He taught his son Finneas and daughter Billie to love music and in addition let them become homeschooled, so they had enough time to make their music experiments.

Patrick fell in love with acting in his young years, which he spent in Norwalk, Connecticut. He moved to Los Angeles, when decided to pursue acting as a career. There he resides till now with his wife Maggie and their two children.

Really, Maggie can be proud of what she’s doing, but she is even more proud of the family she created. In her interview to “Your Teen” magazine the woman told, that they don’t lead a typical “Hollywood” lifestyle.
Of course, each member of their family is a busy person, who visits auditions, takes part in new projects, but if they have some free evening, surely they gather around a dinner table and enjoy the meal in the circle of closest people.
By the way, Billie Eilish still lives with her parents in their cozy, but not big house in LA. The teen star resides with her parents in two-bedroom home.
