Clint Eastwood’s children are, without a doubt, so proud of their legendary father. They were all present during the premiere of his 2018 movie, The Mule. This includes his daughter he didn’t know about for 34 years.
Eastwood is one of the most celebrated actors and filmmakers in Hollywood. But today, let’s talk more about his eight children.
In 1953, Clint Eastwood met a young U.C. Berkley student named Margaret Johnson. They got engaged and were set to tie the knot.
While he was waiting for his young girlfriend to graduate college, Eastwood spent some time in Seattle, Washington. It was there that he had a brief affair with an unidentified woman who became pregnant.
However, the Seattle woman put the baby up for adoption. The legendary actor had no idea that he was now a dad. The baby was named Laurie by her adoptive parents.
Fast forward to 34 years after, Laurie got curious as to who her birth parents were. She tracked down her birth certificate and found Clint Eastwood as her father. They reunited and have since maintained a great relationship with not only him but also all of his children.
Laurie made her official red carpet debut in December 2018 with all her seven siblings when they supported Eastwood at the premiere of his film The Mule.
Kimber Lynn Eastwood
Six years after his marriage with first wife, Maggie Johnson, Eastwood appeared on the TV show Rawhide. It was on this show that Eastwood met a stuntwoman and dancer named Roxanne Tunis. Eventually, Eastwood’s friendship with Tunis led to a 14-year affair.
They had a daughter named Kimber Lynn. While not a ton is known about her, we know that she’s a makeup artist and a film producer. She has also been married three times, most recently to producer and actor Shawn Midkiff.
Kyle was Eastwood’s first child with his first wife, Johnson.
When he was a child, he starred alongside Eastwood in the film Honkytonk Man. He had a bit more acting roles, but he’s more known today as a jazz bass musician and a composer. Kyle studied film at the University of Southern California for two years.
Music was prominent in the home of the Eastwoods. Kyle grew up listening to records by jazz legends such as Thelonious Monk, Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, and the Stan Kenton Big Band with his parents, who were both jazz lovers.
“When I told my father, film actor/director Clint Eastwood, I wanted to be a musician, he was happy about it,” Kyle said. “Music has always been important to my family. My parents gave me my taste in music and my love of jazz from an early age.”
To date, Kyle has already released nine studio albums. His most recent studio album was “Cinematic,” released in 2019.
Alison is the second child of Eastwood and Johnson. Through the years, she has had a stable career as an actress, director, producer, fashion model, and fashion designer.
She’s appeared in dozens of films, including Black and White, Friends & Lovers, I’ll Be Seeing You, Once Fallen and so much more. Most recently, she starred opposite her father in The Mule.
Alison also has her own clothing line, called the Eastwood Ranch Apparel. She also founded Eastwood Ranch Foundation, a non-profit animal welfare organization.
Scott is likely to be the most known among Clint Eastwood’s kids. He has been in several Hollywood movies like The Longest Ride, Suicide Squad, Pacific Rim: Uprising, and so much more. He even appeared in the 2015 music video for Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams.
His mother, Jacelyn Reeves, is one of Eastwood’s flings. She’s a Hawaiian-based stewardess who met Eastwood in the middle of his divorce with Johnson and live-in partnership with Sondra Locke.
Kathryn is Eastwood’s second child with Jacelyn Reeves. She has acted in a few projects, including Virus of the Dead, Jersey Boys, and Mr. and Mrs. Muse: Retribution.
But unlike her famous brother, Kathryn has been out of the limelight for the most part.
In the 1990s, Eastwood had a relationship with actress Frances Fisher. They had a daughter together, Francesca.
Just like her siblings, Francesca was into acting too. She had her first acting credit in 1995 in The Stars Fell on Henrietta. She also appeared in Eastwood’s 1999 movie True Crime.
However, Francesca didn’t act again until 2014’s Oh, You Pretty Things. She also appeared in Jersey Boys, Outlaws and Angels, Fargo, Twin Peaks, and so much more.
Morgan is the youngest among Clint Eastwood’s children. She was the only child to come from Eastwood’s second marriage to TV news anchor and actress, Dina Ruiz. She starred together with her mother in Mrs. Eastwood & Company. She also made several appearances in her father’s films Changeling and Million Dollar Baby.
In 2018, Morgan graduated from college, and her father and most of her siblings were present in the event.
Indeed, all of Clint Eastwood’s Children have grown to be as dedicated and determined as the iconic actor is, as they make a name for themselves in Hollywood. This only goes to show that the apple does not fall far from the tree.
