Michael Keaton's wife and his married life: Complete story here!
Michael Keaton was the first actor to play the black cape crusader in the 1982 first Batman film. After more than two decades, Keaton is reprising the iconic role in two upcoming, The Flash and Batgirl. Some of his best-known films over the years are Night Shift, The Paper, Mr.Mom, Birdman, Live From Bagdhad, and the recently-released Dopestick, a Hulu series for which he bagged a SAG award recently. Details about his career and net worth.
As an acclaimed public figure, Keaton is an Academy Award and BAFTA-nominated actor, but outside his A-list profile, Keaton has maintained a pretty regular and humbled lifestyle. Michael, 70, was born in Kennedy Township, Pennsylvania. Since rising to stardom with the 1982 film Night Shift and Mr.Mom, Keaton has been married once.
Michael Keaton's married life!
Since rising to international stardom playing Bruce Wayne in the 1989 original, Keaton has cemented and maintained an A-list career in the industry. While the actor's staggering versatile roles have surely rendered him enough experience of a married man, Keaton has seemingly been in strife with the socially constructed institution in real life.

At 70, the Pennsylvania-born is single and a father to one. Keaton was last married to actress Caroline McWilliams, who tragically passed away of multiple myeloma in February 2010. Keaton and McWilliam kept their personal life away from the spotlight, and hence very little are known about the couple's marriage.
Keaton and Caroline tied the knots in 1982 and welcomed their only son, actor Sean Douglas after a year. The couple's marriage seemingly lived its course when the Batman actor filed for divorce from Caroline in January 1990 and went on to co-parent their then 8-year-old son while leading a peaceful and exemplary life as an estranged pair.

Even after their separation, Keaton, who took a brief hiatus from Hollywood to raise his son, had nothing but love and respect for his ex-wife. Keaton later revealed he was struck hard by McWilliams' death, and processing the loss was more challenging than he thought. The actor branded Caroline as a "remarkable mom" and thanked her many times for bringing Douglas into his life.

Although there isn't knowing what actually goes in a celebrity's life or the kind of person one is behind all the sensational headlines and glamour, Keaton's low-key life and humble demeanor have left little room for any speculation. The Batman actor is single, but the actor didn't wholly steer away from romance after Caroline's death. He dated actress Courteney Cox from 1989 to 1995.
Michael Keaton's son!
Keaton often describes his only son, Sean Douglas, as his best friend. "Sean is a great guy because of her (Caroline), we've always been tight, but the bond's even tighter, we're family," the Birdman actor said about his relationship with Sean, 38, a songwriter and record producer.

Unlike his parents, Keaton has innate and honed skills in music and producing. He won a Grammy for his work on Lizzo's Cuz I Love You and has credits in Thomas Rhett'sDie a Happy Man,Demi Lovato's Heart Attack, and Selena Gomez's Rare. Sean married Rachel Bartov in 2014; the couple has one son. Fans had a little insight into the otherwise tight-lipped Keaton when he addressed his family in his award speech.
The actor took home a SAG award for his role in Hulu's Dopestick. Keaton opened his speech with the Russia-Ukraine conflict and reflected on a tragedy in his life. Dedicating the award to his sister Pam, Keaton revealed he lost his nephew to an opioid overdose. Keaton's recently-released Dopestick chronicles the nation's opioid crisis.
