She’s appeared here and there on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but in recent years, Amelia Gray Hamlin has been stepping into the limelight. While many have been introduced to her for the first time as Scott Disick’s new girlfriend, Amelia’s background in Hollywood dates all the way back to her birth. Scott and Amelia made it officially public in February 2021, although they’re reported to have been building their relationship as far back as October 2020. The duo stirred up some controversy due to their 18 year age gap, but despite media scrutiny, they’ve remained open about their love for one another. Though a recent fixture on the covers of tabloids and magazines, Amelia has been growing up and showcasing her life in Hollywood for over a decade. At 19, Amelia has proven herself as an up and coming starlet to watch, and has been vocal about the harrowing reality of eating disorders. Let’s dive into Amelia Gray’s life in the spotlight.
She shares a reality TV background with boyfriend Scott Disick
Many are widely familiar with Scott Disick — Kourtney Kardashian’s ex and co-parent — because of his antics and humour on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Amelia and Scott share reality television in common — her family was featured in their own reality series Harry Loves Lisa in 2010. This was followed by her mother, Lisa Rinna, joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast in 2014. Because of the show, Amelia’s most formative childhood and teenage years were exposed for the world to view and she has been open about the challenges she faced growing up in front of cameras.
Both her parents come from Hollywood fame
Amelia Gray’s family was really put on the reality television map through The Real Housewives franchise, however, both her parents come from scripted Hollywood fame. Amelia’s father is Harry Hamlin, best known for his roles in ‘L.A. Law’ and ‘Clash of the Titans.’ Her mother, Lisa Rinna, is known for her (iconic) role in the original Melrose Place, as well as her recurring role on soap opera Days of Our Lives. Amelia has not yet pursued any recent acting roles herself, but she was a voice actress on kid’s show Rachel & the Treeschoolers from 2014-2015. Whether or not she ends up following in the footsteps of her parents is yet to be seen.
