A multi-talented star and an elite pro skateboarder, Rob Dyrdek’s success story began at a remarkably young age. Yet another proof that schooling doesn’t always correlate with success, Rob has established himself not just as a phenomenal sportsman but also as a successful entrepreneur. Besides perfecting his skill as a natural talent on the board, Rob who is always searching for the next frontier in skateboarding has an entrepreneurial spirit that makes him always excited about new ventures.
The internet is a hotbed for the most insane and hilarious videos and the makers of the television show Ridiculousness found a way to collate the best of these videos and give viewers a front seat to the shenanigans that people get up to. At the helm of this is Rob Dyrdek, the host of the show. The work he does on television is not limited to this and he is known for engaging in other interesting ventures. The detail of his career exploits is a story for another day, let’s discuss his family.
A Look at The Family Rob Dyrdek Hails from
An Ohio native, Rob Dyrdek was born on June 28, 1974. He was born and raised in Kettering. He is the son of Patty and Gene Dyrdek and has a sister named Denise Dyrdek.
Rob has a good memory of his childhood and how his family loves and supports each other. This helped him a great deal to hold on to his childhood dreams regarding what he wanted to do as an adult. The skateboard aficionado loves to maintain a close relationship with his family and also spends a lot of time with them.
Rob has featured some of his family members (including his cousins and sister) in his reality shows. He has now gone ahead to start his own family with a woman who is very supportive of his endeavors.
Starting His Family With Bryiana Noelle Flores
In 2013, Rob Dyrdek began a relationship with Bryiana Noelle Flores. When they started to date, Flores was a model whose career was just taking off. The details of how the two met are not clear, but it is known that for their first date, Dyrdek pulled all the stops. The date was a helicopter ride to Bakersfield, where they spent the day with puppies.
The couple dated for two years and in 2015, he asked her to marry him. In the same fashion as their first date, he grandly did this. The proposal happened in Disneyland during an Aladdin show, where Dyrdek appeared on an elephant and asked Bryiana to marry him. By September of that year, they got married. The couple has two kids now and with the arrival of his first child, Dyrdek decided to dial back on the intensity he applied to his career.
Prior to becoming a father, Rob Dyrdek leaned into the celebrity image he had cultivated where the line between his personal and professional line was close to nonexistent. The personality he built as a star started with skateboarding before he transitioned into reality TV.
But having a child changed him and he was not comfortable with the lack of privacy he had. This led to him shutting down his reality show, Rob and Big. He also stopped skateboarding as he could no longer dedicate time to it. With this, he lost his contract with DC shoes as they were only willing to work with people who skateboarded professionally.
This has not been a setback for Rob Dyrdek, he has his show Ridiculousness and many other ventures that he is running.
Who Is Bryiana Noelle Flores?
Bryiana Noelle Flores is a Filipino American born in Salina, California on the 21st of July 1991. She has always worked in the beauty industry; first as a playboy housemate, followed by a stint in modeling, then as the winner of a beauty pageant. Now she runs a beauty outfit called Iconic Beauties and still models.
This is a success story for a woman who was expected to die when she was a child. At age 10, Bryiana Flores found that she had Leukemia, the doctors projected that she would die in a few months after her diagnosis.
Resigned to her fate and wanting to make the most of the time left to live, Flores signed up for the Make a Wish Foundation and won a trip to Hawaii. It was during her trip that she decided to fight for her life, this she did by undergoing chemo and using her medication. Today, she lives a healthy and happy life where she tries to spread positivity as much as she can.
Rob Spares Nothing In Expressing The Love He Has for His Wife
The relationship between Rob Dyrdek and his wife is full of love, mutual respect, and adoration. Dyrdek is fond of gushing over his wife on social media, his love for her is evident in the way he speaks about her and the things he is willing to do for her.

They Are Raising a Beautiful Family Together
The couple welcomed their first child exactly a year after they got married. Kodah Dash Dyrdek was born on the 9th of September 2016. Not long after that, the family welcomed another child, a daughter. It was on the 29th of December 2017 that Naya Ryan was born.
