Ludo Faulborn is just a young kid. Yet, his name has already begun coming up in the media. Why? Well, it is all because of his celebrity parents. His mother Kelli Marie Giddish is an American television stage and film actress. She played NYPD Detective Amanda Rollins in the television series Law & Order: SVU for 11 years, from 2011 to 2022.
Kelli also portrayed Diana Henry on the soap opera All My Children. Ludo’s father is Lawrence Faulborn, but it is all about his mother here.
How much do you know about this celebrity child? Let’s take a look.
Who Is His Mother?
Born Kelli Marie Giddish in April 1980, Kelli is an American television, stage, and film actress. She is most famous for portraying Detective Amanda Rollins in the NBC crime-drama TV series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Born in Cumming, Georgia, she is the daughter of Charles Giddish and Nita Giddish. She also has a brother named Eli Giddish. It was her paternal grandfather that inspired her to go into acting. He was the one to take her to the Fox Theatre in Atlanta.
Of course, her maternal grandmother was also very supportive of her interests. During her childhood in Georgia, Kelli attended Forsyth Central High School. She was involved with a local drama teacher Yatesy Harvey. He was a friend of her mother and ran a community theater. That is where she began her acting career performing in plays.
Speaking about her mentor, Giddish said, “She just inspired a fierce curiosity and very high standards of what acting was and how much dedication it took and rehearsal and we would do plays every night”.
During her childhood, the young actress won several accolades, including State Literary Champion for Girls Dramatic Interpretation. Kelli graduated from the University of Evansville in Indiana, where she majored in theater performance. Following college graduation, Kelli moved to New York City to pursue her acting career.
One year after arriving in NYC, she appeared in a Broadway play with Farrah Fawcett. In 2005, she gained national recognition for portraying Diana Henry on the soap opera All My Children. Two years later, in 2007, she parted ways in a mutual decision with the production.
In January 2007, she guest starred on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in the episode Outsider. At that point, she portrayed a rape victim by the name of Kara Bawson.
Several years later, she would join the cast for the 13th season. She made her debut as Detective Amanda Rollins in the season 13 premiere, Scorched Earth. In that episode, her character worked alongside Detective Olivia Benson, portrayed by Mariska Hargitay.
Speaking about her entrance into the show, she said, “My character is in complete awe of Olivia. Amanda’s really eager to get in there because she knows her stuff and is really eager to learn. She has come from Atlanta and there was a ceiling there, so she’s come up to New York”.
Kelli would remain 11 years with the television show, appearing for the last time in Episode 9 of Season 24, titled, And a Trauma in a Pear Tree. In that episode, her character, Rollins, married ADA Dominick Carisi Jr. and resigned from the Special Victims Unit to accept an offer to teach at Fordham University.
Kelli got married to Lawrence Faulborn on June 20, 2015. The wedding took place in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. In October of the same year, she gave birth to their first child Ludo.
In November 2018, Giddish gave birth to her second son, Charlie Faulborn. Both of her pregnancies were written into the television series Law and Order.
Sadly, in 2018, the couple got divorced right after the birth of their second child. Then, in November 2021, she got married again, this time to Beau Richards.
So, how much do you know about Ludo Faulborn? He is an American celebrity kid famous for being the son of Kelli Giddish. His mother, American actress Kelli is famous for playing unique characters. Yet, most people recognize her as Detective Amanda Collins in Law and Order.
Because of his celebrity parents, Ludo has been attracting quite a lot of media attention. He was born on October 5, 2015, somewhere in the United States of America. His exact birthplace remains unknown.
Ludo holds American nationality, and he is of white ethnic background. His father, Lawrence Faulborn, is an American businessman.
He also has a younger brother, Charlie Ralph Faulborn, born in November 2018. Charlie is also a subject of curiosity, the same as his older brother.
But Kelli doesn’t want her children to be in the limelight.
After his mother got married for the second time, this time to Beau Richards, Ludo, and his brother have been living happily with Kelli and their step-father.
As for her second marriage, Kelli wrote on Instagram, saying, “Happy beyond words to have met and married my love. You are my light and the best supreme step-father Ludo and Charlie could ask for”.
Is He On Social Media?
Ludo is just seven years old as of January 2023. For that simple reason, he cannot be on social media. Instagram and other platforms have an age limit. For example, Instagram doesn’t allow people under the age of 12 years.
So, no, Ludo is not active on social media. His mother, however, is. American actress Kelli Giddish has a profile with more than 500k followers on social media.
There, she posts updates about her life, including her second husband and children. While she tries hard to keep her sons away from the limelight, you might see a picture of them on her Instagram page.
Being too young to be on social media means you are too young to work as well. Ludo is enjoying his careless childhood. He has yet to finish school, go to university, and begin his career path.
In the meantime, his mother Kelli is responsible for bringing money to the household. The American actress has a net worth of more than $8 million. That should be enough to provide her sons Ludo and Charlie Ralph Faulborn with a comfortable life.
