How Many Kids Does Adrian Peterson Have? He's Fathered at Least 7 Children

As the Adrian Peterson allegations of child abuse mount – the latest one is a year old, and authorities took no action – a popular question has sprung up: Just how many kids does the great Minnesota Vikings running back have?

Good luck finding a firm answer. When asked by ESPN in 2013 how many kids he had, Peterson said, “I know the truth, and Iā€™m comfortable with that knowledge.ā€

Spoken like somebody who has something to hide.

After Peterson’s 2-year old son – a child he never got to meet – died in 2013, the media began asking questions about Peterson’s off-the-field life, and the results were somewhat surprising.

A dancer at a gentleman’s club in Houston told the NY Post and TMZ that Peterson had fathered seven children – it’s unclear with how many women – but he “dutifully‘ pays child support.

Peterson is 29.
