We will get into the reason for his parents’ split later on. Nevertheless, it is to be noted that the Out of Time actor left Linda while she was pregnant with Dalton; for now, let us just tell you that he had a very good reason for leaving too.

Further adding about their relationship, the 34-year-old’s parents met in the late ’70s. Moreover, they tied the knot in 1982 but in 1989, they called it quits.

Yes, if we see it through only one angle, he’s the couple’s only kid. In the course of their relationship, they did not have any other children. However, after the unfortunate breakup, both Linda and Bruce moved on with their respective partners. Eventually, they had other children too. So, although he never had his siblings, Dalton Abbott grew up surrounded by his younger half-siblings.

How Many Half-Siblings Does Dalton Have?

He has two half-siblings – a sister and a brother. Both of them are younger than him.

Following Linda’s split with Abbott, Hamilton moved on with the renowned filmmaker, James Cameron. The pair began dating in 1991 and their kid, Josephine Archer Cameron was born on 15th February 1993. She grew up alongside Dalton with their mother in LA. The siblings presumably share a much closer bond.

Moreover, he has a younger brother from his father’s side, Tyler Quinlan. He is the son of Abbott and his lover, Kathleen Quinlan. He was born on 17th October 1990.

As mentioned earlier, the two actors went on separate paths in 1989. It was Bruce Abbott who thought it was time to leave Hamilton behind and move on. Thus, he left her – lonely and pregnant.

If you only hear this side of the story, you’d hate Abbott’s guts. But the real fans know that he did what he did for his own good. Apparently, the actress wasn’t treating him right in the relationship. She had undiagnosed bipolar disorder, in turn, making Abbott’s life a living hell.

Meanwhile, Linda also publically apologized to her ex-husband back in 2004 for all the time she mentioned that he had left her alone. During the apology, she revealed the horrible behavior she had towards the father of her son. She said that she was “very physical at times” and used to throw glasses of water on his face to “make him suffer”.

Abbott’s mother said,

I think that after a while my dark dark place began to swallow him up whole. He lived in fear of me. He left me saying I was a bully.

Moreover, she was diagnosed with manic depression years after the birth of her younger daughter. At present, she’s managing her symptoms well; Hamilton is on medication that helps her balance her mood swings.
