Caden Crain: The Turbulent Life of Stormy Daniels’ Daughter
Stormy Daniels’ Fame and Controversy Thrusts Young Caden Into the Spotlight
Caden Crain was born in January 2011 to two famous and controversial parents – adult film actress Stormy Daniels and heavy metal drummer Glendon Crain. From the start, her life was chaotic and turbulent.
Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, made headlines in 2018 for her alleged affair with Donald Trump in 2006. She claimed Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen paid her $130,000 in hush money before the 2016 election to keep the relationship secret. This launched a media firestorm and brought Stormy Daniels massive public attention.
Throughout this, Caden was just 7 years old. Having a mother as famous and infamous as Stormy Daniels meant Caden’s life was far from normal. She was shielded from the public eye, but the constant media attention took its toll.
Caden’s Unstable Early Life
Growing Up With an Absent Addict Father and Famous Adult Film Star Mother
Caden’s parents split up not long after she was born in 2011. Her father, heavy metal drummer Glendon Crain, had substance abuse issues and was in and out of rehab during Caden’s early years. This left Stormy Daniels as a single mother trying to raise Caden while also managing her high-profile adult film career.
In 2018, when the scandal with Trump made headlines, Caden was suddenly the daughter of one of the most talked about women in America. Stormy Daniels was thrust into the center of a political maelstrom, and media outlets tried desperately to dig up details on her private life, including information about Caden.
To escape the media circus, Daniels moved Caden to a different school and had her live under a pseudonym to maintain some sense of normalcy. But the uproar took its toll on the young girl. She suffered from anxiety and loneliness as her mother’s career overshadowed everything.

Caden was also bullied at school as other children learned about her mother’s profession and scandalous past. This made Caden feel ashamed and isolated. The constant upheaval in her family life and mockery from peers took a heavy emotional toll.
By age 10, Caden was displaying signs of severe anxiety including panic attacks. She enrolled in therapy to help cope with her unstable world. Between her mother’s controversial career, her father’s legal and addiction troubles, and becoming a punchline among school bullies, Caden had endured far more than any child should.

Caden’s estranged father, Glendon Crain, also caused turbulence in her life. He had a long history of drug abuse and domestic violence. In 2018, he was arrested on domestic violence charges against Stormy Daniels. Their turbulent relationship and his legal troubles added more stress to Caden’s unstable upbringing.
In 2019, Caden’s parents became embroiled in a bitter custody battle over their daughter, with Stormy Daniels accusing Crain of being an unfit parent due to his drug addiction and criminal record. Their messy public feud only made Caden more of a tabloid target.

But still, her emotional health suffered under the weight of her unconventional and turbulent upbringing. The media spotlight on Stormy Daniels never dimmed, making it impossible for Caden to find real peace and stability.
Now a teenager, Caden continues to lean on therapy and the arts to process her trauma. She has a strained relationship with both parents. Stormy Daniels tries to give Caden a loving home, but her career and public image cast an inescapable shadow.

While Daniels has tried to shield Caden’s life from public view, privacy is difficult when her mother is so infamous. Tabloids still try to get information and photos of the shy teen girl who never asked for notoriety.
For Caden Crain, life has been an uphill battle. From growing up with an adult entertainer for a mother to having a troubled and absent father, her childhood was surrounded by turbulence. Through therapy and immersing herself in music, Caden tries to find calm in the storm. But the effects of her unconventional upbringing will stay with her as she comes of age under the harsh glare of the public eye.
