This could cause problems for his four sons from a previous marriage, as the trust for their family could be changed to provide for the child, according to sources.  In 2013, they asked to modify the three-decades-old family trust to give them more control over assets, which was approved by The Massachusetts Supreme Court.

Sources have also said that Ricki became a great source of companionship and happiness for Robert after the death of his wife Myra in 2011. So is he just trying to help her out, or is he REALLY the baby’s father?
