Sting has had a successful career in the music scene, yet his first priority always remained to be his wife of 27 years and six children.

Every parent has their own parenting styles when it comes to raising children, and for Sting, they have to make their own money. The singer and his wife, Trudie Styler, have been a tag team in raising their kids. Here's a look at their lives.

TRUDIE STYLER

Styler and Sting have been together for 37 years, 27 of which as husband and wife. The former Police frontman shared about their relationship:

“People say to me, ‘How has it lasted this long?’ I say, ‘Well, it’s kind of a miracle, but we don’t take it for granted.’ We’re friends, We love each other, but we actually like each other —and that’s an important distinction there.”

The couple tied the knot in 1992 and had four children: Mickey, Jakes, Eliot, and Giacomo. Sting also has two children, Joseph and Fuchsia, from his first wife, Frances Tomelt.

As a father, although wealthy, Sting makes sure his children know the value of money. He once shared with the Daily Mail:

“I told them there won’t be much money left because we are spending it! We have a lot of commitments. What comes in we spend, and there isn’t much left. I certainly don’t want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks. They have to work.”

BRIGITTE MICHAEL “MICKEY” SUNMER

Mickey is the first child of Sting and Styler, and like her sister, became an actress, appearing in the films “Frances Ha,” “Battle of the Sexes,” and “American Made,” alongside Tom Cruise.

Because her parents didn’t raise her with a silver spoon, Mickey had to model to earn money for art school. In 2017, she married Chris Kantrowitz in a ceremony held in Tuscany.

JAKE SUMNER

Jake Sumner is both a model and director who worked with some of the biggest stars, such as Bruno Mars and Damien Marley.
