Now: He's a dad and a businessman. "I always wanted kids," says Atkins, 48, who was married for 18 years to Playboy centerfold Lynne Barron – they split in 2003 – and has two children, Grant, 23, and Brittney, 22. He also designs luxury backyards and is getting back into acting (he completed Exodus Fall and Forget Me Not. in 2009). Fun fact: A fan of nudism since filming Lagoon, he has since posed for Playgirl.
