GEORGE Foreman rose to fame in the late 1960s when he competed as Big George.
When the two-time world heavyweight champion and Olympic champion was not in the ring, he was often at home with his children.
Who are George Foreman’s children?
Foreman has been married several times over the years.
Along the way he welcomed 10 children, five sons and five daughters.
He also adopted daughters Isabella Brandie Lilja and Courtney Isaac.
His biological sons include:
George Foreman Jr
While Foreman may be known for his boxing career, his firstborn son decided to pursue a different direction.
Now George Jr. is known as a producer.
Over the years he has worked on several projects including American Inventor, Family Foreman and Foreman.
Outside of entertainment, George Jr. is known as the co-founder by IYC Capital, a Sacramento-based investment firm.
George Vormann III
George III followed in his father’s footsteps and became a professional boxer.
He competed between 2009 and 2012 and posted a 16-0 record.
After boxing, George III also got into business and co-founded EveryBodyFights Boxing and Gym.
George Foreman IV
George IV has stayed away from the limelight over the years, but has dabbled in acting and production.
In 2016 he played the lead role of Joshua BarAbba in the short film Barabba and served as a producer on the documentary film Foreman the following year.
George V has also stayed out of the spotlight over the years as there isn’t much information available about him.
George Foreman VI
George VI is Foreman’s youngest son.
Though he’s often stayed out of the limelight, he made headlines in 2014 when he was charged with assault, according to TMZ.
It’s currently unclear what happened to the charges, but he was released on $10,000 bail.
His biological daughters include:
Natalia Foreman is known today as a singer and professor.
She has taught at Long Star College since 2014 and is also a graduate student at the University of St. Thomas, according to her LinkedIn page.
Leola Foreman has also stayed out of the spotlight over the years as not much information is available about her.
Like some of her other siblings, Michi Foreman has stayed out of the spotlight as not much information is available about her.
Georgetta Foreman is known for her career as a television producer.
She has worked on several legal shows over the years, including Justice for All with Judge Cristina Perez, America’s Court with Judge Ross, and We the People with Judge Lauren Lake.
She is also a mother of two and often posts about her life on Instagram for over 1,800 followers.
Freeda Foreman followed in her father’s footsteps and became a professional boxer in 2000.
Shortly after, she retired with a 5-1 record and became a boxing promoter.
Tragically, she died of apparent suicide in March 2019 at the age of 42, according to CNN.
Why did George Foreman name all his sons George?
Traditionally, the father’s name is passed down to a son, and then it’s up to that son to carry on the legacy.
However, Foreman decided to break with tradition and name all his sons George Edward Foreman.
In March 2019, Foreman opened up about the decision, announcing that he did it to keep them united.
“I’ve named all my sons George Edward Foreman so they’ll always have something in common,” he said at the time, via PEOPLE.
“I tell them, ‘If one of us goes up, we’ll all go up together. And if one goes down, we all go down together!’”
He then joked, “I tell people, ‘If you get hit as many times as I’ve been hit by Mohammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Ken Norton, Evander Holyfield, you won’t remember many names. ‘”
While all of his sons share the name George, they’ve since earned nicknames, PEOPLE notes.
George III is called Monk, George IV is called Big Wheel, George V is called Red and George VI is called Little Joey.
Is George Foreman Married?
Over the years, Foreman has tied the knot twice.
His previous wives have included Adrienne Calhoun (1971–1974), Cynthia Lewis (1977–1979), Sharon Goodson (1981–1982), and Andrea Skeete (1982–1985).
After his fourth divorce, Foreman married Mary Joan Martelly in 1985, with whom he has been dating ever since.
At this time, details of Martelly’s personal life are unclear as she tends to stay out of the spotlight.
