‘Brady Bunch’ star Christopher Knight says TV mom Florence Henderson ‘blessed’ his marriage before her death – Yahoo News

When Christopher Knight proposed to Cara Kokenes, his TV mom welcomed her with open arms.

Florence Henderson, who has long been celebrated as one of America’s most beloved TV moms thanks to her role as Carol Brady in the ‘70s sitcom “The Brady Bunch,” passed away in 2016. She was 82.

Knight, who played her son in the series, told Fox News the star approved of his fourth wife. The couple tied the knot in 2016. He noted that Henderson “blessed” their wedding before her passing.

“That was very special,” said the former child star. “I had to hear jabs and certainly took joking, ribbing from her at the attempts I had made in the past that didn’t stick. Didn’t work. But she did. [Florence] met Cara. It wasn’t asked for. She volunteered it. But that’s the position she took in my life. My mom had passed away, but even before my mom did, I had two moms. At that point, I had one. And it was just a wonderful feeling.”

“Unfortunately, we weren’t able to follow up on the plans that we had made after our wedding to come back and visit because she had passed away,” said Knight. “But we did get a nice, wonderful dinner and her support before that happened. She’s just a huge person in all of our lives. And I think part of the reason that we’re well-adjusted or that we still get along is that we had her. I don’t know if you call it old school or just classy or caring. But she was just a wonderful person to have had as somebody that you can look up to. And, by example, try to become.”

The remaining castmates have kept a strong bond over the years. And fans of the show are getting a special treat this holiday season. On Sunday, Lifetime is premiering their new Christmas movie “People Presents: Blending Christmas,” which explores how a lovely lady named Emma (Haylie Duff) and her beau Liam (Aaron O’Connell) attempt to bring their families together with “a Bunch… of unexpected guests.”

The family members are played by original “Brady Bunch” stars Barry Williams (Greg Brady), Knight (Peter Brady), Mike Lookinland (Bobby Brady), Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady) and Robbie Rist (Cousin Oliver), as well as “Brady Bunch” movie stars Jennifer Elise Cox, Beth Broderick, Telma Hopkins and Greg Evigan.

“Those relationships are now 53 years in the making,” the actor explained. “That was one of the draws. And it meant that I could catch up with Greg and Mike. It’s a hoot. It’s a gift. My wife and her mother are also huge Lifetime Christmas movie fans. There’s not a football game on when I go back and visit …….

The country is taking this decision for the sake of daughters,” Modi said.
