With the tragic death of Adrian Peterson's son last week, his family life has been under a microscope, especially the number of children who call him dad.
We reported that it was revealed that the Minnesota Vikings running back fathered a fourth child, but now it looks as though he is actually the biological father to seven children.
According to TMZ, Erica Syion, a former gentlemen's club dancer from Dallas, Texas, confirmed that Peterson is actually a father to seven children with various mothers. Syion and Peterson met in 2007 and have a 4-year-old son together, who knows of four of his brothers and sisters.
When Syion first called TMZ, they were under the impression that the football star had a total of five kids, but stood corrected when she called back.
Syion reported that although Peterson may not be the world's greatest dad, he does make sure his children are set financially. Adrian does visit Syion's son now and then, especially during the summer months. It is unknown how involved of a dad Peterson is in his other kids' lives.
Will Peterson's kid count continue to rise, or will the number stop at seven?
