Mathew Knowles has not one but two love children. The first is a son, 7-year-old Nixon Knowles, who Beyoncé’s and Solange’s dad was forced to cough up child support for, according to Hollywood Life. Nixon’s existence was revealed in 2010 and was the result of an affair with Alexsandra Wright, which occurred while he was married to his famous daughters’ mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson. In 2014, Taqoya Branscomb spoke to Inside Edition about her daughter, 6-year-old Koi, who she said was found to be Knowles’ daughter through a 99.9-percent accurate paternity test.
The baby Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade fathered while on a break from dating actress Gabrielle Union isn’t quite a love child by definition, but the pair’s eight-year relationship ended only briefly in 2013. Entertainment Tonight reported Wade’s youngest son, 4-year-old Xavier Zechariah Wade, was born to “Basketball Wives” star Aja Metoyer in November of that year, just one week before Wade and Union officially became engaged. The couple worked through the issue together and Union had been aware of Xavier’s existence prior to Wade’s marriage proposal.
