Melanie Griffith, a mother of two, is well-known for her eldest daughter, Dakota Johnson, who rose to fame in “50 Shades of Grey.” However, what do we know about her youngest daughter?
Melanie Griffith and Joe Johnson were married twice, and during their second marriage, they welcomed their daughter, Dakota Johnson. Unfortunately, the birth of their child did not strengthen their relationship, and they completely separated in 1995.
Not long after, while filming “Two Much,” Griffith met Antonio Banderas, and despite both actors still going through divorces (she from Johnson, and he from his wife Ana Lesa), a passionate romance sparked between them.
Soon, Griffith discovered she was pregnant, and on May 14, 1996, she and Banderas got married.
A few months later, on September 24 of the same year, they welcomed their daughter, Stella del Carmen Banderas Griffith, into the world.
Despite their separation in 2014, Griffith and Banderas maintained a strong relationship, particularly for the sake of their daughter.
Today, Stella is 24 years old and has grown into a stunning beauty, inheriting the best qualities from both her mother and father. Although she appeared in her first and only film back in 1999, Stella does not see herself pursuing acting, despite the influence of her parents.
Instead, she has established herself as a model and businesswoman, with Banderas even launching her own perfume.
