Joakim Noah was born in New York City in 1985, and Yelena Noah was born one year later in 1986. Their mom and dad divorced after just three years of marriage. When Joakim and Yelena were little, they lived in France where their father is a celebrity.

In 1998, Cecilia Rodhe moved with her two kids to Brooklyn, New York, and Joakim and Yelena Noah mainly spent their teen years living and growing up in the New York City area. While Joakim went to the University of Florida and then the NBA with the Chicago Bulls, Yelena Noah was pursuing a modeling and acting career while living mainly in Brooklyn, New York.

Yelena Noah has modeled for such companies and designers as Next, Ford, L'Oreal, and Cartier. Yelena has also starred in commercials, including one in which she salsa danced with New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, who had no idea she was Joakim Noah's little sister.

Yelena Noah has also starred in a few short movies and TV shows, and she has gained notoriety sitting court side at some of big brother Joakim Noah's NBA games, especially when the Chicago Bulls play in Brooklyn.
