Nancy who is the only daughter of her parents was born on October 13, 1969, in Stoneham, Massachusetts.
Her parents Daniel Kerrigan and Brenda Kerrigan had two boys older than Nancy, Micheal, and Mark.
The former Olympian comes from an obviously supportive and athletic-minded family. While her brothers took up hockey, she focused on figure skating at six years old.
By the time she was eight years old, she started taking private lessons with her coach Theresa Martin while her father, Daniel drove the ice resurfacer at the local rink as payment for Nancy’s lessons.
A year later, her lessons seemed to pay off as she bagged the Boston Open.
She attended Stoneham high school, after which she got a degree in business from Emmanuel College in Boston. She continued under the tutelage of Theresa Martin until she was 16 years old.

A championship figure skater, Nancy Kerrigan was the 1993 U.S. National Champion and won a Silver Medal at the ’94 Olympics and a Bronze at the ’92 Olympics.
She is most widely recognized for being attacked by the husband of a rival figure skater, Tonya Harding.
Nancy was attacked on January 6, 1994, at the US Figure Skating Championships in Detroit while coming off the ice after a practice session.
A man came out of nowhere and struck her in the knee several times with a nightstick. The videotape of the attack’s aftermath was seen around the world.
It would eventually be discovered that the attack was perpetrated by a man who was hired by Tonya Harding’s husband at the time Jeff Gillooly.
Whether or not Tonya had prior knowledge of the attack has been hotly debated for the last twenty years.
Tonya did eventually plead guilty to being an accomplice after the fact for covering up the connection after finding out her husband was involved.
A year after her retirement, she went to the altar with her agent, Jerry Solomon who had been married three times before and has a son from his second marriage.
The union produced three children: Matthew (1996), Brian (2005), and Nicole (2008).
