Harrison Ford Seen Fondly Looking at Adopted Son, 22, who Became His ‘Blessing’ in Old Age
Harrison Ford fell in love with Calista Flockhart, an adopted boy’s single mother, when he was 60. The actor from “Indiana Jones” worked hard to raise his beloved’s son. Later, the actor adopted Liam and attended his 80th graduation.
Harrison Ford, perhaps best known for playing the character of Indiana Jones in the “Indiana Jones” movies, had been loved by many generations. He has, however, not always had love luck.
Ford has been married three times, with his third marriage to Calista Flockhart seemingly standing the test of time. The couple exchanged vows in 2010 and share a beautiful family, which they recently celebrated.Flockhart and Ford celebrated their son Liam’s graduation this weekend. They watched proudly as their son, among other learners, received his college diploma and cane from Amherst College.
The school’s website gave a reason for the canes, explaining that they were a metaphor for the support learners received during their time there. After the ceremony, Flockhart and Ford posed for some pictures with their son. In one photo, Flockhart looked on as her husband and son beamed at the camera. Other photos showed Ford looking fondly at his son as he congratulated him on his big day.
A vendor at the market also snapped a picture of the actor while talking to someone and posted it on their Instagram page. They revealed how shocked they were to see him there and have him at their stall.
While many people focused on Ford, like those at the Farmer’s Market, the “Air Force One” star has focused primarily on his wife and adopted son since 2010. Their love for one another has carried through the years and weathered many storms.
How Did Ford Fall in Love with A Single Mom with an Adopted Son?
Although Ford and Flockhart have only been married since 2010, their relationship began long before. In fact, in 2003, Ford spoke up about his relationship with Flockhart for the first time, confirming:
The pair met at the 2002 Golden Globes, but Ford wasn’t looking for a relationship then. He said he sometimes felt lonely but didn’t want to do things only because he didn’t want to feel lonely. That was until he met Flockhart.
On the other hand, Flockhart had made a significant decision a year before the couple met. She wanted to adopt a baby, saying it had always been her desire. Talking about her baby boy, she gushed:
“I’m completely enchanted and awestruck.”
Yet this did not deter Ford from wanting to be with Flockhart. In fact, it gave him more to admire about his love. When asked what type of mother Flockhart was, Ford said she was the best because she had chosen motherhood and planned on raising Liam as a single mom.
Ford As a Father to Liam
Although Ford has other children, Liam is his youngest, and when the young man came into Ford’s life at Flockhart’s side, it made him less selfish. He also talked about what it was like to be the father of a young child again, saying:
“[Flockhart’s] brought a child back into my home. My youngest, other than Liam, is 17. It’s a wonderful opportunity to be part of a child’s growing up, which is always an endless springtime. You see the blossoming and the growing and the nurturing and the payoff.”
Ford’s Family Life After the Wedding
Ford proposed to his longtime love in February 2009, popping the question on Valentine’s Day weekend. The couple was on a family vacation with their son at the time.
