Billie Eilish Early Life
On December 18, 2001, Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell was born in Los Angeles, California. She is the daughter of musician and actor Patrick O’Connell and actress and teacher Maggie Baird. Eilish is of Irish and Scottish ancestry. She was conceived through in vitro fertilization. Her middle name, Eilish, was initially intended to be her first name, while Pirate was to be her middle name.
Baird taught Eilish and her brother Finneas the fundamentals of songwriting. Eilish said her mother and brother inspired her to get into music. Their parents encouraged the siblings to express themselves and explore whatever they wanted, including art, dancing, and acting. Eilish also performed at talent shows. Their parents wanted to spend time with them and give them the freedom to pursue their interests.
At the age of 11, she created her first “real” song for her mother’s songwriting class. Eilish had gone on some acting auditions, which she disliked; however, she enjoyed recording background dialogue for crowd scenes and worked on the movies Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Ramona and Beezus, and the X-Men series. Eilish also took dance classes until 2016, when a growth plate injury ended her dancing career.
Billie Eilish Career
The first songs they recorded together were “She’s Broken” and “Fingers Crossed,” the former written by Finneas and the latter by Eilish, who was then 13 years old. Finneas had been composing and producing music for a number of years and had his own band. She recalled, “We recorded them and released them on SoundCloud, just for fun.”
Eilish released the song “Ocean Eyes” on November 18, 2015. Finneas wrote, mixed, and produced the song; he had first intended for it to be used by his band, the Slightlys, but changed his mind after realizing Eilish’s voice would work better on it. When Eilish’s dance instructor at the Revolution Dance Center requested them to write a song for choreography, he gave it to her. The music was posted by the siblings to SoundCloud, where it was accessible to Diaz and downloaded. In two weeks, the song gained several hundred thousand plays, and Danny Rukasin, Finneas’ manager, contacted him to talk about Eilish’s potential. Rukasin believed that with Finneas’ assistance, she could succeed to a great extent.
Prior to moving out in 2019, Eilish shared a home with her parents in Los Angeles’ Highland Park neighborhood.  In 2021, she claimed that she continued to spend a lot of time in the bedroom she shared with her parents. She claimed to have depression, synesthesia, and Tourette syndrome , as well as other conditions. This includes a time when, according to her, she had planned to commit herself but was stopped from doing so by her buddy, the late American rapper and performer XXXTentacion.
Rapper Brandon Adams, better known by his stage moniker 7:AMP, dated Eilish. Since then, they’ve split up. It was revealed that Eilish was dating fellow musician Jesse Rutherford in late October 2022.
