Taelyn Dobson is famous as the stepsister of the late singer Aaron Carter, and singer Nick Carter. Her brother Nick is a well-renowned singer and a member of the vocal group Backstreet Boys. Despite being from a celebrity family, Taelyn Dobson doesn’t indulge in being in the limelight often.

Recently, after her older stepbrother, Aaron Carter’s death, people have shown interest in knowing about Dobson’s life. However, Taelyn lives entirely away from media and she doesn’t make herself public on socials as well. Due to this, details regarding Taelyn Dobson’s parents, early life, and boyfriend are not well known.

So, we have brought a detailed article about Dobson today. Keep reading to know all the exclusive details about her.

Early Life and Parents – Her Mother Married Robert Gene Carter

Taelyn Dobson was born to her mother Ginger Carter (Elrod) in Mayville, New York. But unfortunately, details about her biological father and birthday are not known by far. She is an American by nationality and belongs to White ethnic background.

Dobson’s mother, Ginger Elrod married Robert Gene Carter on April 1, 2004, in Key West, Florida. After their marriage, Ginger adopted her husband’s last name, Carter. The pair gave birth to a son, Kaden Brent Carter together.

Meanwhile, there is a Facebook account that we can say belonged to Robert Carter after going through his friend list. Robert, who died in 2017 ( more about this below) had set his relationship status to “separated” instead of married. So, it is possible that Taelyn’s mother and her stepfather were separated before the latter’s death. However, Ginger still goes by Robert’s last name.

Stepfather Died in 2017

Dobson’s stepfather, Robert Gene Carter passed away at age 65 on May 16, 2017, in Florida. He reportedly died of a heart attack.

He further said in a separate tweet,

“While we learn more about the cause of death and begin the grieving process, we ask that our privacy be respected at this difficult time.”

Besides, Taelyn’s other stepbrother, Aaron also expressed his feelings in an Instagram post where he shared a photo of him with his dad. “My heart is broken, we are so hurt we lost you poppa way too soon,” Aaron wrote alongside the post.

“You were never human to me, you were always my real life super hero,” Aaron further wrote.

Her Mother Elrod Was Beaten up by Bob Carter’s Ex-wife

Back in 2004, Taelyn Dobson’s mother, Ginger Elrod was beaten by Bob Carter’s second wife, Jane Carter. As reported, Jane broke into Bob’s house in the Florida Keys breaking the window with a rock. After that, she went to the bedroom where Bob and Elrod were sleeping. Jane then dragged Elrod out of bed by her hair and hit her with a remote control.

After the incident, Jane was arrested and charged with battery, however, Bob reportedly said that Elrod would not press charges against Jane but that “restraining orders are in place.”

At the time Leslie was visiting her father and stepmother Ginger in Mayville, NY. There she reportedly fell down in a bathroom and went unconscious.
