The secrecy about Liv’s paternity was decided when Buell was pregnant with Liv, Biography reported. Steven Tyler was a drug addict at the time, and Buell didn’t want her daughter growing up around that influence. She told Rundgren about the situation, and being a stand-up guy, he put his last name on the birth certificate — hence her growing up as Liv Rundgren at first.
Liv and Steven Tyler reconnected quite well, and Liv changed her last name to Tyler after the reunion, but her middle name is still Rundgren. Liv even appeared in several Aerosmith videos before making the leap to the big screen in movies like “Armageddon,” “The Incredible Hulk,” and “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, among several others. Her most recent work was the television show “9-1-1 Lone Star,” per IMDb.
According to Biography, Liv sees both men as her father. Some people would love to have a famous person as a parent. Liv Tyler gets to call two of them dad. That’s impressive, indeed.
