Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg is responsible for some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbuster films that have grossed over $25 billion at the box office. Not only has the 73-year-old created hugely successful movies throughout his legendary career, but Spielberg also has built a beautifully blended family that includes a total of seven children.
The Jaws director was first married to wife Amy Irving from 1985 to 1989 after meeting on the set of Close Encounters in 1976. They had one child together, a son named Max. After their much-publicized divorce, which landed Amy $100 million, which was one of the largest divorce settlements in history at the time, Spielberg went on to marry Kate Capshaw on October 1, 1991.
The Jurassic Park director first met Capshaw on the set of his 1984 film, Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, and later this year, they will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. When they tied the knot, Capshaw had two children from her previous marriage to Robert Capshaw, daughter Jessica Capshaw, and adopted son, Theo.
Spielberg and Capshaw went on to have three more children together, daughters Sasha, 29, and Destry, 23, and son Sawyer, 27. Together, they also adopted daughter Mikaela, 23, who is making headlines after announcing to The Sun that she’s decided to become a porn star.

And I also just got tired of working day to day in a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul. I feel like doing this kind of work, I’m able to ‘satisfy’ other people, but that feels good because it’s not in a way that makes me feel violated.”
