Ronald Prescott Reagan

Ronald Prescott Reagan (born May 20, 1958), usually known as Ron Reagan, is the son of former President of the United States Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan. His wife, Doria, is a clinical psychologist; as of 2004 they had no children.[1][2] Reagan is a self-professed atheist, though he sometimes attends Buddhist services with his wife. [3] Unlike his father, Reagan is a liberal, as seen in his speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention.[4]

Ballet dancing

Time magazine noted: "It is widely known that Ron's parents have not managed to see a single ballet performance of their son, who is clearly very good, having been selected to the Joffrey second company, and is their son nonetheless. Ron talks of his parents with much affection. But these absences are strange and go back a ways." Ronald and Nancy Reagan went to see their son dance at the Lisner Auditorium on Monday, May 18, 1981. The elder Reagan commented in his White House diary that his son Ron's performance reminded him of Fred Astaire.[5]

Nevertheless, he denied rumors of homosexuality, pointing to the fact that he's been married to his wife for 23 years. "Pretty good for a gay guy," Reagan laughed as he responded to the reporter.
