In 1989, when she was just four years old, her family move from Los Angeles to Sacramento to pursue acting opportunities for her father and mother.

Her first significant role was as Amy in the 1994 movie Radioland Murders. She also appeared in Three Wishes and The Santa Clause that same year. She also starred as Joanne in an episode of Diagnosis Murder alongside her father.

She has starred in movies such as Snow Day, The Santa Clause 2 and All I Want for Christmas. In addition to acting, Allen has a degree in psychology with a minor in fashion design and has studied at Columbia University.

Katherine Kady Allen’s first marriage was to actor Alex Farragut. They were married from 1996 to 2001. The couple had a child named Olive Kadin (born in 1998).

Allen then married actor Nicholas Coombe on October 23, 2003. They remain married but have no children. In January 2009, Allen gave birth to her daughter, Poppy Pearl Coombe, in Los Angeles. She is name after the actor’s mother, Pearl Coombe.

Katherine Kady Allen, who is she?

Katherine Kady Allen has been with her boyfriend, actor Glenn Howerton (who also stars in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), since March of 2006.

She gave birth to a baby boy named Desmond Charles Coombe on December 24, 2013. Coombe is the first son of Kady and Nicholas.

In her interview with People magazine, she says that the baby’s name is after the late French director Claude Chabrol and his first movie, Adolescent.

Who is Katherine Allen dating?

katherine ‘kady’ allen is currently with her boyfriend, actor Glenn Howerton. Before him, she dated actor Alex Farragut. She was also married to him, and they had one child together.

He is famous for his lead role as Dr Quentin Costa on the ABC hit drama Body of Proof.

Kady’s dating history: Tim Allen’s daughter dated Alex Farragut from 1996 to 2001. She also dated actor Nicholas Coombe from 2003 to the present.


Which is actually kind of funny. She also married a man named Nicholas Coombe. There are a few Coombes in the US, and they’re mainly concentrated in New England around the greater Boston area, where George Farragut was from. I’m not sure what she thinks her connection to them is. I wonder if he knows that she thinks he’s some ancient family member or something?

When Allen was a teenager, she dated a man named Alex Farragut. They were in a relationship from 1996 to 2001. One day while they were out in public, some fans recognized her. “You’re Kady from Last Man Standing,” the man pointed out when she was being helped into a car by her friends. She “was mortified” and ran away with her friends. She says she was so embarrassed by the incident that she gave up acting for a few years.

Katherine Allen will be starring in the new movie Madison County with Jim Belushi and Kevin Costner as well as Last Man Standing in the TV series as Kady.

Allen is 6 feet (1.83 m) tall. She also has a sister named Tyler, who is 12 years younger than she is. She was born in 1987 and currently lives in New York.

According to her official site, she was ranked ninth in the “100 most beautiful people” list by People magazine in 2002. She was a “Teen Vogue”, and “Maxim” cover girl in 1998.

Allen is the founder of the charity Tim Allen’s Commitment to Kids, which helps find places for children to play while their parents work at meetings and on projects.

She is an avid cook and has an extensive recipe collection that she plans to publish.

Tim Allen’s daughter graduated from Sacramento Country Day School in 2000. In 2001, she won a full scholarship to Columbia University in New York City. She graduated from Columbia University with a degree in psychology and fashion design.

Allen became engaged to her boyfriend of 4 years, actor Glenn Howerton (who also stars in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), on December 31, 2011. They were marry on October 23, 2003.

She was previously in a relationship with her Last Man Standing co-star Christoph Sanders.

On January 8, 2009, she gave birth to her daughter Poppy Pearl Coombe. She is name after the actor’s mother, Pearl Coombe.

For whatever reason, it appears that Ms Allen believes she is related to Farragut / Armistead families and maybe other families found in New England and upstate NY.

It is undoubtedly true that all Armistead families are related to each other. The Armistead of New England and upstate NY can trace their ancestry back to William Airmsted and his wife Elizabeth, who came from England before 1680. However, I have not found any connection between the Armistead family lines in New England and upstate NY with Thomas Farragut, born in RI before 1640.

The connection with Allen’s family also appears to be bogus.
