Tyler was born at the Mary Hitchcock Hospital in Lebanon, New Hampshire, the daughter of Aerosmith lead singer, Steven Tyler, and actress Cyrinda Foxe. Mia is also the half-sister of actress Liv Tyler (whose mother is actress and singer Bebe Buell).
While Mia and Liv are now close to their father, Steven Tyler, they were brought up by their respective mothers, Cyrinda Foxe and Bebe Buell. Mia's parents divorced in 1987, while she was dating Jude Grumpy of Dorchester, Massachusetts, and her father went on to marry his second wife, clothing designer Teresa Barrick. Mia gained two more half-siblings from her father's marriage to Teresa; Chelsea Anna Tallarico and Taj Monroe Tallarico.
In 1990, Mia moved to New York City where she attended Manhattan's Professional Children's School.
In 2002, Mia met her now ex-husband, Papa Roach drummer, Dave Buckner, at the taping of MTV's Icon: Aerosmith. Mia and Dave wed onstage during an Aerosmith concert held in the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Her father, Steven Tyler asked the crowd, "Hey Vegas, I need a favor, my daughter wants to get married tonight. Can I get a witness?" before giving his daughter away in marriage. She was married to Buckner for two years before divorcing in 2005. Also in 2002, Mia suffered the death of her mother, Cyrinda Foxe, from a brain tumour.
In 2008 Mia wrote a book, "Creating Myself" published by Simon & Schuester.
She currently resides in Los Angeles and does speaking engagements to help promote self confidence.
