Tess Holliday: Family Life

Tess Holliday was born on July 5, 1985, as Ryann Maegen Hoven. Tess Munster is another name for her. She is from Laurel, Mississippi, in the United States. She is now 35 years old and belongs to the Cancer zodiac sign. Doug Hoven is her father’s name, and Beth Tadlock is her mother’s.

Unfortunately, her mother abandoned her father when she was very young. As a result, she says her family relocated forty times before she turned ten years old. Her mother was still crippled and injured after her fiance shot her twice in the head in June 1995. Her fiance was charged with attempted murder as a result of it.

Tess was bullied starting in fifth grade because of her weight and fair skin, her disabled mother, and the fact that she and her family lived in a trailer behind her grandparents’ home. As a result, she dropped out of high school at the age of 17 and received her GED.

Journey of Life

Tess auditioned for a plus model casting call when she was 15 years old in Atlanta, Georgia. She was told that because she was too small and tall, she would be fortunate to do print ads or catalog work. She later moved to Seattle, where she worked as a make-up artist, head make-up artist, hairstylist, and artistic director at fashion shows for two years.

Similarly, she returned to Mississippi when she was 20 years old, gave birth to her son, and later moved back to Seattle. In 2010, she relocated to Los Angeles. Meanwhile, she was working as a receptionist at a dental office in Los Angeles when she decided to become a professional model in 2011. Tess was chosen as a model for Torrid’s ‘House of Dreams Model Quest.’

She’s also been tagged on “fatshion” websites, models accessories, and plus-size clothing lines, and was asked to audition for Vh1’s “The Big Girls Club.” She has also been published in ‘Vogue Italia’ and ‘Nylon magazine.’

She also mentioned that she is working on creating her own clothing line. She took part in a fashion shoot for the December 2015 cover of Marie Claire UK in November.

In January 2016, plus-size retailer ‘Penningtons’ announced a collaboration with Tess to release a capsule collection under their mblm label bearing her name.
