American actress Diane Keaton is known for her outstanding acting in movies like Annie Hall, and The Godfather franchise among others. She has been the recipient of numerous awards like an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, and the AFI Life Achievement Award.
However, many of her fans get surprised to know that Diane Keaton never married but is a mother of two kids – daughter Dexter and son Duke, whom she adopted more than 20 years ago.
We will cover everything you need to know about her two kids in our article today.
Everything About Diane Keaton’s Kids
Diane acted in more than 60 movies in her career spanning more than five decades. She has been very candid about her personal life and never hesitated to discuss the choices she has made in life.
Diane once said about motherhood to Film Monthly saying, “Motherhood has completely changed me. It’s just about the most completely humbling experience that I’ve ever had. I think that it puts you in your place because it really forces you to address the issues that you claim to believe in, and if you can’t stand up to those principles when you’re raising a child, forget it.”
Dexter White (née Keaton)
Dexter White was adopted by Diane in 1996 when she was a toddler. Even though Dexter has not followed the footsteps of her legendary mom, she has accompanied Diane on red carpets occasionally over the years.
Dexter studied at the University of Arizona. She likes to stay away from the media glare and likes leading a private life. She is there on social media and at times keeps sharing her pics along with friends and family on her Instagram handle.
Last year she posted an adorable pic along with her sibling and mother with the caption, “I don’t have any current photos of my mom and I, so here’s a throwback with my brother and our wonderful nanny at the time Sandra! Also, peep my mom not wearing shoes, which is not out of the ordinary for her.”
Last year in June, Dexter married Jordan White.
According to a source close to the family now that Dexter is married, Diane is eager to play with her grandchildren.
The Book Club actress adopted her second child Duke after his birth in 2001. Duke is interested to follow her Mom and venture into the glamour industry but he is yet to prepare a roadmap to become a celebrity.
He was seen many times with his mom during fun shopping trips. They both were also spotted together a number of times at the beach in Maui.
Duke Keaton likes to spend time with friends and loves photography and modeling. His Mom also is passionate about photography. He also enjoys cooking. As a child, Duke has mostly been away from the media spotlight.
He shared a pic of his hanging out with Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora a couple of years ago.
He has an Instagram account with just 5900 plus followers where he posts pics once in a while.
