He was born as Andrew B. Bachelor on June 26, 1988, in a town of Toronto in Ontario, Canada.
His parents are of Jamaican descent and are both accountants. Their names are Ingrid Mourice Bachelor and Byron Bachelor and were always very strict parents.
Andrew has only one sister who is younger than him and is called Christina. He was just a little, two-year-old kid when his parents decided to move to the United States, work-related. They relocated to West Palm Beach in Florida, where his parents found jobs.
