The iconic Cyrus family consists of several groundbreaking artists from Billy Ray Cyrus to his multi-millionaire pop star daughter, Miley Cyrus. Billy Ray gained widespread popularity after the release of his super hit single ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ which achieved triple platinum status in Australia.
Similarly, Billy’s kids also have fantastic careers in their respective fields. Trace, Brandi, and Noah are all accomplished artists. However, at the same time, there is one kid, Christopher Cody (aka Christopher Cody Cyrus) who has remained totally out of the public radar.
Cody once opened up about his relationship with his father Billy Ray and the rest of the Cyrus family, telling, “I’m on good terms but I don’t have a relationship with them really.”
Well, let’s know more about him and find out about his family, his current whereabouts, and more.
Christopher Cody Shares The Same Birth Year With His Half-sister Miley Cyrus: Who Is His Mother?
His mother is Kristin Luckey who was once a waitress in South Carolina. As for his date of birth, Christopher was born on 8th April 1992, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. And his age as of 2022 is 30.
Besides, at the same time, Billy Cyrus was also in a relationship with Leticia “Tish” Finley, an actress and producer. He welcomed a daughter, Miley Cyrus with Leticia, seven months after Cody’s birth on November 23, 1992.
After knowing that Billy was also expecting a child with another woman, Christopher’s mother Kristin was completely devastated. In an interview, the waitress recalled her utter heartbreak,
“He went on TV and announced that he had a beautiful baby boy and another baby on the way. And that’s how I found out about Tish being pregnant with Miley. My jaw just dropped. There was a lot of anger in me but we kept talking. Then Billy Ray went on TV and said he and Tish were getting married and she was pregnant again.”
Since then, Chris’s relationship with the Cyrus family, especially with his father became estranged.

Miley once said, “My priorities are my friends and my family,” referring to her father Billy Ray, mother Tish, and siblings. The wrecking ball hitmaker is yet to talk about her older half-brother Chris publically.
They met last time at a Miley concert near Cody’s home in Fort Worth, in November 2007. He recalled the moment,
“While she was on stage I was watching her from the sidelines. Afterwards we spent 20 minutes in her bus. Her voice is fantastic and I’m very proud of my sister.”

Although they are worlds apart, Christopher is always happy when he talks about his sister. Several years ago, he said,
“She doesn’t play the superstar in private. She’s a normal teenager having fun and she can laugh at herself.”
He further added,
“She’s the same now as she was before all this fame. She’s still my goofy sister. Miley is not a self-obsessed person at all. She’s just trying to have fun while working hard and I don’t know anyone who dislikes her.”
