Five Successful People Who Were Born A Love Child

Born Out Of WedlockA young mother and reader wrote to me today asking if there were any famous people who were born out of wedlock.  We’ve talked about this  in the past (not the illegitimate topic, you can find that from an article in January, 2011 (http://myfivebest.com/five-famous-people-who-thought-their-mother-was-their-sister/) but with a different twist.  This woman wanted to know some really famous people.  Since I’ve never had anyone ask me for a specific article, I thought I’d give it a try. Being born out of wedlock is not a 21st century invention.  Many famous and successful people have been born to parents who were not married when they were born.  Having two parents does not correlate to success and there is nothing wrong with a child who is raised by one parent or the other.  Here are five people who challenged public opinion and became very successful.  Incidentally, anyone who has a question is always more than welcome to request a specific article or answer to their questions.  You can email me at: info@myfivebest.com and I will respond to it.

BatmanThe Dark Knight is a part of our culture.  From the comic books to the Christopher Nolan movies, Batman is a favorite of children and adults alike.  He is a masked vigilante that does the things we  might fantasize about, but wouldn’t consider because of the consequences.  I think one of the biggest draws about Batman is that he is just a normal guy.  He didn’t come from outer space, he isn’t a mad scientist with futuristic weaponry, and he isn’t a mutant that can transform into something otherworldly.  He’s a guy.  A rich guy, yes, albeit, he could be you or me.  Searching the information banks, I’ve come up with five things you might not know about this caped crusader.  He’s a pretty complex guy and so were the people who created him.
