Mel Gibson, in full Mel Columcille Gerard Gibson, (born January 3, 1956, Peekskill, New York, U.S.), American-born Australian actor who became an international star with a series of action-adventure films in the 1980s and later earned acclaim as a director and producer.

Mel Gibson has appeared in dozens of hit films over his four-decade career, including Mad Max, Lethal Weapon, Braveheart, and What Women Want. He’s also been plagued by his fair share of Hollywood scandals. But the 65-year-old actor’s biggest role is one that may surprise you—he’s the proud father of nine kids!

Mel Gibson’s nine kids are from three different relationships. Over the course of his 30-plus year marriage to ex-wife Robyn Moore, the Oscar winner had seven children—Hannah, Christian, Edward, William, Louis, Milo, and Thomas.

In 2009, the Apocalypto star had a daughter named Lucia with then-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. And most recently, he welcomed his son, Lars, into the world with his current flame, Rosalind Ross.
