For the second time in one week, the former football star admitted he had children out of wedlock. Walker has been often publicly critical of absent African American fathers.
Georgia GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker confirmed he has four children, only one of whom was previously known and mentioned by Walker.
- On Tuesday, Walker admitted having a 10-year-old son out of wedlock.
- Late Wednesday night, Walker admitted having another 13-year-old son and a 20-year-old daughter with two other women.
“I have four children. Three sons and a daughter. They’re not ‘undisclosed’—they’re my kids,” Walker said in his statement. “I support them all and love them all. I’ve never denied my children, I confirmed this when I was appointed to the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition, I just chose not to use them as props to win a political campaign. What parent would want their child involved in garbage, gutter politics like this?”Daily Beast
In a 2020 interview, Herschel stated that when a man has “a child with a woman, even if you have to leave that woman… you don’t leave the child.”
According to Arkansas court documents, Walker accrued $4,919 in missed child support payments for one of the women, ranging from October 2006 to June 2017.
Christian Walker, 22, is Walker’s oldest son.
