Beckham Jr. was born in 1992 to parents Heather Van Norman and Odell Beckham Sr., who would later split. Van Norman went on to tie the knot with Derreck Mills and welcomed daughter Jasmyne in 2002. Beckham Sr., for his part, welcomed three children of his own: Kordell, Sonny and Summer, born in 2002, 2014 and 2018, respectively.

While Beckham Jr. went onto become an NFL star receiver who is currently on the Miami Dolphins, brother Kordell joined Love Island USA season 6 in June 2024.

Although Beckham Jr. has yet to comment on Kordell’s reality TV fame, Kordell’s Love Island costar Connor Newsum said that Kordell doesn’t love the “fangirling type of tension” that comes with talking about his older brother.
