Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson’s son might be able to change his life now that he is a father himself. The baby daughter was kept secret and is reportedly already 8 months old. The troubled Chet has a second chance to turn his life around.
“Tom and Rita are really excited to have a new granddaughter. They’ve fallen in love with the little girl,” stated a source.
It seems like the little girl was the result of a one-night stand with a woman named Tiffany, and although people might think he was under the influence of drugs, apparently the 26 year old has been sober ever since. Is fatherhood teaching him to be more responsible about his decisions?
“Tom’s had a lot of issues with Chet over the years, given Chet’s drug and alcohol issues, but this baby has changed all of that. Chet’s now sober and is currently working as a drug counselor. He lives in Santa Monica and pays $2,800 a month in rent, with the help of his dad,” added the insider.
The baby girl is taken care of mainly by her mother and her family but that does not stop Chet from claiming that she has “truly changed his life.”
“Chet is financially supporting the baby, of course, with Tom’s help. They adore that baby and even spent Halloween with her. She will always be loved and taken care of by the Hanks family.”
Tom Hanks blames himself for his son’s drug addiction.
“Tom has been beating himself up over Chet losing his bearings. He’s putting the fault squarely on his shoulders for not being attentive enough during his formative years. Instead, he chose to put his career first and foremost before his family,” explained the insider.
Chet has been to rehab multiple times but each time he relapsed. The worst thing he did under the influence was probably during a trip to London where he trashed his hotel room and caused $2,000 in damages.
