Homeless Ted Williams Meets Estranged Mom
It’s been a banner week for Ted Williams. The 53-year-old spent 20 years living on the streets in Columbus, Ohio, his life ruined by drugs and alcohol. But then a video of the silky-voiced homeless man went viral–and bam!–he’s got a job and has been reunited with his mother. On Thursday, Williams saw his 90-year-old mother for the first time in nearly two decades. “You always told me to pray, and I’ve been praying. This has been a dream, a dream and a prayer,” he told his mother Julia, who lives in New York. Williams was in New York to record a voiceover spot for Kraft Foods, make appearances on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” and “Today.” Of course, what was Ted’s mom, Julia, most concerned with? He accidentally told the world she was 92 when she’s actually 90.
