Christopher Cody Rogers Biography, Kenny Rogers Son Christopher Cody Rogers Wiki
Christopher Cody Rogers is the son of Kenny Rogers and Marianne Gordon. Christopher Cody Rogers is a director and actor also renown for being the son of Legendary country music singer Kenny Rogers. Kenny Rogers died on Friday at the age of 81 from natural causes. He had a music career that spanned six decades, 24 No. 1 hits, three Grammy Awards, and six Country Music Awards.
Kenny Rogers had 5 children from his 5 marriages. They include Christopher Cody Rogers, Jordan Edward Rogers, Justin Charles Rogers, Carole Rogers, and Kenny Rogers Jr.
In his later years, Rogers expressed remorse for sacrificing family time in order to achieve that success, especially time spent with sons Kenny Jr. and Christopher Cody. He told the Boot in 2013, “I missed an important part of their life. I look back on my career and I say, ‘Suppose I hadn’t been selfish? Suppose I had been the father I should have been, would I be here today?’ There’s a point where you have to say, ‘It doesn’t matter what I did.’”
Kenny Rogers expressed a desire to change his priorities when his second son was born. Christopher Cody was born on December 4, 1981, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles three weeks before his expected due date. The infant suffered from a dangerous respiratory disorder called hyaline membrane disease but managed to recover.
The March 1982 edition of People magazine featured Rogers, wife Marianne Gordon, and baby Christopher on the cover. The article noted that after Christopher arrived, Rogers celebrated the occasion by passing out Hershey candy bars “with all the letters except HE blocked out.”
Roger said that he wished to be more present in Christopher’s life than he had been for his two older children, Carole Lynne and Kenny Jr. “As you try to get ahead, it’s too easy to think that these kids are still going to be kids tomorrow and that once you get your current project done, you’ll spend some time with them,” Rogers said. ” The next thing you know the child is grown up and you can’t relate to him at all.”
But as Rogers revealed decades later, his musical career continued to keep him away even after Christopher arrived. He told the Independent in 2006 that his marriage to Marianne slowly crumbled after their son was born, eventually leading to their 1993 divorce. “Everything was fine until our son Christopher was born, but I wouldn’t want him to take any responsibility for this,” Rogers explained, “because that’s when Marianne stopped touring with me and stayed home to take care of him, and then when I came home from touring or doing a tennis tournament, I found that our lifestyles were clashing.”
