Hayden was born on October 11, 2000 in Lakewood, Colorado. He grew up in Littleton, Colorado before eventually relocating with his family to Los Angeles, California at the age of ten to pursue an acting career. He first began to develop an interest in acting by imitating his favorite film and television characters and reciting their lines along with them. He has one younger brother.
Alongside his Fosters co-star Gavin MacIntosh, Byerly has been an outspoken advocate against school bullying, encouraging youngsters to embrace their differences and lending his support to the "Be Good to Each Other" campaign.
