Date of Birth: March 2nd 1981
Conceived in Dallas, Texas – the source of her middle name – Howard was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Hollywood actor-director Ron Howard and writer Cheryl Alley. Her paternal grandfather is actor Rance Howard and her uncle is actor Clint Howard, while her godfather is actor Henry Winkler, who co-starred on Happy Days (1974) with her father.
Howard and her younger sisters, twins Jocelyn and Paige, and their younger brother, Reed, were raised away from the world of showbusiness. Their parents didn't allow them access to television and instead encouraged reading, outside play, and hobbies. Nevertheless, all four Howard children can be seen as extras in some of their father's films, such as in 1999's EDtv.
