Martin Sheen's children

Many will know that Martin Sheen's son is actor and Two and a Half Men star, Charlie Sheen, born Carlos Estévez, with the pair often portraying father and son roles in various projects including Wall Street and Hot Shots! Part Deux. But Martin, who was born Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estévez, has three other children who are actors, too.

Emilio Estévez, Martin's first-born son, is perhaps best-known for his breakout role in 80s cult film, The Breakfast Club and The Mighty Ducks franchise. He's also appeared in Western films such as Young Guns and Young Guns II. Ramón, Martin's second son, is an actor and director whose credits include Cadence (alongside his brother, Charlie) and That Was Then… This is Now.

Emilio, Charlie and Ramón have a younger sister, Renée, who film and TV fans might recognise from her acting work in Heathers and MacGyver. She even appeared alongside her father as Oval Office assistant, Nancy, in The West Wing – in which Martin portrayed president Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet.
