Martin & Coretta King’s 1st Grandchild

Well this is wonderful news. I’m very happy for them. Now the sleepless nights begin.

The first grandchild of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. & Mrs. Coretta Scott King was born Sunday, May 25, 2008 at Northside Hospital in Atlanta.

Parents, Martin III & Arndrea Waters King and new baby Yolanda Renee King named after her late Aunt, Yolanda Denise King.

  1. I read about a grandchild being on the way some months back before she was born. It seems that Martin III keep this relationship under wraps until after Mrs.King died. At the time Martin and the mother-to-be (a longtime girlfriend) weren’t married. It made me wonder if Mrs. King didn’t approve? He announced their marriage shortly after Coretta’s death. Anyway, I had always wondered why none of the King children ever married—nor were they ever linked to any relationships. Better late than never.
