  • Sean "Diddy" Combs is a father of seven.

  • The family includes Quincy, Justin, Christian, Chance, Jessie James, D'Lila Star, and Love Sean.

  • Diddy formed Combs Cartel as an umbrella company for the joint ventures of his children.

Sean "Diddy" Combs has long credited fatherhood with teaching him "patience" and "grace."

The rapper and entrepreneur has seven kids, whom he co-parents with Misa Hylton, Sarah Chapman, and Dana Tran. His ex-girlfriend Kim Porter died in 2018 from lobar pneumonia.

"I've been blessed to be taught and mentored by the mothers of my children," Combs told Teen Vogue the following year. "I've realized that in doing a lot of praying and asking for prayers and guidance, that it's going to take a village to surround us with that love and care."

Quincy was born to Porter and Albert Joseph Brown III (aka producer Al B. Sure!) in 1991. He is the namesake of musical legend Quincy Jones, who mentored his father.

Porter and Combs began their longtime on-and-off relationship in 1994. Combs adopted Porter's son when Quincy was still a toddler.

In 2018, Quincy published an open letter for GlobalGrind.com, in which he opened up about his adopted dad.

"Sean Combs, also known as 'Diddy,' has been a father figure in my life for as long as I can remember," he wrote. "He is the one who helped mold me into the person I am today and I will always try to live up to his expectations."

Quincy currently works as a singer, songwriter, and actor in "Power Book III: Raising Kanan" on Starz. He previously starred in the FOX musical hit "Star."

Combs dated Hylton, an accomplished stylist and fashion designer, in the early '90s. She gave birth to their son Justin in 1993.

The couple appeared in the music video for "Big Poppa" by The Notorious B.I.G., who was a close friend of Combs' before his death. Justin also appeared in the music video for Biggie's 1994 single "Juicy."

Today, Justin is busy creating his own work for Revolt TV, the network his father co-founded in 2013, as the executive producer behind the popular interview series "Respectfully, Justin."

Christian is continuing his family's musical legacy, performing under the name King Combs.

His 2022 single "Can't Stop Won't Stop" shares the same title as a 1998 hit by The LOX featuring Christian's father (who was going by Puff Daddy at the time).

He also joined Combs onstage at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards. The father-son duo teamed up for renditions of "Bad Boy for Life" and "Mo Money Mo Problems." They later dedicated their performance to Porter.

Sarah Chapman was a close friend of Combs' when she welcomed their daughter Chance in 2006. At the time, Combs was still dating Porter, who was also pregnant.

As an adult, Chance has pursued a career in fashion. She recently starred in a "Clueless"-inspired campaign for Glam-Aholic Lifestyle, a Black-owned luxury handbag brand alongside her twin sisters D'Lila Star and Jessie.

Porter also gave birth to twin daughters, D'Lila Star Combs and Jessie James Combs, in 2006.

Porter and Combs appeared on the cover of Essence together during her pregnancy with the twins. D'Lila Star and Jessie James were born five months after their older sister Chance.

The two girls have followed in their mother's glamorous footsteps. Along with Chance, they walked in a 2021 Dolce & Gabbana fashion show and aspire to become full-time models.

They also joined their father onstage at the 2023 VMAs, dancing during his performance of "I'll Be Missing You."

In 2022, Diddy announced the birth of his daughter Love Sean Combs.

"I'm so blessed to welcome my baby girl Love Sean Combs to the world," Combs announced on X (formerly Twitter) on December 10, 2022.

He added that his family members were thrilled about their newest addition.

"Mama Combs, Quincy, Justin, Christian, Chance, D'Lila, Jessie and myself all love you so much! God is the Greatest," he wrote.

Although Combs did not clarify the identity of Love Sean's mother, TMZ reported that her name is Dana Tran, a cyber security professional.
