There are many reasons to jump on your famous sibling’s parade and shine, but that is not the type of person Chimene Diaz is. Although she is the older sibling of Hollywood star Cameron Diaz, she is also a successful realtor and ex-model who has lived a simple and private life, far from the wild and luxurious lifestyle often associated with celebrities.
Chimene Diaz was born to middle-class parents on June 5, 1970. She is older than her famous sister, Cameron Diaz, known for her role in The Mask and Charlie’s Angel. She works as a real estate agent and at a skin-care company. She lives with her second husband, Robby Armstrong, and her four children.
While Chimene’s sister trod down the path of fame and glamour, she took the adventurous path of finding home solutions for her clients. Continue to read to get full details about her

Chimene Michelle Diaz was born on June 5, 1970, in San Diego, California, to Emiliano Lius Diaz and his wife, Billie Early Joann. Emiliano was a foreman attached to a California-based company, Unocal, engaged in oil and gas dealings. His wife Billie is a businesswoman chiefly involved in importing and exporting. They got married on March 1, 1969, and a year later, they had Chimene.
Her father is from a Spanish background; his ancestors moved from Spain to Cuba. In comparison, her mother has mixed backgrounds; English, German, and even Cherokee-Indian. Chimene’s name, which is of Polish origin and means Harkening, suggests that her family has Polish roots.
A delicate balance between tragedy and joy characterized Chimene’s upbringing. On the one hand, she had to grapple with the haunting memories of her father’s death on April 15, 2008, triggered by a severe case of Flu and Pneumonia. Additionally, her parents struggled to make ends meet, which meant they had to settle for substandard living conditions. However, despite these challenges, Chimene still managed to find happiness in her daily life. She grew up alongside her sister, who bore a striking resemblance to her, often prompting people to mistake them for twins – she also had a brother named Michael Diaz. Together, they navigated their early life in Long Beach, California, which they called home.
She was enrolled in a local school in California, where she attained her primary education before advancing to Long Beach Polytechnic High School.
Unlike her sister, Chimene threaded down a different path, away from the spotlight, the highlife, and the red carpets. She became a realtor at splash real estate. She later partnered with Rhonda Buchanan and started a real estate company named Buchanan and Diaz Group.

Chimene has made waves in her line of work. Her partnership with Ferguson Realty in the Seal Beach area and her work in Long Beach and Huntington Harbor is evidence of her expertise. She believes in the importance of building strong bonds with clients, and she achieves this by adhering to the call of duty and executing projects to perfection.
Aside from Real Estate, Chimene used to work as a managing director of the now-defunct Two Monkeys LL. She now works in a skincare company.
Marital Status and Children
Chimene is a mother of four kids; she had two children with her first husband, Chad Cain – their marriage did not last long, and two more from her marriage to Robby Armstrong.
With Chad, she had her first child, Chloe Billie Michelle Armstrong, her daughter who was born on March 29, 2008, a few days before her grandfather, Chimene’s father, passed. Also, she had a son named Emilio Armstrong with Chad.

In September 2005, she wedded Robby Armstrong – a singer and songwriter. The news of their marriage wasn’t known till five years later, in 2013, when the couple began uploading images of their union for their marriage anniversary. The couple lives in Huntington Beach, California, and share two daughters, Emmi Armstrong – a student at Bastyr University studying Health Psychology, and Channing Armstrong
Chimenes’s children with Chad were adopted by Robby hence the change in surnames.
