Everything You Need to Know about Keith Carradine

Versatile actor Keith Carradine has graced his audience for a very long time with his charm and acting.

Keith has kept the past alive from a long history of acting in the Carradine family.

He has been a part of many on-screen dramas, but, as it turns out, he has had his share of dramas off-screen as well. Here's some info regarding his wife, children, and controversies.

Unexpected First Child

In his young days, Keith was romantically involved with the fabulous actress Shelly Plimpton when working together in 'Hair.' 

However, their romantic bond ended as he left the show and moved to California. Only later was he informed that Shelly was pregnant with his child at the time. 

He also came to know that Shelly got back with her ex-husband at the same time. So, Keith couldn't be there for her during her pregnancy because he wasn't ready to be a father.

Shelly gave birth to their daughter, Martha, and raised her by herself and her husband until Keith was ready. It wasn't until Martha turned four that the actor met her.

Despite not having any romantic ties, Keith spoke highly of Shelly for raising their child by herself, saying,

She did a hell of a job raising Martha. I was not there. I was a very young man, absolutely terrified. She just took that in, and then she welcomed me into Martha's life when I was ready.

However, Keith and his former lover had no future together, but Keith did experience marriage later, which did not turn out as he expected.
