Torrey DeVitto is beloved by fans for her work as Dr Natalie Manning on Chicago Med and teen dramas One Tree Hill and Pretty Little Liars.

But did you know that her mom's best friend is rock royalty Stevie Nicks?  While her dad, Liberty DeVitto, is an American rock drummer, who worked with Billy Joel's recording and touring band for decades, Torrey's mom is Mary Devitto who has been friends with the Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter since 1976.

"She only missed a year of Fleetwood Mac," Stevie once told Oprah Winfrey of Mary, adding: "So she realy has been through the whole thing with me."

However, Torrey previously told HELLO! that growing up, she didn't know any different. 

"I always look at people whose parents were doctors or lawyers and I think, 'What is that like?' But I feel really grateful for how I grew up because I got to see what to do and what not to do very early on, and I grew up in a family where we traveled a lot and were adaptable, which is very important in my line of work," she said. 

"Every time I'm around my mom and Stevie, they always give great advice, but I think what I admire most about someone like Stevie is that she completely embodies their craft. Stevie is someone who just eats, sleeps and drinks who she is, what she is for music."

"I bounced all over and for a long time it intimidated me, feeling like I don't have anything that's my first love, but then I figured out every person is their own person. Stevie, and my dad, definitely planted a really good work ethic seed in my head," Torrey added. 

Stevie, 74, is alegendary American singer songwriter, known for her work with the British-American band Fleetwood Mac and as a solo artist. She joined Fleetwood Mac in 1975, helping them to become one of the best-selling acts of all time, with blockbuster albums (especially Rumours) and classic songs like 'Dreams,' 'Don't Stop' and 'Gypsy'.

In October 2014, Liberty was also inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.
