6 Things You Didn't Know About Ken Todd
Behind every glamorous woman there's an equally dashing man. Get to know #RHOBH's restaurateur a bit better.
Ever since Lisa Vanderpump let us into her world on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills back in 2010, Ken Todd has proven to be the type of Househusband who doesn't mind getting into the mix. The British restaurateur has been married to Lisa since 1982, and together they have two kids, Pandora and Max. But, you probably already knew that. However, if you want a deeper look at Ken's life, we've rounded up some other facts about Lisa's dashing older man. After you take a closer look at the 70-year-old mogul, he'll no longer be such an international man of mystery.
1. He Has a Son from His First Marriage

Sure, Lisa is Ken's one true love, but before they wed in 1982, he previously walked down the aisle with Pamela Todd. It was a marriage that Ken has previously said "didn't last very long," but before they went their separate ways they had a son, Warren, who was born in 1966.

Ken has said that he got sole custody of Warren following their divorce and that he raised him on his own from the age of 2. Warren, a British entrepreneur, later married Lisa's pal, Sue Vanner, an actress known for her role in the James Bond classic The Spy Who Loved Me. Sue and Warren have a 21-year-old son, Ryan. "Warren is very much his father's son — ambitious, incredibly family oriented, and someone to be proud of," Lisa wrote of her stepson in a RHOBH cast blog in 2011 after Warren was featured in an episode.
2. He Manages James Kennedy
In December, the DJ confirmed on the Vanderpump Rules After Show that Ken has helped him launch his music career. James even thanked Ken for his support when he dropped his Pump Sessions album earlier this month.
3. No, He Was Never a Soccer Player
If you search for "Ken Todd" on the internet, you might find articles that refer to him as a former soccer player. But that's another guy, as his lovely wife Lisa confirmed to us. "No he chases puppies, not balls," Lisa told The Daily Dish. "That's another Ken Todd." If you still don't believe us, there is a Wikipedia page that does offer a little more insight into that other Ken, who is now 58 and played as a midfielder on several teams including Wolverhampton Wanderers in the '70s.
4. He's an Animal Lover
Much like his wife, Ken loves four-legged creatures and often uses social media to passionately shine a light on animals-rights causes, including the the Yulin Dog Meat Festival.
Plus, he looks pretty adorable hanging out with the family's beloved pets.
5. He Wasn't Always Rich and Famous
Ken back in the day.
Lisa revealed in that same 2011 cast blog that Ken worked a number of jobs while raising his son before eventually making a name for himself in the restaurant business. "He worked many jobs laboring, night jobs, anything to provide for his son, and, with the help of his mother, he raised an educated, well-mannered young man," Lisa wrote. "Life was hard at the beginning. But with sheer tenacity and some sort of innovative business sense, he created a life for his family (including his parents) that otherwise they wouldn't have had."
6. He's a Fashionable Dude
A very mod Ken.
Judging by this throwback photo, Ken has always had an eye for style. Not many guys can pull of a turtleneck like that. Must be a British thing.
