A video of Herschel Walker’s son Christian tearing into deadbeat dads is getting attention after the Republican Georgia Senate hopeful admitted late Wednesday that he has a second secret son – and a daughter from a relationship he had in college.

The revelation comes a day after The Daily Beast first reported that Walker – who has previously criticized absentee fathers in black communities – had a 10-year-old son, which he fathered out of wedlock and had to be taken to court over so the mother could receive child support. 

In a follow-up Thursday, The Daily Beast said Walker confirmed he had a second secret son, aged 13, with a different woman, and an adult daughter too – meaning the Republican has four children instead of just 22-year-old Christian, who has been helping with his father’s campaign.

In a TikTok video posted last week, Christian Walker screams hysterically into his smartphone camera about Nick Cannon announcing that he’s expecting his ninth child. 

‘Nick Cannon is everything wrong with men in America,’ Christian Walker said. ‘Get home and raise your kids!’ he screamed. 

‘So he’s too busy banging women to take care of his current kids, he can’t control his ding-a-ling, he’s out hooking up with all these women, multiple women pregnant at the same time – what is this his fifth, sixth baby mama?’ the 22-year-old continued. ‘Get home and raise your kids! And take care of the women you’re knocking up! Can you control your thing for three seconds?’ 

‘Can you just stay home and raise your kids!’ he screamed again.

Christian Walker has 125.5K TikTok followers and uses the platform and other social media sites to push conservative messages. 

Earlier this month he attracted attention by announcing on Twitter that while he was attracted to men, he was ‘NOT gay.’

It’s unclear how much Christian Walker knows about his three siblings. 

Herschel Walker’s campaign tried to push that the candidate’s children aren’t secrets by supplying a form to the Beast that Walker filled out in 2018 to be appointed to former President Donald Trump‘s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition that lists all four children and their ages. 

‘I have four children. Three sons and a daughter. They’re not ‘undisclosed’—they’re my kids,’ Walker told the publication in a statement. ‘I support them all and love them all. I’ve never denied my children, I confirmed this when I was appointed to the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition, I just chose not to use them as props to win a political campaign.’ 

‘What parent would want their child involved in garbage, gutter politics like this?’ the Senate candidate added.

Walker also pushed back on the Beast’s assertion that he was hiding his children. 

‘I can take the heat, that’s politics,’ the former NFL player said, ‘but leave my kids alone.’ 

However, the campaign originally only mentioned on out-of-wedlock son in a statement provided to the Beast on Tuesday.  

Over the years, Walker has criticized fatherless households and in a 2020 interview with the conservative activist Charlie Kirk, he called the absence of fathers 'a major, major problem'

‘Herschel had a child years ago when he wasn’t married,’ the statement said. ‘He’s supported the child and continues to do so. He’s proud of his children. To suggest that Herschel is “hiding” the child because he hasn’t used him in his political campaign is offensive and absurd.’ 

The mother of Walker’s 10-year-old son went to court in 2013 for a paternity declaration and child support.

She said she and the ex-football player began their relationship on November 1, 2008. 

That was three months before the birth of Walker’s now 13-year-old son.

There are photos of Walker with the 13-year-old on his mother’s public Facebook page. 

The Daily Beast chose not to name the children and their mothers in the stories.

A poll that came out this week showed Walker deadlocked with incumbent Democratic rival, Sen. Raphael Warnock, for the highly competitive Georgia Senate seat. 

Both candidates were tied at 46 per cent, according to a survey from East Carolina University’s Center for Survey Research.

During Walker’s campaign speeches and interviews, Walker has often proudly spoken about 22-year-old Christian, who he co-parented with his ex-wife and current wife. 

He’s never mentioned other children in those remarks.

Instead, Walker has been known to take a stand against fatherless households, particularly in black communities – stating in a 2020 interview that ‘if you have a child with a woman – even if you have to leave that woman – you don’t leave that child.’

Now, Walker is being slammed as a hypocrite.

Pundit Bakari Sellers tweeted on Tuesday: ‘Herschel Walker out here lecturing black men on fatherhood and ain’t seen his kid since Obama’s first term.’

Walker’s campaign manager, Scott Paradise, gave DailyMail.com the same statement given to the Daily Beast only mentioning the first son.

Paradise also suggested it’s a double standard because Warnock is dealing with a custody dispute of his own, with his wife asking for more money now that the Democrat is a U.S. senator. 

‘Raphael Warnock is currently engaged in both a nasty mudslinging campaign and a nasty custody dispute with his ex-wife,’ Paradise told DailyMail.com. ‘He’s dodged voters by sealing the case and even has tried to dodge authorities. This is a complete double standard.’

Walker, who said in a December 2019 interview that his greatest accomplishment was being a good father, has continued to praise his son Christian, but there has been no mention his three other children. 

‘I have a 17-year-old, Christian. I love that dude. I love him to death,’ Walker said at an informal speech in 2017. ‘He’s 17, he’s trying to pull away. I tell him, “Hey, dude, until you’re big enough to throw me off, boy I’m going to kiss you and hug you.”‘

He added, ‘if you got a child, hug your child every day.’ 

A year later, at a Presidential Fitness panel appearance, Walker said that while parental involvement is ‘very, very important,’ so was ‘adults getting involved with kids, because some kid do not have a parent, a mother or a father.’

‘So I don’t think I want to leave that kid behind. I want to be involved with him as well,’ he said.

Over the years, Walker has criticized fatherless households and in a 2020 interview with the conservative activist Charlie Kirk, he called the absence of fathers ‘a major, major problem.’

‘I want to apologize to the African-American community, because the fatherless home is a major, major problem,’ Walker said, adding that he had been ‘like a father to some of those kids that had never had fathers.’ 

And in a 2021 interview, he lamented that ‘the father leaves in the black family. He leaves the boys alone so they’ll be raised by their mom.’

But again pushed home the point that, ‘If you have a child with a woman, even if you have to leave that woman – you don’t leave that child.’

Walker has also called on a team approach to parenting, and for the community to help those without father.

‘We’ve got a lot of NFL players. We have a lot of NBA players. And they want to help. They’ve given millions of dollars to Black Lives Matter. Let’s not do that,’ he said to Diamond and Silk.

‘I say what we need to do is let’s go in all the neighborhood [sic] and let’s become fathers of those fatherless child [sic]. Meaning let’s try to direct them in the right way,’ he said.

But at the same time, he has taken a anti-abortion stance, calling for a total ban with ‘no exceptions.’
