Zendaya, who stars in HBO’s drama Euphoria, comes from a huge family in California and she often shares images of her siblings and people from her large family on her social media. The actress though notoriously doesn’t specify what or who they really are except that they are her brothers and sisters.
And Katianna is one of those closest ones to her who although appearing every now and then on her Instagram, is also quite a mystery to her fans. So unfold as much as possible about this sibling of the MCU actress in the spread below; try to get the hang of Katianna’s early life, in what way exactly is she related to Zendaya and all.
Katianna Stoermer Coleman Parental Heritage And Birth Details
Katianna, real name, Latonja Coleman, was born to Kazembe Ajamu Coleman who is of African-American origin and has roots in Little Rock, Arkansas. He has five children including Katianna (his first-born) from his two marriages.
Almost all of Zendaya’s siblings are adequately private about their life so much so that their early details are nothing but a void slate.
In fact, to this day, the journals and the media argue as to who is the eldest among Zendaya’s siblings. Also in limbo is the specifics with regards to Katianna’s birth details or all of her early life.
So far, the only times people have come to know her is when either Zendaya or her father, Kazembe mentioned Katianna on their respective social accounts. What’s presumed nonetheless is that Katianna grew up in Oakland, California mostly with her grandmother.
Zendaya once revealed that she and her siblings grew up in the Emeryville home where her father also grew up. Also, her aunts apparently were Black Panther party members.
Katianna Stoermer Coleman’s Age
Born in 1999, Katianna is 23 years of age as of 2022.
Who Is Katianna Stoermer Coleman’s Mother?
While not much about Katianna’s mother is in the records, she is reportedly no longer the wife of Kazembe. In fact, it’s been a while since the two divorced.
Zendaya’s father once shared a picture of two women on his Instagram wherein the caption, he wrote, my baby mamas.
Since then the fans of Zendaya have taken the left one with a silk dress as Katianna’s mother.
It is unclear when and why Katianna’s father and mother divorced. As for the present, the father of six is in a relationship with another woman whom he had introduced to his Instagram followers in Feb 2020. In the picture, Katianna’s father is holding a yet-to-be-named woman; the nature of their poses pretty much affirms they were more than just random strangers. Ajuma though is yet to share more details on her.
Ajamu, whose real name is Samuel David Coleman, is now the manager of his actress daughter Zendaya and also owns a 3-star hotel. He is a music producer as well.
Katianna Stoermer Coleman Real Name
People and the media alike have often mistaken Katianna’s real name for Katianna Stoermer Coleman. In reality, her middle name doesn’t include Stoermer.
The name instead belongs to Zendaya’s mother, Claire Stoermer. The confusion is to such an extent that people at times have even gone on to assume Zendaya and Katianna or the rest of her siblings are biologically related.
Conversely, however, the former Disney star and Katianna are not from the same womb.
Is Zendaya Adopted By Katianna Family?
Katianna’s father didn’t adopt her half-sister Zendaya.
Ever since the five-foot-ten-inches tall star catapulted into Hollywood fame and subsequently went on to talk about her sisters and brothers, people have been wondering in what way is the KC Undercover actress related to them.
Zendaya in actuality is Katianna’s father’s biological child with his second wife Claire Stoermer, an American of German and Scottish ancestry.
Katianna Stoermer Coleman Siblings
Altogether, Katianna has five siblings including Zendaya. She has two sisters and two brothers. Her brothers include Julien Coleman and Austin Coleman. The oldest of her siblings is Austin, who reportedly is also an actor.
The former, on the other hand, also goes by the moniker “EZ.” To say more, Julien apparently is the husband of a woman named Sonja, with whom he shares three kids, the oldest being Ezenia (“Zink”).
Speaking of Zink, she stands as a special person to Zendaya. Zink who is a little more than a year older than the singer/actress has been her best friend since birth.
Katianna’s other sisters are Kaylee and Annabella. Her sisters, Kaylee, Annabella, Austin, & Julien all come from her father Kazembe Ajamu Coleman‘s previous marriage before meeting Zendaya’s mom Claire Stoermer.
Zendaya Loves Her Sister, Katianna, And Her Other Sisters As Well
Although Zendaya is not that forthright about her dating life, she is quite vocal about her relationship with her sisters and brothers.
The California-born actress has often acknowledged them as her inspiration and someone she has always looked up to. Zendaya says her elder sisters including Katianna had a big impact on her while growing up. Each of them, apparently, in their own way showed her how to take care of herself and those around her.
Once in an interview, the Emmy winner said,
“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.”
Worth mentioning is that all the siblings share a great bond with the Berkley Playhouse graduate as evident from Zendaya frequently sharing pictures of her sisters and brothers.
Is Katianna Stoermer Coleman Married?
Katianna most presumably is married and likely might also have children. However, while Zendaya has mentioned her nieces and nephews on several occasions, it is reasonably perplexing as to which of her siblings’ children they are.
What has been confirmed is that some of Zendaya’s sisters do have children of their own but then again the actress hasn’t specified them or properly introduced them to her followers.
Zendaya in May 2019 to Vogue said one of her half-sisters is married and has two daughters. The family reportedly lives nearby Zendaya. And the actress admits to showing up at her sister’s house at a whim and hanging out with her children.
The Homecoming star though has never mentioned which sister it is, Katianna, Kaylee, or Annabella.
