Sophia Loren Is a Mom to 2 Adult Sons: Get to Know Her Kids Carlo Ponti Jr. and Edoardo Ponti

Sophia Loren has been blowing fans away with her incredible acting skills for decades, but the iconic performer had the loving support of her two sons, Carlo Ponti Jr. and Edoardo Ponti, along the way. Now that the Two Women star’s children are adults, they’ve grown up to be just as successful.

Sophia started her family two years after tying the knot with her husband, Carlo Ponti, in 1966. The Marriage Italian Style actress welcomed their eldest child, Carlo Jr., in 1968. Sophia and the late film producer’s youngest son, Edoardo, arrived five years later in 1973.

Since the kids have grown up, they’ve followed in their mom’s epic Hollywood footsteps. Because Sophia has had plenty of opportunities to collaborate with her talented children, she’s developed quite the bond with her sons — especially Eduardo, who directed her latest film, The Life Ahead.

He knows me so well,” the Houseboat star exclusively gushed to Closer in October 2020. “He knows every inch of my face, my heart, my soul.”

In September 2023, multiple outlets reported that Sophia’s sons were by her side in the hospital after she suffered multiple injuries from a scary fall in her Geneva home.
