25 years after the world said goodbye to legendary actor Dean Martin, his beloved daughter Deana Martin continues to keep his memory alive.

Deana followed in her father’s steps

Like most celebrity kids, Deana didn’t fall too far from the ‘Martin’ tree. She also dived into the world of music and movies like her father.

She is famous for her role in ‘Young Billy Young’ and her appearance in ‘The Dean Martin Show.’ Some of her hit songs include ‘Girl of the Month Club,’ ‘Beyond the Sea,’ and many more.

Keeping her father’s memory alive

Although it has been more than a decade since Deana’s dad passed away, his daughter is doing all that she can to make sure his legacy thrives in our hearts.

While speaking to Closer Weekly, the 71-year-old revealed how she keeps her father’s memory alive with mundane rituals.

“I record all of his music, and I do all of my shows, and I have his sense of humor. So that’s how I keep him alive — just with respect.”

She also credited her father for her remarkable talent saying that she learned from the best.

A proud father

Dean was proud dad of the eight children he had from three marriages. From his first wife, Elizabeth Anne McDonald, he had four children: Craig Martin, Claudia Martin, Gail Martin, and Deana Martin.

His second marriage produced three children: Dean Paul Martin, Ricci Martin, and Gina Martin. While his third marriage produced no biological kids, Dean adopted his wife’s daughter, Sasha.

Luckily, some of them followed in their father’s footsteps. Ricci Martin was a successful musician, while Dean Paul Martin was famous for his role in ‘Backfire.’

Having kids that can carry on your legacy is what any parent would want. Dean Martin, no doubt, has the best set of kids!
