National Geographic star Alison Eastwood wed this weekend in Calabasas, CA. Her dad, Clint Eastwood, was in attendance as the animal rights advocate and producer married Stacy Poitras on Friday, March 15.
Animal advocate crusader Alison Eastwood, animal expert Donald Schultz, and activist Billy McNamara together collaborated on "Animal Intervention" for Nat Geo WILD, as they investigated cases of wild animals living in peril.
The team investigated cases of reported distress or abuse with exotic animal owners in question to discuss possible relocations to safe and clean animal sanctuaries. They also investigated cases of mistreated wild animals at magic shows, roadside zoos, and private ranches.
People magazine reported that Eastwood and her new husband met when Alison rode her horse to Poitras’ studio at the Rustic Canyon General Store and Grill in Agoura, Calif.
The couple announced their engagement five years later in 2012. Poitras told Westlake Magazine in their March/April issue about when he first asked Clint for permission to marry his daughter. “He looked at me for four or five seconds, which felt like 15 minutes, and then he said, “You’re going to have to take that up with her. I said, ‘Is that a yes or a no?’ And he said, ‘That’s a yes, and he shook my hand.”
The happy couple talked to People Magazine about their wedding day. “We are thrilled to be surrounded by our family for this very special day and appreciate their love and support as we begin our married life together.”
