If you are a huge Bruno Mars fan, then the name Tahiti Hernandez may sound familiar. The 33-year-old is the pop sensation’s sister and the second youngest in the Hernandez household.
Looking into Tahiti Hernandez’s life, we can see her transition from one occupation to another, which is similar to her love life. Without any further ado, let us talk about Bruno Mars’ sister Tahiti Hernandez to understand her better.
Born To Performers And Raised In Hawaii
Similar to her multiple award-winning brother, Tahiti Hernandez was raised in Hawaii. The Oahu resident is the second youngest of Peter Hernandez, a talented percussionist & Bernadette San Pedro Bayot, a hula dancer.
Tahiti’s father played for Love & Money and Cecilio & Kapono, giving him success on American soil. Papa Hernandez also included his children in his performance, which helped them establish a career in music. Singing and music were not the only forms of art taught in the Hernandez household.
Tahiti, along with 3 other sisters, also performed hula dances which majorly contributed to keeping the spirit of Hawaii alive. Aside from her two brothers, all of Tahiti Hernandez’s siblings are situated in Hawaii.
Surrounded By Talented Siblings
Aside from the Uptown Funk singer, Tahiti Hernandez has four other siblings one of whom is adopted. The eldest child of Peter Hernandez is Eric “E-Panda” Hernandez, a modern drummer who has his own signature drum line and who was once a police officer.

Tahiti Hernandez’s other siblings are Tiara Hernandez, Presley Hernandez, and half-sister Jaime Kailani. The ladies of the Hernandez households are very gifted as they all are excelling in their life. All of them are natives of Hawaii, and some are even married to fellow Hawaiian.
Hernandez, along with her sisters, has played a major part in promoting the Aloha lifestyle and has kept the spirit of Hawaii alive.
Tahiti Hernandez, with her sisters, was part of a TV reality show, titled The Lylas which means “Love You Like A Sister.” It was not only the title of the show but also the name of the Hernandez sisters’ music band.
The show, which aired in 2013, deals with independent women leaving their house and even loved ones to pursue their passion for singing. Aside from the reality show, the girl band has a handful of hits and once even performed as a surprise guest in X-Factor, USA.
Although Lylas are yet to collaborate with their 24K Magic singer brother, Tahiti and her sisters have had a successful musical career.
Tahiti Has Married Twice
The 33-year-old singer-producer has a major weakness for Hawaiian boys as both her ex-husband and husband are cool Hawaiian dudes. Tahiti was previously married to Joshua Sojot, a DJ who has collaborated with Jay Z and Kanye West.
There is minimal information available regarding the Lylas star’s lovelife with the Hawaiian DJ. The former love birds ended things in 2013, and are blessed with two beautiful sons.
Dating for a couple of years and finally tying the knot in 2018, Bruno Mars’ sister is enjoying a happily married life with professional Big Wave-Surfer, i.e., Billy Kemper. The 29-year-old, also a Hawaiin native, has won multiple awards and trophies in the major surfing circuit.
With the decorated surfer, Tahiti Hernandez welcomed two other wonderful sons.
Mother Of Four
The Comeback singer, as mentioned above, is a mother of four. Though separated from her ex-husband, she still maintains good relation with the Hawaiian DJ due to their children. The Tahiti Hernandez’s sons with her ex-partner are Nyjah Music and Zyah Rhythm.
The middle names are inspired by Tahiti’s family’s love and passion for music. Nyjah and Zyah also enjoy quality time with their aunty Tiara Bella Hernandez who works as a music teacher. They even collaborated for the song “I love Hawaii,” which promotes Tahiti’s sisters’ music festival.

With Billy Kemper, Bruno Mars’ sibling has two other beautiful sons. Lion Kemper and Hazey Kemper are more into surfing, unlike their half brothers who are into music. Both Lion and Hazey often train together with their surfer dad.
Owner Of Uproar Fitness & A Fitness Instructor
Bruno Mars’ sister, Tahiti Hernandez’s marriage with Billy Kemper led her to promote a healthier lifestyle. So much so, nowadays the singer has become a certified fitness instructor and a social media influencer.
The mother of four even has her own gym, i.e., Uproar Fitness. The fitness instructor prefers CrossFit training with a bit of weight lifting. Uproar Fitness, located in North Oahu, is a lively fitness center, and both the couples are often present. The gym also has its own social media page where you can find all the activities done there along with their member’s stories.
Endorsed By Fitness Companies
Despite being Bruno Mars’ sister, Tahiti Hernandez has made a name for herself through fitness. As mentioned above, the fitness instructor is the owner of Uproar Fitness and is endorsed by a couple of fitness companies.
Ethika is one of the companies that has endorsed the Uproar Fitness owner. The fitness apparel brand focuses more on clothing rather than equipment and gear.
Besides enjoying her family’s company, Tahiti Hernandez is busy living a fit and healthy lifestyle. We wish the very best for the Hawaiian native to continue living a happy and prosperous life with her family.
