LaKeith Stanfield is a private guy and wanted the same for his kids. In early 2023, after Tylor Hurd shared the bombshell news that she had given birth to the “Haunted Mansion” actor’s second child, Stanfield came in hot with a response, per ET. He replied to Hurd’s post, saying, “Thanks for respecting my not wanting to blast my child out to the internet. Very considerate of you.” Stanfield’s comment sparked a back-and-forth feud between the two as Hurd called out Stanfield for supposedly lying about having another child. She wrote, “Value your privacy is why you lied to people saying she wasn’t your baby or that I was just a random? You value your privacy but your gf post everything y’all do lol okay.” The conversation got heated, but Stanfield stood his ground and claimed he never denied that the baby was his.
Privacy has always been a big deal when it comes to Stanfield’s personal life, especially his kids. In July 2023, he even announced that he and his now-wife, Kasmere Trice, secretly welcomed the actor’s third child, per People. Even with his new addition, Stanfield wanted to keep things under wraps. He shared, “We decided early on we wanted to protect our baby as much as we can for as long as possible.” This seems to be a common theme with the actor, although it didn’t sit well with his ex-fling, Hurd.
