August Manning Weatherly is Michael Weatherly's eldest son, who lives a private life despite his father's "NCIS" fame.

Although he doesn't make his private life known to the public, his mother sometimes shares photos of him. Among them, one stood out for August's strong resemblance to Michael.

"He is the spitting image of his father, Michael Weatherly," one fan said. "Very handsome." Several fans were also stunned by August's good looks. Here's more about him.

AUGUST MANNING WEATHERLY IS MICHAEL MANNING'S FIRST SON

August Weatherly was born on January 10, 1996, to Michael and his then-wife, actress Amelia Heinle, who tied the knot in February 1995. Michael met his first wife while working on the soap opera "Loving," where he brought life to the character Cooper Alden.

Weatherly then met Bojana Jankovic in 2007 and was instantly captivated by her beauty. Born in Serbia and now a resident and citizen of the United States, Jankovic is a physician.

Meanwhile, Heinle, who played the role of Steffi Brewster, was only 19 at that time. The duo fell in love instantly and didn't take long to start a romantic relationship. In 1995, they tied the knot and began a life together as husband and wife.

Sadly, their relationship only lasted as long as it began. Following the show, Michael found difficulty in finding a job. He recalled:

"I was 27 and could barely take care of myself, but I had to feed people and put a roof over their heads."

August's parents eventually divorced in 1997, after Michael's work took time away from their family. "It's a tough thing for a kid," he said. “Especially when one of your parents is on the other side of the country.

Despite the divorce, the actor tried to stay close to his son while making ends meet. Admittedly, he didn't see August as much as he wanted but felt happy to connect with him.

AUGUST MANNING WEATHERLY REALIZED HIS FATHER WAS NEVER "THE GUY"

Michael Weatherly first appeared in "Dark Angel" in 2000 as Logan Cale before going on to make an impression as the cheeky Anthony DiNozzo in "NCIS" from 2003-2016. He then headed the cast of his own show, "Bull" as Dr. Jason Bull in 2017, a series about a trial scientist whose expertise lies in picking juries.

Once, August questioned his father's supporting character roles and asked when he would be "the guy." Michael said. "The weird thing about my career at this point, by and large, is I’ve perfected the number two slot."

AUGUST MANNING WEATHERLY'S PARENTS' LIVES AFTER THEIR DIVORCE

Following August's parents' divorce, his father found love again and got engaged to actress Jessica Alba on her 20th birthday in 2000, despite their 13-year age gap. Unfortunately, the relationship did not last long, and the couple ended it amicably in 2003.

Weatherly then met Bojana Jankovic in 2007 and was instantly captivated by her beauty. Born in Serbia and now a resident and citizen of the United States, Jankovic is a physician.

Despite their filed divorce, the former husband and wife kept things professional and worked closely on "The Young and the Restless." There has been no news regarding the finalization of their divorce.

About two years after they first met, Weatherly finally tied the knot again and wed Jankovic on September 6, 2009. The couple has since welcomed two children, a daughter, Olivia, born in 2012 and a son, Liam, born in 2013.

While currently happy with his life, the "NCIS" star previously confessed that the failure of his first marriage made him determined to be a better man, a good husband, and a good father. He said:

"That was a very difficult time. When I got remarried, I wanted to do my very best to ensure that rapture wouldn't happen again. My kids and my marriage are the things I'm proudest of."

In his farewell statement, while leaving the NCIS cast after starring in 13 seasons, Weatherly said that his children were excited to have him around. He took a break for a few months before returning to shoot for his new CBS series. The family resides in their beautiful Hollywood Hills home with two pet dogs.

Meanwhile, Heinle also moved on in life. Following their divorce, she starred in "All My Children," "The Bold and the Beautiful," and "The Young and the Restless," where she met the man who made her fall in love again, Thad Luckinbill.

The couple eventually tied the knot and welcomed two children, Thaddeus and Georgia, just like their on-screen characters. However, on March 1, 2017, the couple filed for divorce.

They cited irreconcilable differences and ended their marriage. Luckinbill then moved from working in front of the cameras to behind the scenes as a producer in "La La Land."

Despite their filed divorce, the former husband and wife kept things professional and worked closely on "The Young and the Restless." There has been no news regarding the finalization of their divorce.
