Kayden was born on America’s Independence Day, the 4th of July, in the year 2016. His birthplace is Louisiana which is his father’s hometown. His nationality is American, and his ethnicity is African American, just like his dad’s.

At the time that Kayden was born, his father was just a 16-year-old trying to pursue his music. Welcoming a child must have been daunting but YoungBoy relied on the help and support of loved ones to move forward.

In this way, he was able to care for his son. He also continued his music and is now a notable rapper in the U.S., with millions of records sold and numerous chart-topping hits.

Kayden Gaulden’s Nick Name is Draco

Kayden is fondly nicknamed Draco by his mom and other loved ones. He is presently 7 years old. The name of his school is not known but you can bet that it would be a quality one. Kayden’s parents shield him from the spotlight, but they are not overly strict in this regard.

His father often posts pictures of him on social media. His mom has also featured him on her Instagram live sessions on multiple occasions. Whenever she does this, there are numerous positive comments from fans who comment on how big Kayden has gotten or how cute he looks.

Kayden Gaulden’s Mother is a Louisiana Native Named Nisha Kella

Kayden Gaulden’s mother is Nisha Kella. She regularly appears on social media but it is difficult to get a hold of her background details, including the identity of her family members or her educational history. It is also hard to tell what she does for a living.

What is duly known about Kayden Gauldens’ mother is that she is of African-American ethnicity. She hails from Louisiana, just like her baby daddy – YoungBoy, and has American nationality. It is also reasonable to assume that Nisha Kella was born around 2003/2002. This is because she revealed that she was just 13 years old when she got pregnant with her son.

Nisha and NBA YoungBoy became parents to Kayden as teenagers. They relied on help to move forward and amongst those that were of big help to Nisha was her mother.

Kayden Has a Younger Sister Named Armani Gaulden

Kayden Gaulden has numerous siblings but the only full-blooded sibling that he has is a younger sister named Armani. They share the same father and the same mother. She was born in the year 2020, and he is about four years older than her. Kayden and his little sister primarily reside with their mother, but their dad maintains a strong presence in their lives.

NBA YoungBoy often takes Kayden to places, including bringing him along to his studio sessions and public performances. He also supports the family with their material needs. Their mother has, however, insinuated that he is a deadbeat dad showing that their relations have been strained at times.

For instance, in 2021, one of his baby mamas, Drea Symone, talked about being both father and mother and described it as no joke. She praised those who take up both responsibilities, and Nisha liked the post.

Later in 2022, Nisha shared an Instagram post in which she insinuated that her youngest, Armani, doesn’t recognize her dad. NBA YoungBoy has however, responded, revealing that Nisha denies him access to his daughter.

Kayden Gaulden Has Seven Half Siblings

Asides his younger sister Armani, Kayden Gaulden has seven younger paternal half-siblings. These are the other children that his father has welcomed with other women. The first on the list is Taylin, who was born in March 2017. His mother’s name is Tia, and Kayden is about eight months older than him. Next on the list is Kamiri Gaulden. Kayden is a year older than him, as he was born in July 2017. His mother is a businesswoman named Starr.

The third half-sibling that Kayden has is Kacey. He was born in 2019, which makes Kayden three years older than him. His mother, Jania, is a digital content creator. Kayden also has a younger half-sister named Kodi who is four years older than her, as she was born in November 2020 to NBA YoungBoy and his ex-girlfriend, Drea Symone.

Kayden also has a younger half-brother named Kentrell Jr, who was born in 2021 and is five years older than him. Next on the list of Kayden’s siblings are a younger half-sister named Alice (born in 2021) and a younger half-brother named Klemenza Tru (2022). Kayden is six years older than Klemenza.

Kayden Gaulden also has an adopted half-brother named Kamron, who was born in 2016, the same year as him. His father adopted Kamron, whose mother is Starr, after discovering that he wasn’t the biological father of the young man.

Kayden doesn’t have much of a relationship with his half-siblings presently, as they are all little and live with their respective moms. There is, however, that possibility that they would bond and grow closer as they get older, given that they run into each other at their dad’s.

Despite the tension between him and Nisha, one thing that is not in doubt is the amount of love that NBA YoungBoy has for Kayden. The superstar rapper often takes Kayden along to the studio for his recording sessions. He has also brought the young boy to witness some of his concerts.

Kayden was also featured in the music video for his father’s 2020 single titled Kacey’s Talk. He and his half-brother Kacey were shown doing recreational painting on a white wall near their dad.
