The Untold Truth Of Clint Eastwood's Children

There's no question that Clint Eastwood is one of the biggest and most respected names in Hollywood. Since the 1960s, the actor and director has been a quintessential movie star. His early works included Westerns and action roles that fully embodied old-school American masculinity, including the TV series Rawhide and movie Man With No Name

As the decades passed, Eastwood's classic face and stone-cold demeanor kept him in business. His early to mid-2000s movies spanned multiple genres; he even explored comedy. His squinted eyes and furrowed brow awarded the California native many accolades and acknowledgments, including several Academy Awards and Golden Globes. To this day, Eastwood is still active on-camera and getting much deserved praise for it.

Through all his career wins and endeavors, the actor also had a busy personal life. Eastwood had two marriages and several complicated relationships that led to eight talented children, all of whom look just like the legend.

Clint Eastwood's first marriage resulted in two kids

Clint Eastwood has a total of eight kids by six different women. He met his first wife, Maggie Johnson, in 1953, when he was 23 years old, per ABC News. At the time, Johnson was a student at UC Berkeley, according to Wide Open Country.

Johnson gave birth to the couple's first child, Kyle Eastwood, in 1968. Kyle would later become an actor, but he became more known in Hollywood as a composer and recorded musician. His credits include the films Honkytonk Man, Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino, and Invictus.

Johnson and Eastwood welcomed their second child, Alison Eastwood, in 1972; she would be Eastwood's last child with Johnson before the two divorced in 1978. Alison appeared in the 2018 Clint-directed film, The Mule. She also founded the Eastwood Ranch Foundation to "help save animals from high kill shelters in Southern California and beyond." 

Clint Eastwood had kids outside of the marriage too

During his engagement to Maggie Johnson, Clint Eastwood had an affair with an unidentified woman, who became pregnant. The woman gave the baby girl up for adoption, and she didn't discover who her father was until decades later, per Hollywood Life. Laurie Murray, now Laurie Eastwood, finally tracked down her father when she was in her 30s, and they now have a "close" relationship, according to The Daily Mail.

Eastwood also had another extra-marital child, Kimber Eastwood, in 1964. Kimber's mother was a dancer and stuntwoman named Roxanne Tunis. Despite his marriage, Eastwood's relationship with Tunis lasted a total of 14 years, (via ABC News). Kimber now works as a prominent producer and make-up artist in Hollywood and has many credits for her work in film, including The Mule.

Eastwood also lived with another woman, Sondra Locke, during and after his marriage to Maggie Johnson. During that time, he had an affair with flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves, who gave birth to Scott Eastwood in 1986. Scott has appeared in a few of his father's films, even sporting the famous Eastwood squint and furrow. He's also starred in Texas Chainsaw 3D, The Longest Ride, Suicide Fame, and Walk of Fame. His latest film, Cash Truck, is currently in post-production with a 2021 expected release date, per IMDb.

The last three Eastwood children were all girls

Clint Eastwood and Jacelyn Reeves had a second child, Kathryn Ann Eastwood, in 1988. Similar to her brother Scott Eastwood, Kathryn changed her last name from Reeves to Eastwood, per Wide Open Country. She also went on to work in film as an actress in a few titles, including Jersey Boys and Virus of the Dead.

In 1989, Eastwood and Sondra Locke split up and he began a relationship with actress Frances Fisher. In 1993, Fisher gave birth to Francesca Eastwood. No surprise here — Francesca also went into acting. She has 22 movie credits, according to her IMDb profile, including the TV series Fargo and movie Final Girl. She was also crowned Miss Golden Globe in 2013.

The last and youngest Eastwood sibling is Morgan Eastwood, born in 1996. Morgan is the child of Eastwood and his second wife, Dina Eastwood; the pair were married from 1996 to 2014, per ABC News. Morgan starred alongside her mother and sister Francesca in the E! reality series, Mrs. Eastwood & Company. Outside of that brief reality star gig, Morgan sticks to sporadic modeling gigs and being an Eastwood socialite.

Clint Eastwood's lineage is a proven testament to "it's all in the genes." Though his love life has definitely been complicated, this big family seems to get along well. According to Inside Edition, all eight of the Eastwood kids finally appeared on the red carpet together for the first time in 2018.
