She was born as Stephanie Lynn Nicks on May 26, 1948, in Phoenix, Arizona. Nicks’ father, Jess was the president of a meat packing company, while her mother, Barbara was a homemaker. Her grandfather was a struggling country music singer, who taught four-year-old Stevie to sing duets. Stevie’s nickname came from her inability to pronounce her name, and she called herself “tee-dee.” Nicks wrote her first song at the tender age of 16, using a guitar she had received as a birthday gift and since then, there’s been no looking back for the talented star.

The marriage ended in divorce after just two months and Nicks stated, “We didn’t get married because we were in love, we got married because we were grieving and it was the only way that we could feel like we were doing anything.” Nicks is in contact with her step-son and has helped put him through college.

Although Nicks never married again, she had relationships with her Fleetwood Mac band members, guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood. She was romantically linked to the Eagles drummer, Don Henley, as well as songwriter, J. D. Souther. In 2007, Nicks publicly named Eagles guitarist, Joe Walsh as her greatest love.
