He made his name as a member of one of TV's most adored families, and now Barry Williams is expanding his own "bunch."
Williams, 57, who played eldest son Greg Brady on The Brady Bunch, recently welcomed a baby girl with his girlfriend, Elizabeth Kennedy, according to RumorFix.com – which reports the new arrival's name is Samantha Rose.
It's the first child for Kennedy. Williams, who now runs The Greg Brady Project, has a 9-year-old son, Brandon Eric, from a previous relationship.

Sherwood Schwartz, who created two of the most popular sitcoms of the '60s and '70s, Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch, died Tuesday in Los Angeles of natural causes, surrounded by his family, a family member announced. He was 94.
Not only did Schwartz send the passengers and crew of the Minnow on a three-hour tour, one that lasted from 1964 to 1967 (and forever after in reruns), but he also wrote the Gilligan's theme song.
He did the same for the 1969-74 Brady Bunch, about a widow and a widower with a lot of kids – and a sagacious housekeeper.
And while critics threw bricks at both shows, the public lapped them up – possibly, at least in the case of The Brady Bunch, because he grounded the show in some type of reality.

My Fair Brady stars Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight have separated on what is the fifth anniversary of their wedding.
"After starting a relationship with what seemed to be irreconcilable differences, the couple has reached a period where those differences are no longer appreciated," their manager, Phil Viardo, said in a statement to the Web site Hollyscoop.com. "The decision was mutually reached after it became clear to both that some perspective was needed in order to assess their unique union."
This was Curry's first marriage and Knight's third. They had no children.

Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!
Maureen McCormick got famous playing the Brady Bunch's Little Miss Perfect. But in real life, the actress was sinking into depression and drug abuse.
Now, in her new book, Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice, she's opening up about her two abortions, her battle with cocaine addiction and her long history of clinical depression.
"[I was] hiding the reality of my life behind the unreal perfection of Marcia Brady ...," the actress, 52, writes. "No one suspected the fear that gnawed at me."
In the memoir, out Tuesday, the former Celebrity Fit Club champ also comes clean about her romance with her TV sibling Barry Williams, who played Greg Brady. They shared a kiss, but McCormick says, the "timing was never right for us."
She also chronicles her dates with Michael Jackson and Steve Martin – not to mention wild parties at the Playboy Mansion.

Where's Alice with a tension-deflating quip when you need her?
Christopher Knight says he's "hurt deeply" that his Brady Bunch mom, Florence Henderson, publicly called his marriage to reality-TV costar Adrianne Curry a mistake.
"It hurts me deeply that someone that I have loved and respected for so many years ... would discuss overtly negative personal opinions about my marriage in a public forum," the My Fair Brady star writes on his MySpace page. "I can only hope these recent comments are an aberration."
