Givens shares her younger biracial son William Givens Jensen with her partner, Murphy Jensen. While her older son, Michael, was adopted in 1993.

William was dressed in a casual shirt, ripped jeans, a knockabout jacket, and shoes. He posed with a charming smile. Givens captioned the shot:

"That’s my boy …Happy Birthday @billygivensjensen🎊🎉🎂🎈You are such a gift and blessing to us all! I Thank God every day for you!!! #grateful🙏🏽❤️."



Once upon a time, Givens was the most hated woman in America because of her romantic involvement with boxing legend Mike Tyson.

The pair were married for nearly a year before proceeding to court in 1989 for a dual divorce. Before their final court case, they engaged in a lengthy and messy episode characterized by claims from both parties.

Tyson said that his ex-wife tricked him into marriage after faking a pregnancy, wanted his money, and was unfaithful, while the actress revealed that during their union, he was physically violent.


Givens' claims were not warmly received by fans who branded her a gold digger; in the end, she got through the situation with the help of her former lover, Brad Pitt, and her faith.

On the other hand, the boxing legend's accusations were met with a $125 million libel suit, as the actress sued him after she confirmed that his words against her were false.



Years later, the Givens and her ex-husband ran into each other at an event and surprisingly hugged after Tyson tendered a sincere apology.

Givens has since run a busy schedule with reputable production companies and is enjoying her time as a mother to two adult boys, who want her to spend more time on herself than them.
