Clint Eastwood is a legendary actor and director and a proud father of eight kids. Some of his children followed in his footsteps in the entertainment industry and made a name for themselves.
Cint Eastwood turns 92 on May 31, 2022, yet there's no stopping the Hollywood legend from slowing down his work.
Eastwood built his name in the entertainment industry as a prolific actor, director, and producer, known for his many award-winning and income-generating productions, including "Mystic River," "Letters from Iwo Jima," "Million Dollar Baby," and "American Sniper."

Unlike other Hollywood personalities, Eastwood wasn't pinned down to one genre. He tried to succeed in many directions, such as romance, action, musicals, war, and his most notable one, Western.
Of all his work, five competed in the Cannes Festival, which in itself is a significant achievement for any actor-director in Hollywood. At 91, Eastwood released "Cry Macho" in 2021, which streamed on HBO Max.
Despite being busy with his career for decades, Eastwood still lived a fruitful life outside work. He had relationships that made him a doting dad of eight.

CLINT EASTWOOD'S KIDS: ALL WE KNOW ABOUT THE STAR'S EIGHT CHILDREN
Eastwood became a first-time father in 1954. However, he did not know about his child until she found him decades later. His eldest daughter, Laurie Murray, was given up for adoption shortly after birth.
A Seattle couple took Murray under their wing, but the interest in finding her birth parents lingered until her older years. A friend of Murray said:
"When she found her biological parents, she reached out to her mother, but she didn't want to be contacted. It obviously came as a great shock to Laurie, but I believe that Clint was extremely receptive to her and the situation."
Eastwood had another daughter in 1964, Kimber Lynn, born out of an affair with Roxanne Tunis. The actor was, at that time, married to his first wife, Maggie Johnson. Kimber followed her father's footsteps in the entertainment industry but mainly worked behind the scenes.
In 1968, Eastwood welcomed his first son, Kyle, with Johnson. Kyle pursued a music career as a bassist and formed a band, Kyle Eastwood Quartet. He released his first album in 1998, "From There to Here," followed by eight more in the next few years.
Four years after Kyle's birth, Johnson gave birth to her second child with Eastwood, Alison. She pursued a career in the entertainment industry but worked as an actress. Some of her works include "The Mule" and "Absolute Power." Alison also helps run the Eastwood Ranch, an animal foundation.

One of Eastwood's most successful children in the same industry, Scott, was born in 1986. Although Eastwood was married to Sondra Locke at that time, he had an extramarital affair with flight attendant Jaclyn Reeves that resulted in a child.
Scott is known for his acting credits in "Flags of Our Fathers," "Gran Torino," "Invictus," "Pacific Rim: Uprising," "Suicide Squad," and "The Fate of the Furious."
In 1988, Reeves welcomed another child with Eastwood, Kathryn, who has lived a private life. Kathryn previously made on-screen appearances but relatively stays out of the spotlight.
After his divorce from Locke, Eastwood welcomed another daughter, Francesca, with his then-girlfriend, Frances Fisher. Francesca is also an actress with appearances in "Old" and "Jersey Boys."
Eastwood's youngest child, Morgan, came in 1996 while married to Dina Ruiz. Although she tried her luck in acting, appearing in "Million Dollar Baby" and "Changeling," she did not expand her horizons in front of the camera.
