Parents, children and girlfriend of Anton Walkes
The only thing that is known about Walkes’ parents is that they were passionate football fans. Their names are not currently known to the general public.
When his club faced the San Jose Earthquakes in 2017, Walkes revealed to Tottenham Hotspur.com that his parents had been watching him play from his English home. They couldn’t sleep after their son’s big goal since they were up all night watching him score it.
With his fiancée Alexis, Walkes is the father of a small child named Ayla. His girlfriend’s last name is presently unavailable. While her DOB is unknown, she was aged between 20-25 years. Nothing else about her is known.
Before joining Atlanta United in the Major League Soccer (MLS), where he played for three seasons, Walkes played for Tottenham in the English Premier League and later for Portsmouth.
In 2022, Walkes joined Charlotte ahead of the team’s inaugural MLS campaign. This past season, he participated in 23 games, made 21 starts, and attempted five shots on goal. On Thursday, supporters of Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium started placing flowers in front of the east entrance.
