He is the son of Jerry Mathers and his second wife, Rhonda Gehring, but their union did not last. Jerry filed divorce papers against Rhonda in 1997 after he found out that she was having extra-marital affairs behind his back. Noah was 19 at the time of his parent’s divorce.

Noah’s Father was a Child Actor
When the talk is about the greatest child actors of all time, then Noah Mathers’s dad, Jerry Mathers, deserves mention. Born on January 2nd, 1948, the movie veteran debuted in TV commercials at the tender age of two. During the early 50s, he scored roles in productions like This Is My Love, The Trouble with Harry, The Seven Little Foys, That Certain Feeling, The Deep Six, Men of the Fighting Lad, and more.
However, Jerry hit his big break on the set of the situational comedy Leave It to Beaver, where he essayed the role of the curious and naïve Theodore “Beaver” Cleaver in 1957. The then up-and-coming star was just nine when he had his breakthrough and went on to give the sitcom six long years, which culminated in a total of 234 episodes.
While on the set of Leave It to Beaver, Jerry did not leave out his academics as he had teachers who came to teach him on set. However, after the show eventually wrapped up in 1963, Noah Mathers’s dad took a long hiatus from acting to achieve his high school graduation. That was when he founded the musical band known as Beaver and the Trappers.
Jerry also recorded success outside the entertainment industry by enlisting with the US Air Force Reserve and served from 1966 to 1972, following which he went to study philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley. He later worked in a bank as a commercial loan officer and in real estate as an agent.
Jerry made his comeback to acting in 1978 and participated in the play Boeing on stage. When his Leave it to Beaver cast reunited to film Still the Beaver, he was there to reprise his role, and that particular reunion birthed The New Leave It To Beaver. Jerry remained active through the 90s, recording a plethora of appearances in movies and TV shows.
