NEW TRAGEDY FOR REGIS PHILBIN AS “HERO” SON DIES

Six years after The National ENQUIRER helped REGIS PHILBIN reconcile with his troubled son, Danny Philbin tragically died from natural causes at age 49.

“He was a hero to all of us,” a friend said of Danny’s Nov. 7 passing.

Danny was born to Regis and first wife Catherine with a spinal cord defect that led to the amputation of his legs.

He’d go on to earn top college degrees while working in public affairs.

But Danny had a strained relationship with his famous dad.

His then-wife appealed to Regis for help through The ENQUIRER in 2008 – with the couple borrowing money to buy groceries.

Regis quickly provided his son with some financial relief, assuring The ENQUIRER: “Yes, he’s all set.”

More important, Regis was in regular contact with Danny in his son’s final years – and a family friend confirmed to The ENQUIRER that Regis attended Danny’s funeral.
