Madison Pettis’ Age and Early Life
Madison Michelle Pettis was born on July 22, 1998 in Arlington, Texas, to Steven and Michelle Pettis. Her father is African-American and her mother is of French, Italian, and Irish descent.
Her Break Out Role with “The Rock”
Out of all of the Madison Pettis movies out there, there’s one that still sticks in everyone’s minds and that’s the 2007 Disney film, The Game Plan, starring Dwayne Johnson. The film was about one of sports’ toughest athletes ever, taking on the biggest challenge of his life —fatherhood. Johnson played the role of Joe Kingman, a superstar football player who is getting ready for his turn at the championship game, but has to take care of his 8-year-old daughter— Peyton Kelly (Pettis)— whom he never knew existed. As Joe gets closer to the big game, he begins to realize that being a father is the most important thing to him. This was Pettis’ break out role and 10 years later, she and Johnson were reunited on the red carpet premiere for Disney’s Moana. Madison Pettis’ net worth is estimated at $500,000.
Cory in the House
Pettis played First Daughter Sophie Martinez in the hit That’s So Raven spin-off, Cory in the House. In the show, Cory goes to Washington, D.C. with his father, who is head chef to President Richard Martinez. Sophie is considered America’s Angel and usually gets caught up in Cory’s schemes, as well as in a few of her own. It’s still her most popular role to date.
Madison Pettis’ Boyfriend
Michael Porter Jr. was born on June 29, 1998 to Lisa and Michael Sr., who is an assistant coach to Missouri University men’s basketball team, the Missouri Tigers. He graduated from Nathan Hale High School in Seattle, Washington. Michael Sr. signed a three-year- contract worth $1.125 million with a base salary of $300,000, plus and additional $75,000 in supplemental salary each year, according to the Kansas City Star. Michael Jr. stands at 6’10” and plays small forward, and has just been made MVP!
It’s unclear how long he’s been dating Pettis, but he confirmed their relationship during Tuesday’s (March 28) media day for the McDonald’s All-American Game at Chicago’s United Center. Although he’s not allowed to reveal how the two met, he was able to reveal how relaxed their relationship is.
“Part of it has to do with, she’s in the public eye and I’m in the public eye,” he said. “We realize that we’re both busy people, so we don’t have to always be texting. I could just give her a phone call at night and she’ll be fine with it.” Trust truly is an important building block to any new relationship, and these two seem to already have it all figured out!
The boy ❤
