Colin Hanks Welcomes a Daughter


Tom Hanks is a grandfather for the second time over! The award-winning actor’s son Colin Hanks has welcomed his second child with wife Samantha Bryant.

“Ms. Charlotte Bryant Hanks has decided to join us,” the proud papa told People. “She’s as happy and healthy as we are overjoyed and tired.”

The couple, who were married in 2010, announced the pregnancy in April at the premiere of Tom Hanks’ Broadway play Lucky Guy. It’s the second daughter for the pair – Charlotte’s big sister, Olivia Jane, is 2. 

Colin, 35, followed in his actor father’s footsteps. He’s best known for his role on Dexter and a recent stint on NCIS.

After the birth of his first child, he joked that Tom and wife Rita Wilson were really looking forward to grandparenthood.

“They cannot wait to just dote on this kid with every single fiber of their being,” he said. “My wife and I are more than happy to give them our baby and say, ‘Here, watch her while we take a nap!’”
