In the album Because The Internet, Donald Glover talks about being born rich, but his parents, Beverly, and Donald Glover Sr., aren’t wealthy but rather rich in kindness, as they were foster parents.

Thanks to his Jehovah’s Witnesses parents, the multi-faceted actor Donald Glover grew up in a home filled with many, each with their own life story.

Talking to the Hollywood Reporter, he once said, “I saw kids dying of AIDS in our house,” and then added he wants to build his own world to make it a little safer.

Moreover, it appears that born rich lyrics in the song Sweatpants were satire to his haters who stereotyped him as a ‘silver spoon coon.’

Donald’s parents instilled compassion and caring behavior in him from a young age!

The Star Wars actor Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, was born on September 25, 1983, to his parents Beverly and Donald Glover Sr.

He grew up in Stone Mountain, Georgia, alongside his two siblings: Brother Stephan and sister Brianne. Besides them, he also has two adopted siblings.

If you are an avid fan of Donald Glover, you must have seen his mother, Beverly, in the show Mr. & Mrs. Smith. In the show, Beverly played the role of Donald’s character, John’s mother.

According to various sources, she used to be a daycare provider. Meanwhile, his father, Donald Glover Sr., was a postal worker.

thank you, mr. glover.

In the show Conan, Donald revealed that his parents were hesitant about his career shift from acting to rapping. His words were, “My mom was really kinda just like, you know, ‘You have a good job! Why would you do that?.”

Unfortunately, in December 2018, Donald Glover announced to fans that he lost his father in a ‘This Is America’ tour concert.

The Glover couple raised him as Jehovah’s Witnesses while passing down their core values and compassion for others.

His mother had forbidden every television channel except for PBS and made them watch Mississippi Burning. However, his father used to let them sneak and watch Bugs Bunny cartoons.

Moreover, as his parents provided a home for many foster children and even adopted two of them, their life story humbled Donald at an early age.
