Harry Kane and his only sibling, Charlie Kane, were born to parents Kim and Patrick Kane. He is of mixed ethnicity, as his parents come from different family backgrounds.

His dad, Patrick Kane, is from Galway, Ireland, so he has Irish ancestry from his paternal side. And his mother, Kim Kane, is English.

Kane's grandfather from his father's side, Michael John Kane, came from Letterfrack in Galway. After his passing, he was buried in the local cemetery in his native Letterfrack. Some of his cousins are well-known traditional Irish musicians.

Patrick and his family moved to Chingford, where Harry attended Larkswood Primary Academy until 2004. He went to the same school David Beckham attended, Chingford Foundation School, and played football from an early age.

He belongs to an athletic family thanks to his mother, Kim Kane. His maternal grandfather played semi-professional football in the 1960s. Thus, the athlete isn't the first to pursue his love for sports from the family. 

Harry Kane Parents: Meet Patrick And Kim Kane

Harry Kane was born to his parents, Kim and Patrick Kane, on the 28th of July 1993 in Walthamstow, London.

Patrick and Kim Kane married in London in 1986. After seven years of spending their lives as a husband and wife, they welcomed the future soccer star, Harry. The elder Kanes are very proud of their son's achievement.

The footballer couldn't have made it to where he stands today without his parent's unconditional love and consistent support. They raised him into a great person on and off the field, and his upbringing immensely helped his sportsmanship.

Harry Kane's Sporting Gene Comes From His Mother's Side Of The Family

Harry Kane believes he inherited his sporting genes from his mother. More specifically, his maternal grandfather, as his grandfather Eric Edward Hogg was quite the footballer. 

Harry may have been named after his mother's grandfather, Harry.

Eric, the youngest of eight siblings, had five football-obsessed brothers, and the eldest, Harry, got the family into the game. Harry set up a youth team during the Second World War in Islington, North London.

Furthermore, Hogg played at a semi-pro level in the 1960s for Blundell Rovers and later for Brentwood and Warley. His maternal family also saw Eric in how their football star moves.

When the late semi-professional footballer visited his new grandson in the hospital and heard his name, he predicted that the newborn would either be a gangster or a brilliant footballer. Kane didn't disappoint his granddad and became one of the best strikers in the world.

However, his dad doesn't like him saying he got his sporting ability from his maternal family, and whenever the topic lands, it becomes a hot debate in the Kane household.

The older Kane is also the director of The Harry Kane Company and manages his brother to reach the heights he deserves. The director is very busy with his work, so he has maintained a low profile in the media.

He has maintained a private account on Instagram, @charlie_kane123, and has shared his lifestyle with his close friends and family, not the general public. He makes a rare appearance on his brother's Instagram.

Harry Kane Has Blessed His Parents With Three Grandchildren
