Adrian Peterson Has Fathered Between 6-8 Children 

Peterson has been marked as one of the most prolific fathers in sports history along with other stars including Kenny Anderson, Mike Tyson, Shawn Kemp, and Vladimir Guerrero.

Multiple sources mentioned that he has around 6 to 8 kids in total with different women. One of those women reportedly came forward and revealed that he has up to seven kids.  

Erica Syion, a former dancer came forward and spilled the beans on 'TMZ Live'. She, however, made things clear that Peterson dutifully pays his child support. She emailed Media Take Out and claimed that she's the mother of Peterson's second child and the oldest son named Anthony.

He came to know about one of his sons when he was in the coma at a  hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. His 2-year-old son died after suffering injuries at the hands of Joseph Patterson, the boyfriend of Ann Doohen in 2013.

Bobby Ruffin who was initially believed to be the father of the deceased baby boy went on Facebook and revealed the whole situation. As per TMZ, here's what Ruffin wrote on Facebook after Peterson received all the words of sympathy for his sons' early death:  

"So tired of this poor Adrian Peterson sh*t. Let me blow all your minds. The boy who died was my son."

"Yes A.P. he was the biological father but I raised him and he carried my name. Tyrese Robert Ruffin. I don’t blame AP for not really caring cuz him and I both found out recently who the biological father was."

"AP met my son for the first time yest when my son was already in coma. I was here today when we pulled the plug, not him. He was happily practicing and has no problem playing on Sunday."

"So yea this isn’t all out yet but I’m sick of the poor AP sh*t. He didn’t know or even meet my son. Sorry for the outburst but put yourself in my place."

Peterson was arrested in September 2014 after being accused of physical assault to one of his son. He was put on probation and fined $4000 for his action but didn't serve any jail time.

After all, the NFL suspended him until 15 April 2015 after the case was settled.
