Paulina Kathleen Myers Is A New Yorker By Birth; What Is Her Ethnicity?
Paulina Kathleen, the third child of Mike Myers and his wife, Kelly Tisdale was born on Nov 2, 2015, in New York on Monday. Some months earlier, in Nov 2014, talking about her impending birth on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Mike said,
It is the happiest time in my life.
The ex-SNL star added,
I always wanted to have kids. I always thought I would like it, of course, I didn’t know I was going to love it. I was very nervous.”
While her maternal ancestry is a bit unclear, from her father, Mike’s side, Paulina is of English and a small amount of Welsh descent. Her paternal grandmother, Alice Bunny E was a data processor and her grandmother (Mike’s father) was an insurance agent; they were both from the Old Swan area of Liverpool. They both also served in World War 2.
There Aren’t Many Images Of Paulina
Despite mentioning his children including Paulina, Mike has never revealed any clear-cut images of his kids. Although the actor has a few or two posts and images on his Instagram handle, Myers is yet to show a single glimpse of how his children are growing up.
Who Is Paulina Kathleen Myers Mother; Her Relationship With Actor Mike Myers
Paulina’s mother and Mike Myers’ wife, Kelly Tisdale is an ex-coffee shop owner; she had co-founded Teany, a Lower East Side hipster cafe in New York.
Tisdale, who is now 45 years old, was also a scenic artist having worked in the art department of the 1994 animated series, Erotic Confessions. She and Myers have been together since the mid-2000s.
The parents of Paulina, Spike, and Molly started dating in 2006 and four years later they married in the fall of 2010. Myers and his wife, Kelly, however, kept the news of their wedding private for around five to six months. After the marriage, Tisdale and Myers would have three kids, one of them being Paulina.
Paulina Siblings; They Have A Bit Unusual Names
As mentioned Myers and Tisdale are parents to three kids, Paulina and her two elders siblings, Spike and Sunday Molly.
During Paulina’s birth, her brother, Spike was four and her sister, Molly was 18 months old. The eldest child of Myers and Tisdale, Spike Myers was born Spike Alan Myers on Sep 29, 2011.
Paulina’s older brother, Spike got his name because Myers and his wife, Kelly apparently liked how the name was so common in Liverpool England. Also Spike’s father, Mike reportedly is a fan of Irish English poet and comic, Spike Milligan.
On the other hand, Paulina’s elder sister Sunday Molly was born on April 11, 2014. For Sunday’s name, Mike and his wife, Tisdale focused on the thing that they hated.
Myers during his interview with David Letterman in April 2014, said they named their first daughter Sunday because he and his wife apparently hate Sundays. And by designating it something as beautiful as their daughter, the couple wanted to make it a good thing.
Paulina’s sister, Sunday’s middle name, Molly comes from Myers’ aunt from Liverpool who also had the same first name.
While two of their kids’ names have some stories behind them, it is unclear why Mike and his wife, Tisdale went with a more traditional name for their baby no 3, Paulina.
Paulina Kathleen Myers Didn’t Like Her Father, Mike Myers’ This Famous Film
The 2001 Ogre comedy animated film, Shrek and its sequels have managed to gain quite a number of fans over the years. However, the film lead star, Mike’s own children including his youngest daughter, Paulina are not so much of a fan of this particular work.
In an interview with SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show, in May 2022, the 59-year-old actor, Mike revealed while all three of his kids had watched his famous film franchise, The Shrek, the children just didn’t end up loving it.
During the conversation, Mike said his one son and two daughters, Molly and Paulina instead loved Cat in the Hat from The Shrek but didn’t really care for the movie’s titular character. Paulina and her siblings also didn’t like the film.
And it was… it’s absolutely true. And, but I have tough, these are tough New Yorkers.
said the Pentaverate star. Saying a bit more about the subject, Mike said when his children, Paulina, Spike, and Molly watched Shrek, they afterward came up with some adult Esque criticisms. According to the Wayne’s World actor, his kids said, “Dad that would never happen. A talking donkey would never say that.”
Mike attributed his children not liking Shrek to the typical attitude of New York’s tough crowd. This apparently is especially true for Myers’ youngest kid, Paulina.
And my youngest is… and she’s not a fan. She’s tough. She’s a New Yorker this kid.
stated the father of three. Mike says this might be allegedly due to some deep-seated skepticism that the New Yorkers have.
Paulina Knew How Famous Was Her Father At A Very Young Age
While most celebrities do their best to avoid telling their kids that they are famous as late as they could. Myers however has apparently told his kids including Paulina how famous he is and what he actually does.
In fact, the Emmy winner in an interview with Good Morning America, in June 2018, said he told about his career to his children when they were quite young. Explaining the reason behind the revelation, Myers said,
a lot of the jokes will fly over their head
And apparently, Myers’ decision to tell his professional life to his kids has something to do with his daughter, Paulina’s specific question which she asked her actor father on a random day when Myers and his kids were out strolling.
According to Mike, when one day he and his three kids were walking on the street, Paulina ended up hearing Myers’ fans shouting “Yeah Baby” to her actor father. This allegedly made Paulina ask Myers why people would call him so. She reportedly also told to her, “But I am the baby.”
Myers when talking to Good Morning America, implied he made his decision to tell his kids about his acting fame after that very particular incident although the Inglorious Bastards actor says he had thought about doing so from the beginning. He also mentioned the fact that Danny Harrison didn’t know his father, George Harrison was in The Beatles until he was about 11.
Paulina Kathleen Myers Is Born Into Richness; What Is Her Father, Mike Myers’ Net Worth
Paulina sure qualifies as one of the luckiest kids for being the daughter of a well-recognizable celebrity. Not only that but her actor father also has quite a lot to show in terms of money.
The Shrek actor Myers apparently has an estimated net worth of over $200 million. And considering his more than five decades of an acting career, that should hardly be a surprise. As a matter of fact, Paulina and Spike’s father often make the list of one of the wealthiest actors in Hollywood.
