Power Book 2: Ghost quickly became one of the most-watched TV programs in early 2022, and its character, Diana Tejada, portrayed by Latoya Tonodeo, was adored by many. Naturally, with popularity came questions about the star’s private life; especially her parents, net worth, and husband.
Thus, here we are with this Latoya Tonodeo Bio, answering all your queries.
Who Are Latoya Tonodeo Parents?
Latoya Tonodeo might have been private about her family, but that wasn’t stopping us from digging around. So, looking into her socials, we found out that the actress’s parents were still married as of 2010, and she was “exceedingly thankful” for that.
Also, the Power Book star was often vocal about her parent’s personalities. She once mentioned that her father was a cool, laid-back, and calm person, while her mom was the sillier one.
Recalling an incident with her parents, Latoya wrote, “My dad is a foo.” It was one early morning when she asked her mother to wake up and come out with her. “Wake up! Toy wanna hang out,” her dad immediately interrupted. And as Latoya asked him to stop trying to game her, he replied, “Naw take her so I don’t have to.”
Seems like Latoya’s father has a brilliant sense of humor. Another incident where he proved his comicality would be when the actress texted him “I love u. Ur the bomb.” To which, he texted back, “I love u more. Ur a bigger bomb.”
Enough talk about Latoya’s father, so what about her mother? Well, all we know about her is that she makes bomb enchiladas and celebrates her birthday in early February.
Overall, Latoya equally loved her parents. She often wished them on mother/father’s dad over her Twitter. “Happy Fathers day to all the Dads and Mothers who play both roles. God Bless,” Latoya wrote back in June 2010.
She even commented on her fiance Arlen Escarpeta’s 2020 mother’s day IG post, “Happy Mother’s Day Ma! (kiss emoji) I love and appreciate you.”
Trivia: Latoya’s grandmother/ her “guardian angel” passed away on June 10, 2018. She was very close to Latoya and had “always been a blessing” to her.
Latoya Tonodeo Husband Or Boyfriend?
