Ibrahim Chappelle was born in the year 2003 to Dave and Elaine Chappelle. He is the second child of the Chappelle couple.

Ibrahim is an Arabic name. It is a derivation of Abraham. The name means “Father of faith.” Interestingly Dave converted to Islam in 1988.

He was born in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Ibrahim’s family has lived in Ohio for generations and has been active in social work. Their social activities contribute to a broad curiosity about the family.

Ibrahim was born two years after Dave’s first kid. He is 19 years old.

Ibrahim’s parents met in Brooklyn, New York. His father, Dave, met his mother, Elaine, while he was still a struggling artist.

They exchanged their vows in 2001 and are in love to date. Elaine’s mother is an excellent example of sacrifice and love for him. She is the one who keeps their home.

Ibrahim lives with his siblings and parents in a farmhouse in Yellow Springs. His siblings are Sulayman Chappelle and Sanaa Chappelle (also called Sonal).

The family often visits their house in Xenia.

His excellent physique shows that Ibrahim exercises pretty well. But, the choice of his clothing is quite open and relaxed. Ibrahim’s dresses are more comfort-based than fashion-based for a famous artist’s son.

V neck t-shirts paired with tennis or running shorts are the first choice in his attire. The athletic look and casual dress-up make Ibrahim look natural in appearance.

Ibrahim usually prefers a matching pair of sneakers or running shoes with shorts. He sure looks like a typical high schooler in his teens.


Elaine Chappelle (mother)

Elaine Chappelle is a beautiful woman of Asian descent. Her family moved and settled in the United States in search of a better life. 

Ibrahim’s mother grew up in Brooklyn and completed high school, aspiring to become a chef in the future.

Elaine believes in not giving importance to others’ opinions in his life. She expresses her thoughts on Instagram, which shows her level of confidence.

Elaine has not only supported her husband at the peak of his career but also acted as his strength. The marriage was between two religions, supporting which was a difficult task. Nevertheless, she did her best, even left her dream, to fulfill her family responsibilities.
