Kellyn Acosta Parents: Meet Kennith and Kanikah
Kellyn Acosta's parents, Kennith and Kanikah, welcomed their son in Plano, Texas, on the 24th of July 1995.
His dad is a hard-nosed engineer, a strict father with the stereotypical Asian upbringing, and he got Straight A's while growing up. However, his parents separated when he was young, so he spent a lot of time with his grandma, who he called Mimi.
Mimi is a full Japanese woman who hadn't been to Japan in half a century; when she came to States with her family, they had nothing but a blanket, one change of clothes, and a pair of bamboo sandals. Thus, Acosta grew up with Asian blood, and his last name comes from his Mexican paternal step-grandfather.
