Who is Kathryn Eastwood’s mother? Her Parents Love Story

Her mother Jacelyn Reeves is a former flight attendant. Born on 21st December 1951, in Seattle, Jacelyn only rose to stardom following her romantic relationship with Eastwood. The two reportedly started dating in the 1980s. If some online tabloids are to be believed, the two began their lovey-dovey even when the actor was still married to his first wife, Maggie Johnson.

Ever since his marriage to Maggie in 1953, the actor continued having affairs with several women including stuntwoman Roxanne Tunis, actress Sondra Locke, Sondra Locke, and more.

One of these women was Kathryn’s mother Jocelyn also. The two met for the first time in Hog’s Breath Inn. Their meeting soon turned into romance.

As for their courtship, it was, however, lasted for only a couple of years. They reportedly separated the same year their daughter was born.

As far as their professional life is concerned, Scott is comparatively more successful than his sista. He is an actor with numerous films credits under his belt. Most famously, the actor has worked in movies like Flags of Our Fathers, The Forger, Trouble with the Curve, The Fate of the Furious, and more.

He also won the Teen Choice Awards for his work in the romantic drama movie The Longest Ride.

Kathryn Eastwood’s Father Initially Didn’t Accept Them As His Own Kids

Following Kathryn’s parents’ separation, her mother reportedly started living in Hawaii, raising both of her children single-handedly. However, things were a little difficult for Jacelyn as Kathryn’s father Clint refused to admit the paternity of their kids. As per some reliable articles, published in the 1990s, Kathryn’s birth certificate said ‘Father Declined’.

Although the mother of two kids wasn’t initially thinking about filing a paternity suit against him, Reeves eventually filed for the case. And it was only in the 2000s, some publications reported that Clint accepted Kathryn and his brother Scott as his own children.

Since then, the relationship between Kathryn and her father is going pretty well. The father-and-daughter duo often appears together at various big events. Back in 2017, Eastwood was seen attending the premiere of Dark Sky Films’ “M.F.A.” at The London West Hollywood with her father and sisters.

Similarly, over the years, Kathryn appeared in several family outings.

Her Father is Incredibly Protective of His Daughter Now

How ironically it is? Clint who initially refused to admit the paternity of his kids with Reeves later became the most caring father of them. He once even went on to beat his son Scott for being a less caring brother to his sister.

Back in 2016, the Pacific Rim: Uprising star recalled to GQ one of his scariest incidents with his father. It was when Scott was 16-year-old while his sister Kathryn was about 14, the actor alongside his sista, planned to go to a house party.

At the time, Eastwood left her sister at the party to go to get some beers with his buddies. However, his dad later learned about the incident. And it was how Scott got the corporal punishment from his father. Clint slammed his son against a wall and punched him, square in the face.
