Andre never married , although he was reportedly quite the ladies man, and he did have one daughter, Robin Christensen Roussimoff, who was born in 1979.
Before he passed away in his sleep at 46 due to congestive heart failure, Andre the Giant (born André René Roussimoff) was known as the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” due to his colossal 7’4″, 520-pound frame.

During Andre’s teen years, he had 68 teeth . He grew 6 more as a adult. A normal adult mouth has 32 teeth . His condition, known as acromegaly, often produces double rows of teeth among those who suffer from the growth hormone disorder as well as problems with teeth spacing due to excessive jaw bone growth.
Sure, his real name was spelled ” André ” but I’m not sure if he was ever billed as ” André the Giant ” while wrestling in the US, Japan or Canada. He was supposedly 7 ft 4 in. tall, but if you look at the photos of him, he was more likely 6’11 or 7 ft tall. Andre wore a size 22 US shoe.

Reiner says filmmakers had to be creative: André was too heavy to ride a horse , so he was hung from wires. Reiner and cast members Billy Crystal, Robin Wright and Cary Elwes recall that André was in pain during the production.
