Early life and family
Caitlin Elizabeth Baunoch ‘Cait’ Fairbanks was born on 29 July 1993 in New York City USA, under the sign of Leo, and holding American nationality. Her parents’ names are David and Mary, and Cait often shares their pictures on her Instagram account.
Her father is a musician and a big lover of jokes. Cait once told one his favorite jokes he liked to amuse her with when she was a small girl: ‘What is red and green and goes 60 miles per hour? A frog in a blender’. Cait also shared her parents had always been very supportive and helped her to believe in herself and to achieve her dreams. Her mother taught her not to push herself too much, and to learn how to relax. Cait has a brother named Michael, who is a big hiking enthusiast.
Little is known about Cait’s educational background, as she never mentioned the name of the high school she attended. However, it is known that she matriculated from her local high school in New York in 2011.There is no information about any college or university she then entered, probably focusing on her acting career and leaving this chapter unwritten for now.
Cait’s parents like to remember that she enjoyed performing from a young age. She started showing interest for acting when she was eight years old, and when she turned 11 had her first role in the theatre production “American Girl Theatre”, then landed another role in the musical entitled “13”.
In 2014 she had a role in the off-Broadway production of “Heathers the Musical”, based on the original TV film of 1988. She also started appearing in such TV shows as “CSI: NY” (2007-2013), “Two and a Half Men” (2003 – 2015), in which she played the role of Joanne; “Everybody Hates Chris” (2005-2009) as Darlene, and played Kennedy in the “Lincoln Heights” series (2006 – 2009).
In 2018 Cait appeared in two more projects: the series entitled “The Middle” (2009 – 2018) in which she landed the role of Amanda, and “K.C. Undercover” (2013 – 2018) in which she played Ursula.
In 2017 Cait joined the cast of the popular soap opera entitled “The Young and the Restless” (1973 – present) in the role of Tessa Porter. For her successful performance Cait was even nominated for Daytime Emmy in 2018. In 2019 Cait wrote a song for the series called “How Could a Lie Feel So True”, which was nominated for the Best Original Song in the series. It was not her first songwriting experience; she earlier released her own music on her eponymous SoundCloud profile, performing her songs herself under the stage name Ginesse.
I’m releasing music!! The first song comes out November 16th and it will be under the name “Ginesse” and I’m so incredibly nervous. It’s been a while in the making and it’s been such a collaborative process so general thanks to @mrmatiasmora @mia_pants @thecarysinger @MrOfford pic.twitter.com/8Pc3vOjzK2

Personal life, ex-boyfriend Cary Singer
Cait earlier dated her long-term boyfriend Cary Singer. The couple met in the circle of their mutual friends, and started dating in 2016. They barely hid their relationship, posting some personal photos on their Instagram accounts, and wishing each other a Merry Christmas and congratulating each other on St. Valentine’s Day, however, they broke up in September 2018. Cait had hard times recovering from the painful break-up, and her new single called “Bedford” helped to heal her soul wounds, as well as rewriting some events in her memory to deal with her sadness.
‘While living in New York, I collected so many moments with this particular person, especially in Brooklyn which inspired the title. It’s about how you can rewrite the movie in your head and forget the reality of why it even ended. The ‘it wasn’t that bad’ stage of grieving. The ‘am I actually missing them or am I just lonely?’ stage’, she shared in her interview to the Nylon magazine in 2018. Cait uploaded the official video on the single on her YouTube channel, which displays Cait sitting in front of the big screen watching her walks with her ex-boyfriend.
Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
Cait’s family is very active and easy-going; they like spending their spare time together, going hiking and camping. Cait has a black dog named Millie at her parents’ home in Orange County. Another hobby is photography – she often takes pictures of her friends and enjoys posting them on her Instagram account.

Appearance, clothing style

As to her clothing style, she prefers designers’ clothes, though sticks to casual looks. Cait has a small tattoo under her left armpit, which once showed itself through a wet T-shirt in one of Cait’s photos, but it is quite hard to understand what exactly it depicts.
