Their fourteen long marriage which produced two kids, Chelsy and Cody, was over with the aid of a court order in 1995. The marriage ended due to his constant work. 

Cody was adopted before their separation in 1991.

Now, the children are grown-ups. There are not so many details on the career of Wil and Owen, but his only daughter Chelsy is already following in the footsteps of her parents as an actress. 

She is known for her work in Quantum Leap: Memphis Meldoy. It’s no doubt that acting runs in the family. 

Chelsy dated Prince Harry on and off for seven years. However, they split in 2011, as the pressures of dating a royal became too much. She was invited to the royal wedding, along with another one of Harry’s exes, Cressida Bonas.

Finding balance

Learning from his previous marriage, Bakula is more concerned about being available for his family. 

When he met his second wife, the American actor knew that some career sacrifices had to be made for him to spend time with his family.

Despite the busy schedule, he files home from New Orleans to spend the weekend with Chelsea, Wil, and Owen.

Trying to combine work and personal life is not easy, but the NCIS: New Orleans star and his wife make it work.

We wish the family all the best!
