Malachi Jakes grew up in a religious family as he is the son of the famous author Sarah Jakes Roberts. Besides being a New York Times best-selling author, she is also a pastor and spends a lot of her time preaching about the teachings of Jesus.

The oldest son of Roberts, Malachi Xander Jakes was born on August 21, 2002, meaning he is a Leo. Like his mother, he is also a writer and is trying to make a name for himself in the same field. Apart from writing, he is also involved in music.

Malachi Jakes: Love Life and Relationships

It looks like Malachi Jakes hasn't yet settled down. Malachi is only in his twenties, so it shouldn't come as a surprise. People at that age tend to have a lot of energy and ambitions. So there is a chance that he is probably not focused on finding love right now.

Malachi is reserved and doesn't give away much about his life. Also, if you go through his Instagram page, there isn't much to see apart from a few pictures, and almost all of them are just about himself. 

What Is Malachi Jakes's Popular Mom's Net Worth?

Malachi Jakes is still a young man trying to make a name for himself as a writer. But his mother, Sarah Jakes Roberts, is an established author with a net worth of $18 Million. Her books are hugely popular, and a significant portion of her wealth comprises book sales.

Roberts is also the founder of Women Evolve, which helps improve women's lives. They also have a clothing store called Shop Women Evolve, and its sales contribute to her wealth.

Sarah Jakes Roberts's son Malachi's love for writing has turned him into a blogger, as he has his blog titled Moments in Mind with Malachi. But, it hasn't been disclosed how much revenue he has made from it.

Malachi Jakes: Body Measurements 

Malachi Jakes has tried his hands on many things, but very few know he has also been involved in modeling works. Being a model is no child's play, which gives us an idea about his physicality.

Models tend to be tall, and if that's your assumption about Malachi, then you are correct. According to Backstage, Malachi stands at 6 Feet 4 Inches (193 cm). His height is complimented by his slim body, which weighs 175 lbs (80 kg).

Sarah Jakes Roberts Was Pregnant With Malachi Jakes At Just Fourteen

Malachi Jakes's mother, Sarah Jakes Roberts, was lucky that his mother could turn her life around. Sarah overcame what could have ruined her life forever. 

Roberts was pregnant with Malachi when she was only fourteen years old. She has talked about experiencing motherhood at such a young age, revealing that things weren't easy. 

Sarah said it to her fans on Facebook, where she wrote:

I was doing the best with my son at just 14 years old. So many insecurities behind that smile. So many promises in that young soul. It would take some time before I awakened to my potential. It's been a hard journey, but one I wouldn't trade for the world. I love the woman I've become and the scars that brought me to this place. Thankful for these two angels who never made me feel less than.

What made it even worse for Roberts is that she comes from a religious family. And, there wasn't just any ordinary family as she is the daughter of the famous Bishop T.D Jakes. He was shocked to learn about her daughter's pregnancy news, which isn't surprising. The identity of the father remains to be discovered. 

Malachi Jakes: Education Background

It seems like Malachi has taken a lot of inspiration from his mom and grandpa. Not only is he involved in the writing, but he also wants to be involved in movies, something his grandfather Jakes has done.

Malachi, besides writing, is also getting his hands into acting. As that's what his education tells us. He is learning cinema through the Colorado School of Acting. Previously, he studied at Rock Canyon High School. 

Malachi Jakes Is The Grandson of Bishop T.D. Jakes

T.D. Jakes is one of the biggest names for religious people in America. The famous bishop was born in South Charleston, West Virginia, on June 9, 1957, and is also involved in filmmaking.

Sarita Jakes's husband, Jakes, is the founder of the famous Potter House. The Dallas-located church is one of the biggest in the world and is attended by many Christians. Jakes is the senior pastor of the church.

Malachi Jakes Has Five Siblings

Malachi Jakes may be the oldest, but he certainly is not the only kid Roberts had. She had been pregnant on two separate occasions, with Makenzie Henson and Ella Roberts being her biological child. She is also the stepmother of Isiah Roberts, Teya Roberts, and Ren Taylor Roberts.

Her daughter Makenzie was born on August 14, 2009, and she had her when she married Robert Henson. Ella is her other biological child, born in 2016, and she had him with her husband, Touré Roberts.

All her other kids, Isiah, Teya, and Ren, came from Touré previous marriage to Lori Roberts. Isiah and Malachi were born in the same month, and it might just be a little coincidence to you but not to her mother, who had this to say regarding it. 

When Malachi turned about 5 years old he started asking me for a twin brother. He was too young to understand that it would be impossible. I’d nod my head and tell him there was no way that could happen. Then in 2014 I fell in love with Touré Roberts who had a son the same age and born in the same month of my son. What I thought was a childish desire from my son was actually a prophecy for a boy named Isaiah who’d become my son.

Malachi's Mother Has Been Married Twice

Malachi Jakes was born due to an accidental pregnancy, and his father's identity remains unknown. But he has a stepfather, and he had one before, thanks to her mother's two marriages.

His mother, Sarah Jakes Roberts, has been married to Pastor Touré Roberts since 2014. In November, the two exchanged wedding vows and met through a mutual friend. The pair has been going strong since.

But she has tried her luck in marriage before with her marriage to Robert Henson. The two tied the knot in 2008 and ended their married journey in 2012. Sarah was only 19 years old when she became Henson's wife, and her daughter Makenzie was born when she was only 20.

Malachi's Mental Health Has Suffered In The Past

Not everyone well-off lives a peaceful life, and that statement has been proven true for many people, including Malachi. Although growing up in a well-off family with a mother that loves him to death, he hasn't always been at peace with himself.

The good thing is that he has recovered from it and doing much better in his life. He let everyone know about it through his Instagram, where he wrote:

The journey of my mental health is just that: a journey! A long road that I am yet traveling. And I don’t think I’m near the end; I’m not even sure there is one. But for the first time in a while, I feel brave enough to continue on the road and am so very optimistic for the future that lays before me as I strive to continue to want better for myself.
