Now that the Terminator franchise is being reignited once again, Linda Hamilton is back in the spotlight as she will be reprising her iconic role as Sarah Conner. However, while she’s kicking butt on screen, she’s also fighting hard for her two great kids — and it’s time you get to know them!
The actress, now 63, tied the knot with her first husband, actor Bruce Abbott, in 1982. The pair would have one son, Dalton, in 1989. The duo would part ways that same year. That wouldn’t be the only child for Linda — in 1997, after being with director and Terminator creator James Cameron for four years, she would welcome a daughter, Josephine. Unfortunately, Linda and the A-list filmmaker would divorce just two years later.
Today, the Beauty and the Beast alum has not remarried again, and she has made it very clear that we shouldn’t expect her to have more kids anytime soon. “I’ve been celibate for at least 15 years,” she once revealed to The New York Times. “One loses track, because it just doesn’t matter — or at least it doesn’t matter to me. I have a very romantic relationship with my world every day and the people who are in it.”
“I love my alone time like no one you’ve ever met,” Linda joked to the outlet. “I woke up one day and I was like, ‘Well, here I am in my beautiful mansion and my kids aren’t here, my agents aren’t calling, and this is not real.’”
While Linda’s kids are kept out of the spotlight for the most part, we know they are completely hyped to see their mom grace the big screen again — especially since she went all out to prepare for her latest role in Terminator: Dark Fate. “I had a true village of experts trying to get the most out of this body,” Linda once explained, adding that getting into incredible shape in her 60s was a lot harder than 30 years ago. “This was 10 times the effort,” she said, “[but] it’s incredibly liberating to play someone of this age.” Amazing!
