|Daughter of Tucker Carlson
You might not be familiar with the name Hopie Carlson, but you have certainly heard of her father. Or her grandfather. Hopie is the daughter of American journalist Tucker Carlson, one of the more famous media personalities.
And her grand-grandfather, Richard Warner Carlson, born Richard Boynton, was an American journalist, diplomat, and lobbyist. Richard was the director of the Voice of America during the last six years of the Cold War.
That being said, how much do we know about Hopie? Let’s take a look.
Who Is Her Famous Father?
Born Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson in May 1969, Tucker is an American television host, conservative political commentator, and writer. He has a nightly political talk show called Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News.
Born in the Mission District of San Francisco, California, he is the elder son of Lisa McNear and Dick Carlson. His brother Buckley Peck Carlson is two years younger and has worked as a communications manager and Republican political operative.
Carlson’s paternal grandparents were Richard Boynton and Dorothy Anderson. They left his father at The Home for Little Wanderer orphanage as teenagers. There, he was fostered by Carl Moberger, a tannery worker of Swedish descent, and his wife.
In 1976, Carlson’s parents divorced after nine years of marriage, and his father was granted custody of Tucker and his brother. His mother left the family when he was six, trying to pursue a bohemian lifestyle.
Speaking of his career, he began it as a fact-checker for Policy Review. It is a national conservative journal published by The Heritage Foundation and later acquired by the Hoover Institution.
In the 1990s, Carlson also worked as an opinion writer at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newspaper in Little Rock, Arkansas. Then, he joined The Weekly Standard news magazine.
From 2000 to 2005, he was a CNN commentator and co-host of the prime-time news debate program Crossfire from 2001 to 2005. Then, from 2005 to 2008, he hosted the nightly program Tucker on MSNBC.
In 2009, Carlson joined Fox News, first as a guest host, and then as a political analyst. He began his Fox News career as a guest panelist on the late-night satire show Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld. On the eve of the first debate between Mitt Romney and then-President Barack Obama in 2012, he publicized a 2007 video recording of Senator Obama criticizing the federal government’s response to Hurricane Katrina.
Since 2016, he has had his own show on Fox News, The Tucker Carlson Tonight. The show replaced On The Record, the most watched telecast of the year in the time slot on the network.
He is a vocal opponent of progressivism and a critic of immigration. Many describe him as a nationalist. He supports protectionism.
Tucker is an advocate of former US President Donald Trump. Politico has described him as “maybe the highest-profile proponent of Trumpism”. Carlson was even willing to criticize the former President when he believed that Trump was straying from the ideology.
Many believe Tucker influenced some of Trump’s decisions, including the cancelation of a military strike against Iran, the firing of John Bolton, and more.
Now let’s talk about his daughter Hopie Carlson. It might be a name you are not familiar with, but thanks to the fame of her father, Hopie is getting media coverage. She is in the spotlight for sure.
The American celebrity kid is one of many in Hollywood and the US that get recognition because of their parents. We said her father is a political commentator, journalist, author, and television personality.
Born in 1999 in the United States, yet, there is no exact information about her birth date. So, we do not know exactly when she celebrates her birthday.
Hopie holds an American nationality and is of Caucasian ethnic background. She also has Swiss ancestry.
Fun fact: her mother Susan Andrews Carlson was formerly a manager at various hospitality agencies but has since quit her job and focused on spending quality time with the family.
Her parents met at St. George High School where they both went to school. They were 15-years old teenagers at the time, madly in love, and exclusively dated each other for years. Her parents maintained their relationship even after Tucker left for college.
Six months after they graduated, they tied the knot in 1991 in a private ceremony at their high school chapel.
Growing up, Hopie attended elite schools thanks to her father’s celebrity status. She began her education at St Patrick’s Episcopal Day School before moving to St. George School.
During her high school days, she developed an interest in sporting activities, including swimming and athletics. She even competed in some breaststroke events.
After her high school graduation, she continued her professional education at Virginia University. Her siblings studied there as well. As of July 2023, she resides in Washington DC with her parents and siblings.
Hopie has two sisters, Dorothy Carlson, and Lillie Carlson, as well as a brother Buckley Carlson. Her brother is also a graduate of the University of Virginia. He now works for Capitol Hill banks in Washington DC.
Her elder sister also studied at the University of Virginia, while her younger sister studies at St George’s School.
She has a fit and slender body, standing at 5 feet 9 inches with blonde hair and brown eyes.
Strict Dating Rules
Here is a fun fact, her father Tucker Carlson has maintained strict dating rules. Those apply to Hopie and her sisters.
For example, her father, the Fox news host, doesn’t allow them to date any man who identifies as a feminist. They have to follow strict rules when it comes to dating.
Yet, despite the strict rules, the girls maintain an excellent father-daughter relationship.
Is She On Social Media?
Hopie Carlson is in her 20s as of 2023. She is legally allowed to have a profile on social media. And she does have a profile on Instagram with some 500 plus followers. But it is a private profile. She only accepts people she does know in her personal life as her followers.
Her father had a profile on Instagram, but it is gone. You can only follow his show, The Tucker Carlson Tonight Show on Instagram.
But do not worry, the American television personality has a profile on Twitter with more than 5 million followers.
Hopie is 24 years old as of 2023. She is in the years where she can work and earn money. But as of now, we do not have any information about her career path or salary. Therefore, we cannot talk about her net worth.
