Now, he has three other adult children remaining, whose names are Danny, Erin, and Jamie.

Danny also went to the military, he too is a Marine veteran having served time in the Iraq War. Erin (Bridget Moynahan) is an assistant district attorney in Manhattan who prosecutes many of the criminals Danny busts.
