Due to his lengthy career in the spotlight, Clint Eastwood has nearly always had his life covered by the media.
The fact that the great performer, a true giant of cinema, is already 92 years old, is astounding.
He has likely experienced everything, both personally and professionally. Given that Clint has spent nearly 70 years of his life in the public eye, it is not surprise that he has been involved in his fair share of controversies, rumors, and mysteries.
But despite the fact that he has lived a long time, he is in for a huge surprise that no one is expecting. For a very long time, not even the performer knew anything about this one.
Yet if he did, his life would be fundamentally altered.
It seems sense that, at the height of his popularity, Clint Eastwood attracted a lot of women. He is physically handsome and has a height of 6 feet 4 inches.
The actor has a total of eight children, which he was previously ignorant of. Before he was startled by a lady claiming to be his daughter, Clint had actually always thought he had seven children.
Eastwood supposedly had an affair with a woman in Seattle in the early 1950s while he was engaged to Maggie Johnson, long before he rose to fame as we know him today.
Once their relationship ended, she became pregnant by him and decided to give the child up for adoption without telling him.
After being adopted as a newborn by a Seattle-based couple, Laurie Murray made the decision that she was interested in finding out more about her biological family.
Almost 30 years ago, a family acquaintance gave the Daily Mail newspaper information. Laurie Murray had hired a private investigator to identify her biological parents. They discovered that her biological mother had named Clint Eastwood as the father on certain documentation.
According to sources, Clint Eastwood didn’t appear to be aware that she was even carrying a child.
They said, “I don’t think she had the best childhood, definitely not privileged. After finding out who her biological parents were, she made an attempt to speak with her mother, but she refused.
Fortunately, Clint understood his biological daughter’s perspective.
“I think Clint was really empathetic to her and the situation,” the family friend said. It undoubtedly gave Laurie a major jolt.
Laurie and Clint got closer over time to the point that she started going everywhere with the family.
When Patrick McGilligan mentioned Clint’s relationship with Laurie’s real mother in his biography of the actor, Clint: The Life and Legend, that’s when the eighth child of Clint initially came to light.
According to McGilligan, “I think when he found she was his daughter and recognized she was that person from long ago… he was alright with it.”
The Daily Mail source quoted earlier claims that “Laurie and her family are already pretty wealthy. Hence, it wasn’t a situation when someone emerged from hiding to beg for money, as Clint Eastwood is undoubtedly accustomed to.
As Laurie is such a sweet and private person, she most likely doesn’t disclose this to others.
Clint has fathered eight children in total, including sons Kyle and Alison from his union with current wife Dina Ruiz, Kimber from an affair with Roxanne Tunis while he was still married to Johnson, Scott and Kathryn from a relationship with Jacelyn Reeves, Francesca from a relationship with Frances Fisher, and Morgan from his union with Maggie Johnson.
