Maureen McCormick, well known for her role as Marcia Brady on the iconic television program “The Brady Bunch,” recently uploaded a video on Instagram that had admirers in tears. When she posted a video of herself dancing with her brother, the 66-year-old actress revealed a touching and private family moment.
Fans appreciated the peek into her personal life, with many commenting on how sweet it was to witness the actress share such a lovely and loving friendship with her brother, Denny McCormick. The two can be seen moving gently to a touching tune in the video.
Maureen’s Instagram post was designed to honor spending Thanksgiving with her adoring brother and husband. Fans in the comment section wished the family a happy Christmas and praised how adorable it is to watch the siblings together.
Her fans couldn’t get enough of the brother and sister, and many praised Maureen for her unwavering love of her special needs sibling. One fan even said that the affection in the video made her wish she had a brother.
While the two were swaying, Maureen asked her brother if he was enjoying the music, to which Denny replied enthusiastically, “Yes.” The actress also embraced him closely and sang to him, demonstrating their intimate relationship.
In an interview, Maureen discussed her family’s history with people with special needs. Her father and mother had spent their lives attempting to enhance the lives of individuals like their son, she stated.
He spent years educating and assisting persons with disabilities. Doctors suggested Maureen’s parents send her brother, Denny, in a facility where he would get specialized care. Rather, they looked after him themselves. As Maureen pointed out, it turned out to be the finest option: He is one of their greatest blessings and delights. He’s very pure, and his heart is incredible.
Maureen inherited her parents’ humanitarian instincts. After they died, she thought it was up to her to care for her brother. She applied for conservatorship and is now proud to report that she looks after Denny with the assistance of her husband.
Working with Denny also motivated her to get more engaged in the special needs community. The actress has collaborated with the Special Olympics to send a good message and encourage inclusion.
Maureen also mentioned that her brother enjoys the Special Olympics and that they used to watch some of the games together. Denny’s family is relieved to have him return after spending the lockdown apart from them.
Denny’s birthday was celebrated with Maureen in October. Maureen posted a video of them seated in what appears to be a restaurant, listening to Denny’s birthday surprise from musician Joe Newberry.
Maureen is seen in the video holding a phone in front of her brother, which contains a birthday greeting from Joe. The artist can be heard in the background crooning “Happy Birthday To You,” while Denny and his sister sing along.
Maureen appreciated everyone in the caption for the outpouring of birthday greetings for Denny. Maureen’s fans also flooded the comment area with well-wishes for Denny and Maureen.
Maureen also expressed her gratitude to Joe for the compassionate film, saying she would show it to him on a daily basis. She went on to state that she wanted to make every day Denny’s special day in order to guarantee he receives the affection he deserves.
Maureen McCormick and her husband, Michael Cummings, make certain that Denny’s every need is addressed, and they work hard to raise awareness and inclusion for those with special needs. Maureen’s collaboration with the Special Olympics has also aided her in spreading her message.
