Gary Vaynerchuk Wants His Kids to Make Their Decisions
Five-time New York Times bestseller Gary Vaynerchuk is a family man with two children: daughter Misha Vaynerchuk and son Xander Vaynerchuk he had from his relationship with his estranged wife, Lizzie Vaynerchuk.
The Belarusian-American entrepreneur has always remained private about his little kids. He has barely shared any pictures of them.
Even his separated wife, Lizzie, has followed suit.
However, Gary has revealed the reason he has rarely been seen with his kids in public places.
Back in 2015, the 47-year-old author published a blog titled 'BEFORE YOU QUESTION MY WORK/LIFE BALANCE, READ THIS' on his website.
Gary stated that he and Lizzie had decided not to disclose much about their kids in public through the blog. He added he would like to keep his children behind the curtains until they decide to come out in public by themselves.
"I would prefer to keep that part of my life private until they can decide," he wrote. "But it was my personal choice to make sure this part of my career, the public image, didn’t bring them into the limelight without it being their choice first."
Going by his statements, it seems that he is a doting and thoughtful father who does not like to make decisions about his children’s lives by himself only.
