On June 15, 2022, the then-GOP Georgia Senate nominee and former National Football League (NFL) superstar Herschel Walker disclosed in an interview with The Daily Beast that he had four children. He went ahead to state that three of his children were born to different women.
Many were appalled by this revelation, considering that Walker had never disclosed such information to the public. Until then, the former NFL player had only acknowledged his son Christian. And while he denied allegations of trying to keep information pertaining to his children a secret, the revelations certainly portrayed him in a negative light. That’s especially considering that “fatherless households” was a topical issue at the time.
Many began to dig into Walker’s history in an attempt to unearth his baby mamas. Here’s the latest we know about the retired footballer’s current wife, ex-partners, and children.
More About Herschel Walker

Who Is Herschel Walker’s Wife?
Herschel Walker is married to a woman named Julie Blanchard.
Blanchard was largely unknown prior to being associated with Walker. She only began to receive extensive media coverage after tying the knot with the former NFL player.
More About Julie Blanchard
Julie Blanchard’s birthdate, birthplace, and parents are unknown. There’s no information on her education background either. She has succeeded in keeping these details away from the public even after becoming a celebrity wife.
Many people put Blanchard in the 45 – 55 age range based on her physical appearance. But then again, looks can be deceiving.
Since there’s little information on Julie Blanchard to go on, we’re yet to uncover her professional career. However, her WordPress blog describes her as an art enthusiast. So, she probably studied art or works in the art industry.
Blanchard spends her free time painting portraits of people and places around her. She also does a bit of drawing and photography.
When Did Julie Blanchard Marry Herschel Walker?
Julie Blanchard and Herschel Walker reportedly began dating in 2009. However, there’s no information yet on how the couple met and where their romantic escapades took them. It appears both Julie and Herschel have always preferred to keep their private lives under wraps.
Blanchard and Walker exchanged wedding vows in May 2021 after dating for more than a decade. Predictably, details of their wedding venue remain a mystery.
Does Julie Blanchard And Herschel Walker Have Children Together?
Julie Blanchard and Herschel Walker have no children together. That’s understandable, considering their rather advanced ages.
Who Is Herschel Walker’s Ex-wife?
Herschel Walker was in a long union with a woman named Cindy DeAngelis Grossman before meeting his current wife Julie Blanchard.
Cindy Grossman was born on January 6, 1962, in Georgia, to Thomas DeAngelis. Her mother’s identity is unknown.
Grossman attended local schools for her elementary and high school education. She later earned a business degree from the University of Georgia.
Cindy Grossman and Herschel Walker met during their college years through Herschel’s sister who was Grossman’s high school acquaintance. The two began dating almost immediately. One thing led to another and the couple eventually walked down the aisle on March 31, 1983. They were blessed with a son named Christian, who rose to prominence on social media for his conservative rants.
However, Grossman and Walker’s marriage was far from being a ‘happily ever after’ as the couple fought on numerous occasions. Matters gradually came to a head and the pair divorced in 2002.
Later revelations uncovered a side of Walker’s character that might have led to his separation from his first wife.
For instance, text messages between Walker’s current wife and one of his exes suggesting the retired NFL superstar asked his girlfriend to abort two of their babies hit the media.
Apparently, Walker impregnated his girlfriend in 2009 while they were dating but paid for an abortion. The woman produced a $575 receipt for an abortion to back up her accusations. Things went south after the woman ignored Walker’s demands to procure the second abortion.
Walker’s son Christian rallied behind the woman in bashing his dad for pressuring his ex-girlfriend to get an abortion despite being an anti-abortion crusader.
Who Are Herschel Walker’s Other Baby Mamas?
Herschel Walker has four children – Christian and two more sons and a daughter. However, the names of his other children are unknown. Their mothers’ identities are a mystery too.
Besides the woman who came forward accusing Walker of pressuring her to abort their second baby, Walker’s other two baby mamas are unheard of.
Julie Blanchard Gossip and Controversy
Although Walker has been involved romantically with multiple women, the focus now appears to be on his current wife Julie Blanchard.
Blanchard may have managed to escape media attention for the most part. However, she was recently under investigation for voting in the 2020 US Presidential election from Georgia despite residing in Texas.
In her defense, Blanchard stated that she owns a house in Georgia and possesses a driving license from the state.
