Who is Emilio Estevez Father Martin Sheen?
Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estévez born on August 3, 1940), known professionally as Martin Sheen, is an American actor.
Sheen was born in Dayton, Ohio, on August 3, 1940, to Mary-Ann (née Phelan) and Francisco Estévez Martínez.
During birth, Sheen’s left arm was crushed by forceps, giving him limited lateral movement of that arm (Erb’s palsy) and resulting in the arm being three inches (7.6 cm) shorter than his right.
Both of Sheen’s parents were immigrants; his mother was Irish, from Borrisokane, County Tipperary, and his father, who was Spanish, was born in Salceda de Caselas, Galicia.
After moving to Dayton in the 1930s, his father was a factory worker/machinery inspector at the National Cash Register Company.
Sheen grew up on Brown Street in the South Park neighborhood, the seventh of ten children (nine boys and a girl).
Due to his father’s work, the family lived on the island of Bermuda on St. John’s Road, Pembroke Parish, where five of his brothers were born. Martin was the first child to be born in Dayton, Ohio, after the family returned from Bermuda.
Sheen contracted polio as a child and had to remain bedridden for a year. His doctor’s treatment using Sister Kenny’s method helped him regain use of his legs.
Sheen married Janet Templeton on December 23, 1961, and they have three sons and a daughter, all of whom are actors: Emilio, Ramón, Carlos, and Renée. Carlos, however, decided to change his name when he began acting, calling himself Charlie Sheen after making the decision to anglicize his first name and take his surname from his father’s stage name, although he was already known only as Charlie throughout his elementary school years.
