A fact that was to stir controversy later in her career as a superstar.
Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jeane Mortenson, and spent the first seven years of her life in a foster home, having been given up for adoption by her mother due to her mother’s mental instability and having a child out of wedlock.
The family then relocated to North Beach, a predominantly Italian neighborhood in San Francisco, about a year after Di Maggio’s birth.
Di Maggio’s father, like generations of Di Maggios before him, was a fisherman, and he fervently wished for his sons to join him in his trade.
Di Maggio forsook three of the prime years of his career to serve in the United States Army during World War II.
Although he spent the majority of his three-year enlistment in the United States, playing baseball for the Seventh Army Air Force Team.
Norma Jeane, while working in a factory inspecting parachutes in 1944, was photographed by the Army as a promotion to show women on the assembly line contributing to the war effort.
One of the photographers, David Conover, asked to take further pictures of her.
By spring of 1945, she was quickly becoming known as a “photographers dream” and had appeared on 33 covers of national magazines.
On July 23, 1946 she signed a contract with Twentieth Century-Fox Studios. Johnny Hyde, of the William Morris Agency, became her mentor and lover in 1949.
After her tragic death in 1962, Di Maggio had roses delivered to her crypt three times a week for the next 20 years. To read more Celebrity Romance, check out our list!

Although Johnny was crazy about her, she never wanted to marry him.
