When you’re a celebrity, such as Bruno Mars, there are always bound to be rumors flying around that you fathered some secret kids, are the biological child of someone else, etc. These are all things that Mars has had to deal with. Does Bruno Mars have Kids?
Bruno Mars doesn’t have kids, but by all accounts, he’s a great uncle to his brother and sisters’ kids. Not only that, but he also seems to be a fan of kids in general, often showcasing them on his social media, especially if they are dressed up as him for Halloween, or singing his songs.
Mars has had to deal with people claiming their kids are his or claiming that they are his kid, and even that Michael Jackson is his biological father. All of which have been disproven, and in the Michael Jackson story, Mars threatened legal action against the site that is known for hosting untrue news stories.
Bruno Mars as a Child
Peter Gene Hernandez was born in Hawaii and is one of six children. All of his siblings are in the music industry as well. His brother, Eric Hernandez, is his drummer and owns his own headphones company. Bruno’s four sisters formed a group The Lylas, which stands for Love You Like a Sister, and also have a reality show following their musical journey.
When Mars was 3 years old his uncle convinced him that he should perform as a young Elvis impersonator. A year later, young Bruno began performing with his family’s band, The Love Notes, five nights a week at the age of 4.
He continued to perform every night, while attending school during the day, up until he was 12 years old. At that time his parents divorced and The Love Notes stopped performing. He continued his interest in all things musical and moved to Los Angeles to pursue music as a career, after graduating high school at the age of 17.
It was after his arrival in Los Angeles that Bruno added the “Mars” to his stage name. He wanted to avoid being typecast as a Latin, Spanish singer, so he wanted to have something that was more generic. He was often told by girls that he was out of this world, so he figured he must be from Mars, and the moniker stuck.
What the Future Holds
Bruno Mars and his girlfriend have been together for over eight years now, and many wonder what the future holds, but it looks like they’re not in a hurry to have wedding bells and picket fences. When he’s been asked about marriage, he has responded by saying that he and his girlfriend are best friends and why do they need more.
He’s still young, in the prime of his life and career, so it’s no surprise that he’s not looking to have children just yet. He and his girlfriend are committed to each other, and you never know what the future holds. Nowadays younger people aren’t in as big of a rush to get married and become parents.
Despite some of the rumors that may have gone around the internet with regards to Bruno Mars and his paternity, or who he may have fathered, all of it has been disproved. Mars does not have any kids of his own and nor is his biological father Michael Jackson.
Being a celebrity can have some great moments to it, but it can also have down downsides, and nasty rumors like this. Justin Beiber wrote a song in response to a fan of his who claimed that he was the father of her child, stating that not only was he not the father, but that he didn’t even have a relationship of any sort with her.
It’s amazing how well people like Bruno Mars deal with these kinds of situations with such gracefulness, and in Mars’ case, he often just ignores it.
