 The Truth About Harrison Ford’s Children

Harrison Ford met his first wife, Mary Marquardt, while he was studying English and philosophy at Ripon College in Wisconsin, per People. They got married in 1964 and welcomed their first child, Ben Ford, in 1967.

While Harrison found success in Hollywood, Marquardt became an illustrator, per Epicurious. Ben would grow up to pursue passions of his own. He originally wanted to be a professional baseball player, but after an injury derailed that dream, he enrolled in the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco.

Ben credits both of his parents for sparking his interest in cooking, telling the Daily Mail that he learned a lot about the craft while visiting his father in Hertfordshire, England, where the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark” was being filmed. “At weekends we always seemed to go to someone’s home, never to a restaurant, for a Sunday roast. I watched everything,” he recalled. And while speaking about his mother’s influence on his career path, he told Life + Times, “My mother and her friends always involved me in their cooking projects. We also always had a garden and I think those two things were the catalyst for my passion for cooking.”

In 2003, Ben told The Baltimore Sun that his then-3-year-old son, Ethan, was following in his footsteps by helping out in the kitchen “every day.” Ethan’s mother is Ben’s ex-wife, producer Elizabeth Winkler. Ben later married a fellow foodie named Emily, and they welcomed a son named Waylon in 2010.
