Personal Life- Meeting Clint and Married life

Dina and Clint met in 1992 when Dina interviewed Clint for KSBW-TV. Talking about the first time the pair met, Clint revealed in 2007,

“[She] was doing an interview with me…[and] we got along really well and I guess we flirted a little bit because she took the film back to KSBW and one of her associates said, ‘You’re going to marry him.’ Then we were attending a function out at Spanish Bay and [one of the hosts] said, ‘Do you mind sitting with Dina Ruiz?’ I said, ‘No! Not at all!’ We ended up holding hands and doing all that kind of nonsense and then we started dating and we’re still dating. … She’s a very forthright kind of person. It’s one of those things you can’t put your finger on because it’s pheromones or something.”

The pair tied the knot on March 31, 1996, and gave birth to their first daughter the same year. Morgan Eastwood was born on the 12th of December, 1996, and was the only daughter of the pair. While the pair had a lovely life, things got bad in April of 2013 and Dina entered rehab for depression and anxiety. In August of the same year, Dina and Clint started living separately, and Dina filed for divorce on October 22, 2013, citing irreconcilable differences. While Dina was struck hard by her divorce, she denied all claims of infidelity.

“I don’t think you can call any infidelity or cheating or anything like that when we are already living separately, same house, but separately you’re living estranged so I have no intention of ever saying that, no.”

Moving On & Second Marriage

What followed after the divorce was a scandalous love quadrangle that made headlines and shocked their fans. Dina Eastwood found solace in the arms of Scott Fisher, a college basketball coach and a childhood friend from her hometown of Fremont, California. Fisher had also gone through a divorce from his ex-wife, Erica Tomlinson-Fisher, who happened to be Dina’s friend. But the plot thickened when Clint Eastwood started dating Erica, creating an awkward swap of partners.

The media frenzy over the bizarre situation was intense, but Dina and Scott did not let it affect their blossoming romance. They got engaged in 2015 and tied the knot in a beach wedding in Santa Barbara, California, on July 2, 2016.
