Dean Martin With Wife Jeanne & Baby Gina

Dean Martin married Jeanne Biegger on September 1, 1949. They were married for 24 years until February 14, 1973. They had 3 children together: Dean Paul, Ricci & Gina. Jeanne even appeared as herself on an episode of I Love Lucy in 1955. The former married couple would remain close up to Dino's death in 1995. I hope you enjoy these three pictures of Dino and Jeanna together. The baby in the one photo is Gina.

Oh I love this post, they look so good together. I'm so pleased they remained friends after the divorce, such a shame it didn't work out for them.

Another reason why I love Dino so... great post dear Keith!

Maria Jensen said...

I love the last one :) It's so sweet and tender moment, it's almost like he is letting all his guard down, and just being cool, sweet and just a family person :)
I mean, i love Dean on stage, but there are very few times when we can see him like this :) Or at least that's what i think!

Its nice to see the loving father and husband..People seem to forget he was so many things...

Amy said...

aww how sweet, wonder if his daughter looks like him now that she's all grown up?

Keith said...

Hey Dustjacket. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed this post. I know what you mean. It is nice that they were friends until the end.

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks. I'm happy you enjoyed my post on Dino.

Keith said...

Hey Maria. Thanks for commenting. I know totally what you mean. We see pictures all the time of Dino on stage, of him being the personality we all know and love. It's great to see these more private moments with his family. We see a different side of him.

Keith said...

Hey Gingey. Thanks. So true. Dino was more than just an entertainer. He was a man who loved his family tremendously.

Keith said...

Hey Amy. Thanks. I'm not sure. I've only seen what a couple of his kids look like now. I can't remember if I've ever seen Gina older or not.

JFK Jean said...

Wow, Jeanne looks perfect for "I Love Lucy", like she could have played Lucy's younger and more even more spoiled sister haha

Planet Mondo said...

Amazing - this is the first time I've seen Dino's wife

KIRAFASHION said...

I love the women from before...she is so beautiful! They all have so much glamour!

Your blog is fantastic! Makes me dream :)

Keith said...

Hey JFK. Thanks. Man, you are so right about that. :-)

Keith said...

Hey Dave. I'm glad I gave you a chance to see what she looks like. I thought I had posted a pic of her in the past, but I'm not sure now.

Keith said...

Hey Kira. Thanks. Glad you liked these photos. She was beautiful. I'm so happy you enjoy my blog. Cheers!

Rachel Follett said...

Hey Dapper. Thanks. I love that photo too. I had a great day. I hope you are doing well. Take care.

Keith said...

Hey Mrs. M, That's so cool. I love photos like this. They do remind me of old photos of my family. I've got some men in my family during that era who wore their hair the same way.

Keith said...

Hey Rachel. Thanks. I'm glad that I could teach you some things you didn't know. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Clare. Thanks. Glad you enjoyed seeing these family photos of Dino.

Jessica Cangiano said...

How heart-warmingly sweet! So often we saw Dean in the public spotlight, amongst other celebs or crowds, it's refreshing to be reminded of the family side of this multi-talented man.

Wishing you a fantastic Wednesday, Keith!
♥ Jessica

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks. I'm glad you liked these photos. I do too. I agree with you. We always see Dino with his pallies out in the spotlight. It's cool to see him at home with the wife and kids. I love seeing pictures like these. Hope you're having a nice week. Cheers!

Kelly Gannon said...

The first band I seen live, in concert when I was a kid Keith, was Dean Martin's kids' band....Dino,Desi and Billy.

Keith said...

Hey Kelly. Wow. That's so cool. I like their music.
