What We Know About Sofia Richie’s Relationship With Her Parents
Sofia Richie is a model, fashion designer, and social media personality. Her success in the fashion world should come as no surprise, considering both her mother, Diane Alexander, and sister, Nicole Richie, are fashion designers. While Sofia may have always been destined for success in the industry, it took her a while to find her calling due to the pressure of being Lionel Richie’s daughter.
“I spent a lot of time just trying to find my place in the world,” she told Town & Country on Aug. 15. “I think everyone wants to be like their parents when they’re growing up, and I admired my dad so much, and that drove me down a music path for a moment. But it didn’t feel right for me.”
Sofia also said she tried dabbling in acting but quickly realized it wasn’t meant for her, either. “I didn’t have the experience, and I didn’t want to be one of those kid celebrities that got the role because my dad is who he is,” she said.
In the end, Sofia decided to “just be [herself]” and find a career that she naturally gravitated toward, which led her to fashion.
While Sofia may not have pursued music like her dad, Lionel is equally proud of Sofia for finding her own passion.
