Clint Eastwood: All About the Iconic Actor and Director’s Children

Clint Eastwood, the legendary actor and director, is not only an icon but also a loving father to a remarkable number of children. The esteemed actor is a father to six daughters: Laurie, Kimber, Alison, Kathryn, Francesca, and Morgan. He is also blessed with two sons named Kyle and Scott. Laurie, the eldest, was born in 1954, while Morgan, the youngest, came into the world in 1996.

Born in 1954, Laurie Murray is the eldest child of Eastwood. Surprisingly, the actor was initially unaware of Laurie’s birth, leading to her adoption. However, as reported by the Daily Mail, Eastwood and Laurie eventually reconnected years later. Their reunion reached a memorable milestone in 2004 when Laurie accompanied her father to the Oscars. Notably, in 2018, Laurie joined her siblings to celebrate the premiere of Eastwood’s film The Mule.

Kimber Lynn Eastwood was born on June 17, 1964, in Los Angeles to Eastwood and Roxanne Tunis. While she briefly pursued acting and appeared in movies like Passion Crimes and Crossed, as well as some of her father’s films, Kimber now focuses on producing TV and film projects and primarily works as a makeup artist. She has demonstrated her talent as the lead makeup artist for reality shows like Wheel of Fortune and Dog the Bounty Hunter, as well as her father’s film The Mule.

Eastwood and his first wife, Maggie Johnson, had a son named Kyle Eastwood, born on May 19, 1968. According to Monterey County Weekly, Kyle initially pursued film studies at the University of Southern California and even had roles in a few of his father’s movies. However, he ultimately chose to follow his passion for music, establishing himself as a talented jazz bassist and film score composer.

Kyle’s jazz quintet is rooted in London, although he splits his time between the U.S. and the UK. Half of the year, he immerses himself in work and visits his family in California. Notably, he has composed music for numerous films, including nine collaborations with Clint Eastwood, such as Gran Torino and Million Dollar Baby.
