Family History, Birth, & Infancy
Kyrie was born on December 11, 2016, in the United States of America. He is about two years younger than his older brother DJ, who was born on February 9, 2015.
His parents Damien and Biannca met in the summer of 2012. During this period, they both worked at a Little Caesars Pizza restaurant in their hometown, Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was not long after that they began dating.
As the relationship developed between the two, they started to encounter various issues, including many relating to their financial situation. At one point, they were completely broke and were forced to leave their apartment and move into a motel. After DJ was born, Biannca once had to ask her mother for money so she could purchase food.
It was Damien’s decision to start a YouTube channel, hoping that it would garner people’s attention and relieve at least some of their financial woes. The original channel, which is now known as D&B Nation, was set up on March 11, 2016, and the oldest video on the channel was posted in June that year.
The earlier content on Kyrie’s parents’ channel was mostly reaction videos. Soon enough, they became one of the fastest growing channels on the site, garnering twenty to twenty-five thousand subscribers every day. Initially, they had named the channel ‘Couple Reacts’ but as they began making other types of videos, such as vlogs, live-streams, challenges, Q&As, pranks, etc., they rebranded it as ‘D&B Nation.’ They eventually had to find themselves a manager as the channel grew exponentially over a period of time. On August 23, 2016, they established another channel, ‘The Prince Family.’
Biannca had become pregnant with Kyrie sometime in early 2016. In November, during her baby shower, Damien proposed to her. During Kyrie’s birth, his parents vlogged through the entire process and the original video of it gained millions of views.
In early 2017, the hectic schedule that daily vloggers have to maintain and the constant exposure of their personal lives took a toll on Damien and Biannca. After a serious argument, that started because Damien was trying to film a prank video, Biannca left their home with Kyrie and DJ. In the ensuing months, they both tried to mend their relationship but nothing seemed to work. Eventually, with the help of their manager, they got back together. Biannca, Kyrie and DJ subsequently moved back into the house.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5LGPvoUOfwcLi4Ck8LiR4A/videos
After Kyrie’s birth, Biannca was diagnosed with postpartum depression or PPD, which is a type of mood disorder that both sexes (predominantly women) can experience after childbirth. Several of the symptoms of the disorder explained Biannca’s behaviour at the time.
Biannca and Damien got married in March 2017 but things did not really go according to their plans. Damien’s father showed up and voiced his objection to the union. The situation only escalated from there as Damien got into a physical altercation with his father and Biannca started crying. Eventually, things did settle down and they were able to complete the ceremony. Since then, the legibility of the entire situation has been questioned by the fans.
In 2017, their channel was apparently taken over by a hacker. However, it turned out to be a prank orchestrated by one of their affiliates, a Las Vegas-based entrepreneur named Brad Lea. In August 2018, Biannca announced that she was pregnant again. They later revealed that they were expecting a girl.
Kyrie has appeared in most of his parents’ content since his birth. He is a constant feature in their vlogs and often, an active participant. Like his older brother, he is growing up in front of the millions who follow his family channels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddekIaZBUWc
