On October 15, 2023, the beloved actress from “Three’s Company” passed away, and she had her son at her side during her final moments. Suzanne Somers’ longtime publicist, R. Couri Hay, issued a statement revealing that the actress had passed away “peacefully at home” and was surrounded by her devoted husband Alan, her son Bruce, and her immediate family.
Bruce Somers Jr., the son of the acclaimed American actress and author Suzanne Somers, was born in November 1965 during Suzanne’s first marriage to a man named Bruce Somers. Bruce Jr.’s early life was marked by a significant event – a serious car accident that left him with substantial medical expenses.
In an effort to alleviate the financial burden of her son’s medical treatment, Suzanne Somers made a headline-grabbing decision. In 1980, she posed for a controversial nude pictorial in Playboy magazine, drawing both admiration and criticism for her choice.
Suzanne Somers’ unwavering commitment to her son and her bold actions to support him during his challenging times captured public attention. The strong bond between mother and son became a prominent aspect of her public image.
In the years that followed, Bruce Somers Jr. largely maintained a private life, avoiding the glare of the public eye. Consequently, limited information is available about his personal life, his pursuits, and his current circumstances. The car accident and its associated medical expenses were undoubtedly significant challenges for him, and Suzanne Somers’ actions to support him served as a testament to a mother’s love and determination to ensure the well-being of her child.
