She was born Amelia Fiona Driver on January 31, 1970 to Ronnie Driver, a successful businessman, and Gaynor Millington, a designer and former couture model. Her parents separated when she was 6, but it wasn’t until she was 12 that she discovered that her father had been living a double life with a second family. Her desire to learn more about her father’s family takes her to England, where she finally gets to meet a relative from her father’s side for the very first time.
