The couple has since had four more children – Penelope Anne, River Samuel, Viggo Moriah and Wilhelmina Jane – all before the age of 30.
4. Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne grew up fast. He dropped out of school at the age of 14 to focus on his musical career, had his first child Reginae when he was 15-years-old and achieved and launched his rap career around this same time period.
