How many kids does Future have?

In total, Future has eight confirmed children. The eldest of Future's children is Jakobi Wilburn, born on June 30, 2002, to Jessica Smith. Shortly after Jakobi was born, Future and Jessica Smith parted ways, leading to some contention over the years concerning child support and Future's involvement in his son's upbringing.

This dispute came to a head in 2016 when Jessica Smith filed a lawsuit against Future, alleging child support negligence and accusing him of failing to be present in Jakobi's life, per Hot New HipHop. Despite these challenges, Jakobi has carved out his own path in the music industry under the moniker King Kobi. Since 2020, he has dropped a number of singles and projects, including tracks like NORP SEASON and Kobi$torm.
