It has been ten years since Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009.
Michael Jackson's children
Away from the cameras, The King of Pop tried to create an environment of love, attention and special moments for his three children, Michael Joseph "Prince" Jackson Jr., Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince Michael "Blanket" Jackson.
The legendary singer was known as a doting father. The insider said:
“Absolutely loved his kids, and they loved him. You really watched him with his kids and you didn’t see a selfish narcissist or a celebrity. You saw a very caring, giving father who wanted to be simple and quiet and teach his children about the world.”
There’s certainly a case to be made that Michael’s difficult childhood spurred him to take a far gentler approach to fatherhood.
So who and where Michael's children are now?
Prince was born on February 13, 1997, to Jackson's second wife Debbie Rowe.
He was raised by his father and was 12 when he passed away.
In 2018 Prince paid the ultimate tribute to the late superstar by having the iconic singer inked on his leg.
He studied at Loyola Marymount University in California and in May 2018 was revealed to be dating fellow student Molly Schirmang.
In May 2019, Prince graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration.
Paris now works as a model, actress and activist.
She was born on April 3, 1998, and is the second child of Jackson and wife Debbie Rowe.
She was only 11 when her father passed away.
Paris dated model Cara Delevingne in 2018 but they have since gone their separate ways.
As of 2019 Paris is in a relationship with Gabriel Glenn, who is in a band called The Soundflowers along with Paris.
The youngest of the three Jackson siblings was born on 21 February, 2002.
Prince Blanket, 17, was conceived through IVF and was born to a surrogate mother.
In 2002, Michael Jackson faced backlash after dangling Blanket over the balcony of a Berlin hotel.
Speaking to the press after the event, Jackson said:
"I got caught up in the excitement of the moment. I would never intentionally endanger the lives of my children."
Interestingly enough, the boy wants to follow her father's footsteps and has dreams of being a musician.
At the end of the day, it seems that all children of the King of Pop found their vocation and feel completely happy. And we are, in fact, also happy for them!
