Donna Mills’ Partner Larry Gilman Once Planted a Vineyard for Her
Being a celebrity comes with many perks, one of them is an unlimited supply of money.
In fact, gift-giving amongst celebrities is never something ordinary, and it seems like the more expensive, the better. They have given everything from brand new luxury cars to renting out Staples center.
And in September 2015, another celebrity made headlines for the gift she got from her partner.
A-lister and General Hospital star Donna Mills shared to Closer Weekly that her partner, Larry Gilman, got her a romantic and over-the-top gift.
“Larry planted a vineyard for me last year. He is really such a good guy,” the actress revealed to the outlet.
She added the vineyard was only a year old, so while they had grapes, they were not wine grapes. But in another year or so and they would have it.
The couple also planned to bottle their wine in the coming years, made from their California grapes, and were planning to call it Ethereal.

Who Is Donna Mills’ Daughter Chloe Mills?
Although Mills and Gilman are not husband and wife, they are parents to Mills’ adopted daughter, Chloe Mills.
The actress adopted her daughter four days after she was born when she was 54 years old.
Mills told People in an interview that she had prioritized her career, but after reaching a certain level, she was missing out on motherhood and raising a child.
“By that time, I was 54, and people said, ‘You’re going to be so old [to] have a little toddler running around.’ I never felt that,” she shared. She added that she never felt older than the other mothers in their 20s.
The General Hospital actress even suggested it was probably better for people who wanted to focus on their career first to have a child later in their life.
According to The Sun, Mills’ daughter is a model and influencer with over 14.5k followers on Instagram. She is currently in a relationship with her boyfriend and musician, Bailey Joshua.
