Who are Willie Nelson’s children?
The singer and songwriter has as many as eight kids.
First Marriage and firstborns
Willie who was married to Martha Matthews for ten years between 1952 to 1962, shares three children, two girls, and one boy with her.
His eldest is a daughter named Lana Nelson, who has made a name for herself in the entertainment industry. Lana, 68, is an actress and costume designer who has worked on films like Red Headed Stranger in 1986 and King of Luck in 2011.
His second-born is Susie Nelson. The two who are very close even now, share a radio show. Willie and Susie, 65, can be heard on the singer’s Sirius XM channel, “Willie’s Roadhouse” for “Suzie’s Gospel Hour.”
Back in 1987, Susie also wrote a book, entitled Heart Warn Memories: A Daughter’s Personal Biography of Willie Nelson.
Willie and Martha’s third child is also their first son: Willie Hugh Nelson Jr. He is lovingly known as Billy. The star has recorded a gospel record that has the song My Body’s Just a Suitcase for my Soul featuring his dad.
However, Billy died, apparently by suicide on Christmas day of 1991.
Second Marriage and more kids
The 88-year-old crooner is loved by fans for his free-spirited attitude towards life. However, his free-spiritedness allegedly caused problems in his second marriage to rockabilly singer Shirley Collie.
Reports suggest that the singer had allegedly strayed from the marriage. The couple shared a daughter: Paula Nelson. Paula, 52, now works as a disc jockey and artist. She is the artist behind the song Have You Ever Seen the Rain from HBO’s “Big Little Lies.”

Third marriage and another child
Following the end of his second marriage, Willie married Connie Koepke, and the couple had Amy Nelson. The (now) 48 year old also shares her father’s musical talent.
Willie’s current marriage
It looks like the fourth time’s the charm, as the singer finally found long-lasting love in Annie D’Angelo. The pair married in 1991 and have two boys together: Lukas, 32 and Micah, 31.
Lukas was one of the writers and producers behind the soundtrack for the movie A Star is Born. He even played lead guitar for Bradley Cooper’s character.
Lukas also leads the band named Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real. Micah on the other hand plays with his brother and father.
The Secret child
In 2012, the singer revealed that he had recently discovered that he had another daughter that he did not know about.
“I have an old, dear friend Mary Haney, who I’d lost touch with but recently met again after decades,” Willie said. “Turns out Mary and I had a child together called Renee. It also turns out Renee has a daughter, Noelle, who has a daughter, Jordan, who I am happy to now call my great-granddaughter.”
