Both Parents Alive at Seventy


Can anyone think of famous people who got to the age of seventy whose natural parents were both still alive.

Three I've thought of so far are:

Prince Charles. (that happened last month)

Michael Douglas. (son of Kirk - who is still alive)

George W. Bush (whose father's death prompted this question).

Any more?

In that sense, no. But Scott Eastwood (32) came to mind as his parents are still both alive (thank God, I'd hate to read news about Clint Eastwood, you know, "departing").

Clint Eastwood - 88

Jacelyn Reeves - 66



There can't be that many - although that one doesn't count thanks for trying. I first started thinking about this before Prince Charles' birthday, I checked on Michael Douglas and then when George Bush senior died (his wife died earlier this year) It was obvious that "Young George" who is 72 must qualfy.


I did a bit of checking and although not correct you were inadvertently nearer than you thought - Clint was about 75 when his natural mother (Ruth Wood) died in 2006 - but his natural father (Clinton) died when Clint was 40 - but interestingly Clint's stepfather (John Belden Wood) died in 2004 when Clint was about 74.

Just realised his mother only had to remove "East" from her name when she remarried after Clint's father's death - that was convenient!☺


davidstockport was Michael Douglas mother still alive then? I loved Kirk as a young teen/woman. No! I am Spartacus.


lynnibis Yes Diana Douglas (as she was known at the time of Michael's birth) died in 2016 a few

months before Michael became 72 so was definitely alive when Michael reached his 70th birthday, his father, Kirk, will be 102 next week on the 9th December (unless I've put the mockers on him).

I realise my quest for famous people who still had both parents alive on their 70th birthday will be difficult unless their parents were reasonably well known too - but I'll keep trying ☺

It will be over 20 months until Princess Anne hopefully qualifies.


OMG Kirk Douglas is 101 years old??? Lots of booze and good women makes a man healthy and wise haha...
