It’s one thing to be the daughter of a famed personality and another to be a celebrity in your own right. When you are the offspring of someone as beloved and acclaimed as Howard Stern, things are bound to be a lot easier. As sweet as that may seem, Emily Beth Stern has managed to forge a successful career for herself, outside her father’s A+ reputation.
Emily is not just a celebrity’s daughter; she is an actress, singer-songwriter, and photographer who rose to fame following her dedication towards her career. You might be wondering why the actress isn’t dwelling on her father’s glory, well, you will find out soon enough.
Relationship with Her Famous Father
Emily is the first of three daughters born to Howard Stern. She was born on the 7th of May 1983 in Old Westbury, Long Island, New York. She’s three years older than her sister Deborah and ten years older than Ashley who was born in 1993.
Howard Stern married Emily’s mother, a former actress/psychoanalyst, named Alison Berns on the 4th of June 1978. The duo met during their college days at Boston University.
Emily Beth Stern Thinks Her Father Is a Narcissist
She had the typical upbringing of a celebrity child which is probably the genesis of her fall out with her father. Emily has grown to be an independent woman and usually has conflicting interests with Howard. According to the actress, her father constantly reminded her and her sisters that people were watching them. Although the radio personality has insisted he did this to protect his kids, Emily has upheld it as narcissism. She thinks her father is only interested in looking out for himself and only focused on his works.
There are reasons to believe that the relationship between Emily Beth Stern and her father deteriorated after he parted ways with her mother in 1999. The news of their separation came like a shock to their children, especially Emily who felt the divorce came out of nowhere. She would later express in an interview that the divorce and her father’s subsequent marriage to Beth Ostrosky in 2008, shattered her belief of being an icon to those who look up to her.
Nonetheless, she has been able to nurture a cordial relationship with both of her parents.
