There were times in their marriage when they were separated. They’ve been apart for decades.

From a previous marriage, his wife has a daughter named Chris. Sid still considers Chris to be his daughter, and her children, Justin and Kally, to be his grandchildren, despite the fact that he never formally adopted her.

From his marriage to Barbara, Sid has a son named Chad Hartman. Chad was given joint custody of the couple after their divorce, but Chris was not. Things in the household became a little more complicated as a result of this.

Sid’s sentiments for both of his children, though, remained constant. He is the proud father of a talented and amazing son and daughter.
