How Is Blanket's Life Today?

In 2021, Blanket made a rare appearance on TV and revealed what he was up to in life. The 21-year-old, whose full name is Prince Michael Jackson II, said he was passionate about environmentalism and urged people to be vocal about climate change.

He was born on February 21, 2002, via surrogate; however, the surrogate's identity is still unknown. According to reports, Blanket is the third child of the King of Pop and the only biological child. Michael shared his other two children with Debbie Rowe, who denied being the 21-year-old's biological mother after the media speculated about his conception.

But, according to Mirror, the surrogate is a Mexican nurse named Helena, who was specifically selected by Michael. Helena was reportedly just the carrier and a different egg donor was chosen, making her the biological mother.

Blanket made this statement at his brother Prince's Thriller Night Halloween Party in California. The event was held at the sibling's home to raise funds for The Heal Los Angeles Foundation.
