Actress Andie MacDowell walked the runway as a model before moving to the silver screen. She began her film career in the movie "Greystroke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes" and has appeared in several other productions, making her a household name.

The actress has three children: Rainey Qualley, Margaret Qualley, and Justin Qualley. Rainey and Margaret are actresses like their mother. However, Justin chose differently and lives a private life.

MEET JUSTIN QUALLEY

With a private Instagram account and six followers, Justin certainly doesn't want the public to know anything about his personal life. However, one clear aspect is that he has a strong bond with his family. From a young age, it appears he had a calming presence about him without even trying. His mother once said:

"I had a baby that year and my son made me feel even safer, for some reason."

She spoke about how it took courage to have Justin because she didn't know his father very well at the time. But, in the end, they got married, had more children together, and everything seemed to work out for a while.

Andie revealed that her son prefers to keep away from social media, writing in one of her Instagram posts that "he does not live a life online." However, she does not shy away from sharing tidbits about him and announced in that same post that Justin's girlfriend Nicolette was pregnant. She wrote:

"...I cannot wait to meet my granddaughter! 🥰 I am so extremely grateful for my three children and their father. My children are the best part of my life. I am constantly learning from them, they are my greatest teachers. My job, my work is wonderful but my children are my life. I cannot wait to meet my sweet new grandchild."

In another Instagram post, she shared a picture of her son, describing him as loving, full of life, and authentic. She said he is always there for those he loves and expressed pride in being his mom.

THE STORY OF JUSTIN'S PARENTS

Andie tied the knot with her first husband and former model, Paul Qualley, in 1986. However, their relationship only lasted a little over a decade, and the couple divorced in 2000 after having three kids. At 28 years old, Andie was on the brink of a career breakthrough when she became pregnant with Justin. She recalled:

"I wasn't planning on having children. I had a baby, [Justin], in the middle of trying to make it. But I'm so thankful that I did."

When she spoke about her split from Paul during an interview, Andie said it was for all the "usual reasons" couples divorce and did not divulge more information about their relationship. Not long after, she married Rhett DeCamp Hartzog on November 10, 2001. Sadly, Andie's second marriage met the same fate as the first one, and it ended with a divorce in 2004.

MEET ANDIE MACDOWELL'S DAUGHTERS

Justin has two younger sisters, Rainey and Margaret, who followed their mother's footsteps in the entertainment industry. Although the siblings grew up on a Montana ranch, the girls found their way back to Hollywood. Rainey said:

"For a long time, my mother wouldn't let me watch her movies, the grown-up ones at least."

Rainey and Margaret became interested in dancing and the performing arts at a young age. Margaret joined the American Ballet Theater and later pursued a modeling career in New York City. Meanwhile, Rainey went straight into acting.

In 2012, she appeared alongside her mother in the drama-comedy film "Mighty Fine." "At first, I was a little apprehensive. Like all mothers, my mother tends to be a bit overbearing and always gave her two cents, but she gave me my space," Rainey

Margaret eventually ventured into acting as well. After she got a starring role in HBO's "The Leftovers," she became an overnight sensation and is a recognized face in the industry. Margaret landed a role in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood."

Meanwhile, Rainey is also growing as an actress while making music, which she turned to as another artistic expression. She released her debut album in 2015 called "Turn Down the Lights."

As for the girls' relationship with their brother, not a lot is known, but they appear close; Margaret once posted a picture of her brother celebrating his birthday. In the photo, Justin gives his sister an affectionate kiss on her head. The caption reads:

"Happy birthday to my brother Bubba."

Andie's three kids are very important to her. Although she walked down the aisle again and married Rhett, the couple never had children together. In 2006, news about the actress's engagement to businessman Kevin Geagan surfaced on the internet. However, the pair never tied the knot.
