Chuck Woolery’s Wives prior to Kim:
Chuck Woolery got married for the first time with American actress, television star and journalist Margret Hayes (deceased, 1997) when he was 20 years old in 1961. Chuck has three children from the first marriage, namely an adopted son Cary, a daughter Katherine and another son Chad, who unfortunately died when he crashed into a median while riding a motorcycle in 1986.
To People in 1997, he said, "The more tragic part of it was that the death came recently after Chuck bought him a car after sensing his son's irresponsible bike riding habit."
‘I rode with him on his motorcycle one time and said, "I'll never do this again. You're nuts. If you're not careful, you're going to kill yourself." The day he died I told him to drive his car, not his motorcycle", he added.
He had explained how his son Chad was and how he felt when he died. He also said:
"He liked to sing and play the guitar. He wanted to be an actor. He loved girls and all sports. He loved me and I loved him. When Chad died, I was crushed. Something died with me that could never be replaced.
Eight years ago, Teri, my third wife, wanted to have children. The problem wasn't the vasectomy I had done after Chad and his sisters—Melissa, 21, and Kitty, 31—were born I told Teri I didn't mind trying to get it reversed. But, I said, "if I had another son, I would be so scared something's going to happen to him." I can't tell you what that fear is like. We've since had two sons—Michael, 7, and Sean, 10 months. I have to be careful I don't smother them. I have watch myself to be reasonable about things. I'll have to tell them one day, "Look, I know you want a motorcycle, but you're not going to get one."
