Iggy Azalea Family: Baby Daddy, Kid, Siblings, Parents|
Iggy Azalea husband and familyEdit
Playboi Carti (partner)
- Date of birth: September 13, 1996 (26 years)
- Zodiac sign: Virgo
A “mumble rapper”, whose music is playful, hard-hitting and extremely melodic, Jordan Terrell Carter did not gain his popularity in an instant. Before releasing his self-titled debut-mixtape in 2017, the man was actively collaborating with other musicians. The featured singles Broke Boi and Fetti not only were widely recognized and published to SoundCloud, but attracted the attention of A$AP Mob’s AWGE and Interscope Records. Since then, Playboi Carti has been mentioned almost at the top of the Billboard 200, featured viral Baguettes in the Face and Earthquake singles and joined XXL’s Freshman Class. Today, Carti’s fans are excited at his new song @ Meh, which ranked 35th on the Hot 100, and are waiting for rapper’s upcoming Whole Lotta Red album.
Possessing an unusual style in music, Playboi is quite remarkable for his fashion preferences. The rapper was declared to be the leader of the youth style. Carti has already modeled for Louis Vuitton, Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 5 and Drake’s OVO Lookbook. The star took part in Nike Inc.’s commercial once and got round to designing for Vlone.
Having separated from an American model, Playboi fell in love with Iggy Azalea. According to the young rapper, it was love at first sight: having just started talking to the woman the day they met, he forgot about the entire world around him. The dating couple moved to Carti’s hometown, Atlanta, which brought nostalgia to both of them: Iggy experienced her first career breakthrough there. Despite lots of rumors about their break-up, Jordan and Amethyst do not confirm anything and live in total happiness. They have no intention of creating music together, but support each other. Iggy is willing to keep their relationship personal and does not want to mix it with professional matters.
Iggy Azalea kids
Onyx Carter (son with Playboi Carti)
- Date of birth: June 2020
A newly born boy by the name of Onyx has already become known all around the world, although his mother wants to keep his life private as long as possible. The newborn is certainly loved beyond any words. At the same time, there is a huge question concerning Onyx’s father, even though the baby keeps Playboi Carter’s surname.
Brendan Kelly (father)
It was Azalea’s father, a painter and comic artist Brendan Kelly with both Irish and Australian ancestry, who the star got her talent from. According to Iggy, the father was an embodiment of creativity, forming her artistic views and passing on his outrageous way of manipulating language to her. Brendan also encouraged Azalea to develop a career in fine arts, which seemingly influenced the way the singer has fought her way to incredible fame.
Brendan has also written several books for children, which, however, are full of quite irrelevant illustrations and figures of speech.
One of Azalea’s favorite but bittersweet memories from childhood is her dad driving her into town with him to play pinball machines together. Those days, the girl actually loved to spend time together with the best man in her little world.
Nevertheless, the stand-up comic induced his daughter to suffer a lot. When the girl was in the fifth grade, he left the family without a word spoken. The man just gave the last note to Iggy’s teacher and remained silent until 2014, when he suddenly wished to reconnect with the daughter, already known worldwide. Although Amethyst was upset at her father’s deed and felt deadly miserable that time, now, she gets along with him well.
Tanya Kelly (mother)
- Date of birth: December 4
Cleaning holiday houses and hotels for most of her life, Iggy’s mother, Tanya, could not imagine her daughter to become one of the most requested artists in the world one day. Nevertheless, she always knew the daughter would have to do something with words, perhaps, become “a modern day poet”.
The woman was in tears when she got to know her young daughter decided on quitting high school and leaving for Miami. However, Tanya accepted Amethyst’s resolutions for knowing the girl would definitely achieve every single goal she set.
Now, Tanya takes great pride in her daughter’s performance which led her to become a female equivalent of Eminem with record-breaking and history-making chart toppers on the list.
Emerald Kelly (sister)
- Date of birth: January 13, 1993 (30 years)
- Zodiac sign: Capricorn
Another younger sibling of Azalea is currently living in Amsterdam. The sisters do not stay in touch. Her Facebook page.
Mathias Kelly (brother)
- Date of birth: November 3
Iggy’s younger brother seems to be the most secretive member of Kelly’s family. Though leading a private life and being unregistered in any social network, Mathias appeared in Iggy’s memories in interviews several times. The rapper knows her brother to be extremely supporting and compassionate to her worries. Despite the difference in age, the siblings are fond of spending time together the moment Iggy visits her parent’s house.
Praised as one of the most successful music artists in the world, Iggy Azalea boasts her impressive achievements in rap, songwriting and music video directing. The star spent her childhood in a small Australian town, was teased for her homemade outfits at school, but kept confidence and, being a 16-year-old girl, moved to the US to pursue a music career.
Back in 2014, Azalea released her debut album The New Classic, which made her known internationally. Iggy became the first non-American female rapper, whose work topped the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Her extraordinary success was backed up by the singles Fancy, Black Widow along with her featuring Ariana Grande’s Problem.
In nine years, Iggy Azalea has got numerous accolades, including 3 Billboard Music Awards and an MTV Video Music Award, as well as 4 Grammy Awards nominations. Continuous disagreements with the labels, she was a part of, made Azalea establish her own label Bad Dreams, which became a new round in musician’s development.
