'Michelle Pfeiffer' (qv) was born in Santa Ana, CA to Dick and Donna Pfeiffer. She has an older brother and two younger sisters - 'Dedee Pfeiffer' (qv), and Lori, who dabbled in acting and modeling but decided against making it her life's work. She graduated from Fountain Valley High School in 1976, and attended one year at the Golden West College, where she studied to become a court reporter. But it was while working as a supermarket checker at Vons, a large Southern California grocery chain, that she realized her true calling. She was married to actor/director 'Peter Horton' (qv) ("Gary" of _"thirtysomething" (1987)_ (qv)) in 1981. They were later divorced, and she then had a three year relationship with actor 'Fisher Stevens' (qv). When that didn't work out, Pfeiffer decided she didn't want to wait any longer before having her own family, and in March of 1993, she adopted a baby girl, Claudia Rose. On November 13th of the same year, she married lawyer-turned-writer/producer 'David E. Kelley' (qv) (creator of "Picket Fences and "Chicago Hope"). On August 5, 1994 their son, John Henry was born.
