Some members of Freddie's family are occasionally mentioned during the series and some of them are seen never, some seen once, and some are recurring characters.
Benson Family Members Edit
Mrs. Benson/Marissa BensonEdit
Marissa Benson is Freddie's mom. She cares for Freddie a lot, like any mother would, but her parenting skills take caring to an alarming degree. She is shown to smother Freddie with affection and has an irrational fear that anything and everything is going to hurt him. Mrs. Benson is quite paranoid when it comes to her son's physical safety and health. She is quite unique as a mother. In iHurt Lewbert, she begins dating Lewbert the doorman. According to a photo Dan released a photo of the script then promptly deleted of an unaired scene from ISpeed Date. Marissa was married a man Leonard with the same last name as her maiden name.
See main Marissa Benson article for more details.
Mr. Benson/Leonard BensonEditMr. Benson/Leonard Benson is the father of Freddie Benson and the ex-husband of Mrs. Benson. In iChristmas, it is mentioned that Marissa Benson is single. It is unknown if he will appear on the show. It is possible he left because he couldn't stand her anymore (or vice versa), According to a photo Dan released a photo of the script then promptly deleted of an unaired scene from ISpeed Date. His name was revealed to be Leonard Benson, who shares the same last name as Freddie's mother Marissa. It is unaware of his character will ever appear on the show. It is also unaware if he is deceased or not as no mention of him has been made following ISpeed Date, where he was supposed to be mentioned. However that scene was deleted.
Freddie's Uncle is only mentioned in iHatch Chicks. Freddie says that his uncle is a carpenter and maybe he can help get the baby chick out of the wall. He was never named nor mentioned again.
Jennifer is Freddie´s aunt. She is never seen or heard, as she was only mentioned while Freddie argued with her over the phone in iMeet Fred. She apparently is a Fred fan, as she was calling Freddie names over the phone because he had said things that made Fred stop making videos.
Aunt Susan is Freddie's aunt only mentioned in iParty with Victorious and is awesome in Sam's perspective. She is mentioned when Ms. Benson came in to ask if Freddie could stay with Carly for a few days. Apparently, Susan Benson had a rash that spread to her thighs, and Mrs. Benson had to go take care of her.
Aunt Milly is Freddie's aunt mentioned in Carly's blog, who had an "emergency wedding" for her dogs. Freddie invited Carly to go with him.
Amanda is the cousin of Freddie. She was mentioned in iSaved Your Life and described as "icky", (by Carly), and "disgusting", (by Freddie). Dan mentions in his iSaved Your Life Fun Facts that Amanda may be seen in a future episode. Freddie's cousin, Amanda could be the one from "The Amanda Show"
Stephanie is the baby/first cousin once removed of Marissa Benson's cousin, and second cousin to Freddie. She appeared in iPie. She acted bubbly and giggly to everyone else, but to Freddie, she just had a "bored, blank expression" which, according to Carly and Freddie, looked exactly like the one Sam has in math class. At the end of the episode, Freddie finally gets Stephanie to laugh at him by throwing a pie in his own face. Stephanie is now 3 years old and Freddie has no trouble getting her to laugh at him. Her and her parents and 5 other sibling live about 2 hours away from from Marisa and Freddie in the city of South Hill, Seattle.
