The Sad Reason Piers Morgan’s Mother Changed His Name When He Was A Child

Sadly for the family, before they could celebrate Morgan’s first birthday, O’Meara died. In his book, “The Hot Seat: Love, War, and Cable News,” Morgan revealed that his cause of death was an “Ulcer-related condition.” Even more devastating, his mother was pregnant with his younger brother at the time. Despite the heartbreak, however, Sybille managed to find love again a few years after the loss of her first husband.

Though Morgan hasn’t shared exactly how old he was when he took his stepfather’s surname, in March 2021 — after making his not-so-complimentary thoughts on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah Winfrey interview known — Morgan revealed that he’d been a child at the time. In response to a Markle fan, who questioned why he brought up her relationship with her father, while he didn’t use his own father’s surname (via Express), Morgan tweeted, “My father died when I was one. I then took my Dad’s name when he married my mother.
