Susan Schneider, Robin Williams wife, wanted to have children with him, according to a new report.
Schneider, 50, a graphic designer and painter, met Williams in 2009 and helped him recover from heart surgery. They were married in 2011, marking Williams’ third marriage.
Though they hadn’t had any children in the years they were together, Schneider still hoped to have several kids soon.
It was always a dream for Susan to start a family with Robin,” an insider told Radar Online. “It would have been nearly impossible for Susan to get pregnant because of her age, 50, but that didn’t stop her from hoping it could happen. They could have used a surrogate or adopted.”
Williams, though, was very hesitant to have any more children.
Robin was very hesitant to have another child. He had already raised three children [Zelda, 25, Zak, 31, and Cody, 23]. There was also major hesitation because of his history of depression.”
The fact that Williams had recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease was another strike against having more children.
Williams was found dead from suicide in his home in Tiburon, California on August 11 by his personal assistant. He is believed to have killed himself sometime late the previous night or early that morning.
Schneider is distraught over the death. She “remains in seclusion, and is partly blaming herself for Robin’s suicide,” the source said. “No one is blaming her. Susan shouldn’t blame herself.”
