Melanie Griffith's love for her three children does not need to be proved. Here are some of her best throwback pictures with Alexander Bauer, Dakota Johnson, and Stella Banderas.


Like any other parent active on social media, Melanie Griffith also likes to share photos of her children. And since they are all grown up, she sometimes enjoys a trip down memory lane.

In May 2020, Griffith shared a picture of herself with Alexander and Dakota having fun in the pool. In her caption, she explained that Stella was in her belly when the photo was snapped.

Additionally, Griffith shared three adorable throwback photos with Dakota, Alexander, and Stella, all from 1998. Needless to say, the images have all won her fans' hearts.

Despite Griffith's fame in Hollywood, she feels most fulfilled by her own successful family. An insider close to the actress told Closer Weekly in 2019 that she's really proud of her children.


According to the source, Griffith shares a very close bond with all three of her children. However, in everyday life, the actress keeps a safe distance from Alexander, Dakota, and Stella. The source noted:

"She lets them live their own lives … make their own mistakes."

From the moment Alexander, her first child, was born, Griffith made parenting her top priority. During this time, the star was married to her second husband, Steven Bauer, whom she divorced in 1989.


Griffith reunited with her first husband, Don Johnson, after calling it quits with Bauer. Griffith and Johnson, who were married for less than one year in 1976, married for the second time in 1989.

In October, the couple gave birth to their daughter, Dakota. However, the relationship between the "Milk Money" actress and "Knives Out" actor ultimately ended in 1996.

The actress said she wasn't looking when pressed about what she liked in a guy.


In the same year, Griffith married Antonio Banderas and became parents to their daughter, Stella, in September 1996. The two were inseparable for almost two decades before they split up in 2015.

Griffith and Banderas first met on the set of "Two Much" in 1996 and immediately became romantically involved. According to them, they separated amicably and peacefully.

A source told Closer Weekly in 2019 that although Griffith is entirely at ease with the single life these days, she would not say no if someone came knocking at her door in love.

Griffith opened up about love during the Farrah Fawcett Foundation's Tex-Mex Fiesta in Beverly Hills in September 2019. The actress said she wasn't looking when pressed about what she liked in a guy.
