Newman and Woodward, who tied the knot in 1958, had three daughters: Elinor "Nell" Teresa, Melissa "Lissy" Stewart, and Claire "Clea" Olivia.

There is no doubt that Nell, Lissy, and Clea have accomplished remarkable things.

Since Newman's death in 2008, Woodward has avoided the spotlight, and their daughters ferociously secure the privacy she has battled to keep up.

With the loving memories of a cheerful youth behind them, where are Nell, Lissy, and Clea now?

Former child actress Nell, who was born in 1959, lives in California. She is now happily married to Gary Irving, a photographer and humanitarian.

She is the founder of the successful pet food production company called Newman’s Own Organics. Much the same as her legendary father, the environmentalist is also involved with many children’s welfare charities.

Newman and Woodward’s middle child, Lissy, who was born in 1961, is an artist and singer. She also entered the world of showbiz in her younger years.

Presently wedded to middle-school teacher Raphael “Raphe” Elkind, she still lives in the same home previously owned by her parents. The couple has two children, Peter and Henry.

Lissy is likewise engaged with philanthropy work. She concentrated on women’s welfare and has even dedicated time to volunteering at a women’s prison in Connecticut.

Meanwhile, Clea, the most youthful daughter of Newman and Woodward, who was born in 1965, is associated with children’s charity work.

She is the ambassador of the charity founded by her dad in 1988 called SeriousFun Children’s Network, which aims to give exciting activity camps for kids with severe illnesses and terminal diagnoses.

Clea is married to philanthropist Kurt Soderlund, the CEO of Safe Water Network; a charity co-founded by Clea’s father.

Safe Water Network gives clean drinking water to districts of India and Africa in desperate need.

There is no doubt that Nell, Lissy, and Clea have accomplished remarkable things, just like their acclaimed parents.
