Clint Eastwood’s first marriage, to Maggie Johnson, was incredibly lengthy by Hollywood standards. The couple wed in 1953, welcomed two children and remained married for 31 years before finally splitting. But in retrospect, it’s clear why the partnership dissolved: Clint fathered two children outside of the marriage during their time together.

Clint Eastwood’s second marriage was lengthy as well — and it too came to an end after 17 years in 2013. In 1996, he wed news anchor Dina Ruiz; they welcomed his youngest child, daughter Morgan, that same year. The couple surprisingly had a reality show on E!, “Mrs. Eastwood & Company,” that debuted in 2012 and followed Dina’s life — and their marriage actually ended when the series was airing. The couple actually quietly split in 2012, with Clint allegedly getting angry about the reality show and the airing of his normally private life. He was reportedly then contacted by Erica Fisher, the ex-wife of one of Dina’s high school pals, Scott Fisher. Erica was concerned that Dina and Scott had struck up a recent close friendship, and unfortunately, once the cameras stopped rolling, the real drama began: Clint reportedly started dating Erica as his marriage to Dina came to and end. Dina went on to marry Scott in 2016.

Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille wed in 1974 and a year later, their song “Love Will Keep Us Together” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and later won a Grammy for record of the year.

None of this is his fault.”
