year ago

Since Hollywood started creating big stars, the people watching their movies started having an interest in their personal lives. Whatever they were doing or not doing was a topic of discussion. And their weddings and children in particular were of massive interest. In today’s era, there are male celebrities that have had over 6 kids and that number might only keep increasing.

10. Robert De Niro, 7 children

In April 2023, Robert De Niro joyfully embraced the arrival of his seventh child, Gia, marking his first child with his girlfriend, Tiffany Chen. The seasoned Hollywood actor also shares parenthood with three other women. With his ex-wife Grace Hightower, he is a proud father to Elliot and Helen Grace.

Furthermore, his former girlfriend Toukie Smith is the mother of twins Julian and Aaron. In addition, De Niro’s first wife, Diahnne Abbott, brought forth Raphael and Drena into their lives. Notably, Drena holds a special place as De Niro adopted her, given that she was Abbott’s daughter from a previous relationship.

9. Jude Law, 7 children

Like De Niro, Jude Law reportedly welcomed his seventh child in 2023, and his second child with his wife Phillipa Coan. It was in 1996 that Law first became a father, after having a child with his now ex-wife Sadie Frost. With her, he shares Rafferty, Iris and Rudy. He then had a brief relationship with Samantha Burke, with whom he had a daughter, Sophia. The actor’s fifth child was born in 2015 out of a short relationship with Catherine Harding.

Stellan Skarsgård’s family stands as one of the most accomplished dynasties in Hollywood.

Six of Skarsgård’s children were born during his marriage to his first wife, My, while the remaining two were welcomed into the world during his present union with Megan Everett.

4. Mel Gibson, 9 children

The Braveheart star started growing his family in 1980 after having a daughter, Hannah, with his then wife Robyn Denise Moore. The latter also gave birth to other 6 children with the actor, including Milo Gibson, who followed in his dad’s step and became an actor. After divorcing Robyn, Mel Gibson briefly dated Oksana Grigorieva, and she became the mother of his 8th child, a daughter, in that time. In 2010, he called it quits with her and met Rosalind Ross, with whom he had his youngest kid in 2017, Lars Gerard.

3. Elon Musk, 10 children

Elon Musk’s family has experienced continuous expansion since 2002 when his first son, Nevada Alexander, was born. Sadly, Nevada passed away after just 10 weeks. In the aftermath of this tragedy, Musk and his then-wife Justine Wilson pursued IVF, resulting in the birth of twins in 2004 and triplets in 2006.

Subsequently, in 2020, he welcomed a son with singer Grimes, with whom he later had a daughter in March 2022. However, unbeknownst to many, Musk quietly welcomed another set of twins between 2020 and 2022, this time with a high-ranking executive from one of his companies.

2. Eddie Murphy, 10 children

Eddie Murphy has 10 children with 5 women. His first child, Eric, was born in 1989 and his youngest was born in November 2018. The actor has spoken on his fatherhood journey and what he learned from it. “Along the way I realized that if you put your children first you never make a bad decision,” he said.

1. Nick Cannon, 12 children

Nick Cannon has embraced the role of a super-father, establishing an impressive lineage. Starting from 2011, the television host has welcomed twelve children into his life. Among them are the twins Moroccan and Monroe, whom he shares with pop superstar Mariah Carey.

Cannon openly expresses his joy in this paternal journey, stating in an interview, “Each day, I wake up with an overwhelming sense of excitement as a father. I am genuinely thrilled about all my children and find immense delight in every aspect of their lives. Whether it’s witnessing their accomplishments like being named citizen of the month in first grade or the joyous arrival of new additions to our family.”

But there are other celebrities as well who’ve had multiple kids, including Mick Jagger with 8 children. And some parents are forced by the circumstances with their lives to raise their kids all alone.
