Eastwood’s daughter weds

Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood gave away his actress daughter Alison Eastwood as she walked down the aisle on Friday to marry her longtime boyfriend Stacy Poitras.

The beloved film actor proudly gave away his little girl to her sculptor fiancé Stacy Poitras in an intimate evening ceremony in Calabasas, California.

The couple confirmed the news to People magazine on Saturday.

"We are thrilled to be surrounded by our family for this very special day and appreciate their love and support as we begin our married life together," the couple said.

Close friends and family gathered for the vows at Saddlepeak Lodge.

The bride, 40, wore a 1930s-inspired beaded gown by Les Habitudes.

Alison is Clint’s daughter with his first wife, Maggie Johnson. The matriarch was also present at the ceremony.

The 82-year-old actor has seven children with five different women and was joined by his wife, Dina, for the happy occasion.

Alison’s siblings, jazz musician Kyle Eastwood and actor Scott Eastwood, as well as her sister, Kathryn, were also present.

Alison and Stacy announced their engagement last year.

Stacy is best-known for creating large-scale wooden sculptures with chainsaws and is the star of US reality show Chainsaw Gang.

He described the intimidating moment he asked Clint for permission to marry his daughter in the March/April issue of America's Westlake Magazine.

"He looked at me for four or five seconds, which felt like 15 minutes, and then he said, 'You're going to have to take that up with her,'" Stacy recalled, adding, "I said, 'Is that a yes or a no?' And he said, 'That's a yes,’ and he shook my hand."

When others are at the helm, progress grinds to a halt. People deliberate endlessly over simple matters. Instead of putting pressure on the person in charge, make a strategic retreat. If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
