“Congratulations are in order” seems to be a common phrase that Nick Cannon hears lately. It was recently announced that his 11th child is on the way with model Alyssa Scott, with whom he once fathered a now-deceased son. But while the world celebrates or criticizes, depending on the spectrum you visit, he isn’t the only celebrity with multiple children. So let’s take a look at a few others who are responsible for an army of children.
At 23 years old, rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again may be known for releasing multiple chart-topping albums and singles, even without receiving much radio play. However, the young rapper is also the father of ten children with eight different mothers. According to PEOPLE, the “Bandit” rapper welcomed his most recent and second daughter in September with his fiance.
Rapper Future is also known to have many children with multiple women. There are seven children that the Atlanta rapper claims. However, an eighth child was reportedly determined to be Future’s with a woman named Eliza Seraphin. The “Life Is Good” rapper also has a son with singer Ciara, with whom he was once engaged, named Future Zahir Wilburn.
Deceased rapper DMX was the father to a whopping 17 children. Four of the Yonkers rapper’s offspring were born from his marriage to ex-wife Tashera Simmons. Some of his other children stemmed from affairs during his marriage, while their siblings were born from various relationships.
Wu-Tang Clan rapper ODB is another on the list. Some reports state that he has 7 children with five different women, while others say the rapper has as many as 13 children. However, his widow has argued that ODB only had three proven children, and they are hers. Another rapper to add is Master P, a father of nine, including Romeo Miller.
Boxers Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield have seven and eleven children, respectively. Prominent legendary reggae artist Bob Marley is credited for having 11 children, although some note he’s had more. Finally, iconic actor and comedian Eddie Murphy is the father of ten children, with his latest born in 2018.
