Meet Helen Edebiri, Ayo Edebiri Mother

Helen Edebiri is Ayo Edebiri’s mother. In 2019, she shared a snapshot of their chat about Keannu Reeves that hinted at her name. “My mom is hot and keeps me up to date on the trades! Above all? She’s hot! John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum comes out this Saturday ❤️.” Ayo’s caption read.

Despite being born and raised in Boston, Ayo’s parents are immigrants. Her father and her mother’s husband Dele Edebiri traveled from Nigeria, while her mother immigrated to the United States from Barbados. Ayo grew up going to Pentecostal church twice a week with her family. Her father isn’t religious, but her mother is.

Ayo baited The New Yorker, saying, “I was like, ‘You’re going to Hell, bro.'” Despite this, Ayo’s religious upbringing gave rise to dreams about the Rapture and the fear that her mom was sent to Heaven and Ayo and her dad were left behind when she wasn’t in bed.

Ayo got along well with her parents, who have always been supportive, despite their differences in religion. “My parents are very practical people and they told me, ‘If this comedy thing is an actual career and a job that you want, then you have to treat it like that,’” she told Forbes.

They had initially encouraged her to pursue a teaching degree, but they were still in favor of her changing her major as long as she took it seriously.

To offer their support, Ayo’s parents went with her to the 75th Emmy Awards. Ayo did, however, acknowledge that she wasn’t seated among them in her award speech.

“This is a show about found family and real family, and my parents are here tonight,” Ayo said in her speech. “I’m making them sit kind of far away from me because I’m a bad kid. But I love you so much. Thank you so much for loving me and letting me feel beautiful and Black and proud of all of that. I just love you so much.”
