Clint’s Love Life Through the Years

Given that Clint’s been in the spotlight since the mid-’50s, there’s been no end of rumors and speculation surrounding his love life. Over the years, the Hollywood icon has dated a number of famous women, and his list of long-term romances and short-term affairs is almost as long as his filmography.

Married Twice

In 1953, Eastwood had a relationship that resulted in the birth of a daughter named Laurie in 1954. However, the movie star didn’t even know she was born, and she was eventually adopted by another couple.

Eastwood went on to marry Maggie Johnson, but it’s rumored that his interest in other women endured. Speculation surrounds a number of extra-marital affairs during this time, including one with a stuntwoman named Roxanne Tunis that produced a daughter, Kimber, in 1964.

Eastwood and Maggie had a son of their own, Kyle, in 1968, and a daughter, Alison, in 1972. While there were undoubtedly trysts and flings over the following years, Clint and Maggie officially divorced in 1984.

In the years that followed, Clint welcomed two more children – Scott in 1986 and Kathryn in 1988 – from different relationships. The actor then became a father once more thanks to his relationship with Frances Fisher. Their daughter, Francesca, was born in 1993.

Clint with his wife Dina

In 1996, Clint tied the knot with news presenter Dina Ruiz. The couple welcomed a baby daughter, Morgan Eastwood, into the world. However, their marriage wasn’t meant to last, and they divorced in 2013.

Meeting Christina Sandera

After breaking up with Dina, Clint was seen with several women. But in 2015, he started appearing with a vivacious blonde by his side. The woman turned heads when she walked the red carpet as Eastwood’s date to the Academy Awards in 2015. Many thought she looked very similar to Clint Eastwood’s former girlfriend Sondra Locke.

Christina Sandera, a California native, captured Clint Eastwood’s heart when they first met in 2014. Christina was working as a restaurant hostess at Eastwood’s Mission Ranch Hotel, a resort created by Clint in Carmel, California. Sandera and Eastwood were introduced by a mutual friend and quickly fell in love.

Christina, who is currently 56 years old, is 35 years younger than Clint. Before meeting the legendary actor, she was married to bakery owner Paul Wainscoat for 11 months. After Clint and Christina’s relationship became public, Paul Wainscoat spoke out and criticized his ex-wife, calling their marriage “hell”.

By all accounts, Clint and Christina seem to be very happy together – their relationship has now lasted for eight years. Clint has remained in the family’s home in Carmel Valley since his divorce from Dina. After they began dating, Christina moved into the $20 million mansion Eastwood built for his ex-wife.

A source close to the couple said, “He’s truly happy with her. She’s fun, easygoing, and his kids like her too. She’s on an even keel like he is.”

It’s clear that Clint’s children have embraced his new love as well. Christina has been seen spending time with Clint’s children, and they appear happy that their 90-year-old father has found someone to share his final years with.

In December 2018, during the premiere of “The Mule,” Christina appeared side by side with her boyfriend’s kids and his first wife, Margaret “Maggie” Johnson. It was a special moment for Clint, as he wanted all of his children to be there.

Clint has had many women in his life, which is not surprising given the fantastic career and success he has had. But today it seems that he has found someone he’s truly happy with. He looks so happy with his new girlfriend, and we wish them many happy years to come!
