Harrison shares 55-year-old Benjamin and 53-year-old Willard with his ex-wife Mary Marquardt, whom he was married to from 1964 until 1979. He went on to marry Melissa Mathison in 1983 and they welcomed a now 35-year-old son, Malcom, and now 32-year-old daughter, Georgia, together. Their marriage also ultimately ended in divorce back in 2004.

The Star Wars actor is currently married to Calista Flockhart since 2010 and adopted her 22-year-old son, Liam, as his own. "I've got five kids in total, so it's not my first rodeo,” he told The Independent back in 2010.

“Yeah, obviously, I'm getting older, but I don't relate to it very much. It doesn't interest me as something to dwell on. I have a 9-year-old kid at home. I feel like the father of a 9-year-old," he also stated.

Harrison Ford's kids have carved out careers of their own.

According to People, Ben works as a chef and grew up playing baseball. He is married to his wife, Emily, and they share two sons together, Ethan and Waylon.

In addition to his ownership of Ford's Filling Station restaurant, he also wrote Taming the Feast: Ben Ford's Field Guide to Adventurous Cooking.

Finally, Liam, who was also adopted by his mother, Calista, attends Amherst College, per Hello! Magazine. The outlet notes he is spotted at times attending school events such as basketball games with his famous parents. People reported in a separate issue from August 2020 that Harrison and Calista were spotted dropping him off at college via private jet.

"It's a wonderful opportunity to be part of a child's growing up, which is always an endless springtime,” he previously shared.

"You see the blossoming and the growing and the nurturing and the payoff," he added. "Being a parent made me just a bit less self-centered. [Calista has] brought a child back into my home."

Harrison definitely makes a heroic father and grandfather!
