Ryan O'Neal reunites with estranged daughter Tatum and grandchildren for the first time in 17 years
14th September 2020

Ryan O'Neal reunited with his estranged daughter Tatum and his grandchildren for the first time in 17 years.

The two showed off their bond as father and daughter in the 1973 movie, Paper Moon, but things only went downhill from there.


Tatum's son, Sean McEnroe shared a photo of the father and daughter's reunion as they spent a nice Sunday afternoon together.

"This is one of the most memorable photos of my life," Tatum's 32-year-old son shared on social media.

"The last time we were all together was at the 30-year Paper Moon Anniversary in 2003.

"I could cry tears of gratitude that everyone in this photo is still alive and that we were all able to come together again after so many years of hardship. The entire West Coast is burning, but if the O’Neals can reconcile, truly anything is possible."

He ended the post with the hashtags: reconciliation, forgiveness, wholesome, love and family.


For years, Ryan and Tatum have had a strained relationship with the two making headlines of a reconciliation before claiming they are estranged once more.

Despite their issues, Ryan was there to support his daughter when she was away in rehab.

After a bitter 20-year estrangement, the two claimed that the death of Ryan's ex, Farrah Fawcett, brought them together.

"She brought us back together," Tatum said back in 2010 after her father reached out to her.

"He told me he’s sorry. He’s all I have in terms of family, and I needed him in my life," she said.

"My dad was absolutely everything to me."


Tatum and Ryan's united front comes as the actor's son with late Farrah, Redmond, awaits trial after being charged with attempted murder back in 2018.

RadarOnline.com reported earlier this year that Redmond has battled with bipolar disorder and has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and antisocial personality disorder. He has also struggled with drug and alcohol abuse.

The 35-year-old former voice actor is facing six felony counts, including attempted murder, second-degree robbery, making criminal threats and other special allegations related to a week-long crime spree on May 2018 in the Venice and Palms area of southern California.
