MLB Legend and former Yankees star Reggie Jackson made a shocking admission about his love life during an interview with Howard Stern on SiriusXM Radio.
The New York Yankees Hall of Famer, known as Mr. October for his World Series heroics, admitted that he had a hard time staying loyal to women during his playing days. Jackson said would cheat on them regularly.
“It wasn’t hard for me to open my heart, but it was hard for me to be loyal,” Jackson told Stern. “As a man, I cheated a lot.”“I won’t blame it on any excuse,” Jackson explained. “I just cheated. I saw a pretty girl and I tried to sleep with her.”
The 76 year-old Jackson revealed he’s currently in a relationship with a woman he has known for more than three decades and said that he’ll “probably” marry her.
Jackson was married once and said he has a “wonderful” daughter, Kimberly. “I wasn’t married when I had her, but what an unbelievable experience. She’s given me two grandchildren, two boys and one of the kids, the poor son of a gun, he looks just like me,” he said.
Jackson hit 563 home runs in his career and won five World Series titles with the A’s and Yankees in the 1970s.
