Tyler James Williams Siblings: Meet His Brothers Tylen and Tyrel

Tyler James Williams’s siblings are two; his immediate younger brother, Tyrel Jackson Williams, and Tylen Jacob Williams, who is the youngest among them.

Tyler James Williams’s brothers are both younger than him and are also in the movie industry. Tyrel has appeared in a handful of movies and TV series, including Failure To Launch (2006) and Lab Rats (2012-2016) amongst several others. Tylen, on the other hand, is best remembered for his starring role as James Philips in the TV comedy series Instant Mom (2013-2015).

The oldest of the Williams trio, Tyler James Williams, doesn’t need too much of an introduction as his break-out role as Chris Rock in the UPN/CW series Everybody Hates Chris (2005-2009) set him up nicely for a thriving career in Hollywood. In this article, we focus on his younger brothers, who, as previously mentioned, are actors in their own rights.

Meet Tyler’s Immediate Younger Brother Named Tyrel Jackson Williams,

Summary of Tyrel Jackson Williams’s Bio

  • Name: Tyrel Jackson “TJ” Williams
  • Date of birth: March 16, 1997
  • Age: 27 years old
  • Occupation: Actor, musician
  • Mother: Angela Williams

Tyrel Jackson Williams Was Born In New York

Tyrel Jackson Williams was born on March 16, 1997, in Westchester County, New York, United States, under the birth sign of Pisces. He is an American citizen by birth and belongs to the African American ethnic group. The young actor is 27 years old now.

TJ Williams, as he is fondly called, is the second of three sons born to African American couple Le’roy and Angela Williams. His father retired after working as a teacher and NYPD sergeant while his mother is a singer/songwriter, minister, businesswoman, and manager.

He spent his formative years in New York living in neighborhoods like Yonkers, Bronx, and Westchester County where he was born. However, details of his formal education background are fuzzy due to his early involvement in show business.

He Started Acting When He Was Seven Years Old

Tyrel Jackson Williams, just like his brothers, started acting from a very young age. He drew inspiration from his older brother, Tyler, who began acting at the age of 4. Even though he started 3 years later at the age of 7, it’s still an impressive achievement that he can be proud of.

Having begun his movie career in an uncredited role in the 2004 animation film Sesame Street: Happy Healthy Monsters, the Pants on Fire star has managed to rack up more than 20 movies and TV series credits to his name since making his debut as a 7-year-old.

Some of his notable works include Failure To Launch (2006), The Bachelors (2017), Thunder Force (2021), Hollywood Stargirl (2022), and all 98 episodes of Lab Rats (2012-2016) where he was the show’s main character. At this point, we would like to point out that the actor played a bit-part role in Everybody Hates Chris as a baby version of his older brother’s character, Chris.

Meanwhile, Tyrel Jackson Williams has a very good relationship with his older brother, Tyler James Williams.

TJ Williams Is Active On Social Media

TJ Williams has a fairly active social media life. His Instagram page, @tyrel_j_will, has about 125 posts with over 203k followers. On Twitter, he is known as @Tyreljwill and the page has more than 115k followers.

He Has Kept Details Of His Romantic Life Away From The Public

Tyrel James Williams’ younger brother has found a way to keep details of his personal life away from the public. While we can confirm that the Lab Rats star is not married, we have no way of determining if he is in a romantic relationship or not because of his very private lifestyle in that area.

However, based on his social media platforms and what we have seen of the young actor so far, it would appear that Tyrel Jackson Williams is very much single as of 2022.

Meet Tylen Jacob Williams, The Youngest of Tyler James Williams’s Siblings

Summary of Tylen Jacob Williams’s Bio

  • Name: Tylen Jacob Williams
  • Date of birth: December 8, 2001
  • Age: 22 years old
  • Occupation: Actor
  • Mother: Angela Williams

Tylen Jacob Williams Is The Youngest Of The Williams Brothers

Tylen Jacob Williams was born on December 8, 2001, in Westchester County, New York, United States. His birth sign is Sagittarius and he belongs to the African American ethnic group. Given the status of his birth in the United States, Tylen Jacob Williams identifies as an American citizen.


Tylen Jacob Williams is the youngest of three sons born to his parents. Tylen Williams’ life follows pretty much the same trajectory as those of his older brothers, Tyler and Tyrel, in the sense that he also spent most of his childhood growing up in the Bronx, Westchester County, and Yonkers.

Similarly to them as well, details of his formal education background have been overshadowed by the fact that he joined the movie business as a very young infant.

He Also Started Acting From A Very Young Age

The youngest Williams brother was introduced to the world of acting as a 3-month-old baby turning out in commercials for top companies at the time. When he appeared in the animation series Sesame Street, it marked the start of his on-screen acting career and he has carried on from there.

To date, Tylen Jacob Williams’ IMDb page shows that he has just over five acting credits to his name, which goes to show that he is not as popular as his older brothers in that regard. After appearing in 2 episodes of Everybody Hates Chris, in the role of Baby Drew, Tylen Jacob Williams went on to star in all 65 episodes of Instant Mom where he portrayed the character James Phillips.

The series, which ran from 2013 to 2015, essentially became his calling card but he has only managed a combined 2-episode appearance in two other TV series, Captain Jake And The Neverland Pirates (2011-2016) and Wisdom of The Crowd (2017-2018), since then.

Despite the near 10 years age difference between them, Tylen Jacob Williams has a very good relationship with his oldest sibling Tyler James Williams.

Tylen Jacob Williams Is Also Active On Social Media

The Instant Mom celebrity has an active social media life. His Instagram page @tylenjacobwill has amassed more than 24.5k followers while on Twitter where he is known as @TylenJacobWill, the singer and actor has only managed to garner just over 120 followers, a metric that shows that he is not as active on that platform as he is on Instagram.

He Also Keeps His Personal Affairs From The Public

At the moment, it would appear that Tylen Jacob Williams prefers to keep a low profile when it comes to details of his love life. Nothing about the way he conducts his affairs in public suggests that he has a woman in his life as a girlfriend. As of 2022, he is most certainly not married and does not have any children.

The Williams Brothers Are Not Related To The Williams Sisters

While they share the same last name, Tyler James Williams and his siblings are not related to the famous tennis legends, Serena and Venus Williams. In terms of popularity, most would agree that the Williams sisters are far bigger deals than the Williams brothers.
