Famous people are kind of like your family – you think you know everything about them. But apparently, there are some things that remain hidden. Like the fact that some of the most famous people in the world were actually adopted. What would have happened if they lived a totally different life with their biological parents? Would they still have grown up to be the stars they are today? Who knows. Here are some of the most surprising celebrities who didn’t grow up with a conventional family.
The model and lead singer of the rock band “Blondie” was born Angela Trimble on July 1, 1945, in Miami. She was given up as an infant. At the age of 3 months, she was adopted by Catherine and Richard Smith Henry, a couple from New Jersey, who renamed her Deborah Ann Harry. Harry learned about her adoption at age 4, and in the late 1980s decided to locate her birth mother, a concert pianist, who chose not to establish a relationship with her.
