Meeting Clint Eastwood and his daughter he once didn’t know he had

Laurie Murray was the result of an affair that Eastwood had no idea about. Eastwood was engaged to his first wife Maggie Johnson when he had an affair with a woman in Seattle. That woman became pregnant and put the baby up for adoption, and her adoptive parents named her Laurie. MSN notes that the actor had no idea this child was his until she found him 30 years ago.
This came about from pure curiosity as Laurie wanted to know who her real birth parents were. When she was able to finally track down her birth certificate, she noted that Eastwood was listed as her birth father. After tracking him down and finding him several years ago, they have maintained a very close relationship since. Laurie has also been able to maintain a great relationship with her birth mother and his ex-wife and all of Eastwood’s children.

Laurie made her official red carpet debut walk in December 2018 with all of her siblings, Eastwood’s other kids. She’s long been a part of Eastwood’s life, as photo evidence shows Laurie arm-in-arm with Clint’s mother Ruth Wood at the 2004 Oscars. Eastwood was also there for the 2012 nuptials of Laurie’s son and daughter-in-law. To see the blossoming relationship of Clint Eastwood and his daughter is truly beautiful after so many years of being apart!
