Theodore Norman Howard-Gabel is mostly known for being the son of popular American actress Bryce Dallas Howard. His actress mother is widely recognized for playing the character of Gwen Stacy in the movie Spider-Man 3. Similarly, Theodore’s father Seth Gabel is also a famous actor.
Theodore is not the only child of Bryce and Seth. So, how many siblings does he have? How old is he? To know more about him and his life stay with us till the end and you will find your answers.
Let’s get started with the article.
Theodore Norman Howard-Gabel Childhood Days, Age, And Relatives
He was born on 16th February 2007 in Los Angeles. Theodore is currently 15 years of age. The meaning behind his name is the gift of god. As mentioned earlier, he is the son of popular actor and actress Seth Gabel and Bryce Dallas Howard.
Furthermore, Norman has a younger sister named Beatrice Jean Howard Gabel. She was born on 19th January 2012 and as of 2023, she is 10 years old.
Similarly, Howard is the grandson of Ron Howard and Cheryl Howard. His grandfather is a movie director whereas his grandmother is an actress and author. Likewise, his maternal aunts Jocelyn Howard and Paige Howard are actors but his uncle Reed Cross Howard is a golfer.
His Ethnicity: Also Know About His School
Talking about his ethnicity, Theodore is of mixed descent. His ancestry includes Jewish, English, Dutch, German, Scottish, Irish, and French.
Theodore is currently studying in a high school but unfortunately, his parents haven’t revealed where he goes for his education. We assume the reason behind their secrecy is the media because if the media knew where Norman goes to study, people would follow him and ask him good and bad questions that could affect his mental health.
Similarly, the duo hasn’t talked much about their daughter’s education either. Likewise, it doesn’t look like the couple is going to discuss their children’s education with the public anytime soon.
Theodore’s Birth Wasn’t Planned
Norman’s mom accidentally got pregnant with him while his mother and father were on their honeymoon. Seth and Bryce never planned on having a child so soon after their marriage, they wanted to start a family when they were in their thirties.
“I found out I was pregnant seven days after my wedding. I was on my honeymoon with my family. It’s a long story—but yes, I shared my honeymoon with my entire family. I have a heroic husband!.”
She further explained,
“After taking the pregnancy test, I held the paper strip while waiting for the telltale sign to appear and thought, ‘I have to be pregnant! I will not be okay if I am not pregnant”
It doesn’t look like Theodore’s parents regret their decision to have a child.
Bryce Dallas Howard Suffered From Postpartum Depression After Giving Birth To Theodore
After giving birth to Theodore, Bryce suffered from postpartum depression. Besides, she was perfectly fine before giving birth to her first son. After she suffered from depression, she described her experience as being in a black hole or having a nightmare.
The condition only got worst and Bryce felt like dying. She said “I’m going to die here, lying next to my newborn son. I am literally going to die tonight.” Similarly, during an interview, Theodore’s mother explained how she felt and even called herself a rotten mother,
” My house was a mess. I believed I was a terrible dog owner. I was certain I was an awful actress; I dreaded a film I was scheduled to shoot only a few weeks after the birth because I could barely focus enough to read the script. And worst of all, I definitely felt I was a rotten mother—not a bad one, a rotten one. Because the truth was, every time I looked at my son, I wanted to disappear.”
Thankfully, Theodore’s parents decided to take the help of an expert, and the doctor provided them with the option of a homeopathic treatment plan, and after some years Bryce got rid of her depression and has been living a healthy life ever since.

She further said,
