Howie's third child is his second daughter, Riley Mandel. Born in 1992, Riley seems to be the most private of the star's children. Considering the fact that she has stayed out of the spotlight for most of her life, there is little available information on her.

However, Howie and wife Terry have shared a few select tidbits of information about their daughter's life on social media.

One example of this is when Howie shared a picture in 2019 of Riley at her wedding, standing by the alter with her husband. "This happened. My baby girl," he captioned the heartwarming snap.

Another instance of this was when her mother posted a pic of her and Riley in 2018 at the latter's doctorate graduation. "So proud of Dr. Riley Mandel who also won an award for academic excellence!! Gray graduation!! So proud!!" she captioned the loving image.

In her photos from the day, it was also revealed that Riley attended Chapman University, a private college in Orange, Calif., and graduated in 2018 with a doctorate in physical therapy.

She may not have pursued fame, but it's clear that Riley has done well forging her own path through life.

With all three of his children successfully making their own way in the world, Howie clearly has a lot to be proud of on the home front.
