When you’re born into a family of stars, everyone expects you to become a star. This is the case of Ashley Jade Stern, the daughter of the popular media personality and “King of All Media,” Howard Stern.
Contrary to all expectations, Ashley is yet to step into the dazzling light of stardom as she prefers a private life. However, she could well be on her way there unknown to her with her crop of appearances in TV shows.
Ashley Jade Stern is the youngest member of the Stern Clan. She is the daughter of famous radio and TV personality, producer, author, and photographer, Howard Stern.
There’s more to Ashley Jade Stern than being the daughter of the rich personality behind the Howard Stern Show. Let’s spill the beans on Ashley!
Ashley Jade Stern Highlights
Ashley Jade Stern’s Age and Childhood
Ashley Jade Stern is the youngest daughter of Howard Stern and Alison Berns. She was born in the fifteenth year of the couple’s marriage on January 24, 1993. That makes Ashley 27 years old in 2020.
Ashley has two elder sisters – Emily Beth Stern, who was born on 7 May 1983; and Deborah Jennifer Stern who was born on 9 May 1986. As is typical of many lastborns, Ashley spent most of her childhood with her siblings.
Ashley, alongside her older siblings, came into the limelight since birth as a result of the fame of their father, Howard Stern. The sisters further bounced into media scrutiny when their parents filed for divorce in 2001. At that time, Ashley was just eight years.
Ashley Jade Stern’s Parents
Howard Stern got to know Alison Berns through their mutual friends back when they were studying at Boston University. The two hit it off nicely, with Howard admitting that he was certain Alison was the woman for him within a week of their relationship.
The lovers were both twenty-four years old when they tied the knot at Temple Ohabel Shalom in Brookline, Massachusetts. For personal reasons, though, Howard Stern took active measures to protect his children from the media and ensured that their personal lives are hidden from the public.
Considering that people saw the popular Howard Stern Show as controversial and indecent, you would see reasons why Howard decided to protect his children from the media. To support people’s view of the popular show, between 1990 and 2004, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) fined radio stations that aired The Howard Stern Show a total of $2.5 million for indecent content.
Nonetheless, this had nothing to do with the marriage of Howard and Alison. Until their divorce, many saw the couple as the perfect union. Well, the best things in life don’t last forever.
Howard and Alison divorced and after the divorce, Ashley’s mother remarried David Scott Simon on 23 November 2001.
Howard Stern, on his part, tried his hands on a couple of relationships, dating SI model and current actress Angie Everhart, and later actress-model Robin Givens.
He met Beth Ostrosky in 2000 and she turned out to be Howard’s final call. On 14 February 2007, Howard Stern announced his engagement to Beth on-air. Following this, on 3 October 2008 at Le Cirque Restaurant, New York, Howard got married to Beth Ostrosky who was 18 years younger than him.
When Howard and Alison’s marriage hit the icebergs like Jack and Rose’s Titanic, there was a squabble for who would take custody of the kids.
Ashley Jade Stern was only eight when her parents filed for a divorce. The custody battle that ensued between her parents was the talk of the town.
It was eventually decided that she was to live with her mother and stepfather. However, her father also offered to take full custody of her and her sisters.
Ashley Jade Stern’s Sisters
Ashley’s eldest sister Emily Beth Stern is a singer and actress. Emily Beth Stern had a short run as an actress and is mainly popular for appearing in the stage performance of “Kabbalah.” In 2012, she released her first album comprising of 11 songs, some of which gained positive critical praise.
Emily is also a devoted practitioner of Judaism and became a Torah Scholar after graduating from the Drisha Institute. She describes herself as a “Jewish Journal Blogger and Rabbinical Student.” Pretty impressive for the daughter of the host of an alleged indecent show, right?
Deborah Jennifer Stern, Ashley’s immediate elder sister, is married to her long-time boyfriend, Collin Christy.
The wedding ceremony was held on October 8, 2016, in California. Deborah has a degree in Humanitarian Services from the University of Chicago. She also has a Ph.D. in Reading, Writing, and Literacy from the University of Pennsylvania.
It looks like she wouldn’t be toeing the line of the big screens just like Ashley. But Ashley’s case is quite different, let’s see how.

Ashley Jade Stern has decided to keep her private life out of the news. Her relationship status is also well hidden from the public, even though she was seen with a man at her elder sister, Debra’s wedding.
Career-wise, you can say Ashley is somewhat following in her father’s footsteps. She started her acting career and appeared in her first role, albeit a minor role, in the 2001 movie, “When I Was Twelve.” She also appeared in a movie called “About a Girl.”
However, Ashley has had more success on television with more appearances on TV shows in various roles. In 2001 she appeared in a television show called Bob & Rose. The success she had with this role opened more doors for her.
Consequently, she has appeared in shows like Casualty, The Stratford Wives, What Little Girls Are Made of, and Blood Strangers. She has also made appearances on Anthem Alert, On the Run, Let Me Be Your Fantasy, Set You Free, and The Latest Success is in The Can.

Ashley Jade Stern is the youngest of the Stern family and quite reserved for a Stern. You wouldn’t blame her for choosing to lead a low-profile life as on growing up, her parents had done well to keep her and her sisters away from the eyes of the media.
Ashley, and her sisters, were dragged into the lens of media eventually when their parents were initiating the divorce process. Even though she was just eight then, Ashley’s life would never be as low key as she wanted it.
