Gladys Baker Morris spent most of her life believing that Marilyn Monroe’s cousin, Meredith Baker, was her biological mother. In March 2014, while on her deathbed, her “mother” told her that she had actually been adopted, and that her biological parents were incredibly famous.
“My mother confessed to me on her deathbed, that my real mother was in fact, Marilyn Monroe,” Ms. Morris told reporters. “She told me that Marilyn was afraid that the Kennedy brothers would have her and her baby killed if they learned of her pregnancy, so my mother had given birth in secret and hidden me away as soon as I was born.”
After hearing her mother’s confession, Ms. Morris underwent a lot of research to clarify her origins, and rapidly found out that she had indeed been adopted.
In took a total of 18 months of legal proceedings, however, before she was finally able to obtain her adoption record, including her birth certificate.
This amazing document, which has become the cornerstone of her legal claim, clearly states that she is the daughter of Norma Jeane Mortenson, better known as Marilyn Monroe, and of the assassinated U.S. President, Jonh F. Kennedy.
