Just one day after The Daily Beast reported that former NFL player and current U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker had a previously undisclosed 10-year-old son he fathered out of wedlock, it turns out Walker has four children.

The issue at hand isn’t the “out of wedlock” part of the story. People have children without getting married all the time. But the fact that Walker has been outspoken in the past about “absent fathers,” particularly in the Black community, belies some serious hypocrisy.

“I want to apologize to the African-American community, because the fatherless home is a major, major problem,” Walker said in a September 2020 interview.

In an interview with Diamond and Silk, Walker asked “What about teaching our Black men that if you lay down with a woman and you make a baby, it is your responsibility to stay there and make sure that child is raised?”

According to the latest reporting by The Daily Beast, Walker has four children:

• His son Christian, 22, who has been very publicly a part of Walker’s life and promoting his father’s political aspirations.

• A 10-year-old son living in Texas who was acknowledged yesterday. The child’s mother reportedly had to sue for child support and Walker apparently has spent no time with the boy.

• The second of Walker’s previously undisclosed sons was born to a woman living in Texas and is now 13 years old.

• He also fathered a daughter, now grown, when he was 20-years-old and in college.

The Daily Beast reports that, in the case of Walker’s 10-year-old, the football star seems to have played very little role. Regarding his 13-year-old son, Walker seems to have been present on at least two occasions, according to social media photos. But it’s unclear how active he’s been beyond that.

Walker gave this statement to The Daily Beast last night:

I have four children. Three sons and a daughter. They’re not ‘undisclosed’—they’re my kids. 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? I can take the heat, that’s politics, but leave my kids alone.

As The Daily Beast notes, Walker has made a point over the years to criticize absentee fathers, urging parents in several public statements to “hug your child.”

He specifically singles out the Black community. As recently as 2020, he said “you can leave the wife, but don’t leave your child,” a familiar message he’s shared several times over the years.

The most recent polling for the race in Georgia, conducted by the Center for Survey Research at East Carolina University, showed Walker and Warnock tied at 46 percent of registered voters in the state.
