Before their marriage, Pete Shaw had a child, David from a previous relationship. David was born in 1944 to Pete Shaw and Mercia Squires. After Pete decided to marry Angela Lansbury, his son, David, developed a fondness for her. It made their relationship easy. David would go on to become a successful producer.
He also became the president of Corymore Productions, a company his father started in 1987. Angela and Pete had their first child, Anthony together in 1952 in California. Anthony also has had a successful career in acting and production. His most notable works include The Spy Who Loved Me, A Bride Too Far, and The Jigsaw Man.

How Did Angela Lansbury Die?
On October 11, 2022, the news that Angela Lansbury died spread. It was then confirmed in a statement by her family. The statement reads partly, “The children of Dame Angela Lansbury are sad to announce that their mother died peacefully in her sleep at home in Los Angeles at 1:30 a.m. today, Tuesday, October 11, 2022, just five days shy of her 97th birthday.” There was not a chase of death provided.
Angela will be remembered for her sterling role as Jessica Fletcher in the Murder series. Not many know that she was the voice behind Disney’s Beauty and The Beast.
Angela Lansbury children are fond of their mother and while two of them have followed in her footsteps in the entertainment industry, Deidre did otherwise. Angela is survived by three grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.
