The actor has one son from his marriage to Diandra Luker - , 31, who is currently behind bars on drug possession charges at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City.

After his divorce from Luker, Douglas, 65, went on to marry "Welsh" actress Catherine Zeta-Jones in 2000. They have two children together, Dylan, nine, and Carys, six - and Douglas is convinced becoming a dad again later in life has given him the chance to re-evaluate his priorities so he won't make the same mistakes twice.
