Skai's mother ended up finding love once again and got engaged to her boyfriend, Gene Salas in early 2016.
Kiya works as a part-time manager of her daughter Skai too. From accepting show/ad requests to replying to e-mails, Kiya plays a considerable role in helping Skai manage her schedule.
She has mentioned how she gets nervous about the security of her daughter and gets very protective when it comes to Skai.
Kiya says she wants her daughter to be safe and be able to protect herself when she is not with Kiya. A mother’s heart surely is delicate, and it is normal for Kiya to worry about her famous daughter who is always chased around by paparazzi and fans.
