A Florida woman has filed a paternity case naming Future as the father of a 4-month-old girl. If true, the child would be the rapper’s seventh.


TMZ reports that Eliza Seraphin—known on Instagram as Eliza Reign—filed documents in Broward County, Fla., claiming Future fathered her baby girl and then promptly ghosted on her shortly after the baby was born in April.

His sixth child—a son named Hendrix—was born just a few months before, in December.

Seraphin is asking for a judge to recognize Future as the legal father of her child, and is asking for child support (present and retroactive). She also wants the Save Me rapper to reimburse hospital expenses from her pregnancy.

Future’s parenting, by his own admission, is a bit uhmmm...hands off, shall we say. Back in 2017, the 35-year-old Scorpio man described his parenting to Beat I’s Zane Low as such:

“You have to just do music and you’re becoming this entertainer and so many people require so much of your time for different things, different obligations you have to make money, or just different obligations you have as a person in whatever the situation may be. You gotta leave town and miss out on certain things, that you feel like you should be there. Like, your dad should be a part of this moment. I gotta be like, ‘Damn, man, your daddy really a superstar and entertainer.’ My kids gotta understand, they gotta make a sacrifice, having a superstar dad.”

Since then, Future has had at least two more kids, and told radio personality Big Boy that he would love to have more.

Well, looks like Future has the baby-making part down. The parenting, however? Debatable.


As of Monday afternoon, Future had neither confirmed nor denied Seraphin’s claims.

Is he with anyone that he’s fathered kids with?
