Harrison Ford got married twice before he finally met a woman that completed him. Her name is Calista Flockhart, and they had an extended courtship period before they eventually got married — here's everything we know about their relationship.


Paramount+ has revealed that Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford will be cast in "1932," which is supposed to be the latest installment of the Dutton origin story.

No additional detail has been revealed besides the fact that the new story will usher in a new generation of the Duttons while exploring the 20th century, ravaged as it was by droughts, the great depression, and pandemics.

The movie is a sequel to "1883," the one-off prequel that featured Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. It was adapted from "Yellowstone."

An addictive show that has attracted an average of 11 million total viewers and won nominations, including the Screen Actors Guild Award and Producers Guild Awards nominations.

The first time Harrison Ford ran into Calista was at the 2002 Golden Globes, and they hit it off quickly. The actor had been 60 when he fell in love with Calista, and in 2009, he spoke about their first meeting.

He revealed that his biggest surprise was that he was still capable of having a long-term commitment with another person.

Their first date was in 2002, but it was also attended by James Marsden, who was there at Calista's behest. They had a nice dinner and returned to Ford's home to have drinks and listen to music until the actor signaled Marsden to make himself scarce.

The couple was completely taken with each other, and by 2009, they were engaged. Then, in 2010, they decided to spend the rest of their lives together and got married in New Mexico, where the talented actor had been filming “Cowboys and Aliens.”


The ceremony was held at the governor’s estate in Santa Fe and was performed by Governor Bill Richards and was officiated by New Mexico’s Chief Justice, Charles W. Daniels.

After the wedding, Harrison became stepfather to Calista’s son, whom she adopted at birth, while she became stepmom to the four kids he had from previous relationships. Their marriage is bravely standing the test of time, and the pair’s love is still blowing hot.

Throughout his years of acting, the talented Harrison Ford became a father four times. His first kid was named Ben Ford, and the second was called Willard Ford, while the third and fourth were named Malcolm Ford and Georgia Ford, respectively.

They are all products of his first two marriages which represented his initial attempts at love before he finally settled.

He tied the knot for the first time in 1964 with Mary Marquardt, and together, they welcomed his first and second kids: Ben and Willard.

Ben was born in 1967, while his brother arrived two years later in 1969, a decade before Harrison and his wife decided to go their separate ways.

The actor got married again in 1983 to Hollywood Screenwriter Melissa Mathison with whom he had a son named Malcolm in 1987 and a daughter called Georgia in 1990.

They ended the union in 2004, and Melissa passed on ten years later following her battle with cancer. After the marriage ended, Harrison stayed away from the altar for years until he met Calista at that event.
