If you’re on TikTok, there is no doubt that you’ve either seen a Bella Poarch video. The social media sensation has one of the most popular accounts on the platform when it comes to views, likes, and followers.
When her simple but captivating videos began to go viral, she capitalized on the fame and is now even throwing her hat into the ring to be the next pop princess.
With so much popularity and success, it’s no wonder fans are curious about her family. Does she have any siblings? We have all the details below!
Bella Poarch introduced her followers to her "sister" in September 2023.
In a TikTok video captioned, "Happy birthday little sister," Bella's sister Amelia made her TikTok debut. The fun video quickly garnered over 1 million likes, and Bella's followers were a little confused.
It turns out Amelia is not literally Bella's sister, just a close friend of the influencer.
"They’re not actually sisters it’s what girls call each other when they’re really close friends," one follower commented, clearing up the confusion.
Amelia Wu is actually a popular TikToker as well, who is better known as Princess Amelia on the social media app and has over 5 million followers.
So, does Bella Poarch have siblings?
While she boasts a very public TikTok account with 71.1 million followers, she has kept her family life quite private.
She did, however, reveal in a TikTok video that she was adopted. The social media star took part in a "Two Truths and a Lie" game tag, after being tagged by fellow TikTok legend Addison Rae. One of the truths confirmed that Bella was actually adopted.
She also revealed that she has three adopted siblings. She also has sisters back in the Philippines. However, their identities are not known.
Bella was adopted by her parents Kenneth and Eden Taylor Eden when she was 3 years old.
According to her Wikipedia page, Bella was raised in the Philippines by her grandmother until she was adopted by an American father, who was serving in the American military, and her Filipino mother.
In an interview on the H3 podcast, Bella shared that she and her adopted brother were heavily abused, but her two older sisters did not receive the same treatment.
Bella joined the U.S. Navy in 2015.
Something truly interesting about Bella is that before her rise to TikTok fame, she enlisted in the armed forces. She spoke to Vogue about her time in the military, explaining that she joined to feel more “free.”
“I wanted to be free. I wanted to be independent. As weird as it sounds, the Navy allowed me to feel that way,” she explained.
Bella, who is Filipino-American, also spoke about the AAPI hate in the country and how she has special skills learned in the Navy that she could use if she ever needed to protect an Asian-American person who is being attacked.
“My time in the military doesn’t affect my view on what’s going on in the country within the AAPI community. I think what’s happening [with anti-Asian-American violence] in our country is terrible and there are flaws in everything," she added. "But I’ll tell you one thing: if I ever see someone getting attacked, I will use everything I ever learned in the military to dismantle them.”
