John Mellencamp's Daughter Teddi Jo Is All Grown up Now
Teddi Jo Mellencamp, the daughter of the 1980s pop sensation John Mellencamp, is not a little girl anymore. And you can tell she truly grew up as a beautiful woman if you visit her social media account.
Teddi Jo, the child of John from his marriage to Victoria Granucci, is one of the stars of Bravo's reality show "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." On July 31, 2019, she took to Instagram to announce the final night of the hit TV series' season 9.
"I was lucky to have trainers that kept me safe and organized and helped me reach my goals."
"Mood: Final night for #RHOBH Season 9 on @bravotv. Thanks to the women whom I've grown so close to, the amazing crew, my family-- basically thanks to everyone. Well, everyone except a few tweeters," she wrote.
Teddi Jo's life has never been ordinary as she grew up as the daughter of a famous father, according to The List.
However, she has figured out how to remain grounded regardless of spending her life rubbing shoulders with rich and prominent people.
Teddi Jo is known today for her show "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." But with hits like "Cherry Bomb" and "Hurts So Good" under her father's belt, she grew up with some quite enormous shoes to fill.
In addition to being an actress, Teddi Jo was something of a master on horseback. In fact, she was a champion rider. At four years old, she began riding a horse.
After her parents called it quits, it was the horses that helped her get through it. In an interview with Sidelines, she said:
"There are some kids that when that happens, they get a little lost, but riding gave me so much to focus on and so much positivity in my life I was unable to ever feel those moments."

When sh*t hits the fan, what’s your go-to response? I take immediate action in doing something that makes me feel good: Being active with friends. Bonding with my family. Confiding in people I trust. That way, I can do my best to embrace how I am feeling, release it and move on. 💕 #gratitude #family #love #selfcare
Teddi Jo spent much of her time hitting the road and going to competitions.
"My parents were very supportive and understanding," she said. "My parents understood that that's what I wanted to do, and I was lucky to have trainers that kept me safe and organized and helped me reach my goals."
On July 1, 2019, Teddi Jo opened up about plastic surgery and how getting in shape impacted her decision.
She shared a before and after photo of her dramatic weight loss transformation on Instagram. The actress was met with appreciation in the remark section of her post.

Today I turn 38-years-old. Photo on the left: my birthday during one of the many years I was truly struggling with taking care of myself when it came to health and fitness. I remember having to step on the scale at the doctor— and the tears when the doc said, “Teddi, you’re 5’3” and over 200lbs.” The me in that picture would do extreme fad diets, lose a bunch of weight and then gain it all back again. Picture on the right: Now, going into my 38th year with four years of consistent commitment to my lifestyle. Four years years I have been All IN— no yo-yo. And even when I do get a little “wild” (for instance, you may have seen me on #RHOBH in Provence 😂), I have the tools to reel it back in rather than letting myself unravel for week’s worth of choices that don’t work for me. I am grateful that at this age of 38 I now know that healthy living isn’t a diet— it’s a lifestyle. I am so blessed to be surrounded by an amazing team @goallinbyteddi who have also changed their lives and continue to help me stay committed to feeling my best. This support network is invaluable and one of the best gifts I could ask for. Thank you to my team of coaches, clients, family and friends who have gone All IN with me. 38 is gonna be the best year yet. #thebestisyettocome #allinbyteddi #healthy #committed
