Johnson was also included in Forbes’ “Top Ten Beauty Influencers of 2017.”

Kandee Johnson Was Born to Shannon and Barney Johnson

Kandee Johnson’s parents are named Shannon and Barney Johnson, but her father passed away in 2012. She explained that the loss of her father was extremely hard on her, and she still gets very emotional when talking about him.

Her sister was diagnosed with Lyme disease, but she overcame her illness. And now, her health is much better.

Tiffany Meyers is married to Byron Meyers. The couple has two daughters together named Sydney and Audrey Meyers.

Byron Meyers graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Kandee Johnson Was Married Twice and Has Four Kids

Kandee Johnson has four kids named Alani Johnson, Ellie Johnson, Jordan Sannicks, and Blake Johnson.

According to reports, she was married twice and is divorced. Her first marriage was at the age of 17. She gave birth to her first child when she was 18 years old.

But Johnson’s first husband was reportedly verbally abusive and controlling. So, she decided to end the marriage and leave to raise her first child on her own. It was tough, and she had to shell out a lot of money for her son’s daycare.

Her son, Jordan Sannicks, is now an aspiring model who walked in the Prada show for Milan fashion week. He is from her first marriage.

Sannicks started out as a Los Angeles-based visual artist before he was a model. He is signed to L.A. Models.

Kandee Johnson got married for the second time and welcomed her second child, Alani Johnson. But she was not happy in this marriage either because they hardly knew each other.

When they were talking about getting a divorce, Johnson discovered that she was pregnant with her third child, who she named Blake Johnson.

For a while, things became really difficult for her as she was a single mother of three kids, raising them without financial or emotional support. But you won’t find many pictures of Kandee Johnson’s kids online.

Johnson’s second ex-husband asked her to not reveal the faces of their two kids before their custody hearing. It doesn’t look like things ended well.

But she moved on and found love again. And on September 13, 2015, Johnson got engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Michael Castro.

Kandee Johnson’s fiancé is also active on YouTube and creates videos on his channel. He is the singer of Castro the Band.

The way they met each other was really cute. For one of her new videos, Johnson asked people to tweet her new questions.

So, Castro jumped at the opportunity and tweeted, “Can I take you out to dinner?”

Johnson said, “Yes,” but they lived in different parts of the country.

Eventually, they started talking, and a few weeks later, Johnson was working at a festival near Castro. So, he drove down to the location and spent some time with her.

The two were often featured on each other’s channels and made fans laugh with their adorable antics together. But it’s been quiet on both ends lately, as neither has posted about each other in quite some time. However, there has yet to be confirmation of a break-up.

She is very much active on social media, particularly Instagram. Kandee Johnson’s Instagram account has 1.8 million followers. She loves to post photos of her work, her kids, and her family on the photo-sharing app.
