Here are all the details about the footballer’s parents.

Who Are Kayvon Thibodeaux’s Parents?

The Giant’s linebacker, Kayvon, was born to African American parents, Angelo Thibodeaux and Shwanta Loice. The couple welcomed their bundle of joy on December 15, 2000, and his mother raised him in Los Angeles, California.

After separating from Shwanta, Angelo remarried. However, his Facebook profile states that he is single.

The Footballer’s Relationship With His Dad

The NFL star has not disclosed much about his pops in the media as much as he does about his mother. However, when talking about Angelo, he mentioned that he is a “great guy.” Likewise, he recalled his pops saying, “I’m gonna give you the tools, but you gotta build your own house.”

Even though the father-son duo didn’t spend much time together, it seems like Angelo has been a protective father. While talking about his experience as a parent, seeing his 8th-grader son getting offers from schools with great promises, Angelo said,

It was amazing but it also made me want to hold him tighter. As a parent, it made me want to shield him even more.

Kayvon Thibodeaux’s Mother is his “momager”

Not much has been revealed about Shwanta’s personal life. However, it has been reported that Thibodeaux’s old woman has been like his manager ever since he was playing in high school. Even during his early career days, he had made a tweet asking for people to contact her if they wanted to get any information about him.

Loice started managing everything for her son when people from schools and universities started complaining that they had to go through many people to contact Kayvon. In the same way, the linebacker believed that no one had his best interest at heart as his mom did, and it was easier when she handled everything for him.

Loice raised him well despite a lot of difficulties

Apart from being his “momager,” Kayvon has always appreciated Shwanta for her hard work and everything she did to keep the family happy.

Talking about their struggle in the past, he mentioned that there were 7 of them living in a two-bedroom apartment, including Shwanta, her brother, and his family. Likewise, the mother of one used to work two jobs to provide for them.

Shwanta Loice played the role of Kayvon’s father as well

Loice has been vocal that her primary role as a parent is “to be a protector.” She fulfilled her role by being both a dad and mom to Kayvon. Furthermore, on Father’s Day in 2016, Kayvon made a heartfelt tweet on X wishing his old woman.

Even when he was drafted into the NFL, it was only Loice who appeared and reacted to him being drafted. However, most of the other players had both their parents or loved ones. As Shawanta began expressing her pride and love for her son, Kayvon revealed that she has always told him to be “somebody to somebody.”

The NFL Star is a mama’s boy

If you’ve followed Kayvon on his X for a long time, you would surely know how much of a mama’s boy he is. His tweets used to be mostly about either football or his guardian. From posting her dance moves to sharing funny conversations with her, Kayvon loved sharing stories about his mom.

Even when talking to the media, Shwanta has revealed that her son talks about everything with her. If Kayvon is unsure about anything, he knows to ask her, and she does everything possible to figure things out.

Kayvon gifted a house to Loice

The 23-year-old grabbed media attention and made his fans emotional after gifting a beautiful house to his mama. He posted a short video on his YouTube, surprising Loice and talking about how he got there.

During high school, Kavyon lived with another family, and even after that, he stayed away from his family to start college. Thibodeaux mentioned he couldn’t have dinner together with his mother for 5 years. Likewise, he never sat at the table with his family because they never had a place for everybody to get together for Christmas and other holidays.

As his grandma got sick, he immediately planned to get Shwanta a house so everybody could stay together as soon as possible. Loice was emotional and seemed very proud of her son.

The mother-son duo loves giving back to the community

The talented athlete is often seen in charity events and helping people along with Shwanta. The footballer learned from her, “The greatest way to leave your legacy is to do it through people.” On the verge of doing so, he teamed up with Campbell’s Chunky to host a food donation event at Community Foodbank as part of the Chunky Sacks Hunger relief.

The campaign held in October 2023, was designed to fight food inequality. Kayvon brought Loice alongside him to help with the donation and the charity.
