Heather Locklear was a familiar face on our television screens during the 1980s and 1990s.
Back in the day, the actress, born in California, was sexy. She is perhaps best known for playing the glamorous Sammy Jo Carrington in the long-running television series Dynasty.
But are you aware that Heather has a daughter? And that her only child looks like her famous mother.
Heather Locklear, the bombshell of the 1980s, was born in Los Angeles in 1961; she is now 61 years old and still going strong.
She had her initial on-screen appearances in the early 1980s, and her big break came on the show Dynasty.
Heather as a child, resembled an angel with the face of a Disney princess, and her role as Sammy Jo Carrington catapulted her to popularity.
Indeed, some could claim that she was just another gorgeous blonde TV actress. Yet she had a strong personality on Melrose Place, and things seemed to get more thrilling as she appeared on the screen.
Heather can act, as seen by her four Golden Globe nominations for her depiction of the ruthless Amanda Woodward on Melrose Place. Yet, knowing her career without also comprehending her personal life is tough.
Heather was frequently seen in the arms of rock legends in the 1980s; she married Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, whom she divorced in 1993, and later married Bon Jovi lead guitarist Richie Sambora.
The pair married in a civil ceremony in New Jersey in 1994, followed by a formal wedding in France with family and friends. Nolan Miller, who designed the opulent costumes for Dynasty, designed the Melrose Place star’s dazzling white gown.
Heather and Richie were married for 13 years, during which time their only child, Ava Sambora, was born.
On October 4, 1997, Ava Elizabeth Sambora was born. I believe it is safe to conclude that she did not have a typical childhood. Ava was frequently spotted onstage with Jon Bon Jovi as a child. She sometimes presented them to the audience and even danced with the band members.
Her upbringing could easily have been a nightmare as the daughter of two big stars. Instead, it appears that she did well – Ava is a very smart and well-educated woman today.
She enjoyed being a cheerleader in high school.
“I enjoy being flung into the air!” “There’s an adrenaline rush,” she said.
Ava graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a GPA of 4.0. She then attended the University of Southern California to earn a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy.
The young lady has also dabbled in acting, seemingly following in the footsteps of her well-known mother.
The 25-year-old made her acting debut in the film This Is 40, and she walked the runway for her father’s clothing line, “White Trash Beautiful,” in 2010 during Los Angeles Fashion Weekend.
She recently shared a snapshot of herself with a bouquet of tulips while wearing a gown in 2020. Thousands of people commented on the post, remembering how much she resembled her well-known mother.
Ava, wearing a leopard-print dress and her long, blonde hair swept back into a ponytail, commented, “I enjoy flowers,” and tagged her friend Sarah Wermers.
“You are a wonderful beauty, taking after your beautiful mother!!” said one fan.
Some believe Ava has Heather’s TJ Hooker looks from back in the day based on recent images and videos.
“Oh my, she’s her mother; even her voice sounds like Heather’s,” one fan said when ET interviewed Ava.
Several people say that while Ava and Heather are attractive, they don’t see much resemblance.
Her 61-year-old mother recently posted a series of Instagram messages wishing her daughter a happy LMU graduation.
Overall, the 25-year-old blonde strikes me as a lovely young lady with sound priorities. She is said to be quite close to her mother. In 2018, the aspiring actress told US Weekly that she’d “want to follow in my mother’s footsteps” regarding her career.
Ava’s most recent acting credit came in 2020 when she co-starred with Selma Blair in the independent murder drama A Dark Foe. Perhaps this talented lady will make an appearance more frequently in the future!
Ava has not only found her soul mate but also succeeded academically and has a promising film career. According to SCMP, she is dating Tyler Farrar, an investment associate at Pacific Partners Real Estate Investments.
The duo has been dating since 2019.
When I see fresh images of Ava, it’s as if I’ve journeyed back in time because they bring back many great memories from the 1980s.
I mean, is it conceivable to receive DNA from more attractive parents? Maybe Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford?
Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora have nurtured this young lady incredibly well. Ava considers them mature and down-to-earth! Congratulations and best wishes!
