Sheesh, Dwight Howard gets around more than the late Mr. Shakur…
Most people just know about Dwight’s son Braylon that he has with Basketball Wives Star Royce Reed. That is the only child that he publicly acknowledges.
For years it has been known that Dwight has had other children, but the relevance of that information wasn’t important. That changed when information came out that Dwight was seeking sole custody of his son from Royce Reed. If you recall Dwight has a gag order against Royce where she basically can’t say his name in public or that he is the father of her child. When Royce has possibly said anything in violation of that order Dwight has sued her. It is to protect his image, one that has been carefully crafted. According to TMZ one of the reasons he is seeking sole custody is because of Royce’s violation of this order.
Royce claims that the violation should be voided because Dwight has other children and their mothers aren’t subjected to the same type of scrutiny.
There are also unconfirmed rumors there may be two other women who claim to have children by Howard a woman named Emili in Seminole, FL and another woman of Caribbean descent. If true that would bring the count close to Shawn Kemp levels.
So, if we are keeping count.
That is 3 kids by 3 mothers (2 kids conceived within 3 months) confirmed, 2 more kids by 2 mothers unconfirmed, possible total of 5 kids by 5 different mothers, 1 girl calling him Daddy as late as December 2011 and an upcoming R&B singer as a girlfriend.
At this rate Dwight’s current girlfriend, Christine Vest, should be pregnant and barefoot in no time at all!
Hit the flip to meet the rest of DHow’s bevy of baby mamas.
