Tyreek Hill, the Miami Dolphins wide receiver known for his speed, has made a stunning insight about his family life, hinting at having as many as 10 children. Last year, the 30-year-old faced two paternity suits, with a third woman claiming to have a child with him.

Hill already has three children from his previous relationship with Crystal Espinal, bringing the potential total to six from four women. Despite speculation, Hill didn’t refute the possibility of having even more children in his interview on the “Million Dollaz Worth Of Game” YouTube channel.

Hill was asked by one of the hosts: “You play offense but off the field, you’re the all-time leading tackler. You’ve got 10 kids. You’re just a family man!”

Hill didn’t explicitly confirm having 10 children but also didn’t deny it, prompting laughter from the hosts, rapper Gillie Da King and influencer Wallo 267.

 With his sons present in the background, Hill remarked: “Yeah man, I grew up in the south, man.

“You see what it is, you see my boys running around here. It doesn’t matter how many kids I have, a lot of people won’t be able to say Tyreek doesn’t take care of his kids though.

“I think that’s the biggest thing. I wish all of them would have been here. All my kids love coming to the game and stuff like that.

“Sometimes it can be so hard for me to like mentally lock in because I’ve got daughters too. You know how daughters are. They want to be daddy’s girl, they want to be held and tough like that.

“Sometimes it is tough but at the same time, I’ve got to be aware I’ve still got a job to do. But I’ve got to be a father to my kids in this small moment that I’ve got them here. It’s a lot.”

Since 2022, Hill has been with the Miami Dolphins after a trade from the Kansas City Chiefs, signing a lucrative deal totaling $120 million. His wife, Keeta Vaccaro, briefly appears in the interview, with no known children between them.

In March, Hill criticized his lawyers for filing for divorce without his consent just 76 days after their marriage. The NFL star withdrew his petition for divorce in Florida on January 30, just eight days after filing, with the case resolved before a hearing.

He married Vaccaro, sister of ex-NFL player Kenny Vaccaro, on November 8, 2023, after their engagement in 2021. In an interview on The Pivot, Hill mentioned disagreements with his wife when their discussions about a postnuptial agreement became known to friends.

“We had conversations about a postnup. That was really where it all spiraled from.

“All I’m going to say is, s*** gets weird when you tell people outside your family. You feel me? We’re still fresh in the marriage thing. We’re still learning, man.”

In March, DailyMail.com disclosed that Hill settled with one of the women pursuing him for child support through Florida courts. Brittany Lackner, 30, had filed a paternity suit against the NFL player, alleging he fathered her son, Soul Corazon Hill, born in February 2023.

Lackner criticized Hill for offering only $2,500 per month, considering it insufficient given his $30 million yearly salary.

“In stark contrast, the Mother is unemployed, has no income, is in debt, is on Medicaid, and has no means of support,” her lawyers protested in Broward County court filings.

After a year-long legal battle, Hill and Lackner reached a confidential agreement, with Hill officially recognized as the father of Lackner’s one-year-old child, as revealed by DailyMail.com.

Hill still has to go to trial to find out if he impregnated a second mom, Kimberly Kaylee Baker.
