More information

Fey was born on May 18, 1970, in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, an inner ring suburb of Philadelphia. Her mother, Zenobia "Jeanne" (née Xenakes), is a brokerage employee. Her father, Donald Henry Fey (died 2015), was a university grant proposal-writer. She has a brother, Peter, who is eight years older. Fey's mother, who was born in Piraeus, is the daughter of Greek immigrants: Vasiliki Kourelakou, Fey's maternal grandmother, left Petrina (in Laconia) on her own, arriving in the United States in February 1921.

Fey's father had English, German, Northern Irish, and Scottish ancestry; one of her paternal ancestors was John Hewson (1744–1821), a textile manufacturer who immigrated to America with the support of Benjamin Franklin, enabling Hewson to quickly open a quilting factory in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. According to a genealogical DNA test arranged by the television series Finding Your Roots, Fey's ancestry is 94% European, 3% Middle Eastern, and 3% from the Caucasus.
