How old is Donna Mills’ daughter Chloe now? Tamron rerun renews interest


Television audiences switching over to see Tamron Hall interview veteran actress Donna Mills have been remarking on how good she looks, despite her relatively old age – how old is she, and what is her daughter Chloe up to now?

Donna Mills was 54 when she adopted her daughter Chloe.

She explained to Tamron Hall in an interview earlier this year that she would feel jealous “every time I saw a kid run up to its mommy,” and knew that she had “a lot to give a child.”

She’s now 81 years old, and doesn’t “plan to be long gone any time soon.”

What is the age of Donna Mills’ daughter Chloe now?

Donna Mills was 54 when she adopted her daughter Chloe, and is 81 now – that was in 1994, meaning Chloe’s age, at time of writing, is 27.

Born September 12, 1994, Chloe Mills will turn 28 in a matter of days. Donna became her adoptive mother when Chloe was just four days old, she told People in an interview in May this year.

“I was very concentrated on my career,” she said, “but at a certain point, I realized there was something missing – it was a child. So I went after it. I adopted her when she was four days old.”

“By that time,” she continued, “I was 54 and people said, ‘You’re going to be so old [to] have a little toddler running around.’ I never felt that. I never felt older than the other mothers who were probably in their 20s.”

Who does Donna Mills play in Jordan Peele’s movie Nope?

In Jordan Peele’s 2022 sci-fi thriller Nope, Donna plays Bonnie Clayton, a commercial actress.

But, in keeping with the bulk of the reportage about the film, this outlet isn’t going to reveal any more about the role.

She joins Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Brandon Perea and Michael Wincott, among others. 

Mills is still active in the industry. Since 2014, she’s been in 32 episodes of General Hospital; she is among the cast of TV series Abused – she plays Dr Karen Carden; and in 2019 alone, she racked up five separate on-screen acting credits.

What has Donna said about her decision to have a daughter age 54?

Her Tamron Hall interview came out at the end of May. During the course of it, Donna Mills talks about her decision to become a mother age 54, about what it was like taking an 18-year hiatus to raise Chloe, and about her motherhood journey in general.

“Now I would have the time to devote to a child,” she said, about how she felt in her mid 50s. 

“I’ve done things that I wanted to do. So I knew that I had a lot to give a child. And I wanted to do it. I was jealous every time I saw a kid run up to its mommy.”

“I knew my life wasn’t going to be complete until I had a child.” Previously, she said, she’d been “very focused” on her career, and she “wasn’t thinking about having a child, or having a family.”

But the yearning was there. Watch the full interview below. Jump to 3:20 for a picture of Donna and her daughter Chloe early on in their mother-daughter relationship.
