Steven Tyler's 4 Children: All About Liv, Mia, Chelsea and Taj (2024)

Steven Tyler is one of the most iconic rockstars in the world, first rising to fame in the 1970s as the lead singer of Aerosmith.

Off-stage, the "Sweet Emotion" singer is a dad to four children: daughters Liv, 47, Mia, 45, and Chelsea, 35, and son Taj, 33. Tyler has four grandchildren as well, who refer to him as "Papa Stevie."

While his children are all adults now and busy with their own careers and families, Tyler tries to get the whole family together for holidays. "Right now, I'm still really busy. Liv is in England — I went and saw her last year with the whole family. It's just a little hard," he told PEOPLE in January 2018. "We try to get together for Christmas and it's fun, it's beautiful. What we got is beautiful."

On Tyler's 70th birthday that year, his daughters all paid tribute to him on social media. "You're my favorite man to laugh with, to close our eyes, lean our heads back and shake em side to side when we eat something insanely delicious with, tell dirty jokes with, cry, hug, pet, be mad at, be happy with and most of all just love," Mia wrote on Instagram.

Liv described her rockstar dad as "a force to be reckoned with, a true inspiration and when you open your mouth to sing you light up the whole world," while Chelsea said, "I love you and thank god every day for you."

Liv Rundgren Tyler, 47

The eldest of Tyler's children, Liv Rundgren Tyler, was born on July 1, 1977, to Bebe Buell. Growing up, Liv believed that her mother's partner at the time of her birth, Utopia frontman Todd Rundgren, was her biological father. When she was 8 years old, Liv found out that Tyler was actually her father after attending one of his concerts with her mother.

"I kind of figured it out because he looked exactly like me," she explained during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show. "I have a sister named Mia who is a year younger than me and I saw her standing on the side of the stage at a concert and literally it was like like looking at my twin, she looked exactly like me. Then I looked at my mom and she had tears in her eyes."

However, Liv remains close with both Rundgren and Tyler and considers them each to be a father figure.

"Todd is my dad as much as Steven is," Tyler once said. "It just means a lot to me that I still have this beautiful relationship with Todd."

Liv went on to become a successful actress and has starred in countless movies, including the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Armageddon, Empire Records and The Incredible Hulk.

As for her personal life, Liv was married to British musician Royston Langdon from 2003 to 2009, and they share a son, Milo William Langdon. She began dating British sports agent David Gardner in 2014, and the pair got engaged in 2015.

With Gardner, Liv has two more children: son Sailor Gene and daughter Lula Rose.

Liv and her dad are very close, and Tyler is also an involved grandfather to her three children. In fact, he was by his daughter's side when she gave birth to Sailor Gene one month ahead of her due date in February 2015. The rockstar even cut the umbilical cord.

"When I got the call that Liv was going into labor, after crying like a baby myself, I immediately dropped everything and went to the airport to get on the next available flight," Tyler wrote on Facebook at the time. "I made it RIGHT in time before my second grandson entered this world. It was another (God wink) moment of a lifetime for me."

Over the years, Liv has shared tons of sweet photos of her children bonding with their grandfather.
