Brandon Wilson Family

Brandon grew up in a loving family and with the immense support of his parents, he discovered his passion for basketball from a very young age. So, ever since he can remember he was always very determined to make his parents proud and make a name for himself in the sport. And he has done just that. Lately, on his birthday Brandon’s mother, Beverly Tanner gushed about how everyone in the family is “extremely proud” of her “big baby”. She wished him luck to keep following his dreams and also thanked him for teaching her how to love unconditionally. Yet, the proud mama also teasingly whined that her “handsome Sonshine…sheesh kid” is making her old.

Brandon’s mother, in one sentence, is a former news reporter/anchor turned writer/momager/acting coach. At present, she brings her past experience from WSPA 7News, CBS 42, WTVA 9 News, and WXVT at CBS DFW while working as a writer/producer. All along, she also mentioned being the “momager” to her son BJ Tanner.

The matriarch appears so young that she resembles more as Brandon’s big sister and less his mother. A native of Hope, Arkansas, she studied MA in Writing for Script & Screenwriting at Full Sail University from 2014 until 2015. Before this, she got her bachelor’s degree in Communications/Broadcast Journalism from Arkansas State University.

As of late 2022, she could be found on Instagram @beverly_tanner and she continued being married to Brian Tanner, her husband since 11 September 2003.

Brian, until this time, had been working as a licensed insurance sales agent at American Income Life Insurance Company and as a national director of operations at Premier Prep. A Blytheville, Arkansas born and bred, he is likely not the biological but a stepdad of Brandon.

As for siblings, Brandon has two brothers, BJ Tanner and Blake Tanner. Among these two, BJ is an actor in making. He is already quite famous as a child and teen actor. BJ has recurring guest arcs on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and Fox’s The Orville. He is younger than Brandon as he turned 18 years old on 2 May 2022.
