Georgia Republican Senate Nominee Herschel Walker Says “I’ve Never Denied My Children,” After Confirming He Has A Total Of Three Children Unknown By Public
The contradicting past of Georgia senate hopeful Herschel Walker continues to come to light.
Following reports that the 60-year-old politician fathered a child he has no contact with, the former football running back recently confirmed that he actually has three! Herschel Walker has condemned absent Black fathers many times during his run to gain a Georgia senate seat, while self-proclaiming himself as a “role model father.”
According to reports, in addition to the one son he fathered over a decade ago, Herschel has another unidentified son, 13, and an adult daughter who was born while the republican was still in college. However, the only son regularly mentioned by Herschel is Christian Walker, whom he shares with his ex-wife and raises with his current partner. Reportedly, Herschel has paid child support to at least one of his children’s mothers since 2014.
Partially confirming the allegations, Herschel claims that his other children’s identities were purposely withheld from the messiness of politics. He stated:
“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?….Saying I hide my children because I don’t discuss them with reporters to win a campaign? That’s outrageous. I can take the heat, that’s politics – but leave my kids alone.”
Herschel will be attempting to steal the Georgia senate seat from democratic incumbent Raphael Warnock in the upcoming election this November. Only time will tell if his questionable past will hurt him in the eyes of voters.
