Tom Hanks, prior to marrying Rita Wilson, converted to her religion, the Greek Orthodox Church. After his conversion, Tom said; “I must say that when I go to church—and I do go to church—I ponder the mystery. I meditate on the ‘why?’ of ‘why people are as they are’ and ‘why bad things happen to good people,’ and ‘why good things happen to bad people’ … The mystery is what I think is, almost, the grand unifying theory of all mankind.”

Chet Hanks Daughter, Girlfriend/Wife

Chet Hanks has dated a number of women, however, the only one that came to media light was Hazel E, a Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood cast member who has a history of dating rappers from Young Berg to Rose Burgundy.

In December of 2016, Chet raised a lot of eyebrows when he revealed that he had fathered a child with one of his lovers. The woman was later revealed to be Tiffany Miles.

In a now-deleted emotional video posted on his Instagram account, Chet narrated how having his daughter helped him go sober.

“I know I’ve not been active on the ‘Gram lately, because I’ve been figuring out my life, which is what we’re all doing, and social media’s all bulls**t anyway,” the rapper said in the video.

He continued; “I want to share something today because it’s about to be shared anyway in the press, which is the fact that I have a daughter. I do have a daughter, she’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me, she’s the reason why I turned my life around and got sober. I’ve been sober — for over a year and a half — from everything.

The rapper also spoke about keeping her daughter out of the spotlight saying;

“She’s not something to be posted. She’s something that I love, that’s changed my life but the fact is she’s about to be shared with everybody so I wanted you to hear it from me.”

“It hasn’t been easy making all my mistakes in public but I’m figuring it out. I’m doing the best that I can.”

The baby’s name has since remained hidden from the public. In early 2018, Chet posted a sweet video of himself and his daughter describing her as the person who saved his life.

The best part of my year. The person who saved my life 💜

Hank’s parents have been supportive of him through his struggles. “As a parent, you love your kids unconditionally. You support them every step of the way.” his dad Tom said about him.

After Chet posted the poignant confession video on Instagram, many were quick to slam his baby mama Miles, however, Chet, despite not being in a relationship with her anymore took to Twitter to support her in a string of posts.

In another post, Chet said; “I’m just thankful that my daughter has such a great mom.”
