Chuck Norris Hugs His Grandkids in Rare Photo after He Focused On Family Life on His Ranch
At 82, Chuck Norris is the favorite grandfather of his grandchildren!
Now the action star focuses on his family and life on his ranch.
After years of making action movies, Chuck Norris, probably one of the most famous people alive, has settled into a new role. His granddaughter, Greta Norris, recently shared a photo of her with her granddad. It’s clear to see that Chuck loves his granddaughter immensely, judging by his broad smile.
The action movie star could be seen holding Greta tightly in a hug, and she was smiling just as widely as her beloved granddad. Greta’s followers adored the snapshot of the two Norrises, commenting on how touching it is to see the action star just enjoying his family’s company.
One follower simply commented, “good ol’ chuck,” while others showed their appreciation for the actor by sending heart emojis. Chuck’s white smile flashed through his trademark red beard, and his granddaughter captioned the post:
“fancy seeing you here .”
Greta has shown her appreciation for her grandfather on many occasions. For his birthday in 2020, she posted a photo of the actor holding her as a baby.
In the caption, Greta gushed about how much she appreciates him and everything he does for her. She thanked him for always believing in her and for his constant encouragement.
Chuck Norris Enjoys Life on the Ranch
Chuck has become a family man after retiring from the film industry. Over the years, the action movie star had five children, Mike Norris, Dina Norris, Eric Norris, Dakota Alan Norris, and Danilee Kelly Norris. The actor was married twice and had his second daughter, Dina, in an extramarital relationship.
After an extensive and unbelievably successful career, Chuck suddenly vanished off the big screen.
These days, he divides most of his time between his spring water bottling company, CForce Water, and tending to his ranch, Lone Wolf Ranch, in Grimes County. Norris enjoys working on the large piece of land he owns with his second wife, Gena O’Kelley, and the other members of his family often join them on the ranch.
Chuck’s two youngest kids, Dakota and Danilee, live with their mom and dad on the ranch, and the martial arts legend has kitted out the property with everything his family could want. Of course, he has a whole slew of memorabilia from his films and experiences over the years, including old military equipment.
As a skilled martial artist, Chuck has his own training space where he stays in shape and trains a new generation of fighters. The action star teaches everyone, from young children to older martial arts enthusiasts. He also helps less-privileged children through martial arts by acting as a mentor.
Chuck Norris Takes Care of His Wife
After an extensive and unbelievably successful career, Chuck suddenly vanished off the big screen. The actor opened up about the main reason he left showbusiness and said he had a responsibility to care for his wife, Gena, who had fallen ill before he retired from film. Gena had a bad reaction to an injection before an MRI scan. She commented:
“Within hours after the first jab I felt like my whole body was on fire — as if acid had been passed through it. I just lay in bed on an IV for five months and had to have round-the-clock nursing care. Chuck slept beside me on the couch and never left. I prayed that I would live to raise my children.”
Chuck gave up his entire career to look after his wife and children. At first, they didn’t know what was wrong or what would happen to Gena in the long term. The actor was numb with worry, and he was determined to help her through the terrible pain. He was willing to spend everything he had on a cure. He shared:
“I’ve given up my film career to concentrate on Gena, my whole life right now is about keeping her alive. I believe this issue is so important.”
Gena has stated that she believes she reacted to the gadolinium used in the injection. She and Chuck have gone on to sue the companies that had a hand in manufacturing the medication. Luckily, Gena managed to recuperate. She received stem cell treatment, which seems to have helped her recover.
