Rome Flynn is a huge name in the industry after his back-to-back terrific performances in numerous TV shows. For his performance on the CBS daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful, the actor won the Daytime Emmy Award.

But Rome wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for his mother who raised him and his siblings as a single parent. His father had left the family a long ago and her mom had to take full responsibility.

Let’s take a look at his family life and get up close and personal with the handsome hunk.

Who are Rome Flynn Parents?

Rome is the eldest son of Nickey Alexander, a chef. We’ve all heard the saying ‘Started from the bottom now we’re here,’ and it sticks true to Rome’s life.

He grew up homeless alongside his mother Nickey Alexander and his seven siblings. However, Rome’s mother, not even for a single day, complained. And after years and years of hardship, it all finally paid off. All of her kids are in a better place now, especially her son Rome.

What about Rome Flynn’s Father?

Rome’s mom single-handedly took care of him and his siblings. This leads us all to one specific question and that is, where was his father, and who is he?

It looks like Rome and his siblings never really had a father figure in their lives. Maybe this why, Rome refrains from talking about his parents in any interviews or shows.

Regardless, Rome has a deep affection for his mother. He even takes her to various red-carpet events as a date.

Raised with Seven Siblings by his Single Mom, Nickey Alexander

Rome is one of Nickey’s eight children. Two of his sisters’ names are Love and Rekeea Tynese, and two of his brothers’ names are Wisdom and Nino.

His sister Rekeea is a Make-up artist, who is married and a mother of three kids.

After Rome came into the world, his family moved to Springfield. Initially, he along with his mom and two siblings were homeless. Their situation was dire and they used to spend holidays at local shelters.

Rome Flynn Education: Received Basketball Scholarship

The actor graduated high school from Lanphier High School. Later on, he started studying at the Benedictine University on Basketball scholarship.

In a surprising turn of events, Rome’s career never took off in sports but in the entertainment industry. Before he could become a big NBA star, a national talent scout spotted him via his social media profile. Soon he began his career in acting and singing.

Rome Flynn is of Mixed Ethnicity

We often wonder that Rome has surprisingly good genetics and as it turns out, it is all because of his ethnic background. He comes from the mixed ethnicity of Afro-Cuban and Irish.

Mother Nickey Runs a Restaurant

Rome’s mother runs a restaurant Nickey’s Southern Style Kitchen in Springfield, Illinois. She opened the restaurant in 2017, in an effort to give back to the community.

Her restaurant is famous for feeding the homeless during the Holidays. The trend started when Nickey was all set to open her restaurant in 2017, Thanksgiving was right around the corner. She then decided to open her doors for the homeless or underprivileged on the Holidays.

The Flynn Family Gives Back to the Community

It was a small effort from her side to make her community feel at home. Given the circumstances she and her kids faced, helping the poor was something she wanted to do for a long time.

She stated at the time, “It was a like a family goal or a promise: If we ever get to a point where we can make someone’s life a little easier, a little happier, we would.”

Since then Nickey and her eight kids always open their doors for the needy and the poor right at the Holiday season.
