Later, Karmen arrived in this world but her arrival couldn’t bind her parents together. As a child, she mostly grew up together with her matriarch in Montana, and much later, her dad adopted her. Regarding this, her half-sister Krysten once revealed the narration made by her mom about Karmen in her blog and wrote,

Her (Karmen) mom and your dad met in Montana, and they were both very young. Your dad was traveling a lot at the time and starting his career, so Karmen’s mom decided that it would be best if her significant other adopt Karmen at the time, and be her father figure. You’re dad was so young and he agreed it would be the best thing for her.”

As for ethnicity, Karmen has an ancestry of German and Irish from her father’s side and is probably Caucasian from her mom’s.

Karmen Met Her Sister Krysten At The Age of 17 And Maria At 39

Surprisingly, all three Knievel sisters were unaware of their existence as a child. Their blood relations were identified many years later.

Karmen got to know her younger sister Krysten when she was 17. In this respect, Krysten opened up about how her parents approached revealing the truth about Karmen. In a blog, she wrote,

Karmen, she’s 17 and she is your sister. I’m sorry I never told you sooner, but she got ahold of Grandma Lin (my dad’s mother) and asked for my number.”

After that, the two newly identified siblings went on phone calls for months and finally met in person at Vegas airport. At the time, they found it really weird how to respond. In this respect, Krysten added,

I hugged my dad and then looked at Karmen. We both stood there for a moment unsure of how to act, then we hugged each other.

Further, Karmen’s blood relation with her other sister Maria was discovered in the year 2019 when she was already 39.  In an interview with The Bay Ragni Show, Maria said that she went through a patriarchal test in the year 2019 which proved that she is the biological daughter of a stuntman Robbie, and then met her two sisters.
