Zendaya is super close to her family and her parents have become nearly as famous as the young actress herself – here's everything you need to know.

Zendaya's career has gone to epic heights in recent years after starring in hit TV show Euphoria and even taking on leading roles in top movies including Dune and Challengers. And with such success behind her, everyone is looking at just who her proud parents must be.

One of six children, Tom Holland's girlfriend is super close to all of her siblings and mum and dad who she openly talks about in interviews and on social media. Working closely with both of her parents still, despite them not being together anymore, the actress has nothing but thanks for her immediate family.

With a huge amount of respect for her parents and how she was brought up, Zendaya has previously spoken about her mum being a "magical" human and how her dad is super protective.

Here's everything you need to know about Zenday's parents and siblings as she continues to thank them for their support.

Zendaya’s mum is a former teacher who now owns her own handmade jewellery brand, Kizzmet Jewellery, which Zendaya is often seen wearing.

The mother-daughter duo are extremely close, with Zendaya often bringing her mum to awards ceremonies after she helped build her daughter’s career.

Zendaya said to Teen Vogue: “Growing up, I watched my mom teach in the heart of Oakland, California, at inner-city schools that were always underfunded. My mom went above and beyond, working constantly to open her students’ eyes to an education that could lift them far beyond their current circumstances. 

“She would introduce them to the arts, guide them through the language of Shakespeare, and show them the wonders of nature outside city life — all things that they wouldn’t have experienced otherwise. Watching her was magical; it instilled within me a true appreciation of and devotion to the importance of education.”

Anyone who follows the Euphoria star on Instagram knows how protective he is of his daughter.

She credits both her parents for keeping her grounded, saying on Ellen: “I gotta give it up to my parents, 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’s parents are separated, but remain on good terms.

Who are Zendaya’s siblings?

Zendaya is one of six children, she has three sisters; Kaylee, Katianna and Annabella, and two brothers; Austin and Julien.

The star occasionally posts about her brothers and sisters on Instagram and said in a 2015 interview with Time her big sister is one of her biggest influences.

She said: “I look up to my big sister and realise the influence she’s had on me and making me a better person. Having such a big, grounded family, I realised as you get older how important that is.”

Zendaya also now has a strong bond with her nieces and nephews, often sharing videos of herself larking about with them on Instagram.
