MLK Day

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

If Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. were alive today, he would be expecting his first grandchild:

Martin Luther King III, the eldest son of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., announced that he has married longtime girlfriend Arndrea Waters and that the couple are expecting a baby daughter. β€œThis is great news that a grandchild of Martin Luther King is coming into the world. Our legacy continues.”

King III married Waters shortly after his mother’s passing, but the couple decided to keep the marriage private until now. King III is the first of Martin Luther King Jr.’s four children to get married, and he will be the first sibling to have a child.

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

    Good for their family..MLK’s kids are strong and brave for carrying such a legacy and that was due to a solid faith and a STRONG BLACK WOMAN at the helm..

    Love the story, but I don’t believe they have been married a year and a half. She got pregnant, they got married. You know, the old “Brandy and Solange” trick.

  • hey

    Congratulations!!! keep the genes flowin’ πŸ˜›

    @Bahama Mama

    Martin Luther? the religious leader who is considered the founder of Protestantism? yes, he was white.

    kellz, they said the mama didn’t hide the fact that she didn’t want ANY of them to ever get married – selfish is one of the words that comes to light – they really respected her/afraid, whatever, but they didn’t do it .. i don’t know if she just wanted them to herself, if she was protecting them from the cheating drama she had to go through with their daddy or if she just wanted the legacy to end there [some say all] but whatever it was, as soon as she passed away, he secretaly married his girlfriend and now this blessing – she just didn’t like them with anyone and it’s very strange but at least he’s brave enough to defile her now.

  • WhyAmIBuggin'

    WOW..I didn’t realize that MKL III is fifty.

    I think he looks like Coretta Scott King around

    the eyes.

    Congrats on the new Grandchild!

  • Oh F@ck That!!!

    @DM…EXACTLY!!!! That’s what I was just about to say in responce to Kellz’ question. THEY WASN’T NO DAYUM MARRIED before she got knocked up and he should be ashamed of bein so old with a “girlfriend” LMAO and SMDH.

    But still….congrats to them and I hope they are happy and healthy. But these celebs need to stop tryin’ to play our intellegence.

    But as far as Brandy goes, we all know she was never married cuz baby daddy and his cousin Rodney Jerkins told us so lmao!!!!

    But we saw Solange’s wedding pictures on the beach so I can believe that although it was shotgun and not for love. But I don’t know if they are still married 4 years later though.

    Congrats! I’m happy a King grandbaby is on the way. But I’m definitely suspicious of this marriage. Seems like with such a recognizabe name that some county worker would have noticed the marriage certificate being filed.

  • b

    Why are you all supicious of this marriage. You don’t know this man. Is that hard just to be happy for someone.

    I think it’s really random that out of four kids, only one is going to have a child, and that’s at the age of 50. The oldest daughter is dead, and the youngest daughter is in her late 50s, so she won’t pop out any babies anytime soon.

    I guess my question is, which one of these four kids is gay? I know one of them has to be. It’s way too ironic.

    Why do the people who want peace and love get killed and we let the zombies run free?

    Dexter is the son that looks like MLK. It’s always funny when the namesake looks nothing like the father. So where is a pic of the wife?
