NEW YORK – Greek-American actress Tina Fey celebrated her 50th birthday on May 18. The New York Post’s Page Six featured the evolution of Fey in photographs from throughout her career including her time on Saturday Night Live from 1997-2006.

She was born Elizabeth Stamatina Fey in Upper Darby, PA, to a Greek mother, Zenobia “Jeanne” (née Xenakes) who was born in Piraeus, and father Donald Henry Fey, of English, German, Northern Irish, and Scottish ancestry.

Vogue magazine also acknowledged Fey’s milestone birthday, calling her “Comedy’s Queen of Style,” and featuring photos of Fey’s red carpet looks throughout the years.

Fey married pianist and composer Jeff Richmond on June 3, 2001 in a Greek Orthodox ceremony and the couple has two daughters.

Fey also made headlines recently for tearing up as she announced that $115 million had been raised for New York City COVID-19 relief in the telethon "Rise Up New York!" on May 11.
