Kaari’s parents are African-Americans. Her father Ja Morant was born on August 10, 1999, in Dalzell, South Carolina, to Tee and Jamie Morant who are her grandparents. While her grandmother was a point guard in high school and a softball player in college, her grandfather played basketball semi-professionally and was a high school teammate of Ray Allen.

Ja Morant began his basketball career playing for his high school team at Crestwood High School in Sumter, South Carolina. He then proceeded to college, where he continued the pursuit of his dream by playing for Murray State briefly for 2 years. In 2019, he was drafted by Memphis Grizzlies as the overall second pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Kaari’s mother Kadre Dixon, famously known as KK Dixon, was born and raised in Arkansas, United States. She is the daughter of DeShannon and Christal Dixon. Not much is known about her parent’s background. It is unconfirmed the year she was born, however, speculations surrounding her date of birth suggest that she was born in the year 1999 or 2000.

The Arkansas born has two siblings, a brother and a sister named Tyrik and Braylee Dixon. While her brother Tyrik is a professional basketball player who plays for the Missouri State Bears, not much is known about her younger sister Braylee. Several reports indicate that the single mother is a student of Fisk University in New York and plays basketball and volleyball also.

How Kaari’s Parents Ja Morant and KK Dixon Met and Why They Separated

It is unclear when Kaari’s parents Ja Morant and KK Dixon started dating, it is however claimed that they have been together for a long period of time before they had her. Although Ja Morant’s life has always been in the spotlight since his basketball career blew up, the same could not be said about KK Dixon, who only became famous due to her association with Ja Morant.

Be that as it may, they both have been pretty good at keeping their personal life away from public reach and scrutiny. And they have done so well in keeping the start of the relationship a secret from the public. The one-time couple’s first hints to the public about something going on between them surfaced in 2018 when KK Dixon first shared a photo of them together on Snapchat.

One would think the famous duo having a baby together would unite them and push the relationship to the next level, but that was not the case for Kaari’s separated parents. The ex-couples went their separate ways immediately after the birth of their baby. Although they tried to hide their separations from their fans and the public, it was not long before the internet and social media enthusiasts were able to put the pieces together.

All their pictures together were noticed to have been deleted on social media, including the 2018 monumental picture that announced they were in a relationship together. A more conspicuous fact is that they both unfollowed each other on various social media platforms. It is unclear why they separated, as both parties have refused to shed light on the issue.

Kaari’s Relationship With Her Parents Made Her Famous

Kaari Jaidyn shares a very closely knitted bond with her parents, most especially her celebrity father. Even though she stays full-time with her mother, she gets to spend time with her father who never fails to tell the world how much of an inspiration she is to him whenever he gets the chance to.

Ja Morant has on several occasions brought his daughter to watch him play games against other basketball teams. Most times, they were spotted together after a game celebrating a win, with Kaari comfortably sitting on her father’s arm.

The 3-year-old may appear to have the whole of her father’s love and attention, but she spends most of her time with her mother. There is no doubt that both parents adore the adorable little baby and they have taken no chance in making her famous by sharing her with fans and followers on social media.

Who Has Custody of Kaari Jaidyn Morant?

Ja Morant and KK Dixon share joint custody of their daughter Kaari Jaidyn Morant. However, Kaari is reported to be staying with her mother. The duo, while being separated, are doing joint parenting in getting what is best for their daughter. They didn’t allow the separation to affect the love they have for their 3-year-old daughter.

Kaari stays with her mom as she is capable of bringing her up and at the same time offering the constant motherly presence the child deserves in her life. While she stays with her mom KK Dixon, her athletic father, who is often busy due to on-season always provides for her upkeep.

Aside from each parent contributing resourcefully to ensure her upkeep and development needs her met, Kaari occasionally brings them together to mark special events, holidays, or ceremonial gatherings. One could say Kaari is lucky to have two parents who care about her and take their time to show up even though they have personal issues with each other.

Kaari Jaidyn Morant’s Profession is Just Being a Celebrity Baby with a Social Media Presence

The 3-year-old baby celebrity is currently not up to three years old and has not been enrolled in any school yet. Regardless of her age, what baby Kaari does all day is bask in the euphoria of her parent’s fame and status, fully depending on them, and just enjoying her childhood.

With the help of her celebrity parent’s influence, the gorgeous little baby has a relatively big Instagram account with over 90k followers. Although we cannot confirm if her presence is also felt on other microblogging platforms, but she seems to be doing far better than most adults who use social media. Her Instagram handle is @kaarimorant.

Since she is too young to use the platform, we can assume that her parents jointly handle her Instagram account and take turns doing most of the postings on the network. The account provides a sneak peek into her life. Her dad has a wider fanbase with over 7 million followers drawn to his page, where he shares his career and personal activities to teeming fans.
