Mikey Tua was born on June 12, 2002, in Silverdale, Washington, to Katie and Delvin Tua. Jojo, born on September 27, 2000, is about two years older than him. His love for the performing arts developed early. At the age of eight, he began taking dance lessons. Ballet is his favorite dance form. Tua is home-schooled and currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
He is dating singer and social media influencer Danielle Cohn. They had known each for quite some time before they started dating. When they met, Cohn was already in a relationship, so Tua kept his distance. It is only after she and her previous boyfriend parted ways that they began dating. Cohn has stated that she admires Tua’s kindness. He once even saved her life. It occurred on Tua’s birthday in 2018. They were travelling in a car together. He was sitting right behind the driver whereas Cohn was sitting in the middle seat. She had the seat belt tied around her waist. They were in a car accident and the back of the car subsequently lifted, throwing Cohn forward. She blacked out soon after the accident occurred but Tua never did. He put his arm around her and pulled her back, preventing her from smashing into the windscreen. They were taken to a hospital where it was discovered that her collarbone was broken and that she needed immediate surgery. Tua, on the hand, escaped with minor injuries.
