Iconic actor and director Clint Eastwood turned 92 on May 31, 2022. The Academy Award winner has captivated audiences worldwide with his riveting movies and his complicated romantic relationships over the last six decades.
Born on May 31, 1930, in San Francisco, California, United States, Clint worked several jobs before becoming an actor. He once taught swimming at a military academy, became a fireman, and also a gas station attendant, among others.
He had his breakthrough playing Rowdy Yates in the series "Rawhide." Director Sergio Leone noticed his exceptional performance in the series, leading the filmmaker to hire the actor for three films.

WHO IS CLINT EASTWOOD'S WIFE?
These films included the 1966 film "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly," which became one of Times magazine's 100 greatest films of all time and cemented Clint's reputation as a brilliant actor.
The actor's relationship history is not as exceptional, however. He has been divorced twice and is currently unmarried. He also allegedly fathered many children whose mothers are not known publicly.
He first tied the knot with Maggie Johnson in 1953. The former couple met on a blind date. When he and Maggie were still dating, Clint got another woman pregnant.

The unknown woman, whom he met in a theater group in Seattle, gave birth to Clint's first child, daughter Laurie, two months before Clint exchanged wedding vows with Maggie.
During their marriage, Clint allegedly had an affair with stuntwoman Roxanne Tunis. Clint and Roxanne, who reportedly kept their affair for 14 years, shared a daughter, Kimber, born in 1964.
Meanwhile, Clint and Maggie welcomed their first child, Kyle, in 1968. Their second child came into their lives in 1972, the same year the actor met actress Sondra Locke, who would become another woman in his life.

Sondra was married to sculptor Gordon Anderson. Clint and Sondra lived together in the home he shared with Maggie, who had moved to Pebble Beach at this point.
Nine years later, the actor divorced Maggie. Meanwhile, Clint also had affairs with other women during his relationship with Sondra. His affair with flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves produces a son, Scott, and a daughter, Kathryn.
Clint and Sondra eventually parted ways in 1989. He went on to have dalliances with more women, including actress Frances Fisher, with whom he shares daughter, Francesca.
