Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw's children are career-driven, and most of them joined the entertainment industry. Here's a look at all seven Spielberg siblings.


Steven Spielberg's daughter, Sasha, walked down the aisle to marry restaurateur Keith McNally's son, Harry McNally, in May 2022.

The couple had a Jewish ceremony that included traditions, such as the groom stomping on glass and the congregation happily yelling "Mazel tov!"

The singer-actress and her husband both wore white, as seen in a clip as they danced to "Got to be Real." Other hit songs also played during the celebration, including Dua Lipa's "One Kiss" and Diana Ross's "Upside Down." Sasha is one of the seven kids Steven shares with his wife, Kate Capshaw.


The award-winning director and his wife's children are a mix of biological, adopted, and stepchildren. Although not all blood-related, their family has grown close to one another.

Jessica Capshaw is the eldest among the siblings. She is Kate's daughter from her marriage with Robert Capshaw, which ended in 1980. Of all the kids, Jessica is most known in the entertainment industry for her acting stint in "Grey's Anatomy."


She is also a proud mom-of-four and loving wife to Christopher Gavigan, an entrepreneur who co-founded The Honest Company.

The second eldest in the family is Max Spielberg, Steven's only child from his marriage with Amy Irving. Max is also in show business but works behind the scenes as a director, writer, and producer. He is married to Valerie Spielberg, a beauty blogger.

Theo Spielberg is the couple's eldest adopted child, taken by Kate before marrying the director. Steven adopted Theo after marrying Kate.

Like Max, he works behind the scenes as a talent associate. Apart from film and television, Theo is also involved in the music scene and once formed a band with his sister, Sasha. Theo said:

“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.”

Sasha is Steven and Kate's first biological daughter together. She followed her eldest sister, Jessica, as an actress and appeared in "The Post," "Indiana Jones," and "The Terminal."


Apart from her band with Max, she pursued a solo music career and went by the stage name Buzzy Lee. Since tying the knot, it is unsure if Sasha will follow a different career or continue her path in the music industry.

Like his other siblings, Steven and Kate's second biological child, Sawyer Spielberg, pursued an acting career. According to Sawyer, his mother significantly influenced his life in many ways. He said:

“My mom is the reason why I'm an actor. She's the reason for everything. She's been such an incredible mother and grandmother to my daughter. She's got that incredible sensitivity and wisdom that she's passed down.”


Mikaela Spielberg is the couple's second adopted child, who came when they were already together. Unlike her siblings, Mikaela chose a career path not many would take. In 2020, she revealed she would be making solo adult films.

Steven and Kate's youngest and third biological child is Destry Allyn Spielberg. Although she appeared on screen with roles in "Rosie" and "Mass Hysteria," she also pursued a modeling career and walked the runway for Dolce and Gabbana.



Despite being a successful director with many opportunities lined up, Steven always puts his family before his work. "I will always drop everything and go meet those needs," he said. "They always need mom and dad, and I am either there with my kids, or my wife is, but they're never without us."

Steven and Kate met when she starred in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" in 1984, alongside Harrison Ford.

It wasn't until years later that they reunited and fell in love. In 1991, they tied the knot and started growing their family. Steven remains active in the entertainment industry and is known for his work in "Jurassic Park" and "Jaws," among many others.
