We hear Cameron talk about his lovely family on the hit daytime show and has even shared videos and photos of family trips, music sessions, etc. On Tuesday, December 15th, the 51 year old former All My Children star welcomes his 14-year old daughter, Leila to the set. She will join Cameron in the kitchen to teach the viewers how to make sugar cookies.

Mathison is married to his longtime love, Vanessa and the couple have two children together. Their son Lucas was born in 2003 and their daughter Leila was born in 2006. Cameron recently congratulated his son for getting into Loyola Marymount. The happy family posed for a photo in front of their home with LMU balloons to celebrate.

This isn’t the first time Cameron’s family makes an appearance on Home & Family. In October, his wife Vanessa was in the kitchen with her husband on set. “Best day ever😌Please watch @homeandfamilytv tomorrow to see my amazing wife light up the screen!! She cooks and tells embarrassing stories about me… what’s better than that?” said Cameron.
