Charmed and Picket Fences star Holly Marie Combs welcomed her second son Riley Edward Donoho back in October 2006, and has been leading a quiet life since, raising Riley and big brother Finley Arthur, 4, away from the bright lights of Hollywood. Therefore, we were pleasantly surprised to hear from Holly earlier today. She sent a short note dismissing the speculation and rumors a few Charmed fans have stirred up as to why she’s kept private, and enclosed some photos of her youngest son. These are the first images she’s chosen to make public.
There has been a lot of speculation about Riley since I decided to lead a more private and normal life. I have not released a picture of him because I thought it unnecessary for a stay-at-home mom withnothing to promote but breastfeeding! Because [CBB] has always been so kind and respectful to me, as well as some of my friends, I wanted to send this in an effort to kill all the rumors about my perfectly healthy, really cute (in my biased opinion!) baby boy, who is 18 months old now.
