Personal life[edit]

Middleton has had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since he was 4 years old. He summarized its effects in an interview, "At first it distorted my hands. Then the cortisone I had to take made my cheeks fat. At 8, I lost movement in my neck. When I was 15, my hip snapped. After an operation, I had to be on crutches and later, after I broke my leg falling over my dog, on canes". He remains at a height of 5' 4".[1]
