Asafa Powell Children
Powell has garnered much notability due to his fatherly persona and stories about his children.
He has four kids, two from past relationships and two from his marriage. All the youngsters play a significant role in his life, and he is proud of his family.
While things have not been easy for him caring for his kids and dealing with their birth givers, Asafa has found a stronghold as a patriarch.
The eldest child of the 100m Jamaican pride is Avani Powell. She is the only daughter of her father and has three younger brothers.
Avani was born to her mother, Amita Persaud-Webb, a former acquaintance of Asafa. The 10-year-old celebrates her birthday on October 21 each year, and her dad remembers to wish her a special day.
As the only princess of her sprinting Powell clan, she remains a loving figure among her three kid bruvs.
However, things did not turn out well in 2021 when the Olympics gold medalist was accused of being a "deadbeat dad." Amita had called out the father of four to the Kingston Family Court for not paying child support for her daughter.
Addressing the issue and public criticism, this world champion asked for proof of paternity of Avani.
While he forwarded his side of the story behind his refusal to pay $25,000 a month of child support for the little one, his bond with her has not changed. He noted that his baby mama is allegedly verbally abusive towards his family while staying at his mother's house.
Despite many issues, the father-daughter duo continues to see each other and go out on ice cream dates. Moreover, Avani also makes time to play with her baby brothers, as seen on her dad's Instagram posts.
She has another baby sister, born to her single mother. Her birth mother is a media person, having interviewed notable figures like Popcaan, Spice, Beenie Man, and Tarrus Riley.
Little Aavani and her young sibling Aasmi have taken over Instagram with their glamorous pictures. Powell's baby girl also has her own Instagram, run by her caretakers.
The eldest son, Liam, was born in 2013 and celebrates his special day on July 26 each year. While the news of his birth remained away from the public for a long time, Powell confirmed his son's existence three years later on 2016's Valentine's Day.
He had posted a picture of Liam and Avani holding hands on his Facebook, calling himself a proud dad.
The nine-year-old, too, sticks by his father's side most of the time. Meanwhile, the Commonwealth Games champion is okay without revealing his son's biological mother.
Liam is also a charming young man, enjoying the company of his elder sister and younger brothers.
After his marriage to Alyshia, the couple gave birth to their eldest child, a son named Amieke Powell, on October 8, 2019.
As the first child, Mrs. Powell was excited to let the world know about the arrival of her son, calling him "My baby boy" and
"My sugar dumpling."
The young lad is growing healthily and happily in Jamaica alongside his siblings. As a three-year-old, he eagerly looks forward to his kindergarten days.
His playing video with his sister in one of their father's Instagram posts in 2020 had gone well with the family's fans and well-wishers. Likewise, his social media accounts, mainly his YouTube channel, are run by his parents.
The channel showcases his upbringing as a toddler since his birth, captured by his loved ones.
Azhaf is the youngest member of the Powell family born on September 15, 2021.
Also called Zhaf Zhaf, the one-year-old is surrounded by his parents and siblings' unconditional love.
The little one debuted on his dad's social media in January 2022. A January 5 Instagram picture of Asafa holding him was well-received by the netizens.
Before his birth, Alyshia had proudly flaunted her baby bump on the internet and at social events. He continues to make appearances on his mom and dad's respective social media and has already won many hearts due to his cuteness.
