Known for his blockbuster films, Keanu Reeves is a role model for aspiring actors and young men. If not about his movies, headlines about him focus on his kind heart or wise insights.

Although his over three-decade career was plagued with success, his personal life came with a few tragedies. Nevertheless, Reeves remains a good man towards others.

The actor does not have his own family to share his good heart and love. However, he did admit to liking his "Speed" co-star, Sandra Bullock, in the past. Unfortunately, their relationship never progressed to anything more than being friends.

Despite having no family, one TikTok content creator started a stir online after claiming to be the "Matrix" star's son.

Sadly, their daughter, Ava, was stillborn on Christmas Eve the following year, while Syme was in her eighth month of pregnancy. The tragedy brought grief to the couple, which eventually led to their separation.

He mainly grew up in Oregon, where he reportedly became a tattoo apprentice at 18 years old. Aside from his craft, Tyler shares humorous content on his TikTok account that gets him thousands of viewers.

However, he gained more fame after posting videos that claimed Reeves was his father. "When you get a great personality because your dad is Keanu Reeves and your good looks because your mom is a famous model," he wrote in one post.

In another TikTok video, he shared what it was like growing up as the son of a famous Hollywood star. He said:

"I got a lot of cash. I don't mind spending it."

Tyler also shared a photo with Reeves during an alleged charity event in Los Angeles. Although his series of posts have no truth to it, some of his viewers began wondering if Tyler was really Reeves' son.

Some of his fans note on his posts that the "John Wick" star has no children. However, he continuously tries to prove them wrong.

Tyler's entire TikTok content is based on fictitious stories, which he does not deny. In fact, the social media star already wrote the disclaimer in his TikTok bio, "JOKES/SATIRE."

Keanu Reeves Lost His Daughter

Although Tyler isn't really Reeves' son, the actor was once on his way to becoming a father. In 1998, Keanu Reeves met his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Syme, and conceived a child.

Sadly, their daughter, Ava, was stillborn on Christmas Eve the following year, while Syme was in her eighth month of pregnancy. The tragedy brought grief to the couple, which eventually led to their separation.

Two years later, a still devastated Reeves was heartbroken yet again to learn that Syme had passed away in a car accident.

The death of those close to him plagued Reeves' life for years. The actor also lost two loved ones in the past, including his sister, Kim Reeves, who passed away from cancer, and his best friend, River Phoenix, who died after taking a mixture of illegal substances.

Reeves has kept his personal life private for many years. However, he proudly walked the 2022 MOCA Gala red carpet with his girlfriend, Alexandra Grant. The couple made their relationship known when they first had their public debut at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in November 2019.
