Being a professional athlete is an extraordinary accomplishment. Only a select few from their chosen sport can rise to the kind of dedication it takes to be a professional athlete. As they grow up and conquer every level of their sport, they are revered like Gods. Everyone pats them on the back and wants to be part of their special journey. It is the best of the best. And often times, professional teams are looking for the youngest and brightest to add to their organizations. Once they are drafted and signed, these athletes are given the world. They are treated like first class citizens and feel like they are infallible.
With new money comes many perks. Amazing cars, homes, jewelry, everything and anything they can afford. The world is a series of endless possibilities for many athletes and they party like it’s never going to end. And with the money and parties comes the women. Women of all types arrive willing and able to be part of their journey, and some, look for a meal ticket from these young studs. It is a dangerous combination for athletes who travel constantly and look for the one night stand. Now athletes certainly are not innocent when it comes to partying and their desire to sleep around. However, they are big targets and combined with their immaturity and new-found financial windfalls, these athletes can really get themselves into a lot of trouble.
And just to give you an idea of how much trouble they can get into and how extreme it can be, six babies with six different women doesn’t even crack our top 10! (Note: This list is comprised of confirmed number of kids. Some athletes have been rumored to have even more). These are the Top 10 Professional Athletes With The Most Kids And Baby Mamas.
10 Vladimir Guerrero – (8 Kids And 5 Mamas)
9 Muhammad Ali – (9 Kids And 5 Mamas)
8 Antonio Cromartie – (12 Kids And 9 Mamas)
7 Evander Holyfield – (11 Kids And 8 Mamas)
Evander Holyfield was known as “The Real Deal” inside the boxing ring. In addition to that nickname, “The Warrior” as he was also often referred to, battled with every ounce of his will in all of his fights. He moved up weight classes and won championships at many different levels. He was a fan favorite for his relentless never say die mentality in the ring. He most famously squared off against Mike Tyson at the MGM Grand where he lost a piece of his ear. Tyson may have gnawed on Holyfield inside the ring, but outside, it was the ladies that were all over “The Real Deal.” Holyfield is running with a total of at least 11 kids with 8 baby mamas. Holyfield, a shell of himself inside the ring, has remained in boxing far too long, in part, to help with the demand for child support from all the kids he had with all the different women.
6 Shawn Kemp – (7 Kids And 6 Mamas)
5 Willie Anderson – (9 Kids And 7 Mamas)
4 Willis McGahee – (9 Kids And 8 Mamas)
3 Jason Caffey – (10 Kids And 8 Mamas)
2 Travis Henry – (11 Kids And 10 Mamas)
1 Calvin Murphy – (14 Kids And 9 Mamas)
Being number one on this list doesn’t win you any awards. Nicknamed the “Pocket Rocket” during his NBA career, Calvin Murphy was drafted by the San Diego Rockets (now, Houston Rockets). The team eventually moved to Houston. Murphy became a legend in Houston for his incredible play on the court. The 5-foot-9-inches-tall guard defied logic against larger opponents by being a ferocious defender and regularly leading the league in free-throw percentage. He was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1993. On a side note: he was accused and acquitted of molesting 5 of his daughters. You just have to shake your head at Murphy. For us, he has been inducted into our Hall of Shame for having fathered at least 14 children with 9 different women. Words just can’t describe those numbers. I’ll just let that marinate and close the books on this.
