The adult daughter of Antonio Banderas resembles her renowned grandma in looks.

Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas separated in 2015 after nearly two decades of marriage, but they still cherish their time together.

Such was the case with the actress’ most recent social media post, in which she reflected on their life together during Holy Week in Spain.

Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is an annual commemoration of Christ’s passion observed by Catholics in many Spanish villages with beautiful processions as a sort of penance.

Melanie recalled how momentous the occasion was during her marriage to the Spanish Oscar contender from 1996 until 2015, sharing photos of the commemoration, which takes place between April 2 and 9 this year.

“During the 19 years I was married to Antonio, one of the many extraordinary experiences he gave to the kids and I was our introduction to and subsequent love for Semana Santa,” she wrote alongside them. “This is Holy Week.”

“It is an old and wonderful tradition.” During Holy Week, nearly a hundred thrones depicting Christ and the Virgin Mary are paraded through Malaga’s streets. From Palm Sunday until Easter Sunday, every day and night. This week is fantastic and mystical.

Melanie recalls Semana Santa with ex-Antonio.

“Many people follow behind these thrones on their sometimes eight-hour journey,” the 65-year-old continued. “I was brought to tears the first time I saw Cautivo. I consider it a spiritual experience.”

She shared her memories of the holy procession, writing: “So for many, many years, I was privileged to be one of the 30,000 people who follow behind him on his journey through the city.”

Melanie concluded with a heartfelt message to her ex: “I send so much love to my family and friends in Spain.” Caution, Caution! Live Spain! @antoniobanderas, gracias y amor [Thank you, my love].”

Melanie, whose mother is Tippi Hedren, and Antonio, 62, are the parents of Stella, who was born in 1996. Melanie previously married Stephen Bauer between 1981 to 1989, and the couple has a 37-year-old son named Alexander.

She was previously married to Don Johnson twice, once between 1976 and 1979 and again between 1989 and 1996. Dakoka Johnson, 33, is the daughter of Don and Melanie. From 1987 through 1996, Antonio was married to Ana Leza.

The year after their wedding, the couple brought Stella Banderas into the world. She was given the Stella Adler name in honor of her mother’s acting coach.

Stella was raised in both Spain and the USA. She was born on September 24, 1996, in Marbella, Spain. Stella is a native speaker of both English and Spanish, just like her well-known father.

Before filing for divorce in 2014, Melanie Griffith and Antonia Banderas were married for 18 years. Stella has good memories of her youth and has commended her mother for the ways in which she raised her.

“When I was a child, she wasn’t your normal mother. Nothing was actually off limits in our very open relationship. As a result, I developed a strong sense of trust with her, which gave me the confidence to express myself without worrying about being judged,” Stella told Vogue.

“Stella has gotten the best version of me as her mother, in my opinion, because she is my youngest,” Melanie continued.

Stella’s parents’ divorce was a terrible time, but she still maintains a good relationship with them. For instance, she frequently appears alongside her father on the red carpet.

Following in the footsteps of many of her relatives, Stella began studying acting in New York City in 2018 at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting. Unlike her older sister Dakota, her parents, and her parents, she has only appeared in movies as a young actor.

People assumed that her career could only go in one direction because her family comprised so many accomplished performers. However, it appears like Stella could wish to go in an entirely other order and break from her family’s tradition. She has done some modeling; she appeared on the cover of Glamour Spain in 2020.

The 26-year-old green-eyed beauty has inherited Tippi’s grandmother’s physical characteristics and captivating eyes. Even though Tippi is blonde, Stella looks to have the same slim and fit physique as Tippi. What do you think? Many people claim that she resembles a younger version of her grandmother.

It’s also good to see her developing and that she has inherited the family genes, whatever she chooses to do!

Isn’t she beautiful? Please send Stella your best wishes for a safe and successful journey!
