PARENT

“I gotta give it up to my parents,” Zendaya said on Ellen in 2016. “I’m really lucky to have the parents that I have. They just have always instilled in me those core values that I think I have to carry with me through everything. I give it up to them, I give it up to my family.”

Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman who also goes by the nicknames Daya, Zen, Z, Rocky, and Boo first stepped into the limelight in 2008 as a child model in Marcy’s, Mervyns and Old Navy, she soon ventured into singing and acting to which she has been successful in since making her debut in each. Her life has indeed been an eventful one and here you are going to learn all about it including who her parents and siblings are.

Zendaya was 12 years old when her parents got married. She remains the only child of her mother Claire Marie Stoermer who was married in 2008 to Kazembe before their marriage came to an amicable end. Nevertheless, she has five (5) older Siblings; 3 half sisters and 2 half brothers namely: Kaylee, Annabella, Austin, Katiana and Julien from her father Kazembe Ajamu Coleman.

Zendaya’s parents are Kazembe Ajamu Coleman and Claire Stoermer. Coleman’s family is Nigerian and Stoermer’s European, though both are American. When they had a daughter, they wanted to name her something special, even if there was no actual word for her.

“It’s kind of partially made up,” Zendaya said. “My parents wanted to have a name that had, I guess you could say, its origins in African language. I think they did a lot of different research and there was a word that they found that meant to give thanks and they liked the idea of the word.”

Both my parents are educators so they were just trying to figure out what would be the best way to help me with my shyness. They found that essentially this idea of making sure your kid tries things. They don’t have to do it if they don’t like it but they have to try. So they would make me try sports and dance and all different kinds of things. They told me listen, if you don’t enjoy it, you can stop but you have to try so I would try it and of course naturally, and most likely, every time I enjoyed it. It just was about that initial exposing me to different things which I think was really, really helpful and helped me out of my shell.
