His parents’ involvement and support have greatly contributed to his football career and success. Here, we’ll cover more about Kylian Mbappé’s parents, ethnicity, and family background.

Who are Kylian Mbappe’s parents?

Mbappé’s mother, Fayza Lamari, is famous for being an iron lady as she is fully involved in her son’s football career, including contracts and transfers. 

Fayza was a former Division 1 handball player for the AS Bondy and French national teams.

Mbappe’s biological father, Wilfried Mbappé, is of Cameroonian descent. He is a football coach and acted as Kylian Mbappé’s agent until his son signed with the WME Sports Agency in 2022.

He migrated from Cameroon to France to pursue his football career. As a football coach, he regularly trained and coached Mbappé at an early age.

Wilfried Mbappé has played for many French teams, such as AS Monaco and AS Bondy. He has also worked as a coach for AS Bondy youth team for 25 years, where he trained Kylian as a young player. 

Therefore, Kylian Mbappé’s ethnicity is Algerian-Cameroonian and French. He was raised in an athletic family, with his siblings participating in different levels of sport too.

Kylian’s mother is a professional lawyer but is currently the president of the KEWJF and Saziley Companies, a family business. 

There were rumours that his mother attributed to his son’s transfer from PSG to Real Madrid, which many fans were unhappy about. 

It is no secret that she publicly praises, defends, and admires her son on social media and in the press. She is also responsible for his contracts alongside Mbappé’s father and lawyer.

Are Kylian Mbappé’s parents still married?

Kylian Mbappé’s parents married secretly in the early 1990s after dating for a few years. 

In 2021, information circulated that they were separated and divorced the same year. However, they are on good terms and work together for their son’s and the family business’s success.
