Birthday Boy Leonardo DiCaprio’s Step Mum is an Amritdhari Sikh?

Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio may be known for many blockbusters. But did you know that his stepmother Peggy (née Farrar) is an Amritdhari Sikh?

DiCaprio’s father George, a comic book writer, married Peggy in 1995, after he divorced his first wife (and DiCaprio’s biological mother) Irmelin Indenbirken.

Peggy embraced the religion long ago, but only began donning the turban ten years ago, according to this report.

Though not much is known about Peggy, she is often seen at award shows.
