Miley Cyrus was born as Destiny Hope Cyrus on November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, the United States, to a famous country-singer Billy Ray Cyrus and Leticia (Tish) Jean Finley. Her parents married the next year. She later changed her name to "Miley," the nickname she was given as a baby for often smiling. Against the advice of her father's record company, Cyrus's parents secretly married on December 28, 1993, a year after her birth. They had two more children together, son Braison and daughter Noah. From previous relationships, her mother has two other children, Brandi and Trace. Her father adopted them soon after the marriage. Her father's first child, Christopher Cody, was born in April 1992. He grew up with his mother, Kristin Luckey, in South Carolina.
