He has an older sister named Lilly (born January 22, 1981) and three younger half-brothers from his father's marriage to Kelley Kuhr. His stepfather is actor Ted Danson, who married his mother in 1995. Since 2014, McDowell has had a running joke at his mother Mary's expense, claiming on numerous occasions on social media that his mother is actually actress Andie MacDowell. As of 2019, Charlie is dating actress Lily Collins, the daughter of English drummer and singer Phil Collins. In September 2020, they announced their engagement.
