Sofia Richie is a name that has been making headlines for quite some time now, especially following her wedding. Daughter of musician Lionel Richie, she has been in the public eye for years, but it wasn't until she started dating reality TV star Scott Disick that she really started making waves.


Born on August 24th, 1998, in Los Angeles, California, Sofia's the youngest of Lionel's three children, which includes Miles Brockman, 28, and daughter Nicole Richie, 41. Growing up in a household with a famous father, Sofia was exposed to the entertainment industry at a young age. Her father's success in the music industry meant that she was always surrounded by popular faces, but despite this, Sofia managed to stay grounded and focused on her own goals.


As a teenager, Sofia started modeling and quickly made a name for herself in the fashion industry. Her striking looks and natural talent made her a sought-after model, and she has since worked with some of the biggest brands in the business, including Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, and Chanel. In addition to her modeling work, Sofia has also dabbled in acting, making appearances in a few television shows and movies.


However, it was her relationship with Scott Disick that really put Sofia in the spotlight. Disick, who is best known for his role on the reality TV show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," was previously in a long-term relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, but the couple split in 2015. Disick and Richie started dating in 2017, and their relationship quickly became a hot topic in the media.


Despite the criticism that their age difference (Disick is 15 years older than Richie) and their different backgrounds received, the couple seemed to be happy together. They were often seen together at events and on vacation, and Richie even appeared on a few episodes of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" alongside Disick and his ex, Kourtney. However, in May 2020, the couple announced that they had split after nearly three years together. While they didn't reveal the reasons behind their breakup, sources close to the couple said that their different lifestyles and priorities played a role in the decision.


Sofia's Wedding Goes Viral


Sofia married Elliot Grainge on Saturday in a ceremony that took place in France. The wedding has been making the rounds on TikTok, especially with a focus on Sofia's sense of style and her status as the internet's new "It" girl. Vogue has dubbed the event as "this year's royal wedding," and fans have echoed the sentiment in the comments section of Sofia's first ever batch of GRWM TikToks, which she posted on the account she created the day before her wedding. One commenter even referred to her as "The People's Princess."


It was no surprise that the wedding's guest list was a mix of celebrities. Lionel Richie, father of the bride, was obviously present along her daughter Nicole Richie. Also present were Paris Hilton, Cameron Diaz, and Benji and Joel Madden. Other internet personalities also attended the wedding, which has led to tons of snippets and clips being shared on social media, both by guests and Sofia herself.
