Majors’ Married Status Is Unclear but Has a Daughter
The White Boy Rick star actor prefers to keep his personal life away from the eyes of the media and public. Due to this, not much is known if he is currently in a relationship with a girlfriend, married to a wife, or doing none.
That being said, Majors does have a daughter. During an interview with People in June 2020, he admitted having a 7-year-old daughter who is of mixed race. He went on to state that he hopes his daughter gets a good education, which she deserves.
According to the report, he welcomed her with his unrevealed partner before he attended the Yale School of Drama. By then, he had already attended a performing arts high school in Texas and the University of North Caroline School of the Arts.
“I have a 7 year old who’s mixed race,” he said. “She has to understand that it’s actually not ‘black history’— it’s American history. The way it’s taught now, its honestly the Jim Crow system of separate but equal.”
He continued, “We’ll give it one month, 12 pages in the history book…we’ll talk about Harriet Tubman, Rosa Park, MLK, then we’ll give you a little quiz about it. And that’s it.”
Other than that, he didn’t disclose his daughter’s name or any other identifying details. He has also not revealed his daughter’s picture or his baby mama.
His Own Father Was In the Air Force
