Makani Ravello Harrelson is the Youngest Child of Woodie Harrelson and Laura Louie
About 13 years after Woody Harrelson and Laura Louie had their first child (Deni) and 10 years after their second offspring Zoe was born, Deni Montana Harrelson made the Harrelson family members 5 in number on the 3rd of June 2006 under the Gemini zodiac sign.
Some reports have it that Makani was born in Maui, Hawaii, in the United States of America. However, this is erroneous. She was instead born in Ravello, a resort town by the Tyrrhenian Sea along Italy’s Amalfi Coast in the Province of Salerno, Campania region in Italy. This is in contrast to her elder sisters, Deni Montana Harrelson and Zoe Harrelson, who were both born in the United States of America.
Be that as it may, Makani is of mixed ethnicity as her mother is Asian while her father is of German, Scottish, English, Dutch, and Welsh, ethnicity. On the other hand, we know her family members are American by nationality, but it has not been ascertained if Manaki has dual citizenship (Italy and America), what with her birth in a western European country and residence in America.
Makani Harrelson was Homeschooled
