Cassidy played Keith Partridge in “The Partridge Family,” an ABC series about a singing widow and her family who toured in a colorful old school bus.

The couple has a 23-year-old son named Beau Devin Cassidy. David Cassidy also has a 26-year-old daughter from another relationship, Katie Cassidy. She is a singer and actor in her own right, and she actually recorded one of her father’s biggest hits, “I Think I Love You.”
