When Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, passed away in 2009, he left behind three children. His daughter Paris and sons Prince and Blanket were devastated, but they’ve managed to thrive after their father’s death.
While he was together with Deborah Jeanne Rowe, Michael Jackson had two children: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr (known as Prince), who was born on February 13, 1997, and Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, who was born on April 3, 1993.
Because they were so close in age, Paris and Prince were also close friends. It’s clear from their childhood photos how much they loved each other.

happy 18th to my best friend & brother. we've been through so many ups & downs together, & it's made us nothing but strong. we don't tell each other often, but i love him to the freaking moon & back. he has always been my role model & i've idolized him since forever, i always know he's looking out for me & protecting me from shitty people. i'm so proud of all of his accomplishments & can't wait to see his future successes ❤️
In 1999, Deborah and Michael got a divorce, and Michael got full custody of Paris and Prince.
In 2002, Michael Jackson welcomed his third child, Prince Michael Jackson II (known as Blanket) to the world.
Blanket was born via a surrogate using Michael Jackson’s sperm. The surrogate’s identity was not announced at the time of Blanket’s birth. Since his father’s death, Blanket has mostly stayed out of the spotlight.
