Karina was Dustin's first child and was also adopted when she was three. Her mother was Anne Bryne. She is said to have a daughter named Bryce, who was born in 1993, and an English husband who she divorced named Simon Birkhead a chef. It's said that her relationship with Dustin is somewhat a troubled one by her friends as she felt second best to his natural daughter (Though it's unsure how true this really is). In April of 1998, while (possibly) living in Suffolk, England she was arrested for stealing more than 5,000 pounds while working for a British company. She was ordered to 180 hours of community service. It's said that she was desperate for money because of the breakdown of her marriage and the custody battle over her daughter and that she couldn't ask her father for anymore. The company came out with this statement concerning Dustin:
"Mrs Porcas said Hoffman-Birkhead had often spoken to her adopted father and had purported to be close to him. But after her offences came to light and she was arrested she had distanced herself from the actor. "They were really quite close. She was always talking about him and always on the phone to him," said Mrs Porcas. "And then when she got into trouble she suddenly wasn't so close. We never met him but we used to go to his apartment in New York. But that was when he was away."
It's said Dustin and his wife came out with a public apology to the company. You can read more about it in one of the links down below.

Jenna is Dustin's second daughter. Like her older sister, her mother was also Anne Byrne. She graduated from Bayard Rustin High School for the Humanities in New York City, the same place she was born. She's been in three of Dustin's movies, these being: Outbreak, Wag the Dog, and Mad City. She was also in the popular movie The Wedding Singer playing Cindy Castellucci.

Jake is Dustin's third child, first son, and the first child Dustin had with Lisa Gottsegen, his second wife. His birth was apparently stressful as, during labor, Lisa began hemorrhaging and even pleaded to the doctor if they couldn't save her, they had to save Jake.
"Jake was a month premature and born critically ill with Hyaline membrane disease [where a baby's lungs need urgent treatment because they aren't fully formed]."
Thankfully the two both survived. As he grew up, he attented New York University and was the DJ on Friday nights at a place called Guy's Bar, although it's said he hardly ever drinks. In 1998 his name became more well known for being seen dating with superstar Kirsten Dunst until they eventually drifted apart. Out of all his movie roles, his role as adult Ben Newman in Click seems to be what people best know him for. You can actually see a talent reel of him from Click Here. You should take a look. It's freaking crazy how you can sense Dustin's acting in his acting...does that make sense? He's been in four of his fathers movies. Hook, Rain Man, I Heart Huckabees, and Barney's verison.
Recently, Jake and Kirsten Dunst have been spotted again dating and it's said that Dunst is trying to clean up her partying ways for Jake. Jake is described as being, "a brainy homebody who’s into art and board games." and, "stable and focused."

Max Hoffman is Dustin's second and last son. Like his father and older brother, his interest seem to be in the movies. He's been in Hook and Meet The Fockers. Some of his more well known roles include a voice over he did for the Adam Sandler animation "Eight Crazy Nights," and starring in a season three epiosde of Ghost Whisperer. There was also a rumor out in 2008 that he was dating British singer Lily Allen. Dustin has also commented that Max seems to have grown up with no gender or racial discrimination. When talking about a friend over breakfast he never mentioned the boy was black which surprised his father. Dustin says he wishes he could be like Max in that way.
Born: October 27th 1987
Alexandra Hoffman (usually called "Ali" by her parents) is Dustin's last child. Like her oldest half sister, she was born in Los Angeles, CA. She's only been in one of her father's film, the film being Moonlight Mile where she played a young girl at a diner. Like Rebecca, not much is known about Ali. One thing that is interesting is the time she once helped Dustin save a seal that washed up upon the shore of their home.
