Is Jaeden Martell Gay or Bisexual?

There also have been speculations regarding Martell's sexual orientation. He was speculated to be gay after he was frequently seen in the company of It co-star Jack Dylan Grazer during press promotions and award ceremonies.

However, as there are no publicly known details regarding Martell's sexuality and dating history, so these claims can be categorized as just rumors for now. 

How old is Jaeden Martell?

As of writing, Martell, who stands 1.7m in height, is 20 years old. 

The Philadelphian native was born in 2003 as Jaeden Wesley Lieberher to his parents Wes Lieberher, an executive chef, and Angela Martell. His maternal grandmother Chisun Martell is a Korean. He celebrates his birthday on January 4. When he was four, his family moved to Los Angeles.

Martell has opted out of his Father's last name

During his first six years working in the entertainment business, Martell was always credited as Lieberher, but in 2019, the actor changed his name legally and is now known by his mother's last name.

Talking exclusively to GoldDerby.com, Martell revealed the reason for his legal name change. The actor said, 

That is my mom’s last name and I wanted to honor her because she is here with me every day that she’s on set with me and she makes me the person I am. I owe everything to her and she has raised me the last 17 years.

The reason for the change in his family name could be a result of his father's separation from his mother, Angela. However, it is difficult to accurately say when they decided to go their separate ways.

His biological father, Lieberher, is known to be married to another woman and has children with his second wife.
