Nikki Haley's family: who is she?

Nikki Haley was the first female governor of South Carolina to hold the position from 2011 to 2017. After this, then-president Trump appointed her as United States Ambassador to the United Nations, a position she held until 2018. In 2019, she founded the policy group Stand for America, and later that year she became a member of Boeing's board of directors.

Nikki Haley's mother, Raj Kaur Randhawa, graduated from the University of Delhi in 1972, and both of her parents were immigrants from India. Ajit Singh Randhawa, her father, was a professor at Voorhees College. She later founded Exotica International, which closed its doors in 2008.

Nikki Haley has one sister and two brothers. Simran, her sister, is a life coach and the founder of the Believe Center. Her two brothers are Mitti, a former United States Army Chemical Corps member, and Charan, a web designer.

Despite previous allegations that Nikki Haley had changed her name from Nimrata to Nikki in an attempt to "whitewash" her public image, she has always gone by her middle name Nikki.

Nikki and Michael Haley met in 1989 while they were both undergraduates at Clemson University. Michael Haley served in the South Carolina Army National Guard in 2012, and Michael became the first Gentleman of South Carolina when Nikki became Governor. The couple have two children, Rena, 25 and Nalin, 21.
