Early Life

Jennie Garth was born Jennifer Eve Garth on April 3, 1972, in Urbana, Illinois. When she was born, her parents, Carolyn and John, each had three children from previous marriages, and Jennie was the only child they had together. She spent some of her childhood on an Illinois horse ranch, and the family moved to Glendale, Arizona, when Garth was 13. Jennie took dance classes and began modeling, and she was discovered by Hollywood scout and manager Randy James at a talent competition. She studied at Greenway High School and Apollo High School but dropped out during her junior year to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles (however, she did eventually receive her diploma in California).
