Clint Eastwood has been recognized time and again for his performance in Hollywood as an actor, director, producer and composer of film music, but now the 88-year-old earning critical acclaim for his oldest roles – as a father.

According to his daughter Alison, Eastwood is more relaxed than how most people see him.

“My father is much more cool and relaxed guy than many of his characters,” his daughter Alison told Closer Weekly. “He has a wonderfully dry, dark sense of humor.”

He certainly couldn’t be “laid-back,” however, as he had a relatively hands-on work of raising seven children.

“My parents separated when I was very young, but he always made time for us, even when he was at work,” Allison said.

His son, Kyle, 50, is his oldest son from his first marriage with Maggie Johnson, which lasted from 1953 to 1984. Alison, 46, followed after, but during that marriage, he welcomed another daughter, Kimber, 54, by having an affair with Roxanne Tunis. Clint has two other children, Scott, 32, and Kathryn, 30, with his then-girlfriend, Jacelyn Reeves, as well as a 25-year-old daughter Francesca with Frances Fisher, who co-starred next to him in the four-time Academy Award-winning Western, “Unforgiven.”

In 1996, he married Dina Ruiz, and the couple had a daughter, Morgan, now 21 years old.

To add more to his long list of subordinates, Clint also has two grandchildren with another on the way, as Francesca is pregnant with her first. “He loves them all,” said Alison.

Scott has made a name for himself as a model and actor in big-budget films, most recently “Pacific Rim” sequel, but he has admitted in the past about how it is difficult as the son of a well-known actor.

“To be honest, sometimes I still feel like the cool kid in Hollywood, that they do not take it seriously,” he told Modern Luxury. “It is a constant struggle. But I find it fun to be in the fight.”

Still, he has his father and his wisdom in high esteem, even to say that he never pushed him to get into the on-screen biz.

Happy birthday dad. 88 never looked so good. #legend

“Daddy didn’t care if I was a plumber or an actor. He said: ‘Whatever you do, just do it well. Be humble about what you do, a good man and tell the truth,” Scott told Treats! magazine.

Today, Clint Eastwood is dating Christina Sandera, 55, an employee of the Mission Ranch Hotel he owns in Carmel, California.
