Adrian Peterson

5th Baby with (At Least) 4th Baby Mama

10/16/2013 7:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


Adrian Peterson
's baby count is now at 5 ... 'cause a 4th woman has surfaced who has a child with the NFL star, TMZ has learned.

This time, the baby mama is Erica Syion -- a former dancer who worked at a gentlemen's club in Dallas, TX. Erica and Adrian have a 4-year-old son together.

Sources connected to the situation tell us ... the two have a financial arrangement, in which Adrian gives Erica money to pay for the kid's schooling, as well as living expenses.


We're told the two met in Houston back in 2007 ... but their relationship has deteriorated in the past few years.

Sources tell us Adrian IS involved in the child's life -- but Erica is the primary parent, with Adrian visiting when he can.

In total, Adrian has fathered (at least) 5 children: 2 kids he referenced in a 2009 documentary ... one was 4 at the time. He didn't mention the age of the other (it's likely he was referencing his son with Erica).

Since then ... he fathered Adrian Peterson Jr. (who's 2-years-old) and a 3-month-old daughter with a waitress in Minnesota. His other son, a 2-year-old, passed away last week.

It's possible his 8-year-old and AP Jr. have the same mom -- but so far, we haven't been able to confirm.

Don't blacks get married. All they seem to do is get girls pregnant then move on to the next girl to get her pregnant. Shame on them. And shame on the women for letting this happen. The sons they will have will think this is the proper way to treat a woman... To get her pregnant, not marry her, then leave. And the daughters will think it is right to have a baby and no father figure on their lives. This will be an ugly cycle. This guy Adrian didn't even know he had the son who died last week until a week ago. Guys, stay with the woman you have a family with. Be a dad and father to your kids. Teach them values. Don't teach them by example that a woman is just a baby making machine. :(

Will TMZ do some "reporting" about its very own Max Hodges going on a bender of alcohol and drugs in a motel?

these men who have sex with random women need to use birth control, not just to keep from impregnating women (some who are looking for payday) but also to keep from getting sexually transmitted diseases. the men are stupid and the women are just plain dumb.

Big deal- he's an NFL player who likes his women. As long as he takes care of the kids and plays some part in their life, it shouldn't matter. It's obvious he hasn't been faithful in his relationship w/ his current gf so it's either an open relationship or she's just sticking around to be w/ AP.

I don't care if he takes care of them financially - it's freaking irresponsible to have a bunch of kids with different mommas.

His current girlfriend is an idiot. She has the oldest kid with the rest of his kids with other women being younger. This means this jerk was out fooling around with waitresses and peelers while they were together. Guess fidelity isn't his strong suit. he obviously doesn't wrap it before he taps it, it's only a matter of time until he brings home a nasty disease, if he hasn't already.
