The 72-year-old became a grandmother for the first time in 1998 — her eldest, Peter Craig, welcomed a baby girl, Isabel, 21, with his first wife, poet and Amy Scattergood. The pair would also go on to have another daughter, Sophie, 18, in 2001. The Smokey and the Bandit alum was recently seen with the teenager, as the duo did a bit of shopping out in New York City! These wouldn’t be the only little ones that Sally’s kids would welcome either.
Peter would marry again, this time to Jennifer DeFrancisco — they would give the Oscar winner her first grandson, Ogden.
The Mrs. Doubtfire‘s star second oldest son Eli would also have kids of his own with his wife, former Power Ranger Sasha Williams. Together the couple would welcome two boys — Noah, born in 2006, and Colin, in 2014. So great! All in all that is five grandkids for Sally! While these days Sally is busy being a grandma, she also keeps her own children as a priority — she once spoke about her youngest boy, who has come as gay.
“It’s important to have a parent speak about raising a magnificent, proud, intelligent, funny, lovable, sexy gay son,” the A-lister once said. “There are so many parents who are frightened of that and who don’t embrace their children as the struggle to … embrace who they are, what nature intended them to be.”
Even though she has her hands full with family as well as her career, Sally is quite alright taking it on all on her own, as she is not interested in welcoming a new man into her life anytime soon. “I don’t even try,” The Flying Nun star said of looking for love at a Live Talks LA Q&A about her memoir, In Pieces. “I’m really happy with how I am, and I really don’t want to pick up your underwear in the morning, you know?”
Well, it seems like Sally is completely okay with her kids, her grandchildren and her life. So great to hear!
