For the most of the 1980s and 1990s, Heather Locklear was a familiar face on American television.
Actress from California who became famous for her role as the gorgeous Sammy Jo Carrington on the hit series Dynasty and is still recognized across the world for it.
I didn’t realize Heather also has a daughter. How about the fact that her one and only child shares an uncanny resemblance to her famous mother?
Heather Locklear, the 1980s bombshell who was born in Los Angeles in 1961 and is still going strong, turned 61 yesterday.
In the early 1980s, she had her first screen appearances, and the show Dynasty gave her a major break.
The role of Sammy Jo Carrington propelled Heather to fame, as her childlike appearance evoked images of a Disney princess.
Maybe you think she was simply another gorgeous blonde TV actress who didn’t amount to much.
Yet her fierce persona made things more exciting whenever she was on screen in Melrose Place.
No one ever doubted Heather’s acting ability after she received four Golden Globe nods for her portrayal of Melrose Place’s heartless Amanda Woodward. But, her professional life is hard to grasp without delving into her personal life.
Heather was frequently seen in the 1980s with rock stars including Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and Bon Jovi lead guitarist Richie Sambora, both of whom she later divorced.
The pair wed in a civil ceremony in New Jersey in 1994, and then celebrated with family and friends at a more elaborate ceremony in Paris.
The designer of Dynasty’s opulent outfits, Nolan Miller, crafted the candlelight white gown that the Melrose Place star donned.
Heather and Richie had their daughter Ava Sambora throughout their 13 years of marriage.

On October 4, 1997, Ava Elizabeth Sambora entered the world.
To say that she did not have a typical upbringing would be an understatement.
Ava was a regular sight onstage with Jon Bon Jovi when she was just a kid. She would occasionally introduce them to the crowd and even get up on stage to dance with the musicians.
Her unusual upbringing, as the daughter of two famous people, could have been a disaster. Ava, however, seems to have turned out just fine; she is now a highly educated and exceptionally bright adult woman.
She felt most herself when she was a cheerleader in high school.
“I like being thrown in the air! It’s an adrenaline rush,” she told Teen Vogue.
Ava earned a 4.0 GPA and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Loyola Marymount University in 2020.Copy
Following that, she enrolled at the University of Southern California to earn a master’s degree in marriage and family counseling.
The young lady has also tested the waters of acting, seemingly following in the footsteps of her renowned mother.
The 25-year-old made her acting debut in This Is 40 and modeled for her father’s “White Trash Beautiful” brand at Los Angeles Fashion Weekend in 2010.
Recently, she posted a picture of herself online in 2020, wearing a frock and clutching a bouquet of tulips. Others commented on her post dozens of times, all saying how much she looked like her famous mother.
Ava wore a leopard-print frock and pulled her long blonde hair up into a ponytail for the photo, tagging her pal Sarah Wermers and writing “I like flowers.”
One follower commented: “You truly are a stunning beauty, taking after your beautiful mother!!”
Recent pictures and videos have led many to conclude that Ava now shares Heather’s TJ Hooker good looks from back in the day.
“My gosh she is her mother, even her voice sounds like Heather’s,” one person commented when Ava was getting interviews by ET.
Although though Ava and Heather share a similar aesthetic, some people don’t detect a strong similarity between the two.
Her mother, who is now 61 years old, posted a series of photos to Instagram in which she expressed her delight in her daughter’s accomplishment of graduating from LMU.
The 25-year-old blonde appears like a kind, focused person. It is said that she and her mother share a particularly close relationship.
The aspiring actress told US Weekly in 2018 that she would “love to follow in my mother’s footsteps.”
Ava’s most recent film role was as the lead opposite Selma Blair in the 2020 indie crime thriller A Dark Foe. Hopefully, this wonderful woman will be featured in more upcoming works.
Ava has discovered her love on top of her stellar academic performance and budding cinematic career. SCMP claims that she is dating Tyler Farrar, an investment associate at Pacific Partners Real Estate Investments.
The couple have been dating since 2019.
Looking at recent photos of Ava is like taking a trip down memory lane for me, full with fond recollections from the ’80s.
Could you possibly inherit more attractive features from your parents? A possible pair would be Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber.
There’s no doubt that Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora did a fantastic job as parents.
Ava is a real-world, sensible young lady. Thank you very much, you have my undying admiration!
