Sofia Richie was born to Lionel Richie and his second wife Diane Alexander in Los Angeles, California on August 24, 1998. Her older siblings are Miles Richie and Nicole Richie. Michael Jackson, a singer, served as godfather to Sofia Richie. She recalled that her favorite childhood experiences included trips to Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch, and she grew close to his daughter Paris.
The pressure to live up to her father’s reputation in the music business, however, led her to abandon her plans for a music career. In 2014, she made several appearances in Candidly Nicole, a reality television program hosted by her sister Nicole.
Like her father, Richie developed a love of music as she was growing up. At age five, she began singing, and at age seven, she began piano lessons. She occasionally appeared at her father’s performances. She also received vocal training from Tim Carter when she was 14 years old. She also collaborated in the studio with Joel Madden, the lead singer for Good Charlotte and her brother-in-law.
Before receiving her education at home for several years while her father was on tour, Richie attended Oaks Christian School, also known as Celebrity High, for a short period of time. Until she broke her hip in a Segway accident at age 16, she played soccer.
Sofia Richie began her professional life as a model and fashion designer. She began her first job in an American Teen Vogue when she was 14 years old. Later, she was cast for an advertisement in Los Angeles by the Mary Grace Swim company. She continued to collaborate with numerous modeling agencies and major periodicals.
Finally, in 2016, Sofia made her runway debut during New York Fashion Week. Later, she appeared in advertisements for numerous brands, including Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, DL1961 & Michael Kors. On September 17, 2019, Sofia unveiled clothing lines with the name “Sofia Richie x Missguided”, with prices ranging from $20 to $100.
