Carmen Larbalestier is British, and she was born in November 1955 in England. She and her ex-husband, Anthony Hamilton, a Black British citizen, welcomed Lewis in 1985. Although he is of mixed-races, Lewis identifies himself as black. Now, let’s know about the relationship between Carmen and her ex-husband, Anthony.
Carmen and her first husband, Anthony, separated in 1987 when their son Lewis was two years old. Lewis lived with his mom and his half-sisters until he was twelve.
The exact reason behind Hamilton’s parents’ divorce was a misunderstanding.
His mother once revealed, “Lewis was the best thing to come out of my marriage. Tony wanted to be somebody, and he has achieved that. I wanted a quiet life and that put a barrier between us. I couldn’t see myself in that busy, hectic lifestyle.”
Whenever Lewis has a big moment, his mother has always been there supporting him. While she hasn’t been a regular at Lewis’ races, the mother-son duo enjoys an excellent relationship.
In 2008, Larbalestier was seen embracing her son at the Chinese Grand Prix. Additionally, Lewis’ stepmom, Linda, was also present. In 2015, Hamilton held a surprise 60th birthday party for Carmen in London where singer Jessie J sang at the bash.
