TJ Jackson, the youngest member of 3T, the multi-platinum R&B music group alongside brothers Taj and Taryll and the star of The Jacksons: Next Generation on Lifetime had what some would consider a very fortunate childhood. He was born the youngest son of Tito and Dee Dee Jackson, and he’s the nephew of Michael, Jermaine, Janet and La Toya Jackson. At 37, TJ is also the parent and guardian of nine children ranging in ages 7 months to 24 years: He has four children (Royal, 16, Dee Dee 7, Jo Jo, 4, and Rio, 7 months), two stepchildren (Sage, 24 and Lexci, 21) with Frances Jackson, his wife and partner of 17 years. And he’s the co-guardian (alongside “Grandma” Katherine Jackson) of Michael Jackson’s three children: Prince, 18, Paris, 17, and Blanket Jackson, 13.
