Oklahoma-based lawyer and celebrity child August Anna Brooks, is widely-known as the second daughter of the famed American country music singer-songwriter Garth Brooks.
Age, Early Life, and Education Background
August was born under the Taurus zodiac sign on 3 May 1994, in Oklahoma, USA, and is 27 years old as of early 2022. Her parents are the abovementioned singer, and his wife Sandy Mahl who presently works at Oklahoma’s Wild Hearts Ranch wildlife rehabilitation center. August was raised with her elder sister, Taylor M. Pearl Brooks, who was named after two singers, Minnie Pearl and James Taylor, and her younger sister, country music singer-songwriter Allie Colleen Brooks.
August was six years old when her parents divorced in 2000 – however, they remained close to raise their children together. August went to Owasso High School, and matriculated to the University of Oklahoma in 2012, graduating with a law degree in 2016.
Hobbies and Interests
Anna is a fitness fanatic, who is very keen on her diet and avoids junk and fast food; nonetheless, she has admitted that she loves eating pies. She likes to travel, and has toured many US destinations for work as an attorney, and leisure. She passes her free time playing video games and watching films. She also likes dancing, and apparently is good at it.
Anna briefly worked as a criminal defense attorney at a law firm located in Oklahoma, soon after she graduated. She then took a break to focus on her family, after becoming a mother. There is not much information regarding her professional life since then, as she’s kept most details away from the public’s eye.
Anna met and began dating her high school sweetheart, Chance Michael Russell, when she was a teenager. The duo tied the knot shortly after she gave birth to their first-born child, Karalynn Grace Russell, in July 2013, when she was 19 years old. Anna’s father expressed how happy and proud he was after she made him a grandfather, and added that he was confident that she would make a good mother as he spoke to Country Fan Cast.
He said that ‘She’s (Karalynn) the little stem that kind of holds the whole family together, and it’s kind of new for us. She’s a doll.’ The couple bore another daughter, Gwendolyn Russell, three years later. After several years, Anna and Chance ended their marriage with a divorce, and it is reported that the former is now dating her lesbian lover, while her ex-husband is romantically linked with Mary Haight, whom he started dating in October 2018. Brooks, her siblings and mother have maintained a close relationship with their step-mother, Trisha Yearwood, who was married twice (to Christopher Latham and Robert Reynold) before walking the aisle with Garth. She hadn’t welcomed any kids with her ex-husbands, and that might be the reason why she outwardly loves Garth’s daughters so much.
Height, Weight, and Physical Appearance
August is of white ethnicity and has a set of brown eyes and dark brown hair. She is 5ft 6ins (1.67m) tall, weighs about 121lb (55kg), with vital statistics of 33-29-35, wears shoe size 5 (US).
Anna has accumulated a huge portion of her net worth from her law career, and is reportedly worth over $1 million as of early 2022. Moreover, she comes from a rich family, and is seemingly living a luxurious life.
