Wynonna Judd Father – Wynonna Judd was born Christina Claire Ciminella, and for many years she mistook her father for Michael Charles Ciminella, her sister Ashley’s biological father (birth name: Ashley Tyler Ciminella).
However, Judd told Andy Cohen on his Sirius XM show that she found out in the early 1990s that her father was a man called Charles Jordan, who was Naomi Judd’s lover and departed when Naomi became pregnant with Wynonna.
Michael Ciminella, her mother’s brief marriage after being abandoned by her fiancé and Judd’s biological father, Charles Jordan, who died in 2000, gave her the last name Ciminella. Ashley Judd, her younger half-sister, is an actress.
Her biological father was never met by the country singer. She tells Larry King in a 2005 interview that she had planned to meet him approximately a month before his death in 2000, but never got the chance.
Naomi Judd and Michael Ciminella split in 1972, leaving Naomi to raise Wynonna and Ashley as a single mother.
