In the past, Beau Bridges has been one of those celebrities who’s had a lot of rumors circulating them. One rumor that has come up more than once is whether or not his children are adopted.
There have been reports from sources close to him claiming that he has adopted a few kids over the years. Other sources claim that they had a child born prematurely and given up for adoption.
But all this is just tabloid tea. Do you want to know whether the infamous Beau Bridges has adopted any children? Read on!
Beau Bridges was born in California in 1941, which makes him 75 years old. He is currently married to Wendy Treece Bridges. He has four children: Dylan (born 1977) and Ethan (born 1981), a daughter Kimberley Elizabeth Bridges born in 1988, and another son Jordan Scott Bridges born in 1991.
Family life seems to be an important part of this Hollywood actor. He even grew up in a big family himself! Beau has four sisters and two brothers, so it’s no wonder that his children all have such interesting names: Brooke, Garrett, Heaven, Emily, Kate, and Luke are the other members of the family tree.
It must be pretty cool to grow up with eight siblings – especially if you can get away with calling them “cousins” like they’re some celebrity entourage!
The Bridges seem like a very close-knit bunch; maybe we’ll see more pictures from adventures around town or at home where everyone gathers together after school/during weekends on Instagram sometime soon?

That’s quite the resume if you ask us! But this ageless Hollywood isn’t stopping yet!
