Don Johnson’s Children: Meet The ‘Miami Vice’ Star’s 5…


Dakota, Jesse, Grace, Jasper, and Deacon Johnson are the five children of actor Don Johnson.

Don Johnson may be known for his performances as James “Sonny” Crockett in the 1984 television series Miami Vice and Nash Bridges in the 1996 television series of the same name, but to his five children, he is just dad.

The 71-year-old actor is the father of five children from current and previous partnerships. Don has three children with his current wife Kelley Phleger, whom he has been married to since 1999. Grace is 21, Jasper is 19, and Deacon is 15. He has Jesse, 38, with his previous partner Patti D’Arbanville. Don has a 31-year-old daughter Dakota with his ex-wife Melanie Griffith.

Don opened up about his “creative” and “fun” family, as well as the Johnsons’ Thanksgiving tradition of committing pranks, during a press junket for his 2019 mystery crime flick Knives Out.

“We are a very artistic, hot-blooded, explosive, hilarious, and difficult family,” he told Access Hollywood, adding that their annual holiday shenanigans had “become a little bit of a family thing.” Pranks would be played in some way. It could be a series of pranks, but they had to be harmless pranks, like weird bits of clothes showing up in your soup.”

What you need to know about the actor’s five children ahead of this year’s holiday shenanigans is included below.

Her credits include The Social Network, 21 Jump Street, and The Peanut Butter Falcon. Dakota is most recognized for her portrayal in the Fifty Shades of Grey flicks as Anastasia Steele.

Grace is Don’s second child with his current wife Kelley, a teacher. Grace is involved in the arts, despite not having a Hollywood career. She is represented by IMG Models, which also represents Gigi and Bella Hadid, Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, and Paloma Elsesser, among others.

Grace has worked as a model for Banana Republic, Goop, and Dakota Jinx, as well as Glamour and Santa Barbara Magazine. She’s also walked the runways, most recently for Christian Cowan x The Powerpuff Girls in 2019.

Jasper Johnson

Don and Kelley have a 19-year-old son named Jasper, who is one of Don’s youngest children. It’s unknown whether the teen uses social media, but his renowned father frequently sends him photos that provide him insight into his personality. He’s a huge sports lover who has gone to several Dodgers baseball games with Don. As indicated by his proud father’s previous films, he’s also a basketball player. Don posted a video of one of his son’s games from a few years ago, claiming that he had two dunks in one game.

Deacon Johnson

Don and Kelley have a second son, Deacon, his youngest kid (age 15). Deacon, like his older brother, is a baseball and Dodgers fan who would go to games with his father. Deacon has met late-night host Jimmy Fallon, as indicated by his father’s Instagram post. During the holidays, he and his siblings volunteer at homeless shelters. Don shared a photo of his kid and other children preparing food in a Santa Barbara shelter on Christmas Eve in December 2018.
