Jacelyn Reeves Personal Life, Affair with Clint Eastwood, and Children
Jacelyn met, Clint in 1985. Some say they met while onboard a flight while others say it was at an American restaurant named Hog’s Breath Inn. At the time, Clint was married to his first wife, Maggie Johnson.
However, this did not deter him from starting a romantic relationship with flight attendant Jacelyn. Eventually, they fell heads over heels with each other and began their dating journey.
Around the same time, Clint’s marriage to Maggie was deteriorating, and it was the same period when it was publicly known that Clint was also having an affair with actress Sondra Locke. The actress mentioned the matter later in her autobiography.
The fiery affair between Jacelyn and Clint resulted in the birth of their two children, Scott Eastwood born on 22 March 1986 in Carmel, and daughter, Kathryn Ann Eastwood on 2 February 1988. During the first years of these children’s lives, their parents raised them together.
At the time, Clint was acting in movies while Jacelyn was a stay-at-home mum to her children.
However, the sparkle between the flight attendant and the Hollywood superstar came to an end as fast as it started. The couple broke up in 1990. Even though the two lived together for around five years, Jacelyn was never given the status of Clint’s wife. It could be because Clint never finalized a divorce from his first wife, or he didn’t want to make things official. Whatever the case, it’s not known why they never legalized things.
Apparently, things did not end too well between them, since later Jacelyn wrote ‘father declined’ in Scott’s and Kathryn’s birth certificates. Jacelyn moved to Hawaii with her children, where they lived. For some time, the family struggled with making ends meet as Jacelyn had problems in maintaining a job and her children on her own. Due to the financial constraints, Scott had to work as a bartender at a tender age. However, as a teenager, he moved to California to be close to his father. After the breakup from Clint, Jacelyn is said to have dated Private Bell – the relationship was strictly personal as they chose to keep it under wraps.
The media has not been able to dig out any information about them – they never publicized their wedding date and venue. It’s also unknown whether the two are still living together.
Jacelyn does not fancy being in the limelight. Ever since she ended her relationship with Clint, Reeves has not been making public appearances at celebrity parties or offering comments to the media. The best she can do now is appear publicly with her successful children, for example, at Scott’s 30th birthday celebrations in San Diego.
Scott Eastwood followed in his father’s footsteps, and is a model and now an actor. He won the Teen Choice Award in the Choice Movie Actor category for his extraordinary performance on “The Longest Ride” in 2015. He’s also appeared in other memorable projects such as “Invictus,” “Flags of Our Father,” “Suicide Squad,” and “Snowden.” Scott was also part of the cast of “Pacific Rim Uprising” and “Enter Nowhere.”
Kathryn also followed her family roots, although she isn’t as famous as her brother. She is an actress who has appeared in various movies, including “House Slave,” “Mr. and Mrs. Muse: Retribution,” and “Virus of the Dead.”
She was also crowned Miss Golden Globe in 2005. Kathryn is the opposite of her brother. She makes few public appearances and prefers to keep her personal life away from the public eye, just like her mother.
Scott once revealed that his maternal grandmother was struggling with Alzheimer’s disease. He confessed that it was tough to watch his mother taking care of the grandmother, as she couldn’t even remember who Jacelyn was. Although his grandmother passed on when he was only 10 years old, his memories of her live on. Scott opened up about the experience to spread awareness about dementia while also talking about his mother’s courage during the trying time.
According to Scott, he isn’t sure how it would make him feel if his parents couldn’t remember his name or that he called them the previous day.
