Born in Los Angeles, California, Lauren Nicole London is an actress.
Her mother was African-American and her father was Jewish. She attended Palisades High School, but was ultimately homeschooled to give her time to audition for acting roles. Lauren described herself as an only child who spent a lot of time alone. Movies kept me company from a very young age, and starting from about seven years old, I wrote little plays and acted out all the parts by myself in my bedroom (kathleencross.com).
Lauren London told Skin Deep how she struggled with her identity growing up: Whatever your ethnicityin this life you are going to be on a journey to discover who you are and how you feel about yourself. I do remember being teased by my cousins on my moms side for not being black enough, and then Id spend the summer with my dad and be sent to all white summer camps where I was that black girl. I struggledthen I figured it out for myselfI dont care what people think about my identity. If someone thinks Im not black enough thats their issue. Im okay with who I amIm a black woman like my mother, and I love who my father is, and I love both sides of me.

She and rapper Lil Wayne have a son together, Kameron Cater. Laura London said, I dont understand why thats so fascinating to people. Ive known [Lil Wayne] since I was 15 years old but no one knows that. No one knows that because I wasnt in the public eye then so it wasnt all that interesting to take pictures of me.
Lauren London said of having a child, Motherhood has changed me a lot. Ive definitely calmed down. I had a temper in the past and I dont as much anymore. My son definitely puts stuff in perspective. The things I thought were really important, arent. I dont look at the surface as much anymore. A lot of things I was doing before were really selfish and now its not about me. Its about him.

Lauren London later said, I feel like there is always a rumor that Im dating someone that I never met before. People have their judgments and ideas of who I am and they know nothing.
