Matt Damon is a Stepfather to Alexia Barroso
Matt Damon is actually a stepfather to Alexia Barroso. She was born in 1999, from a previous marriage of Luciana Barroso. Luciana was married to Arbello Barroso before she tied the knot with Matt Damon.
Luciana and Arbello Barroso’s marriage did not last very long. They divorced just a few years after their wedding. After the divorce, Luciana had to relocate to the United States with Alexia, where they met Matt Damon. Following the marriage of Matt and Luciana, the ‘Saving Private Ryan’ actor adopted Alexia as his daughter, so she is also legally his own daughter.
Matt Damon showers his daughter Alexia with the same love as his three other biological daughters. In 2011, Matt showed his protective side as a dad as he said he was concerned about Alexia growing up.
‘Like any father, I’m concerned a little about her [Alexia] becoming a teenage,’ Matt Damon said in an interview with the Radio Times, as per Daily Mail. ‘Because I know just what teenage boys are thinking.
Even Luciana Barroso’s ex-husband has a praise for Matt Damon’s love for his daughter. ‘I couldn’t possibly have asked for a better stepfather for my daughter than Matt,’ Arbello reportedly told Star in 2014. ‘He treats Alexia like she is his own flesh and blood. Matt has been an absolute blessing for my daughter.’
