Who Are Taye Barber Parents?

Taye Barber's parents are no longer together, as evidenced by his mother's Instagram.

The young player's mother Jodi Barber-Harris is a strong presence in his life. She has always supported his decision to pursue a career in football and leaves no opportunity to shower Taye with her motherly love.

On the other hand, the identity and whereabouts of Taye's father are not currently available. The wide receiver is not very open when it comes to his family life and hasn't yet revealed a single piece of info about his biological father.

It appears that Taye's parents separated when he was still a young kid. Meanwhile, his mother Jodi has remarried and is currently settled with a husband named Eric Harris.

As per an Instagram post shared by Jodi, she has been dating Taye's stepfather for over 18 years now. When Barber's mother first started her relationship with his stepfather, Taye was only about five years old. So, it may not come as a surprise if the young athlete has little to no memories of his biological father.

Further exploring his social media, Barber's biological father doesn't seem to be a regular figure in his adult life either.
