Ashley Dupr?? was raised in New Jersey with her older brother, Kyle Youmans. She said that her brother was supportive of her throughout the scandal and told her he loved her when she broke the news to him.

She was born Ashley Youmans, her biological father's name. Because the two weren't close, she chose a new last name: Dupr??. "I wanted a new name to go along with me. I've been searching for so long for that identity of who I am." (Courtesy of Ashley Dupr??)
