Who is Ted Cruz's daughter Caroline and what did she say on TikTok?

DAD and daughter relationships can be quite complex – and it seems Ted Cruz and his firstborn Caroline are no different.

The politician's family life has become a topic of conversation after Caroline revealed some home truths online.

Who is Ted Cruz's daughter Caroline?

Caroline Cruz is the 13-year-old daughter of Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

The teen has stayed out of the limelight since her dad's rise to fame, but has began to gain popularity on social media.

Her TikTok account went viral after she began sharing lip-sync videos and discussing her dad's controversial conservative views.

Caroline is the Cruz family's eldest child and older sister to 11-year-old Catherine.

Senator Cruz and his wife Heidi sensationally came under fire after whisking their children away to Cancun, Mexico in February 2021.

At the time, the state of Texas was battling a deadly winter blast that left millions of resident without power.

What did Caroline Cruz say about her father on TikTok?

Caroline has publicly declared that she disagrees with most of her father's views in an explosive TikTok clip posted on

The 13-year-old complained that "a lot of people judge her" based upon her father's reputation, despite their differing beliefs.

She received a series of questions regarding what it was like to be the Republican politician's daughter and made a pros and cons list discussing her family life.

"Some of the good things are we get candy and gifts in the mail. We also get to travel sometimes," Caroline began.

But in the post shared in early January 2022, she ran through a list of "bad things" explaining why being the Senator's daughter is difficult.

The teenager said: "I literally have to have security following me everywhere.

"Like if I want to go on a walk through the neighborhood or to my friend's house or something, I have to have like two security guards behind me the entire time."

Caroline even claimed her father's media team photoshopped her outfit in a photo for the Cruz family Christmas card to demonstrate Cruz's conservative views.

She shared the snap of the group photo where she appears to be wearing a waist-length knitted shirt, before sharing an image of her in a crop top with an identical design.

"On the Christmas card, they literally made my shirt longer," Caroline said.

Her social media accounts have since been made private.
