The daughter of boxing legend Mike Tyson was born in December 2008 in the United States of America, and her mother is Lakiha Spicer. So, how old is Milan Tyson? Milan Tyson's age is 13 years but will be 14 in December 2022.
The teenager lives with her parents and siblings in their Henderson, Nevada mansion in the United States. Milan Tyson's siblings are six, although one of them, Exodus, passed away. Apart from Morocco, others are her stepbrothers and stepsisters born from her father's earlier marriages.
Career and aspirations
Milan fell in love with tennis as a little girl and saw role models in the Williams sisters, Venus and Serena, and Novak Djokovic. She has since converted her love for the sport and admiration for the tennis stars into active training and participation in tennis competitions.
According to her father, Milan stays working out in the gym for close to 10 hours. She is still in high school, but that does not stop her from focusing on tennis.
Milan Tyson's ITF aspirations might have taken a great leap with the news that she occasionally trains and plays the sport with her role models. However, she is getting her training from the best hands. Interestingly, she is sometimes coached by Patrick Mouratoglou, who coaches Serena Williams and Coco Gauff.
Milan Tyson's tennis ranking is not at her best yet since she is still learning the ropes of the game as a junior tennis player. Nevertheless, she is eyeing the top spot if her association with female tennis champion Serena Williams is to go by.
Milan Tyson's parents
The upcoming lawn tennis celebrity's parents are Lakiha Spicer and Mike Tyson. The duo got married in 2009 after Lakiha became pregnant and delivered their daughter Milan in 2008; however, they have known each other for more extended periods.
The couple is perfect for each other, and this may not be far from the fact that they have both been involved in controversies that have seen them imprisoned at separate times in their lives. However, they had each other's back in those moments, and even though Mike Tyson had been married twice, it was no surprise that he eventually settled down and started a family with Lakiha.
When people ask questions like, "Is Mike Tyson's daughter playing tennis?" it may not be far from the fact that anyone would have thought that the only befitting sport for a Tyson is boxing. However, Mike, nicknamed the baddest man on earth, has supported his last daughter's choice of sport. He said that tennis had changed his family's life forever. In his words:
I thought we were doing well, and everything and everything we were doing was making money, but that's not bigger than my daughter playing tennis. She's bigger than everything in our life now. I see her transcending into something she would never have before if she hadn't got involved in tennis.
This 13-year-old is still all about chasing her dreams of becoming a tennis star and fashion celebrity. So, Milan Tyson's husband's conversation is unnecessary at this point in her life.
The same goes for any discussion of Milan Tyson's daughters. She is not a mother yet and is not likely to be one in a couple of years to come.
Milan Tyson's net worth
The teenager lives in luxury with the rest of her family, all thanks to the type of wealth that her father accumulated during his active time in the ring. The man is estimated to have a worth of $10 million.
Similarly, according to The Parsonage website, the young tennis player is worth about $500,000. Worthy of note is that besides playing tennis, Milan is also a fashionpreneur. She started a fashion line, Milanmiyla, and a site committed to promoting her tye and dye clothing line.
Milan Tyson is an ideal example of the "catch them young mantra," although she is the one who seems to have caught her dream early enough to know what she wants with her life. So, it will be no surprise when she turns out even greater than her father ever was in a couple of years to come.
According to the post, the entrepreneur, mentor, activist, fashionista, and philanthropist and her husband Emmitt Smith recently parted ways. Check the post to learn more.
