Clint Eastwood and Jacelyn Reeves first met at a restaurant called the Hog’s Breath Inn in 1984 when Jacelyn was working as a flight attendant. Some sources state that they met much earlier than this, onboard a flight. The pair quickly fell in love and started dating.

Clint and Jacelyn’s relationship lasted for several years, and they had two children: a son, whom they named Scott Eastwood, and a daughter, Kathryn Ann Eastwood.
Scott was born on March 21, 1986, while Kathryn was born a few years later, on February 2, 1988. Scott rose to become an accomplished Hollywood actor, much like his father. The same goes for Kathryn, who also works as an actress and a screenwriter.
After the birth of their two kids, Clint continued to focus on his acting career, while Jacelyn quit her job and devoted most of her time to caring for the children. Unfortunately, Clint and Jacelyn’s relationship ended in the 1990s, and the pair went their separate ways.
Jacelyn faced some financial difficulties after the breakup with Clint and had to work hard to make ends meet for her family. Scott even worked as a bartender at a young age to earn extra cash. He soon transferred to California to be closer to his father.
In a statement with the media, Jacelyn revealed that she was advised by some of her family members to file a paternity suit against Clint Eastwood, but she declined because she didn’t want to.
Jacelyn Reeves’s Son: Scott Eastwood
Scott Eastwood, Jacelyn and Clint’s eldest son, was born in Monterey, California, in 1986. When asked to describe his childhood, Scott says he remembers being dragged around to movie sets and appreciating the value of hard work, as shown by his father.
He also recalls his dad teaching him to be health conscious and encouraging him to go to the gym at an early age. Scott emphasizes that he still had to go through struggles, work odd jobs like parking cars and construction, and make his own name despite having a successful dad.
Scott’s big break in acting came with his roles in Flags of Our Fathers and Gran Torino, which were films directed by his dad. However, Scott auditioned for the roles without using his family connections and even used his mom’s last name to keep things fair and professional.
Scott’s other noteworthy appearances were in The Longest Ride, The Fate of the Furious, Snowden, Pacific Rim, and Suicide Squad. He aims to follow in his father’s footsteps and also become a director in the near future.

Jacelyn and Clint’s second child, Kathryn Ann Eastwood, was born in Carmel, California, in 1988. Like her father and brother, Kathryn also went into the glitzy and glamorous world of acting. She was awarded Miss Golden Globe in 2005.
One of Kathryn’s first roles was in 2014 when she starred as Tommy’s girlfriend in Jersey Boys, a movie musical directed by her father. Kathryn has also appeared in other films, such as Candles, Thick Water, House Slave, and Mr. and Mrs. Muse: Retribution.
In addition to her acting prowess, Kathryn is also a talented writer and director. One of her major works is the zombie horror film Virus of the Dead.
