While it may seem that Steven Spielberg has dedicated much of his life to creating some of the best films, including Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, and Jaws, he has also been a family man for some time.

The filmmaker and producer has been with his wife, Kate Capshaw, for nearly three decades, raising their blended family of seven kids. Here's a look at all of them.

KATE

Spielberg and Capshaw met on the set of "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," which the Hollywood icon directed and the actress starred in.

By then, Capshaw already had one daughter from her previous marriage, while Spielberg had one son with his then-wife, Amy Irving. It didn't take long for the two to realize they were attracted to each other.

"The prettiest thing that came out of that film [Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom] was my future wife. I met Kate, my leading lady. My leading lady is still my leading lady," he said.

She made her television debut in "Odd Man Out," and went on to appear in several other shows and films, including "The Practice" and "Grey's Anatomy."

THEO AND SASHA

Among the kids, Theo and Sasha have made their names known in the music industry with their band, Wardell. Theo shared how it started:

"I wrote a song that needed backup vocals, and I asked Sasha to do it. I was embarrassed because her voice was so much better than mine. At that point, I thought, There's something to this."

"Acting teaches you how to be human because you learn to talk, you learn to how to walk, you learn how to communicate and si it's just been a great thing for me to do, you know, ground myself."
