Harrison Ford has been married three different times. The first time was to his college sweetheart, Mary Marquardt. They married in 1964 and divorced in 1979 – just a few years after Ford was known to have had a romantic affair with his Star Wars co-star, Carrie Fischer. Harrison Ford and Mary Marquardt had two children together, Benjamin and Willard.

In 1983, Ford married screenwriter Melissa Mathison. Mathison is famous for having written the beloved 1990’s children films, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial and The Indian in The Cupboard, as well as (more recently) the BFG.

Harrison Ford and Melissa Mathison had two children together, Malcolm and Georgia.

In 2002, Harrison Ford began dating actress Calista Flockhart. They were engaged over Valentine’s Day weekend in 2009, and married the following year. Although the two do not have biological children together, Ford has a step son from his current relationship, Liam.   This means that, through three different women, Harrison Ford has five children – four biological and one step. He also now has three grandchildren.

Liam Flockhart

Liam Flockhart was adopted by Calista Flockhart shortly before her and Harrison Ford began seeing each other. Since Liam was a few months old, Ford has been the central father figure in his life – and it shows. Harrison has been quoted as saying that his weekends consist doing “whatever Calista and Liam want to do. We’ll take a couple of hours on Sunday morning to go motorcycle riding [or] go for a hike. I just made a birdhouse with my son.”
