Herschel Walker, speaking at a campaign stop in Wadley, Ga., on Thursday, did not address a report that he had paid for a woman’s abortion.

ATLANTA — A woman who has said Herschel Walker, the Republican Senate nominee in Georgia, paid for her abortion in 2009 told The New York Times that he urged her to terminate a second pregnancy two years later. They ended their relationship after she refused. :wow:

In a series of interviews, the woman said Mr. Walker had barely been involved in their now 10-year-old son’s life, offering little more than court-ordered child support and occasional gifts.

The woman disclosed the new details about her relationship with Mr. Walker, who has anchored his campaign on an appeal to social conservatives as an unwavering opponent of abortion even in cases of rape and incest, after the former football star publicly denied that he knew her. He called her “some alleged woman” in a radio interview on Thursday.

The Times is withholding the name of the woman, who insisted on anonymity to protect her son.

In the interviews, she described the frustration of watching Republicans rally around Mr. Walker, dismiss her account and bathe him in prayer and praise, calling him a good man.

She said she wanted Georgia voters to know what kind of man Mr. Walker was to her.
“As a father, he’s done nothing. He does exactly what the courts say, and that’s it,” she said. “He has to be held responsible, just like the rest of us. And if you’re going to run for office, you need to own your life.” :wow::picard:
The interviews and documents provided to The Times together corroborate and expand upon an account about her abortion first published on Monday in The Daily Beast. The Times also independently confirmed details with custody records filed in family court in New York and interviewed a friend of the woman to whom she had described the abortion and her eventual breakup with Mr. Walker as those events occurred.
Repeated messages left Friday afternoon with Mr. Walker’s spokesman and campaign manager were not returned.
The woman reaffirmed the key details of her account: She and Mr. Walker conceived a child in 2009 and decided not to continue the pregnancy. Mr. Walker was not married at the time. She provided to The Times a $575 receipt she was given after paying for the procedure at an Atlanta women’s clinic, and a deposit slip showing a copy of a $700 check that she said Mr. Walker gave her as reimbursement. She also shared a “get well” card with a handwritten message — “Pray you are feeling better” — and signed simply, “H.”
Mr. Walker has repeatedly denied her account, calling it a “flat-out” lie and the work of Democrats and the hostile news media. He has disputed that he signed the card. He told Fox News on Monday that he sends money “to a lot of people.”
“I know this is untrue. I know it’s untrue,” Mr. Walker said on the “Hugh Hewitt Show” on Thursday. “I know nothing about any woman having an abortion.”
Later on Thursday, he gathered reporters in a lumber yard 150 miles east of Atlanta for his first public event since the report first surfaced and read a statement that did not directly address it. Instead, he blamed his political opponents.
“You’re here because Democrats are desperate to hold onto power,” he said. “They are desperate to make this race about my family.”
Mr. Walker is running against Senator Raphael Warnock, a Democrat, in what is one of the year’s most expensive and competitive races as Republicans try to win control of the Senate.
Mr. Walker and his former girlfriend started their relationship around November 2008, according to her paternity suit. She said they first met in Atlanta, where she lived and Mr. Walker regularly visited. She would occasionally travel to the Dallas area, Mr. Walker’s home at the time.
The next year, when they conceived a child, the couple agreed that she should end the pregnancy, she said. Mr. Walker never expressed any moral or religious concerns about abortion, she said. He told her that it was “not a good time” for a baby.
The two continued their relationship and, two years later, the woman became pregnant again. This time, she said, she told Mr. Walker she wanted have the child. But Mr. Walker did not, and again made the case that the time was not right. The relationship ended on Sept. 16, 2011, according to her paternity suit. Her son was born the following May.

In an interview, a friend who lived in Atlanta at the time described consoling the woman through her morning sickness before her abortion and supporting her afterward. Years later, when the woman was pregnant again, she disclosed in phone and in-person conversations that Mr. Walker had asked her to end the pregnancy but she was adamant that she would not, according to the friend.
Mr. Walker also appears to have been involved with two other women around this time.:dead: In an interview in the December 2011 issue of Playboy magazine, he identified Julie Blanchard, who is now his wife, as his fiancée. And in January 2012, Myka Dean, then a shareholder along with her mother in Mr. Walker’s company Renaissance Man, according to financial records, filed a police report in Irving, Texas, in which she said that for 20 years she had been in an “on-off-on-off” relationship with Mr. Walker. (Ms. Dean, who died in 2019, told the police that Mr. Walker threatened her after she told him that she wanted to date other people. Mr. Walker denied the allegation through a spokeswoman in April.)
The woman interviewed by The Times said Mr. Walker never physically abused her.
In April 2013, the woman filed for child support in Manhattan when she was a graduate student at Columbia University and “struggling to make ends meet,” according to a statement from her lawyer at the time. Mr. Walker was initially ordered to make payments, first of $2,500 a month and later of $3,500 a month. The final order of child support was not issued until July 2014, according to court records. Mr. Walker has made his payments on time, the woman said.

Mr. Warnock has also been involved in a child custody dispute. His ex-wife sued in April to adjust the terms of their agreement and increase payments to account for the income he earns as a senator and as lead pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. A spokeswoman for the Warnock campaign declined to comment for this article.
The woman said Mr. Walker hardly knew his 10-year-old son — she said he had “maybe only seen him three times” — and had not spoken to her in years. She said she and Mr. Walker communicated only through Ms. Blanchard, who the woman said sometimes called her to ask her son’s size before sending gifts.
“And by ‘he,’ I mean ‘she’ sends him Christmas presents, birthday presents,” the woman said.
A Democrat, the woman said she had struggled to watch Mr. Walker campaign on public positions so clearly at odds with his private conduct.
Mr. Walker has said he supports abortion bans with no exceptions for rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.
“The fact that I had a choice — now he’s in the public trying to say he wants to put a ban on abortion completely,” the woman said, adding, “It appalled me.”
Mr. Walker also has assailed “absentee fathers,” particularly in the Black community. But the woman said Mr. Walker himself had been so uninvolved in her son’s life that his absence was a running joke between her and her family and friends.
The woman said she was given no advance notice about Mr. Walker’s Senate candidacy and was shocked when she learned he had entered the race.
Mr. Walker’s personal life has been a source of turmoil in his campaign. He talked often about a 22-year-old son, Christian Walker, in early campaign materials and appearances, but later acknowledged three more children he had not publicly mentioned, including the 10-year-old son, an adult daughter and another young son. (Christian Walker, a conservative social media star in his own right, began openly attacking his father after The Daily Beast’s report was published, accusing him and his Republican allies of hypocrisy.)
Mr. Walker disputed that he had not acknowledged his children. “I just chose not to use them as props to win a political campaign,” he said in a statement in June. “What parent would want their child involved in garbage, gutter politics like this?”
When those reports first appeared in June, the woman said, Ms. Blanchard asked her to publicly vouch for Mr. Walker’s on-time child support payments in an effort to make the case that Mr. Walker was a responsible father. The woman said she declined.

Herschel Walker’s Wife Reaches Out to His Abortion Accuser​

Herschel Walker has maintained that he still doesn’t know the identity of the woman claiming she had an abortion after she and Walker got pregnant in 2009. But on Friday afternoon, the woman finally heard from a top Walker campaign surrogate: Julie Blanchard, the candidate’s wife.

In text a message exchange shared with The Daily Beast, the woman—who says she later had a child with Walker against his wishes in 2012—told Blanchard it was “cruel” that Walker “continues to claim he doesn’t know me or the abortion he paid for.” :wow:


“He brought all of this on himself when he decided to get on a platform and denounce abortion and make a mockery of his children who have done NOTHING to deserve this,” wrote the woman.

“Shame on him,” she added.

The woman asked Blanchard if she had previously known about the abortion, or if she had known that Walker had also said it wasn’t the “right time” to get an abortion when they conceived another child three years later. (The woman went forward with the pregnancy despite Walker’s wishes.)

Instead of directly answering the woman’s question about the abortion, Blanchard wrote that “this makes me incredibly sad,” claiming she “continually tried to bridge a better relationship” between the estranged family members.

Provided to The Daily Beast​


Blanchard added that she “witnessed everyday Herschel pray for you and [your son] & everyone in our family.” She added that Walker calls and texts the child “regularly,” and feels “sadness” when he gets no response—to which the anonymous woman replied, “Are you kidding me?”

Blanchard, who for years has also served as a go-between messenger for Walker and the woman, replied at 1:19 pm EDT, according to the text message chain. An hour later, the campaign blasted out a fundraising text message calling the abortion allegation a “flat-out lie.”

The texts show that Blanchard initiated contact with the woman at 9:54 am on Friday to complain about this reporter investigating the existence of Walker’s children. Previously, their last text was on Aug. 30.

The woman also provided The Daily Beast with a detailed personal account of her life after having Walker’s child, shining a light on the nature of her son’s relationship with Walker—or, as she puts it, the lack thereof. She asked for anonymity out of concern for her family’s privacy and safety, but supported her claims with text messages, photographs, and court records.

Walker has not seen their son in person for more than six-and-a-half years, the woman said. The football legend has, by her count, met his son a total of three times, which she supported with photographs. Two of those instances were related to child support hearings.

Walker's campaign declined to comment for this story.

For an idea of how present Walker has been in their son’s life, the woman shared a series of screenshots of text messages from Walker to the boy’s iMessage account on his iPad.

The messages are incredibly revealing.

For instance, Walker never told the boy he had a half-brother until after The Daily Beast broke the news this June. :mindblown: The woman said she also didn’t know about the other son, :mindblown: which she expressed in a text message to Blanchard the day after the story published.

On July 7, the messages show—three days after Walker sent his son an Instagram photo from a July 4 campaign event—the boy asked his father if he had any other brothers or sisters he did not know about, in addition to adult son Christian Walker and a daughter Walker had previously disclosed to the boy.

Walker, who had confirmed the half-brother to The Daily Beast three weeks previously, lied to his son. “You have the brother and sister I told you about. Love you,” he wrote. :damn:

On Aug. 1, Walker sent his estranged son a photo of his half-brother, explaining, “This picture never went,” followed by the half-brother’s name.

That message is followed by four unanswered texts from Walker, all of them saying, “Love you.” Three of them were sent after midnight.

Walker sent that same “Love you” message to his son frequently, no matter how many times it went unanswered. Sometimes the child would write short notes back—inviting Walker to a baseball game, wishing him a Happy Easter, sending a photo of himself with gifts. The pace accelerated in 2021, when Walker was gearing up to announce his candidacy.

Between June 4 and June 12 of that year, the texts show, Walker sent seven “Love you” messages, and nothing else. The boy replied, “You to,” on June 13, after which Walker asked how he was doing. The boy invited his father to watch him play baseball, and Walker said he would like to see him play, but according to the woman, the last time Walker saw his son was January 2016. :picard:

Then, between July 1 and Oct. 11, the texts show, Walker sent his son 34 unanswered brief text messages. All but six say “Love you,” with the vast majority of them coming between midnight and 3:41 in the morning.


On the evening of Oct. 13, his son replied, “What’s my favorite color?What grade am I in?And how old am I” :mjcry:

Walker responded the next afternoon: “God bless you, love you” :dead:


Walker didn’t send another text message for more than a month, at which time he wrote: “Your dad loves you so much” on Nov. 21.

According to the woman and her lawyer, she dated Walker between November 2008 and September 2011. She ended the relationship after Walker urged her to terminate her second pregnancy, as The New York Times reported on Friday.

The woman noted that Walker has never missed any of his $3,500 monthly payments, an amount that has remained steady since their 2014 court order even though Walker’s financial disclosure filed in August shows a net worth between $29 million and $62 million.

“A lot of people would probably be surprised at the low amount that it is, but it was enough for me to take care of my son, and I was planning on working,” said the woman, who was a graduate student at Columbia University at the time. “Obviously, in New York that doesn’t go very far. But I wanted it to be fair and legal, so that neither of us would be upset about it.”

She said she had only received “sporadic” $1,000 payments from Walker before she sued for child support in 2013. The woman hadn’t planned to go to the courts, but wanted to work it out quietly with lawyers, which text messages corroborate.

At one point in texts from the time, Walker misunderstands this goal, writing, “this will be public when we have lawyers.” The woman assures him it won’t, saying she told her attorneys “both of us would like this as quiet as possible.”

She explained to The Daily Beast that she wanted privacy for both of them.

“Obviously he’s Herschel Walker,” she explained.

In another text exchange from the time, Walker told the woman to “calm down” while she was trying to arrange a meeting between their lawyers.

She replied, “I told you before I don’t want to argue with you-let the lawyers do that. I’m not upset, H-just would like this taken care of in a timely manner, and thus far, it hasn’t.” (“H” was a nickname for Walker, which the woman frequently used in texts with him. It’s also the letter that he signed on the “get well” card he sent her after the abortion, along with a $700 signed personal check.)

The messages stretch back to the day she gave birth to their son, when she sent Walker photos of the newborn.

“WOW how are you guys doing. I wish I was there, I am in Villahermosa Mexico,” Walker replied. “You ok ,your texts just came thur .When was he born.” :dahell:

She tells him, and Walker responds, “I am so sorry I was not there.” :wow:


“We waited and waited and waited,” the woman said of the early out-of-court stages of the child support dispute. “Eventually, I needed money to live and take care of my son, but there was no resolution. I gave him ample time to work it out privately, but he didn’t want to do that, so I ended up having to go to court.”

At the time, Walker, an outspoken Christian, had been balancing relationships with a number of other women. They include one who gave birth to another son in 2009, a woman who died in 2019, and Blanchard. The Daily Beast has spoken with another woman who confirmed she was also concurrently in a years-long relationship with Walker. :wow:

In 2010, Walker told talk radio host Howard Stern that he had only slept with two women. :troll:

The first time Walker met their son, she said, was the morning before Walker’s first in-person family court appearance. It was 2013, and the boy was a little over one year old.

Walker, she said, didn’t want to meet his son for the first time in a courtroom, so on the morning of the hearing, she brought the toddler to his hotel. She provided a photo of the moment. :scust:

But Walker didn’t show up for the hearing later that day, she recalled. A lawyer for the woman corroborated the claim.

The second time Walker met their son, a year later, he was in the courthouse for the final settlement hearing. The woman provided a photo of the encounter, which her lawyer also recalled. :hhh:

For the third and final meeting, in January 2016, Walker brought along Blanchard.

At the time, Walker was on a pre-planned trip to the area where the anonymous woman, unable to afford child care at the time, was living at home with one of her parents. :wow:

“I moved back home to take care of my son,”:sadcam:
she explained. She said she tried to work for several months after graduate school, but said she would have to take her son with her on business trips, and find a babysitter in whatever city she was in.

“And that was costing me more than I was making. So I ended up having to, you know, move back home,” said the woman, who has relocated with her son and built a successful professional career.

“And it was great that I got to stay home with him for a couple of years, but it also felt like a setback, moving in back home when I was thirty-something with a kid,” she recalled. She was able to “get back on her feet” and work once she got child support.

She received her first child support payment in August 2014, she said—the month the case was resolved in court, according to records shared with The Daily Beast.

“He never had to tell me how much money he made,” the woman said, explaining the size of what she acknowledges as her “fairly low” $3,500 monthly payment.

That amount was about $2,000 above the mandatory minimum, but it had not been adjudicated by the court; it was Walker’s offer. The woman said she had “essentially no income,” but her attorney warned that if she asked the court for more, “you could be seen as, you know, a woman trying to get more money from this famous celebrity athlete millionaire and actually end up with a lot less.”

In Jan. 2017, when the woman was still living with one of her parents, Walker asked if she wanted to buy a flight for herself and her son to meet him in Florida. When she told him she had booked the dates in a text message, Walker backed out.

“Tomorrow will be a bad time just got to base and the change times because of today,” Walker wrote in the text, claiming he was at a military base—a claim that three women said believed Walker sometimes used as an excuse to meet another woman.

Since that last January 2016 visit, the woman has repeatedly invited Walker back, she said, but he never took her up on the offer. Over the last year, her son, who is now 10, “put two and two together,” she said, and rejected the one form of regular communication Walker maintains: Christmas and birthday gifts.

“This year he asked his father to come visit, instead of sending boxes,” the woman told The Daily Beast. “But when Herschel didn’t come, and sent a box of gifts, [my son] put two and two together, and said he didn’t want them anymore.”

The woman said when they returned the box, it was soon mailed back to them. Her son didn’t accept the presents, she said.

In the new series of text messages on Friday, Blanchard appeared chiefly concerned about The Daily Beast’s previous reporting in June, labeling the child that the woman had with Walker a “secret son.”

“He has always talked about his children proudly,” Blanchard wrote, though there is no public record of Walker discussing three of his children, and he had denied the existence of two of them to his own campaign staff, The Daily Beast reported in July.

In fact, the woman told The Daily Beast, Walker had never even told the anonymous mother that he had a third son. She only found out that her son had a half-brother when she read The Daily Beast’s reporting, which Walker had already personally confirmed.:huhldup:

That half-brother was born in early 2009—the same year Walker paid for the abortion.

Asked about her feelings about Walker today, the woman said she didn’t have any hard feelings, because she didn’t have any feelings at all.

“I feel for my son. That’s it. Me, personally? He’s chosen not to be a father. That’s his prerogative. I wish him well,” she said.

“I wish he would’ve stayed the wonderful football legend people thought he was, so he wasn’t an embarrassment to his son,” she added. “Now I guess they know the real him.”

Texts show family strife between Herschel Walker's wife and woman who alleged he paid for her abortion​

“I’m not saying she did or didn’t have one [an abortion],” Walker told NBC News. “I’m saying I don’t know anything about that. I don’t know.”​

Oct. 7, 2022, 9:05 PM EDT
Georgia GOP Senate nominee Herschel Walker at a campaign stop in Wadley

Herschel Walker, the Republican nominee for Senate in Georgia, claims he confirmed for the first time Friday the identity of the woman who claimed he paid for her abortion 13 years ago when she leveled the allegation in a text message to his wife.

In a brief interview with NBC News, Herschel Walker said this was also the first time the woman, who is the mother of one of his four children, mentioned to him or his wife that she had had an abortion.

“Did you know Herschel paid for my abortion the first time? Or that he told me it wasn’t the ‘right time’ to have [a their current child]?” the woman wrote in a 9:54 a.m. text message sent Friday to Herschel Walker’s wife, Julie Walker.

In response, Julie Walker acknowledged that she tried to be a mediator between Herschel Walker and the woman, who seldom corresponded directly with her son’s father.

“This message makes me incredibly sad. You know I have continually tried to bridge a better relationship between you and Herschel putting [the child] first,” Julie Walker wrote to the woman, who did not return messages to NBC News requesting comment.

The Walker campaign provided copies of the text message exchange to NBC News hours before The New York Times published an interview with the woman, who alleged that Walker paid for the 2009 abortion and tried to pressure her to abort their young son. NBC News is withholding the woman and child’s names to protect their identities.

Part of a text exchange between Julie Walker and the woman who has alleged Herschel Walker, the GOP candidate for Senate in Georgia, paid for an abortion she had during their past relationship.

“The first I knew about any of this was when some reporter asked me about an abortion. And I’m like, ‘No, that’s a lie.’ And then I was asked if I paid for an abortion, and I said No. I did not pay for an abortion,” said Herschel Walker. “I’m not saying she did or didn’t have one [an abortion]. I’m saying I don’t know anything about that. I don’t know.”

Herschel Walker, who often limits interviews to conservative news outlets, added that “I have nothing to hide. That’s why I’m talking to you.”

The messages his campaign provided between the woman and Julie Walker dated back to May 2022.

The messages provide a raw glimpse into the corrosive effects of a political campaign on a family whose relationships became increasingly tense as details about the former football star’s personal life were reported, from the four children he had with four different women to violent episodes in his past.

The woman’s claim, first reported Monday by The Daily Beast, rocked Walker’s campaign and left top Republicans wondering if he could survive the allegation, which called into question the conservative credentials of a candidate who maintains he’s devoutly anti-abortion.

Herschel Walker’s oldest son, social media influencer Christian Walker, then denounced his father as a liar and hypocrite and criticized him for having multiple children.

Earlier in the campaign, Christian Walker appeared to support his father and joined him during at least one event.

According to the text messages, the woman also expressed early support for Herschel Walker’s campaign, especially in the runup to the May 24 GOP primary, when Walker first began running as an anti-abortion conservative.

“He’ll do great & you will keep him focused! Proud of you guys!” the woman wrote to Julie Walker on the day of the primary election. “Wishing nothing but the best for you tonight!!!”

The night after Herschel Walker’s win, the woman texted again: “Congratulations!!!”

The messages between the two women — which once were peppered with friendly chatter about the boy’s overnight camp or waning interest in Pokemon — grew increasingly tense as the woman began fielding calls from reporters about Herschel Walker’s children with different women.

After the primary, the woman warned Julie Walker that she had been contacted by a reporter and asked Julie Walker if she should tell the press that the candidate“complies 100% with the child support agreement.”

Days later, on June 15, Julie Walker shared a series of suggestions with the woman about how she could respond to press inquiries. Those messages came a day after the Daily Beast published a story about one of Herschel Walker’s previously publicly unacknowledged children.

The woman replied on July 7 when she asked, “Any more surprises we should know about?” It appeared to be a veiled reference to two Daily Beast articles reporting that Walker had two additional previously publicly unacknowledged children and that he lied to campaign staff about it. In a statement to the Daily Beast in response to the report about the additional children, Walker said, “I have four children. Three sons and a daughter. They’re not ‘undisclosed’—they’re my kids.”

He added that he has simply chosen “not to use them as props to win a political campaign. What parent would want their child involved in garbage, gutter politics like this?” Walker’s campaign declined to comment to the Daily Beast on the report about lying to his staff, and his campaign manager criticized the report as “pure gossip.”

In the Friday text message exchanges between the two, the woman explained that she did not know about another of Walker children, saying that boy “was a surprise to us all” in the rest of the family.

Julie Walker said in an interview that the paternity stories about Walker “pitted people against each other” in the family.

The woman showed to The New York Times and the Daily Beast a copy of a $575 receipt from an Atlanta abortion clinic that she said was given to her after her 2009 procedure, and she showed the outlets a copy of a $700 check that she said was a reimbursement check from Walker. In addition, she provided the outlets a copy of a “get well” card bearing a handwritten message signed “H” along with the message: “Pray you are feeling better.”

Both outlets reported they corroborated details of the woman’s abortion accusation with a close friend who supported and consoled her during both pregnancies and after her first abortion.

Walker told NBC News he doesn’t remember sending the card or check.

“I don’t remember any card or check or anything. But I was dating her. I could have sent some money. I could have sent a card. But not for the reasons she is saying,” he said.

The New York Times also interviewed a friend of the woman who said she took care of the woman after her 2009 abortion and then supported her through her pregnancy two years later.

The woman told her that Walker wanted her to abort the child she ultimately kept, The Times reported, which Walker also denied.

Walker’s profession of strict anti-abortion views were too much for the mother involved in the text exchange to bear, she told The New York Times, saying that she’s a Democrat and “the fact that I had a choice — now he’s in the public trying to say he wants to put a ban on abortion completely…It appalled me.”

But Walker said the woman knew “I’m a Christian,” while also acknowledging the longstanding tensions between them.

“She has been angry at me for years and it is very difficult. She’s a big, big advocate for abortion rights; she’s said that,” he said.

Julie Walker didn’t question her motives, and instead said that “I’m sad. I’m taken totally back. I want Herschel to have a relationship with his kid and now this is just tough.”
