His mother, Tonya Gillespie, “Momager” to her up and coming actor son, is believed to have played a very important role in Damon’s getting-bigger career. Enrolling him in Karate classes and other different competitions, early on, it was she who noticed Damon’s gift for the first time.
At the time we had no clue if Tony, a volunteer at Humane Educational Society, had kids other than Damon. Also, Damon’s social media activity did not give away anything about his siblings (if he had any).

The duo, who started dating around 2014, rarely post pictures of themselves as a couple on social media.
Damon was doing Spring Awakening at a local theater in Tennessee, and at the time, he was just so focused on the work that he had almost missed out on starting a relationship with his then lady-crush.
