Clint Eastwood has been famous for a really long time, and everyone knows a lot about his life. It’s kinda surprising to think that this big movie star is now 92 years old.
In his long life, Clint has seen and been through a lot, both in his work and personal life. He’s been in the public eye for about 70 years, and with that much time, there have been plenty of ups and downs, secrets, and juicy stories.
But one surprising thing about his life that not everyone knows is pretty interesting. Clint Eastwood, the tough guy from the movies, is actually the father of eight children. The surprising part is that he didn’t know about one of them for a long time.
Back in the day, a lot of women were big fans of Clint Eastwood. I mean, with his good looks, intense gaze, and towering height of 6 feet 4 inches, who wouldn’t be a fan? But here’s the twist – Clint thought he had seven kids, not eight.
Rumors say that Clint had a romantic thing with a woman in Seattle in the early 1950s, while he was engaged to someone else. This was way before he became the famous actor we all know. What he didn’t know was that the woman in Seattle got pregnant with his child, and she put the baby up for adoption after they broke up.
This adopted girl, Laurie Murray, grew up and decided she wanted to find her real parents. In 2018, she hired an investigator and found out Clint Eastwood was her dad. Imagine Clint’s surprise!
Laurie tried to connect with her biological mom, but she wasn’t interested. On the bright side, Clint was open to getting to know his newfound daughter. They became closer over the years, and Laurie even joined family vacations.
People only found out about Clint’s eighth child when his biographer spilled the beans in a book. According to the biographer, Clint was okay with it when he found out Laurie was his daughter.
Laurie and her family are doing well on their own, so it’s not like she came out of nowhere asking for money. She’s a private person, and not many people know about this part of her life.
In total, Clint Eastwood is married to Maggie Johnson and has eight children: Scott and Kathryn with an ex-girlfriend; Francesca with another ex; Morgan with his current wife; and Kimber with someone he had a thing with while married to Maggie. It’s pretty crazy that he didn’t know about one of his kids for so many years!
