If you have been following Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs long enough, you’re surely aware that it’s not only his music which stands out about him. Besides having his fair share of controversies and legal issues, Diddy is also known for his eccentricity, eyebrow-raising personal life, and for having a big family.
Diddy’s oldest daughter Chance Combs inherited her father’s knack for fame, increasingly taking the spotlight from an early age thanks to her glamorous lifestyle and personality.
While Chance is still a celebrity in the making, it’s already evident how promising a career she has ahead. Keep reading to know more about Chance, what she’s achieved so far, her parents and relationship with her siblings, and her plans for the future.
Chance Combs was born on 20 July 2006 in the USA. She’s the only daughter born from the relationship between famous rapper and music producer Sean ‘Diddy’ Comb and Sarah Chapman, a businesswoman, the only child on her mother’s side, and one of seven children that Diddy has fathered since the early 1990s.
Given that Chance’s parents didn’t have a formal relationship by the time she was born, there were many questions regarding Diddy’s paternity. A DNA test In October 2007 confirmed that she was Diddy’s daughter, leading him to affirm after knowing the truth, that he was going to take care of Chance ‘for the rest of her life’, as reported by the New York Daily News.
Before Chance’s birth, Diddy and Sarah had maintained a long-time friendship for around 13 years, but it never became a formal romantic (or ‘legal’) relationship. These days they’re co-parenting seemingly well, often letting their social media followers see tidbits of the precious moments they share with their daughter.
Her Career So Far
Despite her young age, Chance Combs has been building a career in the entertainment industry. In 2021, she made her catwalk debut at the Alta Moda show by Dolce & Gabbana, was on the cover of Vanity Fair September issues of that year, and has been featured in V Magazine. Chance has also modeled for Glam-Aholic and other fashion brands.
Nonetheless, Chance’s big plans for the future aren’t on the catwalk but on the filming set, as she’s been involved in theater and taking acting classes since she was five years old.
As Chance revealed to V Magazine, acting has helped her ‘evolve’ and ‘step out of her comfort zone’. She has plans to pursue college-level courses in acting, and also give a try to producing and directing, and start some as yet unidentified business ventures. Her biggest inspiration when it comes to acting is the multi-awarded Zendaya.
The Combs family are big supporters of Chance’s dreams, especially her father. When walking the red carpet at the 2022 Oscars, Diddy proudly claimed that Chance is a ‘future best actress’, and made it clear that he will be supporting her every step of the way.
For now, it’s unclear what college Chance will be attending, or whether she’s already working on her debut role, but there are few doubts that she has a promising career.
Family, Influences & Social Media
As the daughter of a music and a fashion mogul, Chance Combs has always been acquainted with the entertainment industry. As she told V Magazine in 2023, she and her sisters have no plans of having a career in music, yet have been deeply influenced by Diddy’s work ethic, and find inspiration in the way he was able to build a stable and successful career based on his love for creative things.
It also helped that they’ve got to know many big names in the music industry, that Chance and her sisters feel compelled to give their best at pursuing their dreams. The influence goes beyond career-related endeavors though, as Chance and her sisters have been involved in charity work, affirming that their parents taught them ‘the importance of helping others’, as Chance told People.
When it comes to social media, Chance has done a great job at building a significant following on several social media platforms – Her TikTok has gained over 15,000 followers and over 135,000 likes, while her Instagram account has over 260,000 followers so far.
