While Zendaya might be the most recognizable face of the Colemans, she hails from a close-knit family. Today, we’ll take a closer look at her family — her youngest sister, Katianna Stoermer Coleman, and her other siblings.
The Coleman Family
Zendaya’s full name is Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman. Her mother’s name is Claire Stoermer, and she is a former teacher. Claire never wore makeup, which influenced Zendaya’s views on beauty. She also has a jewelry line that Zendaya wears.
Zendaya’s father’s name is Kazembe Ajamu Coleman. The actress lived with her parents until at least 2016. Her parents are divorced, but they still remain close. She has five siblings — two brothers and three sisters. All of Zendaya’s siblings are from her dad’s previous marriage.
Katianna Stoermer Coleman
The youngest in the Coleman clan, Katianna is also known as Kizzy. While she is not as often in the public eye as Zendaya, Katianna has a close bond with her family. In an interview with Time Magazine, Zendaya said the following about Katianna and her big family:
“As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized my true models are my parents. … I look up to my big sister and realize the influence she’s had on me and making me a better person. Having such a big, grounded family, I realized as you get older how important that is.”
In 2019, Zendaya revealed that Katianna lives in Oakland, California, is married, and has two daughters named Imani and Isys.
Kaylee Stoermer Coleman
Kaylee, another of Zendaya’s sisters, prefers to maintain a relatively low profile compared to the ‘Euphoria’ star. She doesn’t have a social media account, so little is known about her.
Annabella Stoermer Coleman
Like Kaylee, Annabella doesn’t have a social media presence. However, according to a photo Zendaya’s mother shared on Instagram, some speculate she might not be that much older than the actress.
Austin Stoermer Coleman
Austin reportedly pursues an acting career like her sister, but this information is not confirmed as he doesn’t have any public social media accounts. He’s often confused with Zendaya’s assistant, Darnell Appling. Appling has worked with the actress on several projects, such as ‘Spiderman: Far From Home.’
Julien Stoermer Coleman
Julien, much like Kaylee, is not frequently in the public eye. He has three children from his marriage to Sonja, and one of his daughters, Ezenia ‘Zink’ Coleman, has a close bond with Zendaya. She’s a year older than the actress, and the two appeared in 2014 on Teen Vogue’s YouTube channel in a video named ‘Zendaya and Zink Play Besties Word Association.‘
