Mel Gibson has recently been overshadowed to a great degree by Charlie Sheen as Hollywood’s biggest whack job. Sheen does more than just drink, after all.
The vehemently Catholic Gibson, though we’ve sometimes been forced to question this, now has a third grandchild. His daughter, Hannah, gave birth to a son. Friends described Gibson’s emotional reaction saying he was overjoyed.
Gibson’s divorce has not yet been finalized with his wife. His relationship with Oksana Grigorieva is complicated, as the actor recently plead guilty to misdemeanor battery charges.
Grigorieva fathered a daughter, Lucia with the Russian singer. Given the multiple restraining orders filed by Grigorieva protecting her and Lucia, it is not likely Gibson’s new grandson will find a playmate with any child of Grigorieva’s.
The media has yet to speculate on how Gibson’s internal family dynamics have played out since his recent court drama.
Although, it seems is wife, Robyn, has been more than gracious in her dealings with Gibson, particularly in allowing Gibson to be with the family during the birth.
She has cited her faith as a way in which to draw strength from the situation with her soon-to-be ex-husband. In thinking about this situation, it is easy to wonder why Gibson receives any attention regarding his own faith, given his behavior.
