Ike Jr and Michael are Ike’s kids from a previous relationship with Lorraine Taylor. Craig (1958-2018) was Tina’s eldest son she had at 18 years old with Raymond Hill, a saxophonist in Ike’s band the Kings of Rhythm. Raymond abandoned Tina when she was pregnant. Ike later adopted Craig and legally gave him his last name. Ronnie is Ike and Tina’s only child together born in 1960. She became pregnant with Ronnie while Ike’s common-law wife Lorraine was pregnant with Michael. Ike and Tina married in 1962.
