Singer Ginuwine poses with his daughters Tiffany, Cypress, and Dejan at his surprise birthday event a few months ago. Together Ginuwine and his wife Solé have eight children(two together and six from previous relationships).

In a candid 2009  interview with Sister2Sister magazine, Ginuwine admitted that though he loves all of his children, he regrets fathering them with four different mothers.

Sister2Sister: How many kids do you have now?
Ginuwine: Eight.

Sister2Sister: You and Solé have how many together?
Ginuwine: Together? We only have two. She had two before me and we had two together. And I had four more before her.

Sister2Sister: I know, but how many babies’ mamas are there?

Sister2Sister: They were all different women?
Ginuwine: …(quiet)

Sister2Sister: I’m going to kill you. [laughter] If you saw a young man in your position today, what would you say to him?
Sister2Sister: I can tell you what I would say because I’ve said it before to a couple of guys. When you have a babymama here, a babymama there, it’s going to be drama, period. Regardless of what one says to you—“I’m not going to trip like that,” “I’m cool” and all that—after a while that goes out the window. After you leave that one person and you find love somewhere else, that person that you were with, they hate that.

Sister2Sister: Even if they don’t like you anymore?
Ginuwine: I think so. Because, especially when you are giving so much of yourself and so much material things to that new person and they see how they’re living now, it’s kind of a vendetta thing sometimes because they want to be in that position. I don’t regret none of my kids; I regret how I had them.

  6. Tiffiany is a beautiful girl I wouldn’t have guessed that was Ginuwine daughter. She look like she is 25 years old!! I know Ginuwine is only 40 but 8 kids total well…really 4 kids total for Ginwuine is to many. I can see if Ginuwine had maybe 2 from a previous relationship.

  7. […] Who knew that singer Ginuwine and wife of eight years Sole rivaled John and Kate with their crew of eight children? The entertainers have a blended family, with two children together and others from previous relationships.  The proud papa posed with his beautiful daughters at his recent surprise birthday party. Black Celebrity Kids […]

  8. @Na’eema, Tiffany (on the left in gray)is his bio-daughter. Dejan and Cypress (on right) are the stepdaughters. They all seem very close.

  9. If I didn’t know that they were his step-daughters, I would totally think Cypress and Tiffany were his biological daughters.

  10. Why does wikipedia say Genuwine died yesterday?!?!? WTF…i was freaking out but no other news outlets say that so they must be wrong, right!

  11. My favorite part of the interview:

    Sister2Sister: I know, but how many babies’ mamas are there?

    Sister2Sister: They were all different women?
    Ginuwine: …(quiet)

    LOL! Genuwine was a bit on the sloppy side. Anyway, I’m glad he and Sole made it official.

  12. Man, I didn’t know he had eight kids???? Yikes, that is alot G! I have to say though, they you seem to beat out Lil Wayne,atherby haveing the most kids. OMG, that is ridiculous. Please people, find one woman and marry her and just have kids with her only. WHen you have all these outside kids, that means you will have to pay alot of child support, it creates drama, you can’t see your kids grow up on a daily basis, and you are not teaching your kids how to be a proper family. Oh well, at least G was man enough to admit that if he could do it all over again, that he would do it differently.

  13. 8 Kids Total!?! I don’t know why but I always remember reading that together they only had 5 kids. I always thought Ginuwine had one son before he met Sole. Sole had two daughters before she met Ginuwine. And then they had the two daughters together. Who is that guy in the fourth pic? He looks Ginuwine’s age.
