Who is Helen Lasichanh?
Helen Lasichanh went through her early life in Miami. She was born on the 22nd of July 1980 in Florida. She went to Miami Coral Stop Tall School where she graduated in 1998. She went to St Thomas College in Miami Gardens where she showcased her ability in volleyball. She was a dynamic part of the school group, and in 2001 she was named “The Florida Sun Conference Player of the Year.” Lasichanh is super private about her individual life, and in spite of the fact that almost nothing is known about her past, family, or history overall, we do know that she is of blended ethnicity since her ancesters are Ethiopian and Laotian.
When did she meet Pharrell?
When Williams and Lasichanh met, she had a boyfriend and wouldn’t see twice the good looking performer. They were just friends for two and a half long years until she got to be single once more, and indeed after that, Williams had to work difficult. In an interview with Oprah, she revealed she played hard to get, not indeed reacting to half of the texts he always sent her. Looks like both of their strategies worked, as they equally fell in love and now have a beautiful relationship.
How long have they been together?
The couple got engaged in 2012, after dating for more than five years, they said to Rolling Stone, and being friends for more than two years before that. They also talked to Oprah in 2014, Williams confessed it was love at first time when he first saw her, but the feeling wasn't shared at, to begin with. "She fair stood out. I was like, 'Who and what is that?'" he told Oprah. "I knew at a few point something was aiming to happen. I was fair so enamored by the minute I was having with her. I fair needed to peruse that book. I didn't care what was in it." Sweet words from this amazing man, but at the time Lasichanh was in a relationship. "She didn't reply half my content messages. She had a boyfriend and she wasn't interested," he said.
They were just friends for more than two years before they started seeing each other. In this interview with Oprah, he also confessed they bonded over music, more so for their love and appreciation of A Tribe Called Quest. Pharell also said that in all his past relationships, this was a deal-breaker for him: all of his girlfriends also had to love this group.
They have been dating for 8 years, and were dating for 5 years before that, so that makes it 13 years together now.
Do they have children?
Lasichanh and Williams’ first child is their son Rocket after "Rocket" the ascending man-made machine. In the same interview with Oprah we talked about, he said this about his son's name:
“In the same way that the Indians name their children behind a force or an animal or an element, we named him after a man-made machine that was meant to go up, meant to ascent. And metaphorically it was because of Steve Wonder’s ‘Rocket Love,’ Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’ …all of my favorite musicians.”
Imagine having such cool parents! Their son is already becoming one of the coolest kids in Hollywood, having the best fashion inspiration as parents this was more than obvious. We can see all of this in Pharell's rare photos of the family on Instagram and on Helen's social media, too. Pharell even wrote a song that is called “Rocket’s Theme” in Despicable Me's soundtrack and it’s all about how happy Rocket makes his parents. He is surely a daddy's boy.
In September 2016 they announced that they were expecting triplets, and the couple was spotted out and about over the holidays, Helen showing her adorable baby bump in the pap's shots.
Then, in late January 2017, Helen finally welcomed triplets. The couple welcomed triplets in 2017. The couple who live a very private life has shared very little of these three babies even up until now. The closest pictures they have shared about the triplets is a photo of three pairs of yellow Adidas with the words “Human Race” on each pair. Pharrell shared with his fans what it feels like to be a father of four and is quoted to have said: “I have a tribe; it is an assembly line…they harmonize when they cry. It’s Waah! Waah! Waah! All at the same time. Like one cries, the next one cries, and the next one cries. They are hungry; they are hungry; they are hungry.”
It is fair to say that their hands are pretty much always full, and with Lasichanh being a full-time mother, there is never a dull moment for her. But what we can really see from Pharell's way of speaking about her, being it on interviews, social media posts, is that he truly loves her and the big family they have become. He said to People magazine: “I love her for everything she is, good, bad and indifferent…we share a space in love that is, I don’t possess her. You know when I was young, I used to say things like, ‘Oh, she is mine.’ But she is not mine, but she sure makes me feel like it.” With such kind of mature love displayed openly, we can only hope that is one of those happily ever after kind of love stories and wish them luck as they raise their “Tribe.”
What does Helen Lasichanh do for a living?
Shortly after graduating college, Lasichanh ventured into the world of fashion and modeling and worked with popular agencies and magazines trying to curve a niche for herself in the industry. Her husband also shares her unique fashion, and the couple is said to be one of the most fashion-forward couples in Hollywood. Whenever they step out together for red carpet events, the couple is always adorned in unique outfits leaving most people gaping with envy. Lasichanh, who also has a body to die for looks incredibly beautiful in whatever outfit she chooses. She does not go with the norm, and when expected to wear an evening gown in a red-carpet event, she shows up in a tux. She is also quite modest and avoids wearing overtly sexy outfits. When asked by The Post how she comes up with the combination of her outfits, she modestly responded by saying, “I don’t choose, it’s just who I am.” Humble right!
Her style is even so admired that she regularly makes Huffington Post and other magazine's best-dressed lists and has garnered some serious love from them, along with other news outlets. In reality, to say that Helen is stylish is an understatement. She is a fashionista who has demonstrated her uniqueness in the fashion world and has never been afraid to share with the world her unique fashion statements.
Have you ever seen what she and Pharell decided to wear for their wedding? On the day most people decide to be as traditional as possible, this edgy couple decided to be extremely different and fashion-forward. Helen accentuated her beautiful body in a voluminous blue tartan dress and completed the look by accessorizing with long gold necklaces and pearl rosemary beads. The dress, which had some fabric gathering at the hip exposed her tiny waist, making her look like a princess. Pharrell, on the other hand, wore a red and green tartan tuxedo. The guests also adopted the tartan theme.
The couple sailed away in a boat named “never say never” to the Kampong Tropical Botanical Gardens where they exchanged their vows surrounded by close friends and family. Their wedding was turned into a mini-concert by Usher and Busta Rhymes, who are some of the artists that Pharrell has worked with. Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke were also said to have performed at the wedding. One of the wedding revelers is quoted to have said:
“Usher and Busta did a mini-concert at the wedding, it was so fun. The little concert was amazing. It was the most fun wedding I have ever been to.”
Other celebrities who attended the wedding include Jay Z, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Justin Timberlake, and Gwen Stefani.
What is their family up to now?
For the past two years in a row, Lasichanh and Williams have been spotted serving food to the less fortunate at the Los Angeles Mission Christmas Celebration. They seem to be a very happy family, whilst still being very private and living in intimacy. Ppharell keeps making the best music, she keeps being the beautiful stylish woman she is, and the kids must be growing with the best example possible.
