Ruth Clapton is one of five children of Eric Clapton who is also a singer. Most of the time, Ruth is focused on her social media content and taking care of her two young boys.

No matter where he played or who he played with – wherever he was, Eric Clapton thrived in the industry as a musician.

Eric joined bands such as the Dominoes and Cream and Derek, but the guitarist still found success even when pursuing a solo career. Among his greatest accomplishments, however, remains his daughter, Ruth Clapton.

Eric was still married when he started seeing Yvonne Kelly, a married woman, in 1984. Their relationship resulted in their first daughter together, Ruth Kelly Clapton, in 1985. Ruth remembers her childhood:

“My parents met while they were both still married. They were separated from their loved ones, but both came back to them before I was born.”

Ruth Clapton is a mother, singer and fashion lover

Ruth is a self-proclaimed content creator focusing on fashion, lifestyle, makeup, and skincare. With just over 5,500 Instagram followers at the time of writing, Ruth has already shared over 900 posts. She is also a singer and proud mother of two young boys.

Ruth also maintained a blog where she shared several life experiences, including her big move to York in 2019 with her two children.

According to Ruth, the whole process took her three months – from selling their old house to moving into a new one. The choice of location depended on which school Ruth and her husband wanted their children to attend.

Ruth has had two stepfathers and a biological one in her life

Although Ruth’s family was a standard setup, it wasn’t the same thing she experienced growing up. She grew up with her first stepfather, who truly loved her and raised her well.

The feud caused father and daughter to sever ties, with Ruth going so far as to tell people they no longer had a relationship. After six years, however, father and daughter have made amends.

Unfortunately, they seemed to have separated due to Ruth’s close relationship with her biological father. “I can accept his absence because he was such a good father figure to me in my early years,” she said. “To be honest with him, there was never any animosity as such, more drift.”

When Ruth was ten, her mother married another man, her second stepfather. The man was allegedly unkind to Ruth and subjected her to verbal abuse, which later reflected in his life. Fortunately, Ruth had a close relationship with her mother.

Eric Clapton had a six-year feud with Ruth over a Kermit costume

As the daughter of an influential musician, Ruth knew some things about her father that others did not. In 2015, she opened up about her father’s 70th birthday party, where he wore a Kermit the Frog costume. She even shared photos of her beautiful home with her second wife, Melia McEnery.

However, the veteran rocker didn’t like having his life shared online and was furious with his daughter for doing so. The feud caused father and daughter to sever ties, with Ruth going so far as to tell people they no longer had a relationship. After six years, however, father and daughter have made amends.

Ruth isn’t Eric Clapton’s only child. He also has four other children, one of whom died in a tragic car accident. His name was Conor Clapton and he was born on August 21, 1986. Conor was only four years old when he tragically fell out of the bathroom window of a 53-story apartment.
