Howard has kept the details of his private life separate, so it is unclear exactly how many children the center has. He has acknowledged fathering a son with reality television star Royce Reed, but it is believed that this son is just the first of numerous children with different mothers.
Indeed, Howard was reportedly in the hospital just last week as his latest baby mama, Christine Vest, gave birth to a child. This made headlines when word got out that Vest was in one of the celebrity suites at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. Because these suites were all full, Kim Kardashian had to give birth to her first child, North West, in a different part of the hospital.
Reed even took to Twitter to congratulate her ex on his latest child, posting a cartoon picture of a pair of overalls. Some chided the Basketball Wives star for her sarcasm, but Reed insisted the feelings were genuine.
"Why some of y'all trynna make drama out of a joyous occasion?" Reed tweeted. "If you found a congratulatory message messy check yoself! I'm blunt I don't sub!"
But the real drama came a few days later, when Reed tweeted back and forth with someone named @itsDaisyLopez, who was since deleted her account.
"@itsDaisyLopez thank you lol neither is Tiffany or Hope... or Britnie or Phiona, or Kim or Emili," Reed responded at one point.
Some are assuming that these names are all more of Howard's baby mamas. If you add in Vest and Reed, that would bring the grand total up to eight.
However, Reed later clarified that this was not the case.
"@itsDaisyLopez they're not mothers just others he was with & called crazy lol," Reed tweeted.
Tiffany Render and Hope Alexa have been linked to Howard in the past, however, and both reportedly fathered children with the basketball star in 2010.
Reed, for what it's worth, has been in a legal battle with Howard over custody of their son, Braylon. Last year, Reed asked a Florida judge to force Howard to pay her legal bills in the proceedings.
