Ten Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Adopted

American Country Awards 2011 - Arrivals

Kristin Chenoweth

When she was born in 1968 (I can’t believe she’s that old, but then again, I have a huge crush on Kristin Chenoweth so my judgment is probably really clouded), the Wicked and Glee star was adopted after being just five days old. Her adoptive parents, Jerry Morris and Junie Smith Chenoweth, named her Kristi Dawn Chenoweth and raised her in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Reportedly, Chenoweth claims that she is one quarter Cherokee from her biological parents.
