Despite the unfortunate end of their romance, Cannon gave Grant the greatest gift in life. She gave birth to the legendary actor’s one and only child, daughter Jennifer, which Grant called his best production yet.

But what do we know about Jennifer?

Cary and Dyan divorced when Jennifer was just 2 years old. Despite the fact that her family fell apart, she managed to preserve a very close relationship with her father for the rest of his life.

Grant never wanted Jennifer to become an actress, so she tried other career paths, which included being a babysitter, stock clerk, waitress, and grocery store checkout cashier. After finishing studying at Stanford University, she even worked for a law firm.

She showed Grant’s gentle side that we haven’t seen before and people who knew him closely, as well as many devoted fans, will be eternally grateful for that.
