When he eloped, he and his wife lived under the assumed name "Robert Conrad" so their parents wouldn't find them. They only told their parents where they were in May of 1952 when his wife found out she was having a baby. They were thrilled because they figured it would be too late for their parents to annul the marriage.

Quotes

Citation de Robert Conrad en novembre 1961: "Je pense qu'il y a très peu de gens vraiment, dont la conduite réfléchit défavorablement sur le reste de nous du royaumes mythique d'Hollywood. Il y a des hommes qui ont besoin de beaucoup de femmes afin de soutenir leurs égos, la moitié du temps ils ne se rappellent pas de leurs noms après. Mais j'ai un bon moi à commencer et je suis trop sensible pour un rapport rapide avec une dame et seul le sexe ne serait jamais assez pour moi. Le mariage est quelque chose qui va manière au delà de la chair. Chaque être humain à son propre besoin de sécurité...Il est grand espoir que quelqu'un se penche dessus...est grand de faire s'appuyer quelqu'un sur vous".
