Tina Denise Byrd is the third daughter of Tammy Wynette, who also has incredible musical talent. Here’s all we know about her.
When counting the legends of country music, one cannot skip the iconic Tammy Wynette. She was known far and wide and considered one of the genre’s pioneers. The talented singer had quite an eventful life, of which her children stand out as one of her most significant accomplishments.
Let’s look into the life of one of her children, Tina Denise Byrd.
Tina Denise Byrd’s Biography
Tina Denise Byrd is the celebrity daughter of legendary country singer Tammy Wynette and her first husband, Euple Byrd. She was born on March 27, 1965, in the US when her mother was only a young adult of 23 years.
Tammy married Tina’s father, Euple, when she was only 17 years old, much to the disappointment and disapproval of her parents. However, the young couple found a way to make it work and were married for about five years when they gave birth to their third child, Tina.
Sadly, Tina’s birth came with a whole lot more than they had bargained for. She was born prematurely after being in her mother’s womb for only six months. Due to her early birth, she weighed only 2 pounds and 3 ounces when she was born.
This is a staggering difference from the standard weight of a newborn, which should be nothing less than 7 pounds. As with most premature babies, Tina developed a complication a few months after her birth.
She was hospitalized and isolated in the hospital for about 17 days after the doctors diagnosed her with spinal meningitis four months after she came into this world. The hospital bills were a lot for Tammy as both she and Euple were not earning a lot of money.
Tammy eventually reached out to her family and borrowed several thousand dollars from her uncle to afford the hospital bills. Thankfully, Tina fully recovered and was allowed to grow into the beautiful woman she is today. She is currently 58 years old as of 2023.
Who Are Tammy Wynette’s Daughters?
The “Stand By Your Man” singer had four children during her lifetime, albeit from different men. All her four children were female, with a strong resemblance to their mother. They are Tina Byrd, Gwendolyn Lee Byrd, Georgette Jones, and Jackie Daly. Let’s meet them.
Gwendolyn Lee Byrd
The “Golden Ring” singer’s first child was with her first husband, Euple Byrd, and they named her Gwendolyn Lee Byrd. She was born on April 14, 1962, just a few years after her parents married.
However, only a little is known about Gwendolyn, as she loves to keep her life as private as possible. She has avoided the glitz and glamour of being a celebrity kid and is simply uninterested in the lifestyle.
Jackie Daly is one of the more popular Tammy Wynette kids. She is the second daughter of the singer, and her father is also Euple Byrd. The celebrity child was born on August 21, 1962, and is 61 as of 2023.
Jackie is one of the sisters who is quite active on social media. She often posts pictures and throwbacks of her mother and, sometimes, her sisters. Her family posts are on Facebook, Jackie’s most active platform.
Georgette is Tammy Wynette’s youngest child and is a step-sister to Tina, Jackie, and Gwendolyn. She was born in October 1970 to Tammy and her then-husband. George Jones.
The story of her parents’ relationship is still talked about to date due to the circumstances that surrounded every stage of their relationship. The duo met each other on tour in 1969 and got married a couple of months later in the same year. They also moved quite fast as their first and only daughter together was born just the following year.
Tina Denise Byrd’s Musical Talent
Just like her mother, Tina is a very talented singer. Her talent was discovered at a young age, making her debut on a joint album with her mother and stepfather. The album was titled “George & Tammy & Tina” and was a huge hit when released.
It is essential to mention that Tina was only eight years old when she recorded this album, whose songs charted high on the Billboard charts. She was featured on two tracks on the album “No Charge” and “The Telephone Call.”
Where Are Tammy Wynette’s Daughters Today?
The late country music star’s children are doing quite well for themselves today. Georgette went on to launch her music career, and with the support of her mother’s fans, she became a known name in the industry.
Jackie and Gwendolyn’s professions are unknown, but some sources say they are happily married and live humbly in the suburbs. Tina never took up singing after her young debut and is also living a quiet life away from the media.
All kids are reportedly rich thanks to their massive inheritance and investments from their mother.
