She has had an incredible career, filled with a ton of recognition including two Academy Awards and an AFI Life Achievement Award, but Jane Fonda values something else a lot more than all of her hardware: her children, and it’s time we get to know who exactly they are.
The legendary actress has been married and divorced three times in her life, and she has three kids in total from those relationships. The Grace and Frankie star first tied the knot with French film director Roger Vadim in 1965. Before parting ways in 1973, the pair had one daughter, Vanessa Vadim, in 1968.
Jane married again a short time after divorcing her first husband, this time to activist Tom Hayden. The couple was married in 1973 and split in 1990, and welcomed two kids along the way — a son named Troy, and an adopted daughter, Mary Luana Williams. The Book Club actress married media mogul Ted Turner in 1991, but the duo did not have any children in the ten years they were together.
While Jane doesn’t speak about her kids publicity very much, we know that she is all about them.
