Herschel Walker is running for a United States Senate position in Georgia, looking to unseat Raphael Warnock, a Democrat that won the seat in the 2020 election. While the former Dallas Cowboys running back tries to continue his political career, he is now facing reports that he had not just one secret child but several of them.

Just a day after a report confirming he had a secret, estranged second son, Walker admitted to having two other kids unbeknownst to the public, according to Roger Sollenberger of The Daily Beast. The Cowboys’ former star issued a statement defending his parenting and professing his love for his children.

“I have four children. Three sons and a daughter. They’re not ‘undisclosed’—they’re my kids,” Walker said in his statement. “I support them all and love them all. I’ve never denied my children, I confirmed this when I was appointed to the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition, I just chose not to use them as props to win a political campaign. What parent would want their child involved in garbage, gutter politics like this?”

Walker has been very critical of absent Black fathers in the past. The hypocrisy in Walker’s stance is clear, though what is also clear is that even the most insane hypocrisy doesn’t directly harm the political ambitions in the United States. The former Cowboys star was heavily embraced by Donald Trump during the former president’s term.

The former face of the Cowboys did not hide his oldest child, Christian, a 22-year-old and conservative social media personality who has also railed against Black fathers for being absent. Herschel Walker was appointed to the Co-Chair position of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition in 2018 by Trump.

The 60-year-old Walker also called out the NFL’s decision to incorporate the Black Lives Matter message, a critique that many other Republicans share. During his playing days, he made two Pro Bowls in his 12-year NFL career, most of which came with the Cowboys and the rest coming with the Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants.
