About Andrea Paolo Mario Dotti
Dotti met Hepburn on a cruise and fell in love with her on a trip visiting Greek ruins. He married her on 18 January 1969. Hepburn stated at the time that she and Dotti expected to have children together and she would consequently end her acting career to become an "Italian housewife." Dotti had one child with Hepburn, named Luca, born in 1970.
Dotti and Hepburn were married for 13 years. However, many of those marital years were marked by Dotti's frequent affairs with younger women. Hepburn stayed with Dotti until she decided that their son was mature enough to cope with the divorce. Despite their acrimonious divorce, Hepburn stayed in contact with Dotti during her lifetime for the benefit of their child.
In October 2007, Dotti died of complications from a colonoscopy.
