  1. I actually met Phillip Bailey’s first wife back in the early eighties. My sister and she was friends during that time, so my sister and I went to their home and visited with her and the children. I know that they had either four or five children. We had a good time chatting and taking pictures with them. What a beautiful family and also a lovely home.

  2. Philip has 6 children,4 with his first wife,a daughter from one of the members of the group the Emotions,and 1 child with his second wife.

    • Hi Philip Bailey’s first wife was a strong Sister from his hometown Denver they were married for 32 yrs and had 4 children together.Two of the children are on that picture you have at the top of the page.Sir,and Trinity,the others are daughter inlaw Alita,Grandson and Alita’s nece.His and Firstwife Janet’s children are all grown.Creed and Philip Jr. are the other two children who are not in the picture.Philip Jr. now sing with EWF.Philip have two sons with his wife Krystal Johnson-Bailey.

  3. I always thought phillip bailey was with an asian woman according to pictures that used to be on display in magazines about his lovelife. I did not think he was strong enough to get with a sista and stay. That goes to prove that you can not believe most of what you see. I recall my mom say that phillip could holler louder than many women when he sang with earth, wind and fire. He had a strong set of lungs, then. By the way, he has a handsome family.

  4. EWF bagan in the 70s. Im sure his first wife had 3 or 4 children and/or a groupie might have gotten pregnant. My guess he has 4 adult children and grandchildren who are about the same age range as two young children in picture.

    • Yes, Jai, he’s the one in the middle.

      Wow! I haven’t seen or hear about Philip in ages. He’s one of the best falsetto singers of all times from one of the best groups of all times! Boy, I miss old school music.

      • i agree with you about his voice, im pretty young but i know how legendary ewf is. “children of the ghetto”

      • Hi Teri,
        Philip Bailey has 5 children from his 1st marriage and 2 from his second marriage. Yes you are correct his is one on the best Falsetto singers of all time. He is the lead singer and one of the original band members of Earth Wind & Fire and is currently on tour with Chicago. His is a well accomplished solo artist as well as an incredible gospel singer. I strongly suggest you try and catch the end of this summer tour, It is a fantastic concert with these two bands.
