Soap star Don Diamont (Bill Spencer, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) shares his life’s journey with fans and how his seven sons helped shape who he is today.
“The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) has written his first autobiography, entitled “My Seven Sons and How We Raised Each Other.” As the title implies, the actor details his life as a father of seven sons and how they’ve become closer than ever through numerous trials and tribulations, including marriage, divorce, the death of Don’s sister, and life with second wife, Cindy.
The book also details how life as a blended family differs from what families were like decades prior while retaining numerous familial rules and firsts: dates, cars, missing curfew, talking back to parents, grounding, broken hearts, tears and laugher, and of course love. “My Seven Sons” even dabbles into Diamont’s life growing up in Los Angeles during his “Zoolander” phase, a time where he modeled in both Paris and LA.
In honor of the scheduled release of the book on Tuesday, May 29, at bookstores everywhere, Diamont will be making appearances in New York, New Jersey and California for those who’d like to take home a signed copy. The actor will also appear on CBS’ “The Talk.”

Oh, hell no! ‘My Seven Sons’ is a fresh and fantastic surprise-one that delivers big laughs, wondrous adventures, and so much triumph over tragedy that it will leave you breathless.
