Confusion Among Netizens: Krysten Ritter and Late Actor John Ritter’s Coincidental Family Name & Profession

Coincidental Family Name & Profession.

Hollywood: Actress Krysten Ritter and late actor John Ritter have no family ties. The resemblance in their surnames is just a matter of coincidence.

Krysten is from Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, and was born on December 16, 1981, to her parents, Garry Ritter and Kathi Taylor.

On the contrary, the late actor John Ritter was born in Burbank, California, on September 17, 1948, to his parents, Tex Ritter (legendary country singer/actor) and actress Dorothy Fay.

Therefore, Krysten Ritter and John Ritter are from distinct bloodlines; they are two separate personalities with similar family names but no family connections.

Coincidental Family Name & Profession

Krysten Ritter grew up on a cattle ranch near Shickshinny, Pennsylvania, where her mother, stepfather, and sister live; her father lives in nearby Benton.

Krysten is the mother of a son, Bruce Julian Knight Granofsky (born in July 2019), whom she shares with her boyfriend, Adam Granduciel (Composer). They have been together since August 2014.

Talking about the late actor, John Ritter delighted his audiences on both small and silver screens throughout his career.

John was a proud dad to four children. He shared three children with his first wife, Nancy Morgan (married in 1977 and divorced in 1996): sons Jason and Tyler and daughter Carly.

At 54, the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor, John, suddenly passed away on Sept 11, 2003, after suffering an aortic dissection.

Ritter fell ill while filming an episode of ”8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter” on September 11, 2003, and suffered from chest pain, nausea, and vomiting.

In 2004, shortly after his d*ath, Ritter was nominated posthumously for an Emmy for his role in ”8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter.”

Weeks after John’s death, his wife, Amy Yasbeck, founded The John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health with a focused and urgent purpose to prevent unnecessary suffering caused by aortic dissection.
