Where is Kylian Mbappe’s mother from?
Fayza Lamari was born in the Republic of France in 1974. Although she bears a French passport and is a French national, her roots can be traced back to Africa.
Her mother belonged to a family that had its roots in the Kabyle tribe of the North African country of Algeria. Fayza’s family moved to France when she was still quite young. As such, she spent most of her life in Bondy, a suburb located on the outskirts of the French national capital of Paris.

Time magazine has described her relationship with Kylian to be that of a gatekeeper. As a parent, she was a disciplinarian. Currently, Fayza is acting as her son’s biggest supporter as she is often seen frequenting the stadiums where her son is playing. She also advises her son in various matters and has, therefore, been dubbed as his agent.
