Jason Kidd’s Children: Meet His Son Trey and Daughters Cooper, Miah, Jazelle

Jason Kidd’s children are eight in number from four different women. In order of their birth, Kidds children are Jason Alexander Kidd Jr., Cheyenne Kidd, Trey Jason Kidd, Miah Kidd, Jazelle Kidd, Chance Kidd, Noah Grace, and Cooper Anne Kidd. Jason Kidd’s children are from the four recognized relationships he has had to date.

Jason Kidd’s first child, a son he had in college, is a love child and a product of his one-night stand with a woman named Alexandria Brown. His second child, a daughter, was also birthed after a brief relationship with a woman named Tgia Jones. His other six children are evenly split between the two women he went on to marry. The NBA hall of Famer has a son and 2 daughters each from his ex-wife Joumana Marie Kidd (née Samaha) and his wife Porschla Kidd (née Coleman).

Jason Kidd Has Three Children With His First Wife

Jason Kidd and his ex-wife Joumana Marie Kidd {nee Samaha} (born September 28, 1972) tied the knot in 1997. Their 10-year marriage was rowdier than peaceful, characterized by accusations of domestic violence and abuse that saw Kidd at one point in the marriage sentenced to 6 months of anger management classes after he pled guilty to charges of assaulting his then-wife Joumana.

Kidd ended up filing for divorce and accusing his ex-wife of extreme cruelty throughout their marriage. The marriage was ultimately dissolved in 2007 but the former couple remained in touch for the sake of their three children, who were thought to be the only positive from their decade-long marriage.

Jason Kidd has a son, Trey Jason Kidd, and twin daughters Mia and Jazelle Kidd with his ex-wife Joumana and all three of their children are now young adults who are gradually making their way through life. Let’s meet Kidd’s children from his ex-wife Joumana Kidd.

Trey Jason Kidd 

  • Full Name: Trey Jason Kidd
  • Date of Birth: October 12, 1998
  • Age: 52 years old
  • Mother: Joumana Marie Kidd (nee Samaha)
  • Occupation: Basketball coach, Student, Blogger, Podcast host

Trey Jason Kidd was born on October 12, 1998, under the birth sign of Cancer. He is his father’s third child overall but his first with his mother Joumana Marie Kidd (née Samaha), who is an actress and TV host. Although Jason was born in Arizona State, he spent most of his formative years on the road with his parents due to his father’s basketball career.

He attended elementary school in Oradell, Bergen County before his parents’ divorce prompted his move to Los Angeles, California with his mom and younger twin sisters. Trey received his high school diploma at Bergen Catholic High School and was a valued member of the school’s basketball team playing mainly in the forward position but sometimes in the position of the point guard. He excelled as a high school basketball player and many tipped him to follow in his father’s footsteps and eventually end up in the NBA.

However, by the time he got to college, Trey had turned his interests to other things and was no longer as dedicated as he previously was to basketball. He enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles, and briefly worked as the assistant coach of the Beverly Hills High School Basketball team. These days Trey Kidd is focused on blogging and his duties as the host of the podcast show on 360 Degree Podcast.

Details of Trey’s personal life have been expertly concealed from the media and the public and the resultant effect is that we can’t be sure if he is in a romantic relationship with anyone or not. While he was growing up, Trey had a good relationship with his father and was almost always constantly pictured with Jason during his heydays in the NBA. 

In an interview, however, Trey revealed that the closeness he had with his father lessened after his parents’ divorce was finalized. He also revealed that it has deteriorated to the point where it had become almost nonexistent in his adult years. He further stated that his father was someone who did not care about other people’s feelings as long as they served his purpose.

Jason Kidd Snr. has yet to respond to his son’s statements.

Miah Kidd

  • Full Name: Miah Kidd
  • Date of Birth: September 27, 2001
  • Age: 52 years old
  • Mother: Joumana Marie Kidd (nee Samaha)
  • Occupation: Student, Model

Miah Kidd is Jason Kidd’s second child with his ex-wife Joumana. Miah was born on September 27, 2001. She was only 6 years old when her parents went their separate ways. Not much is known about Miah Kidd’s early life and early formal education background but she is currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California with her twin sister Jazelle.

In addition to being a student, Miah is also a model. An overview of her private relationships does not include any romantic alliances as it seems to primarily revolve around the very close bond she shares with her sister Jazelle and spending time with her dog Teddy. Miah also likes to travel, particularly to coastal areas with beaches. She has a pretty decent relationship with her dad despite all that happened between him and her mother.

Jazelle Kidd

  • Full Name: Jazelle Kidd
  • Date of Birth: September 27, 2001
  • Age: 52 years old
  • Mother: Joumana Marie Kidd (nee Samaha)

The other half of Jason Kidd’s twin daughters with his ex-wife Joumana, Jazelle shares a birthday with her twin sister Miah, and both seem quite inseparable as shown through their social media platforms. Jazelle also goes to Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, California, and they are both due to graduate in 2023.

Jazelle is also a dancer and has been a dancer from her very early days as a child. Jason Kidd’s youngest daughter, by a few minutes anyways, is also flying solo at the moment with no discernible romantic attachments. She likes to spend time with her sister and other members of her family including her father and his new family.

Jason Kidd Also Has 3 Children With His Wife Porschla

After his divorce was finalized in 2007, it took Jason Kidd around a year to find love in the arms of another woman, this time with a former model and actor named Porschla Coleman. Kidd’s wife was born on July 12, 1985, in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California. She became a model at some point in her life before giving it up to focus on her duties as the Executive Director of the Jason Kidd Foundation, a foundation designed to promote youth education, after her marriage to Kidd.

The couple began dating in 2008 but ultimately tied the knot on September 10,  2011, around 3 years after they had begun dating officially. Their marriage has produced 3 children, a son, and 2 daughters named Chance, Noah Grace, and Cooper Anne Kidd respectively.

Chance Kidd

  • Full Name: Chance Kidd
  • Date of Birth: 2010
  • Age: 52 years old
  • Mother: Porschla Kidd (nee Coleman)
  • Occupation: Student

Chance Kidd was born in 2010, around one year before his parents tied the knot. Beyond the fact that he seems to be steadfastly following in his father’s footsteps with hopes of playing in the NBA one day, not much is known about Chance Kidd, and that includes details of his formal education background.

Chance has a good relationship with his father and enjoys the privilege of getting tips on how to improve his game from the current head coach of the Dallas Mavericks.

Noah Grace Kidd

  • Full Name: Noah Grace Kidd
  • Date of Birth: 2012
  • Age: 52 years old
  • Mother: Porschla Kidd (nee Coleman)
  • Occupation: Student

Chance’s immediate younger sister, Noah Grace Kidd was born in 2012. Like her older brother, she lives her life away from the spotlight even though certain posts on her father’s Instagram page show that she might also grow up to become a basketball player in the WNBA. Her father has expressed how proud he is of his fourth daughter overall but first with his wife Porschla.

Cooper Anne Kidd

  • Full Name: Cooper Anne Kidd
  • Date of Birth: 2017
  • Age: 52 years old
  • Mother: Porschla Kidd (nee Coleman)
  • Occupation: Student

Cooper Anne is the youngest of all Jason Kids’ children. She was born in 2017 and is also growing up fast. During an interview, her mother described her as The Princess of the family, and we do not doubt that she would grow up to be just as beautiful as her mother and older sister Noah. 

Despite his apparent shortcomings, Jason Kidd seems like a dedicated father to at least 6 of his 8 children even though he might not be on the best of terms with some of them.

Jason Kidd Had His First Child In College

Jason Kidd stunned the general public when he chose to represent the Golden Bears of the University of California, Berkeley after he had been scouted by more highly ranked schools such as the University of California, Los Angeles, Ohio State University, University of Kansas, University of Kentucky, and the University of Arizona.

Suffice it to say that his impressive performances on the basketball court helped to improve the fortunes of the University’s basketball program during his stay there. However, Kidd was understandably popular off the court as well and probably had a lot of romantic flings with the women he met in college.

One of those women named Alexandria Brown ended up becoming the mother of his first child, a son that was named Jason Kidd Jr. after the former NBA star. Read on as we uncover all there is to know about Jason Kidd’s firstborn.

Jason Alexander Kidd Jr.

  • Full Name: Jason Alexander Kidd Jr.
  • Date of Birth: November 16, 1993
  • Age: 52 years old
  • Mother: Alexandria Brown

Jason Kidd’s eldest offspring was born Jason Alexander Kidd on November 16, 1993. When Kidd had Jason Jr., he was a rising basketball prodigy at the University of California, Berkeley who was tipped to achieve great things when he eventually makes it to the NBA. At the time Jason Jr.’s mother Alexandria Brown worked as a United Airlines Flight attendant.

Jason Kidd Jr. is a product of a one-night stand between his parents. His paternal grandmother accused his mother of being a gold digger after she filed a paternity suit following Jason Jr.’s birth. The first judge who reviewed the suit ordered the now Dallas Mavericks head coach to pay Alexandria $1,500 monthly; further suits saw that amount increased to $4,000 monthly.

Not much is known about Jason Kidd Jr.’s early life including where he was born, where he grew up, and where he is at the moment. It almost feels like Kidd’s oldest child has shunned the spotlight.  The air of mystery surrounding the celebrity son also extends to details of his formal educational background.

In a rare foray into the limelight, Jason Kidd jr. revealed that he was gay and that he was proud of his sexuality. He also stated that he was very ok with being the Pink Sheep of the Kidd dynasty. According to Jason jr.’s mother, father and son had a close relationship in his younger days. However, nothing recent suggests that that closeness survived to Jason jr.’s adulthood.

Jason Kidd Never Married The Mother Of His Second Child

Just a year after the very public fiasco that was the paternity suit involving his baby mama Alexandria Brown, Jason Kidd became involved with a different woman named Tgia Jones. Their very brief relationship produced a daughter named Cheyenne Kidd. Cheyenne has also chosen a life away from media and public scrutiny but she has been in the news in the past. Read on to find out why.

Cheyenne Kidd

  • Full Name: Cheyenne Kidd
  • Date of Birth: November 10, 1994
  • Age: 52 years old
  • Mother: Tgia Jones
  • Occupation: Model

Cheyenne Kidd was born on November 10, 1994, just six days to her older half-brother’s first birthday. Her mother’s name is Tgia Jones. Some sources are of the opinion that Cheyenne is a Trick baby because of the circumstances surrounding her birth. It was speculated that her mother entered a relationship with her father Jason for the sole purpose of becoming pregnant for him.

Those claims were vehemently refuted by Cheyenne’s mother who claims her motives were never as sinister as her accusers made it out to be and that she had instead hoped to build a lasting relationship with her daughter’s father but it was never meant to be.

Details of Cheyenne’s childhood have never been publicized but Jason Kidd’s eldest daughter reportedly struggled with drug abuse in her teenage years. By the time she was 17 years old, she had been in and out of rehab twice. Cheyenne said she turned to drugs as an outlet for her low self-esteem and feelings of despair.

She has managed to turn her life around and now works as a model with a number of brands. As of the time of writing, Cheyenne is the only one of Kidd’s children who has given him a grandchild. Jason Kidd became a grandfather on January 12, 2015, which was the date Cheyenne had her daughter Seyah

The identity of her daughter’s father is unknown at the moment but Cheyenne’s constant adulation of her daughter shows that she enjoys everything about being a mother, and this is despite not having a good relationship with her own father who she once described as a deadbeat dad.
