Of Melanie Griffith’s four marriages, two have been to actor Don Johnson – he was her first and third husband. Melanie began dating Don, who was her mother’s co-star in the movie The Harrad Experiment when she was 14 and he was 22. They married for the first time in 1976 when Melanie was 19, but it lasted only six months. They got back together more than a decade later, and remarried in 1989 a few months before the birth of their daughter, Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson. They divorced for a second time in 1996 and Melanie married Antonio Banderas.
