Along with his seven publicly known children, there have long been reports that Clint Eastwood fathered a child who was given up for adoption before he hit the big time.
Now the eighth child of Clint is seen for the first time, when the veteran actor's family came together to support him during the premiere of The Mule on Monday night.
Laurie Eastwood, as she identified herself with photographers, was surrounded by her seven younger brothers and sisters in a group photo.
She was also seen enjoying a drink with Clint, 88, when the two were chatting together at a reception at the Regency Village Theater in Los Angeles.
Clint & # 39; s youngest child, the 22-year-old Morgan Eastwood, apparently confirmed that Laurie was her sister when she celebrated the family reunion.
& # 39; SO RARE for all 8 Eastwood brothers and sisters to be in one room !!! & # 39; she wrote and posted a photo of the group on Instagram.

If Laurie is the previously reported adopted child, she is thought to have been born between the time Clint proposed and married his first wife, Maggie Johnson.
Her existence was first revealed by Eastwood biographer Patrick McGilligan, who said her mother was a young Seattle woman who had a serious relationship with the future star.
DailyMail.com reached Clint's office for clarification, but received no immediate response.
The actor was married to Maggie, now 87, from 1953 to 1984.
First time: Alison celebrated her brothers and sisters who came together on her Instagram. & # 39; I'm not sure if there ever was a picture of all 8 children together, but here it is, & # 39; she remarked
Special moment: Francesca also marked the occasion and added: & # 39; Love my siblings so much & # 39;
Alison Eastwood, the 46-year-old daughter of Maggie with Clint, plays the character Iris in The Mule and accompanies her family at the premiere, just like her 50-year-old brother Kyle.
This also applied to Clint & # 39; s 55-year-old friend Christina Sandera, who is 33 years younger.
The actor, directs and sparkles in the film, was shown wedged between his long-term girlfriend and ex-wife.
They were photographed as part of a larger family group, including three children from Clint, his granddaughter and several in-laws.
But it was the brother that was most surprising, with Clint's eight children from five women who all laughed happily while posing together.

While Clint was directing behind the scenes, The Mule marks its first leading role since 2012 with Trouble With the Curve.
The Mule is based on the true story of Leo Sharp, who was arrested in 2011 at the age of 87 with 200 pounds of cocaine hidden in his truck.
He had been carrying drugs for the Sinaloa cartel for over 10 years and was sentenced to three years in prison, but he only served one year because of his poor health.
Sharp died in 2016 at the age of 92.
