John Wayne was married three times and each of his wives were of Hispanic descent.
John Wayne was married three times, and two of his marriages ended with divorce. All of John's wives were of Hispanic descent: Josephine Alicia Saenz, Esperanza Baur, and Pilar Pallete. Wayne's split with Esperanza Baur was the stormiest one: While under the influence of alcohol, Esperanza even attempted to shoot Wayne, as she was sure her husband had an affair with his co-star Gail Russell.
John Wayne had four children with his first wife Josephine and three children with Pilar. Some of them entered the film industry, following their father's footsteps.
