Aaliyah Mendes is a Canadian social media personality who was born on September 15, 2003, in Toronto. Although she is very famously known for being Shawn Mendes’ sister, she also has a shine of her own making. Her social media success darts back to the ephemeral but widely popular short-video app Vine, where she had an account named “Princess Aaliyah.” As of right now, she uses Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter, where she shares snippets and bits of her everyday life with her followers. We hope she has a wonderful birthday, so she can share some more happy moments with us.
Aaliyah Maria Mendes, more commonly known as just Aaliyah Mendes, was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She was born on September 15, 2003, to parents Karen Rayment Mendes, a real estate agent, and Manuel Mendes, a businessman and happens to be the beloved younger sister of famous pop-star Shawn Mendes. They often appear together in images and videos posted by Aaliyah, although she also shares other aspects of her life on social media.
The young star first gained popularity on social media with her Vine account under the name “Princess Aaliyah.” After Vine was officially shut down in 2016, she moved on to Musical.ly, later on, TikTok, another streaming platform with a similar premise as Vine: short, entertaining videos. She has also built a huge community on Instagram, with over 900,000. There, she posts pictures and videos about her day-to-day life, her boyfriend, dogs, brother, and family life.
Mendes is currently dating Jordan Savage, a boy she met at her local high school. They have been publicly dating since June 2019, and although not much information is known about him other than he is two years older than her, they both appear deeply in love, whenever she posts about them being together — which happens quite often. She graduated from St. Mary Catholic Secondary School in June 2021. Unfortunately for her, there was no big spectacle, as her generation did not get a proper prom, graduation, or send-off due to the restrictions in place at the time.
