TV Superman, Dean Cain was once the heartthrob of many girls around the globe, and one can hardly argue that he has lost his magic now.
He is known to be someone who has earned a tremendous amount of respect and success through his work in his professional career. But how many of you know that he has had quite the list of girlfriends in his life and also has a son with one of them. Let us take a stroll down memory lane see through his life.
Dean Cain's Battle with His Ex-Girlfriend for the Son:
Dean Cain shares a son with one of his girlfriends, Samantha Torres who was once a leading model in the industry. Dean and Samantha started dating in 1999 and welcomed a son in 2000, Christopher Dean Cain who is named after Cain's adoptive father.
Although the fact resides that Cain and his son live together happily, it was not like this forever as he was once made to battle to have the custody of his son. Cain, who has been raising his son solo since 2011 said,
“Ultimately, we just disagreed on the best way to raise Christopher.”
The guardianship was first awarded jointly in 2003, but Cain got it entirely during 2011. Awarded initially joint custody with Torres in 2003, when his son was just 2, Cain assumed sole custody in 2011, with a judge accepting the couple’s agreement to raise Christopher in one household. “Stability-wise, this is what’s best for him,” says the actor.

Cain says the two are now on better, if still tense, terms. “Christopher sees his mom as much as he wants,” says Cain. “But she’s got her hands full, and he’s got a stable place with me.”
It is clear that the actor was referring to her ex-girlfriend's twins - Elijah and Isabella, now almost eight - while talking about his busy schedule. Unlike many who don't care for their ex's new kids, Cain has taken quite a liking to his son's half-siblings. In his words:-
“Elijah and Isabella are ridiculously beautiful. I’d do anything for those two.”
Cain, who is not fazed to raise his son solo, said in an interview that his son is his favorite person in the world and he loves him with all his heart.
“He’s my favorite person on the whole planet. He’s going to have to fight to stop me from kissing him.”
Raising his son on his own seems to have taken an immense toil in his romantic life. Though envious of his friends going out daily and living the best life, Cain knows all too well where his priority lies at the moment. And it's definitely not the search of a wife or a girlfriend, for that matter.
The long list of ladies in the life of "Superman."
Previously, Dean Cain was engaged to a country singer Mindy McCready. The two started their relationship in 1997 and announced their engagement in September the same year.
However, the plans for their first wedding could not lead to fruition as the relationship between them ended, the main reason being Mindy's aggressive behavior and lies.
Moreover, Cain was also linked with Brooke Shields back in 2014, when Brooke revealed that Cain was the one to take her virginity. Shield and Cain were classmates, and Shield revealed in her memoir that she lost her virginity to Cain when she was 22. Shields revealed in her autobiography,
"He was incredibly and painfully patient with me regarding sex. I made him wait and wait and my mom kept track."

While talking on the subject, Cain expressed,
"Brooke was a very big part of my life, and I'm honored to have been a part of her life... "
Besides Mindy and Brooke, Cain has also been romantically linked with former playmate Pamela Anderson in the past. The likes of Gabrielle Rose, an American professional volleyball player, and actress-turned-model Denise Richards are a handful of women in the industry to fall for his boyish charms.
Previously, Dean Cain portrayed a gay role in the movie " The Broken Hearts Club," that raised speculations regarding his sexuality, thereby assuming him to be gay. But his involvement with several ladies in the past and present is a general giveaway of his sexuality.

Cain was made famous for Olympic hero Rebecca Adlington’s marriage break down when the two were suspiciously linked somehow.
Rebecca and Cain were fellow contestants in Channel 4 show "The Jump" and rumors hit everyone as Cain became a constant shoulder for Rebecca to cry on when she was ruled out of the competition after unfortunately dislocating her shoulder.
Some sources stated,
“Becky’s friendship with Dean may have contributed to the split. They grew close while filming The Jump in Austria. Being away from Harry for such a long time made things strained too."
“At the show’s wrap party they spent the whole night chatting away together, it was as if no-one else was in the room. Everyone on the show knew how close friends they had become by the end of it.”
In retrospect, the fact that they didn't try to hide their brewing romance backfired severely. Regardless, no further evidence surfaced the media, so the truth remains a mystery.
However, if you follow Cain properly, you might know that he is indeed looking for someone to get married to and call him his perfect wife.
Since the scandal, the actor - for better or worse - has relatively stayed off the limelight — the reason why his May 2018 sighting around Washington D.C. created such a buzz.
