Chrishell Stause Parents: Meet Ranae Stause, Jeff Stause

Chrishell Stause was born on July 21, 1981, in Draffenville, Kentucky, United States, the daughter of Ranae Stause and Jeff Stause.

Stause lost both of her parents, Ranae Stause and Jeff Stause, around the same time as her divorce.

Her middle name “Chrishell” is a portmanteau word created based on the unusual circumstances of her birth: her mother went into labor at a Shell station, and an attendant named Chris helped deliver the baby.

However, in her book Strause denies the gossip about her birth. She mentioned that her mother had some car troubles and pulled into a gas station.

While waiting at the car station, she went into pre-labor and the car attendant genuinely helped her to reach a hospital.

Her mother Ranae died in July 2020, and her adoptive father Jeff died in April 2019. They both died of lung cancer almost a year apart.

Stause was born in a hospital. Before knowing that she was pregnant, her mother broke up with her biological father, who was half Japanese and half Spanish. Jeff is her stepfather.

Chrishell Strause missed a full year of middle school because she was forced to live in a tent. At that time, Strause mentioned washing her hair in the river, using food stamps, and hiding her life from classmates.

Her parents “struggled with addiction and mental health” and for a period joined the Worldwide Church of God when she was 10 years old.

Her mother never had a steady job and Strause describes her as a free spirit and self-righteous.
