Here in this article, we will explore some untold facts about Clementine including her siblings and parent’s marriage.

Key Takeaways

  • Clementine Jane Hawk, a 15-year-old star kid, is currently studying in school. Besides studying, she also loves to sing.
  • Clementine is the third child of her father Ethan and the first of her mom Ryan. Her parents met when her mom Ryan was a nanny to her father’s two kids (her now half-siblings).
  • She has a younger sister Indiana Hawke who also sings like her. Further, Clementine is a sister to her two older half-siblings Maya and Levon Hawke. Both of them are actors.

Was Born Out Of Wedlock

The star kid, Clementine was born to her father Ethan, and her mom Ryan on July 18, 2008, in New York. During her arrival, her parents were yet to tie the knot. Jane was the first child that the couple shared together out of wedlock. Ahead of her birth, a close family member talked to People magazine and said,

“I expect that they should be very good parents, “They both love children, and they love each other … I know they are thrilled.”

As of 2023, she is 15 years old. Talking about her nationality, she is American and belongs to white ethnic background.

Hawke’s Parents Married a Month After Her Birth

A month later Clementine’s arrival, her parents Ethan and Ryan walked down the aisle. In June 2008, the couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in New York City.

Coming up to 2023, it’s been one and half-decade since the married duo is leading their marriage gracefully. Before Ryan, Ethan was married to his first wife Uma Thurman.

According to him, his first failed marriage taught him a lot which eventually helped him to make his relationship with his second wife better. In this regard, the Sinister actor once told

“Through the failure of my first marriage I learned a lot about myself,” Until you know yourself, you don’t know how to share your life with another person.”

Clementine’s parents first met when Ethan was still married with two kids and Ryan was a nanny to his two children.

Were Ethan And Ryan In A Extramarital Affair Before Coming Together?

When the Gattaca actor and Ryan publicized their relationship, many speculations were made that they were in an extra-marital relationship. At the time, Ryan was a nanny to Ethan’s kids from his first marriage.

When their relationship was caught up online, they became the subject of online trolling. But the actor denied it multiple times.

In an interview with Guardian, he gave a clarification on their affairs rumors and said,

After a short period of working for me, Ryan went back to Columbia to get her degree. There were never any scandalous thoughts or actions back then. In the years that followed, my marriage disintegrated due to many pressures, none of which were remotely connected to Ryan.

He further stated,

 The truth is by the time Ryan and I were falling in love, it had been a long while since I had employed her.


She has a younger sister named Indiana Hawke who was born on July 23rd, 2011. She is currently 12 years old and studies in school. Further, from her dad’s previous marriage, Jane has two half-siblings Maya Hawke and Levon Roan Thurman-Hawke.

Clementine’s older sister Maya, 25, is an actress best known for her character Robin Buckley in the Netflix thriller, Stranger Things. In the series, she appeared alongside Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, and many others.

Likewise, her other brother Levon is also an actor. He has acted alongside famous Hollywood actors like Tom Holland and Emmy Rossum in The Crowded Room, the Apple TV+ drama anthology. He is also into the fashion industry.

Her Older Sister Was Her Babysitter

Given the age difference between the siblings, it is fair to say that Maya used to babysit her sister. In an interview with People, Ethan claimed how his then 12-year-old daughter Maya was taking care of Clementine while their parents are away.

He mentioned how juggling between work and personal life is extremely difficult and how Maya has made it easier for her.

Clementine Was Quite Impressed By Her Father’s Acting In Moon Knight

While growing up, Clementine never showed interest in any of her father’s movies and series. But suddenly in 2022, when the trailer of Moon Knight came out, she was absolutely impressed. In this regard, her patriarch Ethan told,

“She watched it on her phone, she’s like ‘Dad, this looks really good.’ I mean her eyes just went [wide]; she couldn’t believe it. ‘That’s what the kids at school are talking about.’ So this is the first one that [impressed] her.”

The mini-series was released from March 30- May 4, 2022.

She Has Shown Early Interest In Singing

During the Covid lockdown in 2020, Clementine appeared together with her siblings and father in a jamming session. While his dad and big sister Maya led the song  “To Live Is to Fly,”  she and her younger sister Indiana joined in the harmonies like a chorus in the middle.
