Nyle DiMarco was born into a large multigenerational Deaf family.. He has over twenty-five Deaf members in his family. This means his two brothers, parents, grandparents, and great grandparents are all Deaf. He is the fourth generation. He is also a fraternal twin and believe it or not, his twin is a Deaf DJ. 

He believes that he is fortunate because of the access he had growing up within his Deaf family that knew how to raise a deaf child and to how instill identity and pride in order to succeed in life. His Deaf family is the main reason why he has Nyle DiMarco Foundation and he strives to better 70 million deaf lives worldwide because more than 75% of parents do not sign to communicate with their deaf child.
