Relationship With Clint Eastwood
The former flight attendant is pretty tight-lipped about her romantic past but her clandestine dalliance with the movie superstar, Clint Eastwood is far from the type that can be easily swept under the rug. Clint is renowned as a multiple award-winning actor, musician, filmmaker as well as politician. The height of his political ambition saw him as a past mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
It was during her heydays as a flight attendant that Jacelyn Reeves met Clint onboard one of the flights she worked on in 1985. Already married to Maggie Eastwood by the time they met, the Hollywood mogul kept his relationship with Jacelyn a secret for five long years before their bubble was burst by the tabloids, which probably led to the end of their relationship.
Their dalliance resulted in the birth of two children – a son called Scott Eastwood who was born on the 21st of March 1986 and a daughter, Kathryn Eastwood who was born on the 2nd of February 1988. Both of Jacelyn Reeves’ children are now adults and are busy creating a niche for themselves in the entertainment industry.
Regardless of the rumors that ran rife at that time about Clint leaving his wife for Jacelyn Reeves, the movie icon continued his union with Maggie.
