Domino Suzy Kirke has made a name for herself in the music and film industries. Born to Simon Kirke, drummer for the bands Free and Bad Company, and Lorraine Kirke in London in 1983, Domino spent her early years in England before her family moved to Manhattan. She has two sisters who are actresses; Jemima Kirke is known for her roles in ‘Girls’ and ‘Sex Education,’ and Lola Kirke starred in ‘Mozart in the Jungle,’ ‘Gone Girl,’ and ‘Lost Girls.’


Developing her passion for music early on, thanks to her musician father, Kirke honed her skills in classical voice and piano at the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School. Her journey in the entertainment industry began when she was just 17, as she caught the attention of producer Andre Levins while performing at Joe’s Pub, leading to her signing with ‘Fun Machine.’

Soon after, Domino partnered with Jordan Galland to form the band ‘DOMINO.’ Their collaboration resulted in recording an EP with British musician Mark Ronson. Their combined talent won them Best Musical Form at the 2006 Da Vinci Film and Video Festival for the soundtrack they created for the movie ‘Green Umbrella.’

In addition to her music career, Kirke explored the world of acting, contributing to several films such as ‘The Missing Person’ (2009), ‘Angeles Crest’ (2011), ‘Green Umbrella’ (2006), and ‘Coven'(2006). Her cinematic endeavors have not only provided her with recognition but have also played a role in increasing her net worth.

The singer-actress also owns a business named ‘Carriage House Doulas,’ which she launched in 2009. As a doula, she offers support and guidance to expectant mothers, a role she has embraced with enthusiasm. Kirke’s interest in birth education came from her own experience of not receiving the support she had hoped for during her own birth, and among her notable clients is comedian Amy Schumer.


As for her personal life, Domino is married to Penn Badgley, known for his role in the TV series ‘Gossip Girl.’ The couple began dating in 2014 after finding a connection through their shared passion for music, family, and faith.

Although Kirke was not serious about their relationship at the beginning, they had two weddings in 2017 — on Feb. 27, 2017, in a private courthouse ceremony in Brooklyn, New York, and a larger outdoor wedding on June 24, 2017, in upstate New York attended by many celebrities.

Domino and the ‘You’ star welcomed their first child together in 2020 after enduring two miscarriages in a row before. She also has a son, Cassius Riley, from a previous relationship with Morgon O’Kane. According to Kirke, Badgley is a good stepfather to Cassius.


Her discography, which includes tracks like ‘Everyone Else Is Boring,’ ‘Adults Only,’ and ‘The Guard EP,’ has helped Domino garner fame and financial success. In addition to her earnings from acting and music, her business venture contributes to her accumulated wealth. As reported by KnowNetWorth.com, she is estimated to have a net worth of $8 million.

As of now, Domino is 39 years old. Most recently, she celebrated Penn Badgley’s Father’s Day with an Instagram post, where she called him ‘a real, patient, kind, devoted, sexy’ father and shared two pictures of Penn and their 2-year-old son. You can see the pictures below.
