Audrey Hepburn was born as Audrey Kathleen Hepburn-Ruston on May 4th 1929 in Brussels, Belgium. She was born into a privileged family: her mother Ella was a Dutch baroness and her British father Joseph had a good job at a loan company in Belgium. Audrey also had two half brothers from her mother’s previous marriage: Ian and Alex. At age 5 Audrey entered a boarding school in England and it was there that she fell in love with ballet, a lifelong passion. But all was not well in the family: Joseph was a heavy drinker and left when Audrey was six. Little Audrey was devastated and begged for her father to have visitation rights. He eventually got them, but he never visited her.
