Bob Dylan has fathered six children

The 2016 Nobel Prize laureate Bob Dylan has fathered six children, including adopting his ex-wife's daughter.

The 76-year-old singer/songwriter married Sara Lownds in 1965 and although their relationship ended in 1977, the couple had four children together.

Jesse Byron was born in 1966, followed by Anna Lea a year later. Another son, Samuel Isaac, was born in 1968 and a year after him came Jakob Luke in 1969.

Dylan also adopted Maria, who was the daughter of Sara and her ex-husband Hans Lownds, and was born in 1961.

After their marriage broke down, the 'Blowing in the Wind' hitmaker went on to marry Carolyn Dennis in 1986 and he fathered his most recent biological daughter Desiree Gabrielle in 1986.
