Traci is the eldest daughter, born in 1963. Traci’s father is Helen’s ex-husband Kenneth Weate. While Helen was very busy working when her children were small, Traci has said that she was always a very dedicated mother. These days, Traci owns a company called Simples, which sells plant-based tonics. The company operates with the goal of making “nourishment and healing of wild plants readily available to all people,” according to her Instagram account. As for life in the limelight, her only film credit comes from 1989’s A Nightmare on Drug Street, which Traci directed. She is married and has one daughter, Lily.

Lily is an aspiring musician and hopes to follow in her famous grandmother’s footsteps. She once spoke about her grandma saying, “She’s incredibly loving. She’s strong-willed, smart, she’s got a big personality and she just is who she is and she doesn’t apologize.” Through Lily, fans of the late Helen Reddy gain some insight into the star’s life as a grandma. She is described as both a loving grandmother, and a grandmother who loved that position. Lily operates based on the advice she received from her famous grandmother: “Don’t give up, be stubborn if you need to, chase your passion and allow your uniqueness to be powerful and beautiful. And put family first.”
