Denzel Washington's talented kids

Fans of the St. Louis Rams football team may see Denzel Washington in the stands next season! His 22-year old look-alike son John David recently became a rookie running back for the team. John David was a football star at Morehouse College, from which he just graduated with a degree in sociology. Denzel and his wife of 23 years, Pauletta, will see their oldest daughter leave the nest in the fall– 18-year old Katia is heading to Yale University! The Washington twins, 15-year olds Olivia and Malcolm, have strong interests as well– "Malcolm is an aspiring basketball player. He wants to go to North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Olivia is the artist and is into dancing," say their uncle, Woodson Pearson.

It’s unlikely that we’ll see photos of the kids clubbing in California any time soon– Denzel and Paulette encourage their kids to make their own way. "While John David was in college," his cousin notes, "he kept a job so he wouldn’t have to rely on his parents."
