Kirk Franklin, a Grammy-winning gospel singer and choir director, may be best known for founding “The Family,” a 17-voice choir, but what about his actual family?
Fans may not be aware of the vocalist for “Stomp’s” strong domestic following. Does Kirk Franklin have a wife? How many children does he have, if any? Read on to learn everything there is to know about Kirk Franklin’s family, including his wife, children, and other members.
Kirk Franklin has been married to Tammy Collins since 1996.
Although the couple had been dating for longer, the U.S. Sun claims that Kirk Franklin wed cosmetics artist Tammy Collins in 1996. When the two got married, Tammy reportedly left her work to spend more time with their family. She is highly active on social media, particularly Instagram, where she supports her musically inclined husband and kids!
On Instagram in October 2021, Kirk wrote a touching letter to Tammy in which he confessed his remorse over working too much but thanked her for reminding him that home is the finest place to be. He noted: “I’ve always felt guilty about leaving you and the kids, which makes every trip feel dishonest as I quit my first ministry to engage in ministry. I can’t let you go. Empty hands are always preferable than an empty house in my book.”

Added he, “No prize compares to the sensation of my hand encircling the lower arch of your waist as I draw you close to hear the revelations that heaven has given you to download into my spirit. I do enjoy times when everything is quiet so that I can concentrate solely on you. I’m writing this out in the open so that everyone in the universe, including demons, will understand that I’ll never change into the man I was when work was my mistress.”
Does Kirk Franklin have any kids?
Kirk and Tammy both had children from prior relationships before they got married. Tammy gave birth to a daughter called Carrington, whom Kirk legally adopted, and Kirk had his son Kerrion. Kennedy was born in 1997, and Caziah was born in 2000, after which they had two children together.
Kirk’s son Kerrion stunned the world in March 2021 by recording a phone argument between his father and himself. A portion of the audio recording purportedly shows Kirk threatening Kerrion.
In response, Kirk expressed regret to his followers and called his connection with his estranged son “toxic,” but added that they were all receiving therapy to avoid additional injury. In response, Kerrion stated that he had been away from the family for 14 years.
Caziah, Kirk’s son, has a passion for music and most recently released an EP titled “Cedars EP.” On Kirk Franklin’s Praise Sirius XM radio station, Carrington Franklin-Nakwaasah hosts a podcast titled In Real Life. Shiloh, her cute son, recently went to his first concert on Kirk Franklin’s “Kingdom” tour!
On November 24, 2022, at 9 a.m. EST, Kirk will be featured in the 2022 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
