An inside look at Zendaya’s siblings
She established herself as an actress and singer in the entertainment industry as Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman. In light of her success, one has to wonder who her siblings are. What is her family size? The actress occasionally shares photos of her siblings and parents on her social media pages. In addition to Zendaya, she has three sisters and two brothers. The eldest brother of Zendaya is Julien Stoermer Coleman.
Being a family man keeps his life out of the public eye. There is little information about Austin Stoermer Coleman, like his older brother Julien Stoermer Coleman. Are there any sisters in Zendaya’s family? She does, indeed. Her sister Katianna Stoermer Coleman is affectionately called Kizzi. Besides being married, Katianna is a mother of two children. It’s hard to find out much about Zendaya’s little sister Kaylee Stoermer Coleman. The information on her is limited, just like that on her siblings. Anabella Stoermer Coleman shares the same lack of social media accounts as her younger sister Kaylee Stoermer Coleman.
