The Dynamics of Boston Russell’s Family Relationships and Juicy Bits About His Net Worth And Girlfriend

Life is full of several ironies and one of them is the issue of fame. Some people crave the spotlight and actively take steps to make the news while some others who have been naturally thrust into the spotlight as a result of their achievements or familial ties, do everything to avoid it. One person who falls into the latter category is Boston Russell.

Russell is an American media personality who is better known as the son of legendary Hollywood actor, Kurt Russell. Apart from his dad, Boston boasts of several famous relatives and as such, his name routinely gets dragged into the public sphere despite his best efforts to the contrary.

A Rich Parental Heritage

Boston Russell was born on February 16, 1980, in Los Angeles, California. He hails of a family that boasts of a rich Hollywood lineage; starting with his paternal grandfather, Bing Russell. Bing was a renowned TV actor who appeared in over 300 movies and TV shows between the 50s and 90s. He was also a one-time owner of the baseball franchise, Portland Mavericks. Bing passed away in April 2003 as a result of complications arising from cancer. He was survived by his illustrious son, Kurt Russell.

As you already know, Kurt is a legendary actor who has enjoyed an unparalleled Hollywood career. He first rose to fame as a child star in the 60s. He subsequently transformed into a Hollywood leading man and appeared in highly-acclaimed films such as Escape From New York, The Thing, Swing Shift, Silkwood, The Mean Season, Tequila Sunrise, Backdraft, Tombstone, Miracle, Deepwater Horizon, Fast and Furious, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Kurt’s career has fetched him several accolades, including a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. It also led to him meeting the two loves of his life, one of whom was Boston’s mom, actress Season Hubley. Hubley, a native of New York, commenced her acting career at the age of 21 and went on to feature in about 12 movies and 40 TV shows. She also tasted success as a musician.

Boston Russell’s parents first met while they were filming the TV movie, Elvis, in 1979. They got married that same year and their union lasted up until 1983. Following the divorce, Kurt commenced a relationship with his Swing Shift co-star, Goldie Hawn, in 1983. The couple has remained together till date and has welcomed one son, Wyatt, together. They have also successfully blended their respective families and have become one of Hollywood’s golden couples although they never tied the knot. Therefore, even though Hawn is not married to Boston’s dad, she is technically his stepmother, and her children; both Wyatt and the others before her relationship with Kurt, are technically his half and step-siblings.

Breakdown of Boston Russell’s Family Members

Boston Russell is one part of a blended family that comprises of his father’s partner, Goldie Hawn, her two children from a previous marriage; Oliver and Kate Hudson, as well as his half-brother, Wyatt Russell.

Hawn is an award-winning Hollywood thespian who first rose to fame in the 60s comedy show, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. She subsequently went on to have a successful career, featuring in movies such as Bird on a Wire, The Banger Sisters, and Cactus Flower (which fetched her an Oscar and Golden Globe award). Boston maintains a close relationship with his dad’s long time partner. The duo was spotted taking a stroll along the streets of L.A. in March 2020 amidst the coronavirus lockdown.

Hawn’s children and by extension, Boston’s “step-siblings”, have also followed their mother’s footsteps into acting. Son Oliver is most popular for his work on TV series such as Rules of Engagement, Nashville, Scream Queens, and Splitting Up Together. He has also scored some feature film appearances, notably the 1999 comedy, Out-of-Towners. Daughter Kate is even more famous and has appeared in popular rom-coms such as How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Bride Wars, Fool’s Gold, You, Me and Dupree, Mother’s Day, and Marshall. She has received several accolades for her work, including the 2001 Golden Globe award for best-supporting actress.

Kate has meanwhile revealed that the first time she met Boston was a big moment for her as she wondered whether he would now become her brother. Luckily, she got over her teen-induced misgivings and they have gone on to have a great relationship.

Lastly, concluding the Russell family unit is none other than Boston’s younger half-brother, Wyatt Hawn Russell. Wyatt was born in 1986 and initially pursued a professional career as an ice hockey player. He, however, had to quit the sport after a career-ending injury. Following that injury, Wyatt turned his attention to the family trade with maximum success. He has scored supporting roles in several movies, including Escape from L.A., Soldier, Overlord, 22 Jump Street, and Cowboys & Aliens.

The Financial Rewards of his Career

Boston Russell didn’t toe the line of his family members. He didn’t study theatre arts neither did he pursue a career in acting. He rather enjoys working behind the scenes and has lent his expertise to several projects like Executive Decision and 60 Minutes. His work has helped him to build up a small fortune but the exact amount is not known. What is however for sure is that the young man is definitely the heir to a huge fortune.

As of 2020, Boston’s father has a staggering net worth of $70 million. He majorly built up his fortune from a successful acting career, initially starting as a child star and later segueing into an adult action movie star. Another source of Kurt’s fortunes is his business endeavors. The legendary actor is the owner of some businesses, including a wine label known as GoGi Wines. GoGi Wines launched in 2008 and has both pinot noir and chardonnay.

Has Boston Russell Started a Family of His Own?

Just like many aspects of his life, Boston Russell’s relationship status remains an enigma. He has never been married nor engaged. He has also not been publicly linked with any romantic partners. It is however quite possible that he is dating someone away from the wandering eyes of the public.

Meanwhile, his siblings are moving ahead with their own love lives. His stepbrother Oliver is married to actress Erin Bartlett and they have three children; Wilder, Bodhi, and Rio Laura. Stepsister Kate, on the other hand, was married but is now divorced. She now has three children from three different relationships. Not to be outdone, the youngest sibling, Wyatt, was previously married to stylist Sanne Hamers, from 2012 to 2017. They later divorced and he found love again with actress Meredith Hagner, whom he married in 2019.
