The young celebrity kid was born on November 20, 2017, adding to Michael’s three children; his older siblings are Jada, London, and Mitez, who is from his father’s previous relationship.
According to Kijafa’s Instagram, it seemed like Michael was unexpected, but she could not hide her joy when he was born. On her Instagram, she wrote how much Michael Vick Jr. meant to him and that it was the best thing that had happened to her, which she never knew she needed. Michael’s mother calls him “Fatman” and always insists that he looks like her even though he has his father’s complexion.
His Parents’ Relationship
Michael Jr’s parents met in the early 2000s when Kijafa was a college student at Hampton University while Michael Vick was completing his first NFL season. The two seemed to like each other; they struck a friendship that turned into a romantic relationship. After dating for a while, they welcomed their first child, Jada, in 2004. Three years later, they had London.
Michael Vick and Kijafa were committed to each other, so they decided to make their relationship official, getting married in 2012. The couple has been together for over two decades; they have had their ups and downs, but they have always been loyal to each other. Their relationship seems excellent, as seen from the pictures on their social media accounts, especially on Instagram.
His Father before Meeting Kijafa
Michael’s father was attending Warwick High School, where he met Tameka Taylor; they were close buddies and liked spending time together. Before they knew it, Tameka had become pregnant, giving birth to their son Mitez. After completing high school, the two joined different universities, and their relationship collapsed due to distance and other factors.
Despite separating, Michael and Tameka continued being friends as he took part in raising his son. He has a great relationship with him and has been posting pictures of the two together on his Instagram page.
Controversies Surrounding His Father
Michael Vick Jr’s father has been the subject of several scandals; in 2004, his truck was used in the distribution of marijuana. This information got into the public and resulted in tainting his reputation; the then-coach of Falcons, Dan Reeves, lectured him on the importance of reputation and choosing the right friends.
In 2005, Michael’s father was the subject of a civil lawsuit filed by Sonya Elliot. The lady claimed that she contracted genital herpes from him; Vick knew of his condition but failed to let the lady know; she also claimed that Michael’s father had been secretly seeing a medic where he received treatment under the name Ron Mexico. The case was settled out of court.
In 2007, Michael Vick’s father informed the authorities that his son was involved in dog fighting; he had been warned about this but ignored the warnings. He was trialed for the illegal activity, pleaded guilty, and served 13 months in prison.
