Member of the Hawaiian-based girl band The Lylas, Jaime Kailani is the second eldest in the Hernandez household. From the very beginning, the parents of the singer-producer helped her in polishing her skills.
The mother of two is also one of Bruno Mars’ sisters. The gifted artist is more than just being linked to the 11-times Grammy Award winner. Below, let us discuss the 7 interesting facts about Jaime Kailani to know her better.
Peter Hernandez Not Her Real Father
Both of Jaime Kailani’s parents were also gifted artists. The 37-year-old’s father, Peter Hernandez, was a percussionist for Cecilio & Kapono and Love & Money. Kailani’s mother, Bernadette San Pedro Bayot, on the other hand, was a hula dancer.
Apparently, the pop singer is Bernadette’s daughter from her previous relationship with Christopher Bayot. Information regarding the Latin dance instructor’s love life with the hula dancer is minimal. Despite that, the percussionist legally adopted her and raised her in a loving family environment.
Bruno Mars’ sister is still close with her biological father and often spends time together.
Five Talented Siblings
The Hawaiian native has two brothers and three sisters, and everyone is a gem of their own. Aside from the 24K Magic singer, her other brother is Eric Hernandez, a.k.a E-Panda. Endorsed by many major music institutions, the modern drummer was a former LAPD officer.
