Monteith grew up in Calgary, Canada, where he and his older brother, Shaun, were raised by his single mother, Ann McGregor (pictured). His parents divorced when Monteith was just 7. "I didn't have an easy run," he later recalls to Maclean's. "There were a lot of negative things going on. It sort of multiplied in school."
