Clint Eastwood has been around for so long that almost every inch of his life has been covered by a newspaper at some point.
It can be challenging to comprehend that the iconic actor is already 92 years old despite being a titan of the big screen.
It is sufficient to say that he has experienced everything, both personally and professionally. Given that Clint has spent over 70 years in the intense limelight, secrets, showbiz drama, and sensational scandals, it’s hardly surprise that he’s run into his fair share of trouble.
One that not everyone is aware of, though, may be the biggest shock of his long life. It’s been a while since I’ve seen one of them. I’ve heard of them, but never seen one.
Yet, when he discovered it, it drastically altered his life.
It comes as no big surprise that Clint Eastwood, who stood 6 feet 4 inches tall, had the admiration of many women during his prime because of his rugged good looks and frequently piercing gaze.
All told, the actor is father to eight children, though for a long while he had no idea that was the case. No, Clint believed he had seven children for most of his life, until one day a woman claiming to be his daughter took him by surprise.
As per reports, while engaged to Maggie Johnson in the early 1950s – and before he became the illustrious name he is now – Eastwood had an affair with a woman in Seattle.
What he wasn’t to know was that she fell pregnant with his child, which she then put up for adoption after their relationship ended and they went their separate ways.
Clint Eastwood’s son shares a startling tale about a time when his father became irate.
Clint Eastwood’s gorgeous property, which is almost as old as he is, is inside.
While riding a horse, Clint Eastwood’s grandson resembles him exactly.
The child, a baby girl called Laurie Murray, was adopted by a couple in Seattle, but years later decided she wanted to find out who her actual parents were.
A family friend explained: “This all happened around 30 years ago. Laurie Murray had been really interested in finding out who her real parents were and hired someone to help her. When they found the paperwork, her biological mother had written down Clint Eastwood’s name.
“From what it appeared, Clint Eastwood had no idea that she was even pregnant.”
They added: “I don’t think she had the best upbringing, certainly not privileged. When she found her biological parents, she reached out to her mother but she didn’t want to be contacted.”
Fortunately, Clint was more receptive to his biological daughter’s approach.
“It obviously came as a great shock to Laurie but I believe that Clint was extremely receptive to her and the situation,” said the family friend.
As the years went by, Laurie and Clint became closer, and she ultimately started to attend holidays with the family on a regular basis.
When Patrick McGilligan, the actor’s biographer, described Eastwood’s friendship with Laurie’s biological mother in his book Clint: The Life and Legend, the public first learned of the actor’s unidentified eighth child.
McGilligan said: “I think when he discovered she was his daughter and realized she was that person from long before … he was okay with it.”
The source also revealed: “Laurie and her family are wealthy in their own right. So it wasn’t a situation, which I’m sure someone like Clint Eastwood is used to, of someone crawling out of the woodwork looking for money.
“Laurie is a very nice woman and very private, she definitely doesn’t go around telling people this.”
Clint has eight kids in total, including a son named Kyle and a daughter named Alison from his marriage to Maggie Johnson; a daughter named Kimber from a relationship he had with Roxanne Tunis while married to Johnson; Scott and Kathryn from a relationship with a former girlfriend named Jacelyn Reeves; a daughter named Francesca from a relationship with Frances Fisher; and a son named Morgan from his relationship with his current wife Dina Ruiz.
