Meet Lauren Chen’s Parents and Family
Lauren was born to a Canadian mother and her father, K Chen, who is from Hong Kong. While reports suggest that Lauren’s father is a businessman and her mother is a housewife, concrete information about her family remains limited.
Her upbringing reflects a fusion of cultural backgrounds. This blending of diverse influences has contributed to shaping Chen’s unique identity. Together with her younger sibling, the podcaster spent her childhood years in the vibrant city of Hong Kong.
On top of that, Chen has not even let her mother’s and brother’s names out to the public.
Furthermore, Lauren once posted her parents’ wedding pictures and has very few times mentioned them on her Twitter. Still, the way she maintains their privacy is commendable.
Lauren’s Father’s a Liver Cancer Survivor
Her dad was diagnosed with liver cancer back in 2020. In one of her emotional Twitter videos, she talked about how bad the Canadian health system was since they had to wait weeks to get a surgery appointment.
For that reason, she posted the video asking if people in her audience knew any health professionals or doctors to get her dad the surgery. People supported her and made positive comments about helping her, so, a GoFundMe was started in the name of her father which raised over $105,000 to support Lauren’s dad getting the surgery in the USA.
She shared heartwarming pictures of her dad when she was happy about the funding’s progress. A line in the post that was really amazing was, “He was more upset when he was told to cut out carbs than when he was told he has cancer.”
On 29 October 2020, Lauren announced that her dad had a successful surgery.
About Lauren’s Brother
Lauren has a younger brother whose identity is unknown. She has sometimes posted glimpses about her brother and even has a Youtube video with him. In the video she talked about his brother was going to start a gaming Youtube channel soon, but, we cannot find the channel now in 2023.

Despite occasional mentions and glimpses into their bonding, Chen has maintained a certain level of privacy when it comes to her brother’s identity. She has refrained from publicly tagging or revealing his name.
