8. Muhammad Ali

9 children with 5 women

The greatest boxer and to some. the greatest athlete of all-time, Muhammad Ali also made himself quite a large family and that is putting it lightly. The boxing legend made four children with his second wife, two daughters with his third wife, and an adopted son with his fourth wife. On top of this, Ali also had two more daughters from extramarital relationships, which brings his tally to seven daughters and two sons with five different women. One of his daughters followed in his footsteps and became a successful boxer herself as Laila Ali finished her career in 2007 with an undefeated record of 24 wins (21 by KO). It is unfortunate that this absolute legend had passed away from us, but it’s abundantly clear his legacy is set in stone and his family will do everything to keep Ali remembered in a bright light. Rest in Peace.
