Meet Penny Hardaway’s Daughters LaTanfernee and Layla Hardaway

Penny Hardaway’s daughters are LaTanfernee and Layla Hardaway, both of whom he had with Latarsha McCray, his ex-girlfriend from high school, during the early to mid-1990s.

Penny Hardaway’s relative celebrity status has invariably placed members of his family in the spotlight, and this article focuses on his two daughters, LaTanfernee and Layla Hardaway. Meet them.

Penny Hardaway’s Daughters

In all, Penny Hardaway is a father of four children which includes his two daughters, LaTanfernee and Layla Hardaway. Born Anfernee Deon Hardaway on July 18, 1971, in Memphis, Tennessee, United States, the nickname Penny was adapted from his grandmother, Louise, calling him Pretty with a southern drawl, and it always sounded like Penny.

Penny earned his high school diploma at Treadwell High School. However, an aspect of his life that is not readily apparent is the fact that he met the mother of his daughters while in high school. Her name is Latarsha McCray, but compared to Penny, her public profile is not as expansive.

We have yet to ascertain the finer details of their relationship, but we can confirm that they never married and that Penny became a father for the first time while still in college. He had been an NBA star for a couple of years when his second child, another daughter was born.


As previously indicated, this article focuses on the lives and activities of Penny Hardaway’s daughters, LaTanfernee and Layla Hardaway.

LaTanfarnee Hardaway Is Penny Hardaway’s Oldest Daughter

  • Date of birth: July 30, 1992
  • Age: 31 years old
  • Mother: Latarsha McCray

LaTanfarnee Hardaway was born on July 30, 1992, in Memphis, Tennessee, United States. She is currently 31 years old. Her birth sign is Leo and she is an American citizen by birth.

LaTanfernee Hardaway is Penny Hardaway’s oldest daughter, but she is also the oldest of his four children. She is a product of her father’s relationship with his ex-girlfriend from high school, Latarsha McCray.


Not much information is available regarding her mother at present, including how long she dated her father and where she is at present. As previously mentioned, LaTanfernee’s parents met in high school and carried on their relationship well after her birth.

To put things in a clearer perspective, LaTanfernee Hardaway was already a big sister and reportedly around 8 years old when her parents’ relationship came to an end. It wasn’t amicable either because her mom filed a domestic violence case against her dad, alleging that he yelled at her while carrying a handgun.


LaTanfernee’s dad denied the claims, but the case was later settled after the now-Memphis Tigers men’s team head coach agreed to pay child support, as well as $1,815 for his ex-girlfriend’s annual health insurance.

LaTanfernee Hardaway Is An Entrepreneur

Even though she comes across as a sufficiently educated individual, details of LaTanfernee’s formal educational background are currently unknown. However, close sources have unveiled the fact that she is a successful entrepreneur and social media personality.

Her business endeavors primarily revolve around the jewelry line that she owns. She is the CEO of LHXCollection, a business she started more than a decade ago and built to great success. The jewelry shop sells pendants, necklaces, and other eye-catching jewelry.

She Is Already A Mother

LaTanfernee Hardaway became a mother for the first time on June 19, 2022, when she welcomed her son, Ray Chesterfield III, with her long-term partner, Ray Chesterfield II. Not so much information is available about the father of her child as well as when they became a couple.


We can confirm, though, that they are not yet married to each other even though they are still in a relationship filled with a love that has been further solidified through the birth of their son.

Layla Hardaway Is Penny Hardaway’s Youngest Daughter

  • Date of birth: 1995
  • Age: 29 years old
  • Mother: Latarsha McCray

Layla Hardaway is the youngest of the two children Penny Hardaway had with Latarsha McCray. She is also the basketball coach’s youngest daughter. She was born in 1995, in Memphis, Tennessee, United States, just about three years after the birth of her older sister, LaTanfernee.

Like LaTanfernee, Layla was relatively young when her parents ended their relationship following the domestic abuse case her mother filed against her dad. A more accurate statement of fact is that she was just about five years old when the relationship between her parents hit the rocks.

Given that her father was ordered to pay child support, it supports the theory that she and her sister were raised by their mother. We have yet to ascertain what that meant for the relationship between Layla and her father, but everything about them now indicates that they found a way to get past the grievances of old.

She Maintains A Low Public Profile

Compared to her sister, Layla Hardaway’s public profile is relatively low. It essentially means that we have no clue about her formal educational background. The lack of information about her further extends to what she does for a living, a piece of information that may have been available if she had a credible social media presence.

With regard to her personal life, we are also not able to determine if the 29-year-old is in a romantic relationship or not because, amongst other things, she keeps those details of her life away from the media and the general public.

LaTanfernee and Layla Hardaway Have Two Half-Brothers

At the beginning of this article, we revealed that LaTanfernee and Layla Hardaway are only two of Penny Hadaway’s four children. We feel it is only fair to reveal the identities of LaTanfernee and Layla’s half-siblings.

Following the end of his relationship with their mother, Penny Hardaway had a romantic relationship with a couple of other women, and those relationships subsequently led to the birth of two sons.

The oldest of the celebrity daughters’ half-brothers is a young man named Jayden Hardaway. He is a product of their father’s relationship with a woman named Nikki Ward. Jayden plays under his father in the Memphis Tigers men’s basketball team.

The youngest of the bunch, a half-brother named Ashton Hardaway, is a product of their father’s relationship with a woman named Dionne. Ashton is also a basketball player and was quite instrumental in the Duncanville High basketball team that won the state championship in March 2022.
