A heartbreaking new report claims that Robin Williams and his third wife, Susan Schneider, had hoped to welcome a child together one day. So sad.

Robin Williams, 63, and his wife, Susan Schneider, 50, did not have a chance to expand their family before the actor’s untimely death. A new report claims that Susan was eager to have a child with her husband, despite how difficult that may be due to their age. However, that same report claims that Robin may have been hesitant for a fourth child — and for good reason.

Robin Williams & Susan Schneider Were Hoping For A Baby

Sadly, it seems like Robin’s wife, Susan, will not be able to see her wish of having a child with her husband come true.

Even though she was at the ripe age of 50, Susan was very eager to have Robin’s baby.

“It was always a dream for Susan to start a family with Robin,” an insider told Radar Online. “It would have been nearly impossible for Susan to get pregnant because of her age, 50, but that didn’t stop her from hoping it could happen. They could have used a surrogate or adopted.”

However, Robin was hesitant to have more children, despite his wife’s wishes. Robin already had three children — Zak, 31, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 22 — from two previous marriages, and he was concerned about his issues with addiction and mental illness.

“He had already raised three children. There was also major hesitation because of his history of depression,” the same insider revealed.

Sadly, no matter what Robin and Susan would have decided, their chance to expand their family is now gone forever.

Susan Is In ‘Seclusion’ & Blaming Herself For Robin’s Suicide

Robin’s wife disappeared without a trace after his body was discovered by an assistant on Monday morning, Aug. 11, inside their family home.

Unfortunately, Radar‘s source claims that Susan has been in hiding because she partially blames herself for her husband’s decision to take his own life.

“No one is blaming her. Susan shouldn’t blame herself.”

So, so sad. We are still not over the loss of Robin, so we can only imagine what his family and friends are going through during this time. Our thoughts remain with them, especially Robin’s wife and three children.
