Kristin Luckey was Billy Ray Cyrus’ Girlfriend in 1991 When She Gave Birth to Her Son Cody Christopher
Kristin Luckey and Billy Ray Cyrus first got to know each other in 1991. She worked as a waitress in South Carolina while he was a busy country singer touring various parts of the nation. One of his stops was in South Carolina, and they bumped into each other.
They briefly dated and parted on friendly terms. Luckey and Cyrus were later forced to reconnect after discovering that she was pregnant with their child. She later gave birth to a son named Christopher Cody Cyrus on the 8th day of April 1992.
Even though she may have held some hope that the pregnancy and childbirth may rekindle their romance, Kristin Luckey left Billy Ray Cyrus when she discovered that another lady, Tish Finley, was pregnant for him at that same period. She made a home for herself and her son in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, while Cyrus paid child support.
The singer had initially paid her hospital bills after their baby was born, and he committed to always providing for the little boy and being there for him. He regretted that they all couldn’t live under the same roof but promised to do his best all the same.
Luckey Majorly Raised Christopher Cody While His Father Paid Child Support
Billy Ray Cyrus did his best to keep to the promises he made to Kristin Luckey about their son. He consistently provided financial support while Luckey took care of their son in South Carolina. He also tried to include the boy in his own family. When Christopher was young, he regularly visited his father’s family. He got to interact with his famous half-siblings, such as Miley Cyrus.
They were quite nice to him, and he got to play a variety of games with them. Things sadly took a different turn when Christopher reached his teenage years. His father stopped reaching out to him regularly, and even when he made an effort through text messages and the likes, it would take his dad about two weeks to respond.
His father also forgot to commemorate his birthdays while his half-siblings got awesome gifts. The whole thing hurt Christopher, and it was left to Luckey to pick up the pieces. She made sure to provide reassurances to her son and voiced her displeasure at how Cyrus treated the young boy.
