Eric Clapton Sophie Belle Clapton Lyrics
Eric Clapton is a true legend of rock music. He steadily was ranked as one of the best guitar player by different magazines. The owner of numerous awards, Clapton became a true icon of rock and blues music. However, his personal life was not as smooth as his career path. He was married twice, but had children from different women. Let’s look at the guitarist’s closest people.
Eric was born in 1945 to Patricia Clapton, who was only sixteen at that moment. Thus, she left her son with her parents, who actually brought up little Eric.
Edward Fryer was a Canadian soldier, who had an affair with Patricia, and became a father to future rock star. Actually, the music legend has never seen his father, as Edward left Patricia before he was born.
However, Edward had another family in Canada. Thus, the musician has a half-brother Fast Eddie Fryer and two half-sisters Eva Jane Fryer and Sandra Fryer, which he has never met.
The rock icon first got married with Pattie Boyd in 1979. They were together for nine years, but their marriage hardly can be called happy. Being addicted to drugs and alcohol, Eric wasn’t a very good husband. He used to date other women, and even fathered two kids out of wedlock.
In 2002, he married his present wife Melia McEnery, who is much younger than legendary musician. First, they were just dating. But after a while Melia and Eric split up. The couple renewed their relationship and tied the knot in 2002.
Ruth Patricia Clapton is the eldest musician’s daughter. She was born in 1985 after Clapton’s brief romantic connection with Yvonne Kelly. Ruth remained a secret child until 1991.
Conor Clapton was born in 1986. His mother was an Italian actress Lory Del Santo. The famous guitarist was in relationship with her while being still married to Pattie. Unfortunately, the little boy tragically died at the age of five. The bedroom window was left open, and a kid fell out. The tragedy was a real shock to the musician. All his grieve Clapton expressed in his song “Tears in Heaven”, which later became a hit.
Julia Rose Clapton is singer’s first child with his present wife. She was born in 2001, before her parents broke up.
Ella May Clapton arrived in 2003, after the musician officially married Melia McEnery.
Sophie Belle Clapton is the youngest Eric’s child, who was born in 2005.
