Mariel Hemingway, granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway

Actress Mariel Hemingway smiles for a photographer in New York City on May 11, 2009.

Mariel Hemingway is the granddaughter of author Ernest Hemingway. Her father, John Hadley "Jack" Hemingway, was the author's oldest son and his only child with his first wife, Hadley Richardson. (Jack Hemingway was the baby referred to as "Bumby" in A Moveable Feast, Ernest Hemingway's memoir of life in Paris. Please try to keep up.) Mariel Hemingway was born in 1961, so she turned 48 the year this photo was taken.
