Michael Irvin Has Sixteen Siblings
Michael Irvin has sixteen siblings. He was born as one of the seventeen children of Walter and Pearl Irvin in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
His six brothers are Willie Pearl Irvin, Willie James Irvin, Walter Irvin, Jr., Ray Anthony Irvin, and twins Vaughn Richard Irvin and Don Raymond Irvin.
Michael had nine sisters: Alice Jean Irvin, Sheila Marie Irvin, Janet Lynn Irvin, Rosalind Rene Irvin, Sharon Delores Irvin, Laverne Denise Irvin, Lisa Michelle Irvin, Patricia Ann Irvin, and Brenda Elaine Irvin.
At his 30th birthday party, Michael was detained by police for possessing 10.3 grams of cocaine and drugs. He was on probation for four years and paid a $10,000 fine.
The former Cowboys wide receiver played football with his older brothers from a young age, and he has always been a talkative child, which has helped him greatly in his athletic and commentating career.
However, the Irvin clan didn't have a comfortable lifestyle as kids since they didn't have enough food and cool air in their house. Furthermore, the commentator would sneak to the kitchen after his brothers and sisters fell asleep to polish off a cereal box, and if the milk were missing, he would use tap water to soften the flakes.
