Rance Howard, who is Ron Howard’s father, had to tell him how babies are made when he was just 5 years old. Why? Well, we’ve got the story! It largely had to do with the fact that Ron’s mother was pregnant with his brother, Clint, and Rance had to somehow explain the concept of where babies come from and how they’re made.
“As [Ron] would tell an interviewer from Playboy, he had known about male and female anatomy since the age of 5, when his mother was pregnant with [his brother, actor] Clint. Ronny asked the tough questions; Rance let out a deep sigh, then sat down and drew realistic diagrams to explain how babies are made,” says Ron Howard biographer Beverly Gray, author of Ron Howard: From Mayberry to the Moon.

Ron actually made an announcement himself about the new book being released called The Boys, noting that, “When our dad passed in 2017, Clint and I began reflecting upon our lives and realized that while our childhoods seemed normal, they were anything but.”
The Boys is expected to be released on October 12th, all about the Howard boys and their childhood growing up.
