For a long time it has been known that Clint Eastwood is the father of seven children, but recently it has come to light that he has an unknown daughter who was put up for adoption.
Laurie Eastwood, the 64-year-old daughter of actor Clint Eastwood, recently appeared on the red carpet with her father and siblings at the premiere of “The Mule.”
It is assumed that Laurie is the product of an affair that Clint had in 1953 when he was married to his first wife, Maggie Johnson.

Clint’s eight children, his first wife, and his girlfriend accompanied him to the premiere of “The Mule” which he directs and stars in.
Besides Laurie, Clint’s children are Scott, Kimber Lynn, Kyle, Francesca, Morgan, Alison, and Kathryn.
The siblings seemed to all get along, taking pictures together and smiling. Morgan Eastwood even posted an Instagram story where she notes how rare it is for them to be all together in one place.
While Laurie is 64 years old, she has only known her father for a few decades, because she was adopted at birth and only searched for her birth parents 30 years ago.
HOW LAURIE FOUND CLINT
After finding out that Clint is her father Laurie decided to approach the actor. Although he had no prior knowledge of her existence, Clint embraced her as part of his family and the two quickly developed a close relationship.
Laurie is married with two children and lives in Lakewood, Washington. The first person to reveal her connection to Clint was Patrick McGilligan, a biographer.
Her adoptive parents raised her in Seattle, and she attended the University of Washington. Laurie is an avid golfer and shares this passion with her father.
