British actor Ewan McGregor became famous at the age of 22 when he starred in the film Shallow Grave (1994). After the 1994 movie, he kept rising in fame until his breakthrough in the Scottish blockbuster Trainspotting (1996) won him critical acclaim.

Amidst his busyness as an actor, family is one of his topmost priorities. McGregor says the responsibility that comes with being a father is one that should be taken seriously. To him, making out time for his kids and trying to build closeness matters more than just being a parental figure. He definitely knows how to make his loved ones feel special; from his birth family, to his wife of more than two decades and his four adorable girls. Read on to know more about the sweet family of this Star Wars actor.

Eve is a French production designer and has been the love of Ewan’s life for over two decades now. The couple met on the Kavanagh QC TV series set in 1995, way before the celebrity actor became a big name in the industry. He knew almost immediately that he wanted to be with the five-year older French and not just like he has been with other women but in a more serious way. In a few months after meeting, the lovers were married in France and have remained in a blissful love bubble till May 2017. The news of their separation got to public on October 23, 2017 after Ewan was caught kissing fellow actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
They are notoriously private about their family life but are now proud parents to four daughters. While the Angels and Demons (2009) actor has mastered the language of love, his French skills are still below average. He understands a lot but has difficulties with speaking. His kids on the other hand speak the language fluently and even make fun of him with it.
Clara Mathilde McGregor (daughter with Eve Mavrakis)
Date of Birth: February 4, 1996
Zodiac Sign: Aquarius
Clara grew up in Hollywood and has mastered the art of dressing to kill. As much as she gets attention when she walks by, her outing doesn’t cause as much stare as her looks does. The aspiring photographer is unarguably easy on the eye. She launched her own photography website in 2014 and her pictures are primarily male and female nudity as well as self portraits and pictures of her parents who she refers to as her muse. She seems to be a blooming foodie too from her Instagram account.
In an interview, Clara admitted that since she was little, her inclination had always been towards photography. She always walked around with a camera as a child and enjoyed taking photos of things around her. When she clocked 14, she took her passion to the next level and started honing her craft and taking photography classes. She hopes to one day be able to work with Vanity Fair or Vogue. Acting was never for her as many would have expected, Clara would rather be behind the camera and her parents are highly supportive of her choice.
