Tatia Starkey, now 36, was the first Beatle grandchild.

Tatia, followed in the footsteps of Ringo and her father, Zak Starkey, becoming a musician herself. But rather than being a drummer like Ringo and his son, Tatia decided on a different instrument, which she has played in two bands.

In 1965, Ringo married his first wife, Maureen Starkey, and they went on to have three children together: Zak, Jason, and Lee Starkey. Zak and his wife, Sarah Menikides, welcomed Tatia in 1985.
In addition to Tatia, Ringo now has seven other grandchildren. 
He also became a great-grandfather in 2016, when Tatia had a son, Stone, with Adam Low.
Tatia has been a bass player for years now. In 2008, she was playing with a new band called Belakiss and was using the stage name Veronica Avant at the time. 
She's also played with the band My Vitriol. While not much recent news is available about either band, as of 2016, it was reported that Tatia was still a part of Belakiss.
In a 2010 interview with Music Feeds, Tatia shared that some of her musical influences were Led Zeppelin, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and Tame Impala.
Tatia's father Zak has played drums with Oasis and The Who, filling in for former members. He also toured with his father's Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band in the early '90s and was a founding member of Johnny Marr & the Healers.
Tatia didn't want to play drums after seeing her father consistently compared to Ringo.
She reportedly said her father had tried to get her to play piano when she was a child but that she found it boring and would run away
Tatia's paternal grandmother, Maureen, died of leukemia in 1994 when Starkey was only nine years old.
