Is Aston Merrygold Adopted? Meet His Father Orjan & Siobhan Merrygold
Aston Merrygold is a gifted performer on the stage and the dance floor.
He is an outstanding talent who never ceases to amaze us.
Merrygold was born on February 13, 1988, to a Jamaican father and an Irish mother. Merrygold's parents divorced when he was a little boy.
He is one of seven kids—between his birth and stepparents, he has five brothers and a sister. His mother Siobhan and stepfather Orjan brought him up in Peterborough, where he was born.
Unlike most children whose parents are divorced, he did not miss any fatherly love, even though his biological father abandoned him and his mother when he was still a little child. His mother adopted Orjan Merrygold's last name after their marriage.
After his parents' divorce, his step-father adopted him because he also obtained the surname Merrygold.
Aston is an accomplished artist. Thousands of people all over the world follow him. Although Aston is not his biological son, his stepfather, Orjan, ensures he receives fatherly love like his other children.
Merrygold claimed that he enjoyed performing and dancing and that several TV appearances inspired him to start singing. During tryouts, he met Marvin Humes, a future bandmate, and the two kept in touch.
Moreover, he represented England in football while still in secondary school at the European Youth Games.
Despite being a world-renowned artist, only little is known about his family. The only information provided about his parents is their names. They undoubtedly helped him along the way to become the celebrity he is now, but it is unclear what they do for a living or where they are at the moment.
