Nikki Haley likely presidential candidate 2024

Nikki Haley potential 2024 presidential contender

Nikki Haley, who was raised Sikh, converted to Christianity when she tied the knot with Micheal Haley in 1996. Nikki Haley’s husband is an American businessman and commissioned officer in South Carolina. She welcomed her two children with Michael- daughter, Rena, 25, and son, Nalin, 23. Although Nkki’s children do not seem to have an interest in politics, they have been constantly supporting her throughout the 2024 presidential run which is less than a year away. 

Though Nikki was Sikh, she raised her children in the Christian faith. However, the mom of two often brings Rena and Nilan to India for they to get exposed to both traditions. In a November 2023 interview, Nalin said that their religion “plays a role 24/7 in his life,” adding that his mother was his “constant reminder.” 

Here is everything you need to know about Nikki’s family:

Nikki’s Daughter Rena Works As A Nurse

Nicki welcomed her first child Rena in 1998 in Lexington, South Carolina. Nikki had a normal childhood as she recalled in one of her YouTube videos. Although the 25-year-old is not interested in following in the footsteps of her mother, she still works in public service as a nurse. 

As per her LinkedIn account, she graduated in 2021 from Clemson University with a degree in nursing. Even while she is caught up with her work, Rena finds time to show up for her mother, especially during debates, when Michael could not make it to the event.

In one of the recent debates, Vivek Ramaswami, Nikki’s rival candidate, tried to defame her daughter saying Nikki should take care of her family before preaching to others. He was pointing at Rena’s YouTube clips. However, Nikki quickly slammed the conversation. 

Meanwhile, in her personal life, Rena took wedding vows on April 15, 2023, with her college mate Joshua Jackson. It is gushed that the two have bought a house together in London.

Nalin Is A Basketball Player And A Philanthropist

Nikki’s second child, Nalin, was born in 2001. He grew up in South Carolina where he played basketball for his school team. In 2023, Nalin kicked off his senior year of college at Villanova University. 

“Hard to believe it is his senior year,” Nikki wrote on X last year after she took Nalin to the school with Rena and Josh. Like his sister, Nalin is also not into politics, but he shows up at events and campaigns to show his support. During the campaign, Nalin has helped Nikki in the best way possible by shooting insults at her opposite candidates.

Besides these, Nalin is interested in social service as he actively participates in fundraising campaigns by raising awareness as well as by making possible small donations.
