Liv Tyler was born on July 1st, 1977 in New York in the name Liv Rundgren.Her mom Bebe Buell, and her mom's life-partner Todd Rundgren, raised her as parents.
Liv thought her dad was Todd Rundgren.
Shortly after Liv's birth, her mom broke up with Todd and moved up with Liv to Portland, Maine. In her childhood, Liv was living discursively with her mom, her aunt Annie at Maine, and her grandmother Dorothea Johnson at Virginia. Already as a little girl, she loved to perform - dress up in her mothers cloths and make up and put on a show in front of her mother's friends. Liv insists that she was a normal kid, just incredibly tall compared to her class-mates and chubby ...
Liv Tyler found out that her real father is Steven Tyler at the age of 9. it was at an Aerosmith concert.
Liv began to suspect earlier: "I didn't know what it was, but I started to see him more, and it would mean so much to me
that I would write about it in my diary," she says. "I was very confused.", Aerosmith's concert put an end to the suspects.
Liv's half-sister Mia (the second daughter of Steven Tyler), whom Liv never saw before, was in that concert too.
When Liv saw that she looked remarkably like her, she had no doubt - Steven Tyler's daugher is her sister - which means that the man who's performing on stage is her father.
Later that evening, Liv's mom told her the truth: "I turned to my mom and said, 'He's my father, isn't he ?', and we went out under a tree and talked and cried for two hours."At the age of 12 Liv changed her last name to Tyler.
Liv - the person
Despite her star status and her fame, Liv is known by her "down to earth" attitude, charm and kindness. The word "arrogance" doesn't exist in her lexicon. Somehow Liv managed to keep her private life just that. The restraint has served Liv well, making her seem more mature than many of her peers and, perhaps, even her parents.She doesn't care for the nightclubbing high lifestyle and has said she envies her friends' college days.Not that she's unhappy. "A lot has happened these last couple of years. But it's exhilarating," she said in '96,"It doesn't feel like too much. At least, not more than I can handle."
