Sam was born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 5 January 1994 – his zodiac sign is Capricorn, and he holds American nationality. Sam is a firefighter, while he’s perhaps known best for being the son of the famous American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen.
Early life and education
Sam was raised in New Jersey alongside his older brother Evan James Springsteen, born on 25 July 1990, and his older sister Jessica Rae Springsteen, born on 30 December 1991, by their father, and their mother Patti Scialfa, a popular American guitarist and singer-songwriter.
Sam grew up being interested in music, but it didn’t take long for him to learn that he wasn’t as talented as his parents or his brother, who won the 2012 Boston College’s Arts Festival Singer-Songwriter Competition.
His sister Jessica is a successful equestrian, and she and her US team won a silver medal at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.

Sam is today working as a firefighter in Jersey City, New Jersey, but nothing else is known about his career.
Love life and wife
Sam prefers to keep the details of his love life away from the media’s attention, but it’s still widely known that he was previously in a relationship for around a year with the non-celebrity American Emilie Winter, who’s highly active on her Instagram account, and has uploaded more than 1,000 pictures onto the network.
While Sam hasn’t spoken of any other people whom he has perhaps been with, Emilie’s Instagram account is filled with pictures which feature her with her new boyfriend.
Some people have also claimed that Sam is perhaps in a relationship today, but prefers to keep his girlfriend away from the media’s attention; some believe that he’s married, but none of this has been confirmed nor addressed by Sam.
As of February 2022, he appears to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

Who is his father, Bruce Springsteen?
Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen was born in Long Branch, New Jersey, on 23 September 1949 – his zodiac sign is Libra, and he holds American nationality. Since he launched his career in 1964, Bruce has released 20 studio albums, and has been nicknamed ‘The Boss’.
He was raised in Freehold, New Jersey alongside his younger sisters Pamela and Virginia, by their father Douglas Frederick ‘Dutch’ Springsteen who was a bus driver, and who died in 1998 aged 74, and their mother Adele Ann who was a legal secretary and is now 96 years old. Bruce studied at St. Rose of Lima Catholic school, and grew up listening to Frank Sinatra on his father’s radio. He went on to attend Freehold High school, from which he matriculated in 1967, and then enrolled at Ocean County College, but quit after only a single semester. He was to fight in the Vietnam War when he was 19, but avoided service by failing the physical examination.
He saw the Beatles perform on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1964, and Bruce then purchased his first guitar, and founded the band The Rogues.
Tex and Marion Vinyard then helped him become the frontman of the rock ‘n’ roll band The Castiles, but it wasn’t until October 1972 that Bruce gained recognition, when he formed the E Street Band, and with them released his debut album “Greetings from Asbury Park, N. J.”
The same year saw him sign a contract with Columbia Records, and in September 1973, he released his second album “The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle”. On 25 August 1975, Bruce released his long anticipated third album “Born to Run”, which had taken over a year to record; it peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 Chart, which saw him featured on the cover page of various magazines, including “Time” and “Newsweek”. His fourth album “Darkness on the Edge of Town” was released on 2 June 1978, and was followed by his fifth album “The River” on 17 October 1980.
His 1984 single “Dancing in the Dark” was a huge hit, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Singles Chart, and in its music video, recorded live at his concert, Bruce could’ve been seen bringing a girl from the audience to dance with him on stage; she turned out to be the Courteney Cox, who was then contacted by several talent agents and became a successful actress, while she’s today probably known best for her starring role in the romantic comedy series “Friends”.
Bruce’s 11th album “The Ghost of Tom Joad” was released on 21 November 1995, while a couple of his following successful albums were his 12th, “The Rising” in 2002, his 16th “Working on a Dream” in 2009, and his 18th “High Hopes” in 2014.
Most recently, on 13 December 2021, Bruce sang at the benefit concert for children with autism, called John Henry’s Friends.
He’s also an author, having published his autobiography “Born to Run” on 27 September 2016.
In the ‘70s, he was in a relationship with the model Karen Darvin and the photographer Lynn Goldsmith, and the ‘80s saw him date the American former actress Joyce Hyser. Also in the ‘80s, he met Patti Scialfa, and she was invited to join the E Street Band in 1984; although it was widely believed that the two were dating, Bruce then met the American model and actress Julianne Phillips and began dating her. They married on 13 May 1985, but divorced four years later. Bruce then married Patti on 8 June 1991, a year after the birth of their first child, and they are today living on their horse farm in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey.
