The star was born and raised in Tarzana, a suburb of Los Angeles, and her parents come from the South. Blake explained that a close family mentality trained her for what’s to come.

"I feel like I've always sorta… I'm the youngest of five, so I never raised any siblings below me,” she explained. “But I'm always the person who's taking everyone else's kid and putting them on my hip, so I've kinda always been a mama. So we'll see."
