    Who Is Hannah Lynch’s Father? Details Of Her Age, Early Life

    Hannah was born to the TV personality Dorinda Medley and her first husband Ralph Lynch (a former investment banker) on December 26, 1993, in the UK. Similarly, Hannah was delivered at Portland Hospital, London. She spent most of her early life in London until her parents split.

    When she was still young, Hannah wasn’t a difficult baby, as long as certain conditions were met. Like every celebrity child, Hannah was raised in a decent environment.

    Dorinda told that when Hannah was born her aura felt something different, it was filled with joy, and no one can resist that.

    Her Health Issue: What Happened To Her?

    When Hannah was just a month old, she was diagnosed with Apnea, a temporary cessation of breathing, especially during sleep. One day her mother Dorinda invited a couple of friends over to their house in London to see Hannah. Around thirty minutes later, the RHONY star went to the kitchen to make some tea and kept Hannah in a bouncer.

    Suddenly, one of her friends started screaming. In an instant, she felt something had happened to her daughter. When she turned and looked, Hannah’s skin was blue and her tongue was sticking out of her mouth, as written in Dorinda’s book “Make It Nice“.

    Her Education

    In an interview with Refinery29, her mother said that Hannah, 29, first went to prep school with her castmate Ramona Singer‘s daughter, Avery Singer. Lynch has studied at a private, all-girls k-12 school named Convent of the Sacred Heart, in the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

    Afterward, Hannah went on to attend the same college as her father did. Her dad was a member of the 1986 class. The news was known only after Columbia College Today updated Hannah’s profile on their page.

    When Hannah’s step-father Richard Medley passed away in 2011, took a short break from her school.

    Hannah Loves Modeling and Writing

    Lynch has the same passion for fashion as her mother, though they have different style preferences. Hannah described her mother as “all about the sequins,” while she chooses designers like Alaia, Valentino, and Balmain.

    After scrolling down Hannah’s Instagram profile, a lot of her followers mentioned that she is a model or she should pursue modeling. However, it turned out to be the polar opposite. Hannah said,

    “It was something that I was pursuing for a little while.”

    She further explained,

    “It was something I thought about, but at the end of the day, I’m in school, I want to be a writer. It would be fun, but it would just take up a bit too much of my time.”

    Well, Hannah has shown more interest in writing than any other profession. She is also a big fan of the late novelist Harper Lee. When Lee died, Lynch shared a quote from Harper’s book, ‘To Kill A Mockingbird.’

    About Dorinda’s daughter’s professional writing career, BravoTV.com has mentioned,

    “I’m trying to be a writer. I’m an essayist. It’s very Nora Ephron-y, David Sedaris. But I’ve realized I’ve experienced a lot in my life, and I’ve grown up in an environment, especially with my mom, that I’ve seen a lot of things, I’ve experienced a lot of things, I have one hell of a voice. And so right now, that’s what I’m working on. I’m working on writing short, humorous non-fiction.”

    The only thing we could do now is wait and see what kind of amazing books she will write in the coming days.

    Dorinda Medley Calls Her Daughter Her Best-Friend

    In the book “Make It Nice”, Hannah’s mother mentioned several times that her daughter was more like a close friend than her child. Similarly, in an interview with Bravo’s The Daily Dish, the celebrity child stated that the mother-daughter duo shares a special bond.

    “I love being with my mom. She’s my best friend. Some people took our interaction last season as me being disrespectful, and it’s not that. It’s just that we’re so close that there is nothing I can’t say to her. And we’re best friends, so we really have a good time.”

    Hannah Lynch’s Parents First Met At A Wedding

    Hannah’s mom had an on-and-off relationship with several guys before meeting her then-future husband Ralph. But, at the time of their first meeting, she was single and waiting for an ideal partner.

    One day they crossed paths at a wedding and Lynch’s mother instantly fell head over heels for her first husband Ralph.

    At the wedding, Ralph was the one to start the convo, and his Scottish accent was something she fell for at first. Although Lynch’s mother could really sink her teeth into him, she never asked him out on a date. Throughout the night, they just talked and danced. Eventually, before leaving the venue, Ralph asked his ex-wife Dorinda out for a date.

    Dorinda describes her first hubby as mellow, grounded, handsome, and polite.

    Hannah Lynch’s Parents Married At the Same Church Her Maternal Grandparents Did

    After dating for some time, Hannah’s parents walked down the aisle in the place her mother Dorinda dreamed of. At some point, Ralph was moving to London, but before that, he took a walk to the barn in Dorinda’s backyard with her father and gently asked to accept their marriage.

    After receiving a ‘yes’ from him, Ralph took the car and went all the way to Philadelphia to get a beautiful ring for his now ex-wife Dorinda. In the end, he picked out a stone and set it in a simple silver setting.

    Finally, the lovely couple exchanged their vows at Blantyre Caste in Lenox, Massachusetts, in October 1995. It was the same church where Hannah’s maternal grandparents and great-grandparents were married.

    Her Parents Parted Ways After Six Years Of Marital Relationship

    After staying in a marital relationship for a decade, Hannah’s parents decided to part ways in 2005. But, at first, they began living separately as Hannah’s father Ralph ended up getting a job at Credit Suisse and an apartment in the neighborhood, in 1999.

    Hannah’s Controversy Surrounding Thigh Gap

    Back in 2020, Hannah unknowingly caused a major stir in the media when she shared a video on Instagram. In the video, she was telling her female followers how she hides her panty lines whilst wearing revealing tights.

    As the video went on, there came a time when she talked about being hippy, as in having a big bum, and also how she has an amazing thigh gap, which she absolutely adores.

    Her remark on her own body didn’t bode well with fans who openly called her out for encouraging girls to have unrealistic body expectations.
