Alexia Barroso is such a lucky girl. She is one of the few persons on earth who can say they have two loving dads and an amazing family – what more can a girl ask for. She was separated from her biological father at an early age but has got more than she ever asked for in a father, in her amazing stepfather. She is the step-daughter of famous Hollywood Academy Award-winning actor, Matt Damon and the biological daughter of Arbello Barroso, whose name she still bears. Let’s take a look at the outstanding bonding between Alexia and her two daddies.
Alexia Barroso Began Her Life In Argentina
Alexia Barroso was born somewhere in Argentina in 1999 to Argentinian parents and she has a Latin ethnicity. Both of her parents, Luciana Barroso (nee Bozán) and Arbello ‘Arby’ Barroso are immigrants from the working-class background. Her maternal great grandparents were originally from Italy but relocated to Argentina where they felt they could lead a better life.
A few years into their marriage, Alexia’s parents divorced, when she was only four. Their divorce was finalized in 2004 but the duo has remained friendly and still shares a healthy relationship between them.
Following her mother’s divorce from her first husband, she and her mom moved to the United States. Luciana, who was an air hostess and reportedly has an arts degree, sought to let go of her broken past and begin a new life in the US with young Alexia. Initially, her mother struggled to make ends meet as she worked as a bartender in a Miami bar. It was while at this job that she would meet the actor, Matt Damon, who would not only become her mother’s husband but her new daddy – which definitely lifted the clog on their survival.
Matt Damon had just come into the town for the shooting of the 2003 Farrelly Brothers’ slapstick comedy, Stuck on You. The wedding, which took place on December 9, 2005, at the New York City Hall, was a private one and had little Alexia Barroso in attendance. Her mother’s new husband, Matt Damon is one of Hollywood’s top earners and so the marriage brought with it a sort of financial security to the mother and daughter.
They renewed vows in a lavish ceremony in 2013 in a luxury hotel in Saint Lucia. The ceremony, officiated by late-night show host, Jimmy Kimmel also featured an elite guest list including Chris Hemsworth, Chelsea Clinton, Emily Blunt, and Ben Affleck.
Today, the little Alexia Barroso has grown to be a very beautiful and amazing woman. With an actor stepfather, she could go on to become a great actress in the future. She already has an acting credit but is currently in college.
She Has An Enviable Relationship With Matt Damon
Alexia Barroso shares a strong and sweet bond with her adoptive father, Matt Damon. He has not only caused a tremendous change in her status since he married her mother but has also given her opportunities she may have otherwise, only dreamed about. He enjoys spending time with her and is often seen doing fatherly stuff with her. He taught her how to drive, and in 2017, she was seen with him touring the American University campus. Alexia got her driving license in 2015. Damon is often seen cheering his soccer-playing daughter.
For the love of his daughter and family, the Bourne star brought Alexia Barroso’s entire class to South Africa when she was 10. He has a policy never to stay away from his family for more than two weeks. He funded their trip to study about Nelson Mandela while he shot his movie, Invictus, for seven weeks. Isn’t he sweet and loving?
Damon wears many hats in his career – one he has been in love with since he was a child – as an actor, film producer, and screenwriter. He is one of Forbes magazine’s most bankable stars as well as one of the highest-grossing actors of all time. His role in the film, Good Will Hunting, alongside Ben Affleck, earned him the Academy and Golden Globe Awards for Best Screenplay. Besides Alexia, the star shares three other daughters with his Argentinian wife; Isabella, Gia, and Stella. With an estimated net worth of $172 million, he spares nothing in taking care of his family.
Alexia Barroso got her first experience in acting in 2011 thanks to her incredible stepfather. She appeared with him in the Cameron Crowe directorial venture, We Bought a Zoo as a zoo staff. The family drama also stars Scarlett Johansson and Thomas Haden Church. If she goes on to become a great actress in the future, much of the effort will be credited to her great relationship with her actor stepfather, Matt Damon.
Her Relationship With Her Biological Father
Since Arby and Luciana got divorced, he holds no animosity for neither Luciana nor Matt, who has become his daughter, Alexia’s adoptive father. Rather, he feels nothing but deep respect for his ex-wife for being a terrific mom to their daughter and also for Damon, for taking her as his daughter as his own despite having three daughters of his own. He has maintained a good relationship with his daughter’s new family.
Speaking about Damon, Arby once mentioned in an interview that he couldn’t have asked for a better stepfather for his daughter. He also echoes what we thought, calling Matt Damon “an absolute blessing” for his daughter, Alexia Barroso.
Although he is rarely seen in his daughter’s life, the duo maintains a very good relationship. Also, he is incredibly proud of the amazing woman she has become. Unlike his ex, it is not known if the Argentine has remarried and has another family of his own.
A Loving Family – What More Could Alexia Barroso Ask For?
A family is not always created bonded by blood, sometimes it is defined by much more than that, just like the one Alexia Barroso has. Matt and Luciana have kids of their own which include Isabella (b. 2006), Gia Zavala (b. 2008), and Stella (b. 2010). Being the oldest, Alexia takes care of her sisters as her own family.
When it comes to family, the Ford v Ferrari star is all about his kids. He is fully a family man and is loving every bit of it. He takes out time off his busy schedule to catch his kid’s sports game, go on family dates and vacations. However, unlike his industry colleagues, he is media-shy and tries to keep his family from public scrutiny. He has not taken the credit for that but has lauded his wife for helping him lead an ordinary and simple life.
In August 2019, the star took his love for his daughters a step further by getting their names tattooed in cursive on his upper arm. The girls’ names are right beside “Lucy,” his tattoo honoring his wife, their mother. The family of six previously lived in New York before moving to Pacific Palisades in Los Angeles in 2012. They have been living in Australia since 2018.
Is Matt Damon’s Stepdaughter In The Dating Pool Yet?
Like every other father, Matt was concerned for his eldest daughter when she entered her teenage years because he knows just what teenage boys are thinking. But that was years ago. Alexis has left those years far behind her, so her father has little to worry about. After all, he has raised an independent and strong woman.
Probably due to the private nature of her family, there are no records to show Alexia Barroso on an official date with anybody. It is also not known if she has any romantic relationships or boyfriends. She is seemingly focused on her studies and would definitely take dating into perspective when she is ready and up to it.
