Andie MacDowell has three children with her first husband, Paul Qualley who was a rancher and former model. Their eldest is Justin, who was born in 1986 but lives a private life away from the spotlight.

Andie and Paul welcomed their second child, daughter Rainey, in 1990. Like her mother, Rainey pursued a career in show business. In 2012, Rainey made her acting debut on the film Mighty Fine, which also starred Chazz Palminteri and her mother.
