Legendary rapper DMX passed away yesterday, but he made sure he left a lot of seeds before he left. The rap legend had a tattoo on the neck from Exodus 1: 7th saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and your children will inherit the world.”
DMX is said to have fathered at least 17 children. The rapper has publicly recognized 15 of these children. The last two – two 1-year-old boys – were born to a Philadelphia woman who many refer to as a “side chick” online.
DMX was married to ex-wife Tashera Simmons for 14 years and they shared four children. The other thirteen children come from ten different relationships in his life. MTO News has broken down the family tree.
DMX son Exodus Simmons was born in 2016 and was the rapper’s first child with his fiancée Desiree Lindstrom. Desiree announced the birth of her child on her Facebook page and said, “I’m so in love with his little feet, thank God.”
He will be 5 years old this year.
DMX introduced the world to his daughter Aaliyah at BETs 106 & Park. He told fans that he named his daughter after the late Aaliyah Houghton, who tragically died in a plane crash in 2001.
“This is my personal, special homage to Aaliyah,” said the rapper before presenting his little bundle of joy. Aaliyah is now 10 years old. DMX never revealed who their mom is.

DMX and Tashera have a 20 year old son named Tacoma Simmons. Tacoma claims on his Instagram that he is a music composer. In 2019, his mom posted a picture of him on her Instagram page to wish him well after quitting college.
DMX and Tashera also have an 18 year old son, Sean. Sean describes himself as a soccer player on his IG profile picture. Although he’s not in the spotlight on his life, his mom has shared pictures of him on Instagram.

The youngest child from Tashera and DMX is Praise Mary Ella Simmons. She is 15 years old. Tashera shared pictures of her on Instagram in 2019.
DMX also has a daughter Sonovah Junior. She is a teenager who is apparently already following in her father’s footsteps by engaging in music. A few weeks ago DMX shared a post on his Instagram promoting his daughter’s song “I Hate Zoom”.
Tashera confirmed in an interview with Essence Magazine that DMX fathered six children outside of their wedlock. Not much is known about the other children
But we do know that DMX had a child from a woman named Monique Wayne. Billboard reported that she gave birth to a boy in April 2004, and DNA testing showed DMX was the father. Years later, DMX claimed that Monique “raped” him while he was sleeping. She successfully sued him for $ 1.5 million in a defamation lawsuit.
DMX also has two children from model Yadira Borrego. According to The Sun, Yadira had a relationship with the rapper “Party Up” for years. She occasionally shares pictures of her adorable kids on her Instagram page.
