my own devices and a lot of stuff came out of that because I ended up writing 12 scripts. But then, I was also like, ‘Is there something wrong with me?’ and also, I didn’t see a lot of daylight for a while. But now I’m doing a lot more of that!”

“If I asked you about art, you’d probably give me the skinny on every art book ever written. Michelangelo, you know a lot about him. Life’s work, political aspirations, him and the pope, sexual orientations, the whole works, right? But I’ll bet you can’t tell me what it smells like in the Sistine Chapel. You’ve never actually stood there and looked up at that beautiful ceiling; seen that. If I ask you about women, you’d probably give me a syllabus about your personal favorites. You may have even been laid a few times. But you can’t tell me what it feels like to wake up next to a woman and feel truly happy. You’re a tough kid. And I’d ask you about war, you’d probably throw Shakespeare at me, right, “once more unto the breach dear friends.” But you’ve never been near one. You’ve never held your best friend’s head in your lap, watch him gasp his last breath looking to you for help. I’d ask you about love, you’d probably quote me a sonnet. But you’ve never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn’t know what it’s like to be her angel, to have that love for her, be there forever, through anything, through cancer. And you wouldn’t know about sleeping sitting up in the hospital room for two months, holding her hand, because the doctors could see in your eyes, that the terms “visiting hours” don’t apply to you. You don’t know about real loss, ’cause it only occurs when you’ve loved something more than you love yourself. And I doubt you’ve ever dared to love anybody that much. And look at you… I don’t see an intelligent, confident man… I see a cocky, scared shitless kid. But you’re a genius Will. No one denies that. No one could possibly understand the depths of you. But you presume to know everything about me because you saw a painting of mine, and you ripped my fucking life apart.” (From Good Will Hunting)

“We were romantics. We didn’t just read poetry. We let it drip from our tongues like honey. Spirits soared. Women swooned, and gods were created, gentlemen. Not a bad way to spend an evening, eh?” (From Dead Poet’s Society)

“They’re not that different from you, are they? Same haircuts. Full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world is their oyster. They believe they’re destined for great things, just like many of you. Their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because, you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen. You hear it? Carpe—hear it? Carpe, carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” (From Dead Poet’s Society)
