Giancarlo Esposito had a special date when he attended the 2023 SAG Awards on Feb. 26: his daughter, Ruby Esposito. The duo enjoyed the award ceremony together and even snapped a sweet selfie on Instagram prior to walking the red carpet. Two days later, Ruby and her sister, Kale Esposito, joined their dad for «The Mandalorian» premiere in Los Angeles. Noticeably missing from both events were Giancarlo’s two other daughters, Shayne and Syrlucia Esposito, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t just as close with them.
Giancarlo shares his four girls with ex-wife Joy McManigal, whom he was married to for 20 years before their 2015 divorce. Despite their split, Giancarlo remains a dedicated father and has been vocal about how his children have changed his life for the better. «If you were to ask some of my buddies from an earlier time in my life, they might say it is universal payback,» Giancarlo told Best Self about being a father to four daughters in October 2022.
He added: «I have always loved women, and another surprising thing that people may not know about me is that I am a recovering womanizer. Today, I would rescript that and tell you that my girls have helped me reshape my relationship to myself, my lineage and others…and that’s a beautiful thing. They have taught me, each in their own way, the greatest gifts of my life — to pay more attention, to listen more, to respect women on a whole other level and to come clean. And they call me out all the time.»
