    Grandchild’s name is Yolanda, named after her aunt who passed away last year. It is Bernice King that is in the photo with her brother and sister-in-law, and baby niece.

    Congrats to the family!

    I am not surprised that both brothers started breathing and living more after the death of their mom. I live in Atl and I ofter heard horror stories about how no woman was good enough in the eyes of their mother. Just like JFK jr. When his mom past, he quit being an attorney. He never wanted to be one but that was the profession his mom pushed him into. It took 3 times for him to pass the bar. I don’t think it was a surprise that he started doing what he wanted after she was gone. I could not imagine the pressures being a child of a Kennedy or King. I betcha it was harder on those girls. I would like to have been a fly on the wall going over to meet Coretta for the 1st time.

    God Bless that child

    Wow the first grandchild. Are you sure? None of Kings children had kids before this?

  • I'm Just Me

    WOW!! Congratulations to the happy family. That is a wonderful blessing.

  • lisa

    This is beautiful! If you could have heard Martin, III speak about it, there was nothing but joy emanating from his voice and his body language.

    first grandchild?? wow. this is beautiful…thats a hell of a family legacy to be born into.

  • Whatchaknoaboutdat?

    The King children are getting old… it’s about time one of them had a baby. They should have been spitting them out yearly to keep the King legacy going strong.

    Why does someone discriminate black? I don’t think love is just belongs to white. I’m a black and but my hubby is white. We met at +((((+ I n t i m a t e m i n g l e. c o m +))))+which tell us love is color blind. Our love proved this. I hope each one will not discriminate blacks.

    I would like to thank +((((+ I n t i m a t e m i n g l e. c o m +)))+for bringing a very close friend from 17 years ago. I never had the chance to express how I really felt. I had always watched her from afar, but due to Mutual friends it wouldn’t be right, but now we are planning to meet for new years eve. We have exchanged dozens of e-mails and phone calls. She now knows how I felt for her 17 years ago, And our future is as bright as ever.

    Is it just me or does MLK III look like Sherman Klump from nutty professor? I’m just saying…

    1st grandchild well dang! dont rush into things! they look like

    they should got a start on it sooner.

  • Til You Do Right By Me...

    @ smokey

    Remember he just married her not too long ago. Yeah, it does seem really strange that as old as the King kids are that this is the first grandchild. I guess SOMER makes a good point!

    Congrats to them though!

  • $m♥K.E.Y.

    Somer, Til You Do Right By Me

    Good points, Somer has a valid point, so I guess thats why

    they just started the family. Makes sense is that is accurate.

  • omni101


    yep a shame that they never conceived and grand child before their mother died. I always wondered why?

    Public service ain’t all that… they put it off until she died, how terrible… that’s my 2 cents

  • Suchin Pak Mtv News

    wow congrats! dang i would feel hella pressure to be on my best behavior through out my life being born into that family. cus u know the media especially the WHITE media is going to be waiting for something negative to happen…

  • Divab

    God Bless Them!! 🙂 Congrats King Family!

  • Anna

    That is so special. Maybe they will have a son and name him Martin like his dad and grandfather. Where is Dexter the other brother?

  • Kam

    Is MLK III pregnant? He needs to do some crunches or something. Put down the BBQ ribs!!



  • K-ten
