Clint Eastwood knows all too well what it is to be a Hollywood star. This is why he had a few relationships that brought him many children and grandchildren.
Clint Eastwood is the father of eight beautiful children born to several different women. With Maggie Johnson, his wife from 1953 to 1984, the actor had Alison and Kyle.
With Jacelyn Reeves, to whom he was never married, he welcomed Scott and Kathryn. With Roxanne Tunis he had Kimber, and with Frances Fischer he had Francesca.
Clint Eastwood’s second marriage was to Diana Ruiz, which also didn’t last. They were married from 1996 to 2014, and their relationship spawned Morgan.
The star also had a daughter when he was very young, which he never knew existed until he was older. For information, this girl, Laurie Murray, was given up for adoption by her mother, whose name has not been publicly revealed.
Laurie then didn’t come into Eastwood’s life until 30 years after she was born, when she sought out her biological parents and contacted Eastwood. He immediately became a loving father to Laurie, and father and daughter have remained close ever since.
Clint has calmed down and is the best of grandfathers
After the many relationships and the births of his children, Eastwood has finally settled down for good. He has been in a relationship with Christina Sandera, who is 33 years his junior, since 2015.
The couple met at the Mission Ranch hotel in California. Sandera was working as a hostess at the time. Eastwood and Sandera went public with their relationship just a year after Eastwood and Ruiz’s divorce, when Sandera walked the red carpet with the actor at the Oscars.
Eastwood’s daughter, Alison, said that now that Eastwood has settled down, the family is spending a lot more time together, and Eastwood has become a loving grandfather. She mentioned that they have dinner together and often joke with each other.
Alison also said that while she and her husband have a special bond with her sister’s son, Titan, Eastwood also has a special bond with the child. She then said that Eastwood and Titan look a lot alike.
When Eastwood isn’t caring for his kids and grandkids, he lives a quiet life with Sandera on her ranch in California. The house was falling apart, but Eastwood had it restored so he and Sandera could live in it.
The couple have since moved in full time and enjoy spending all their free time relaxing in their home. They also enjoy spending time with Eastwood’s family, including all of his children and grandchildren.
Eastwood mentioned that he also enjoys spending time flying his helicopter, saying:
“I love being up there. Up there, I’m just a number in the sky. »
The actor, who spent much of his youth on a film set, has now ditched the lights and cameras for a quieter existence where he can enjoy his down time as his career has become much less demanding.
While Alison mentioned her dad was the best dad to her and her siblings, another of Eastwood’s daughters, Francesca, also said the movie star was a great grandfather.
In fact, in 2021, Francesca posted a photo of Eastwood and her grandson, Titan, on Instagram. The image notably showed Titan and Eastwood smiling.
The photo was accompanied by the following caption: “Best dad. Best Grandpa,” followed by a little black heart. And the post was met with many adoring comments, most of which acknowledged how much Titan resembled his grandfather.
Other netizens simply said the photos were cute and it was nice to see Eastwood as a grandfather after years of seeing him as a Hollywood star. While others admired Eastwood’s still dashing looks.
Laurie, Eastwood’s daughter who was given up for adoption, also has a son named Lowell Tomas Murray. The young man also spoke to the Daily Mail about his relationship with his grandfather.
He said the actor was a great man and had been kind to his mother and himself over the years. He said :
“All I would say is he’s been a great father to my mum, and still great to me and my family every time we see him. »
Having eight kids can seem like a pretty big family. However, the Eastwoods expanded their family many times, with some of her children having had their own offspring.
So far, Eastwood has only five grandchildren, and he has a special relationship with each of them, the same way he has a special relationship with each of his children. While most of her grandchildren are already adults, her youngest grandchild is almost four years old.
Eastwood’s grandchildren are Lowell, 38; Clinton, 38; Graylen, 28; Kelsey, whose age is unknown; and Titan, three years old. Lowell and Kelsey are the children of Eastwood’s daughter, Laurie, who was given up for adoption without Eastwood’s knowledge.
Lowell rose to prominence as a contestant on Season 18 of “The Bachelorette.” However, he is a personal trainer and yoga teacher by trade. He currently resides in Seattle and revealed that he has his grandfather’s initials tattooed on his heart.
Graylen is the daughter of Kyle Eastwood, the actor’s son. It has often been said that she and Eastwood are very similar. She followed in her grandfather’s footsteps as an actress, producer and model.
Kelsey is the daughter of Laurie Murray and does not pursue a career in Hollywood. Indeed, she lives discreetly.
Clinton is also another of Eastwood’s more low-key grandchildren. Clinton also spends her life away from the spotlight and hasn’t pursued a career in Hollywood like many of Eastwood’s children and grandchildren.
As for Titan, as young as he is, has yet to make a name for himself in the world, but his Aunt Alison said he loved animals and was a remarkable kid despite his young age.
