The Cyrus family is no stranger to the spotlight, with Miley Cyrus being one of the most recognizable pop stars in the world, but beyond Miley’s fame and success, there’s another member of the Cyrus family who tends to fly under the radar, her half-brother, Christopher Cody. Despite being part of one of the most famous families, Christopher has chosen a quieter life away from the spotlight. In this article, we’ll delve into the life of Christopher Cody, his background, and his decision to stay out of the public eye.
Early life, parents, and siblings
Born Christopher Cody Cyrus under the zodiac sign of Aries on 8 April 1992, which makes him today aged 31, a few months older than his half-sister, Miley. A native of South Carolina, USA, he holds American nationality and comes from a family of Scottish, Welsh, Irish and English descent from his father’s side. His father is Billy Ray Cyrus, a famed country music star and actor, known for his hit songs such as “Achy Breaky Heart”, as well as his role in the series “Doc”, and movies such as “Mulholland Drive” and “The Spy Next Door”.
Christopher is the result of the brief relationship between Billy Ray Cyrus and Kristin Luckey, his ex-girlfriend. Kristin worked as a waitress when Billy Ray met her, and that’s all that’s known about her. She prefers to live her life away from the media’s attention.
Despite being a part of the Cyrus family, Christopher’s upbringing was markedly different from that of his famous half-siblings. While Miley and her other siblings enjoyed both the privileges and challenges of growing up in the spotlight, Christopher Cody had a more private and low-key childhood. His parents separated when he was just a baby, and this early split played a significant role in shaping his life away from the public eye. His mother raised him by herself in South Carolina, although his father helped financially.
Besides Miley, Christopher has two half-siblings, namely Braison and Noah from his father’s marriage to Leticia Finley. Also, his father adopted two of Leticia’s children, Brandi and Trace. It isn’t clear if Christopher is in contact with them.
Education, what is he doing for a living?
When it comes to Christopher’s educational background, judging by his Facebook profile, he attended Keller High School, and upon matriculating in 2010, enrolled at the University Of Texas School Of Law, from which he graduated in 2014.
It seems that unlike his half-siblings, Christopher has chosen not to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, instead, he values his privacy, and while there is limited information available about Christopher’s professional pursuits, many believe that he’s working as a lawyer. It’s known that he currently lives in Austin, Texas.
Is he married? Love life
There is an Instagram account under Christopher’s name with a bio saying ‘My Official Instagram Page’, thus it’s assumed that he runs this profile. There is a photo featuring him, a woman whose name hasn’t been disclosed, and two little girls. Some of his followers commented saying that it’s ‘a beautiful family photo’, so it’s assumed that Christopher is married and that he has two daughters.
We couldn’t get the most current and accurate information on Christopher’s wealth, however, according to idolnetworth.com, he has a net worth estimated at about $1 million, while his half-sister, Miley Cyrus, has a net worth estimated to over $160 million. Their father, Billy Ray Cyrus, has a net worth estimated at $20 million.

Who is his half-sister, Miley Cyrus?
Born Destiny Hope Cyrus under the zodiac sign of Scorpio on 23 November 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee USA, Miley Cyrus is a multi-talented artist who has left an indelible mark on the entertainment industry. Known for her distinctive voice, boundless creativity, and fearless approach to self-expression, she has evolved from a Disney Channel star into a global icon. Her breakthrough role came as the lovable pop sensation Hannah Montana in the Disney Channel series of the same name, catapulting her to stardom at a young age.
One of the most remarkable aspects of Miley Cyrus’s career is her ability to reinvent herself continually. She burst onto the music scene as a sweet, country-tinged teen idol, but quickly shed that image in favor of a more provocative, edgy persona. Her 2013 album “Bangerz” with hits including “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop” showcased her newfound artistic freedom.
Miley’s bold, unapologetic approach to her career has sparked both praise and controversy. Her willingness to push boundaries, challenge societal norms, and express herself authentically has made her a symbol of empowerment for many. However, her provocative performances and sometimes controversial antics have also drawn criticism.
Beyond her music and public image, Miley Cyrus is known for her philanthropic efforts and advocacy work. She has used her platform to raise awareness and funds for various causes, including the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Plus (LGBTQ+) rights, homeless youth, and mental health. Her Happy Hippie Foundation, launched in 2014, is dedicated to supporting vulnerable and marginalized communities.
According to critics and her fans, Miley Cyrus is more than just a pop star; she’s an icon who’s consistently challenged norms and redefined her image throughout her career. Her willingness to be unapologetically herself, coupled with her commitment to philanthropy and advocacy, has left an enduring impact on the entertainment industry. Miley Cyrus continues to be an inspiration to those who dare to be different and stay true to themselves in a world that often demands conformity.
When it comes to her personal life, in 2015, Miley shared that she’s gender fluid. She dated many celebrities, including Nick Jonas, Justin Gaston, Patrick Schwarzenegger and Stella Maxwell, among many others. However, it was her relationship, engagement, and wedding with the famous “The Hunger Games” actor, Liam Hemsworth, which was in the spotlight for most of the time. They began their on-and-off relationship back in 2009, then after they rekindled their relationship in 2016, the two married on 23 December 2018, but separated in August 2019. The actor filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences, and it was finalized in January 2020. Then, Miley dated Cody Simpson for two years but it seems that Miley is currently dating a musician, Maxx Morando. Stand by for developments!
