Who are Mike Tyson’s Children and What are They Up To Now?

Mike Tyson has seven biological children. They are Mikey, Amir, Rayna, Miguel, Exodus (d), Milan, and Morocco. He also considers himself to be a father to his former wife’s (Monica Turner) daughter, Gena.

Just as he was legendary in the ring, Mike Tyson is also famed for his numerous romances. The boxer, who had said he viewed women as things for pleasure, got around back in the day and dated several beauties. He would end up marrying two, but these marriages ended in divorce. Tyson is now unto his third marriage and cuts the image of a changed man, a man who has dumped his wild-ways of partying, drinking, and living it up. He is now committed to living a productive post-retirement life. Also high on his priorities is taking care of his seven children borne by four different women. Tyson has kids with one of his former girlfriends, second wife Monica Turner, and present wife Lakiha Spicer.

Meet All Of Mike Tyson’s Children

1. Mikey Lorna Tyson

  • Date of Birth: 1991
  • Occupation: Model
  • Years active: N/A

Mikey Lorna Tyson is Mike Tyson’s eldest child and her mother is his former girlfriend, Kimberley Scarborough. It seems the boxer and Kimberley did not really date for long as he wanted her to get an abortion when she found out that she was pregnant. The lady refused though and Tyson tried to settle her with a million dollars. She, however, stuck to her guns and insisted that he recognize Mikey as his daughter. That tenacity has paid off and father and daughter are on good terms with each other.

On a personal note, Mikey struggled with her weight for the longest time but she was able to achieve a reasonable weight. She is now a plus-size model and has been profiled in some magazines. She typically stays out of the spotlight but in 2020, she and her dad were dragged into the headlines against their will. Several news reports alleged that Tyson was willing to pay any willing man out there $10 million to marry his daughter. This was obviously false and the news agency was asked to take it down or face legal action.

  • Date of Birth: 14tn February 1996

Tyson’s Daughter Exodus Died At The Age Of Four In 2009

Mike Tyson has had his share of personal grief but the most hurtful was in May 2009 when his daughter, Exodus, died at the age of four. Exodus was born in 2005 and lived primarily with her mother, Sol Xochitl, and elder brother, Miguel. She had a happy childhood but her life was cut short by a tragic home accident. The girl had been playing on a piece of treadmill equipment in her mother’s house when her head got caught up in a loop tied around the handle which choked her.

Exodus’ body was first discovered by her brother who alerted their mom. Their mom called emergency services and she made it to the hospital where she was pronounced brain dead. The death devastated Tyson as well as his other kids who had grown to love Exodus. He blamed himself for her death and it changed him forever. The boxer has managed to piece his life together and keeps the memory of his daughter alive by counting her among his living children.
