What Happened to Toby Keith’s Son

Stelen Keith Covel is Toby Keith’s son, who has been a victim of a celebrity death hoax after it was claimed that he passed away following a car crash. The 27 year old born in 1997 is a businessman and manager, among other things.

While his father gained fame as a country music singer, songwriter, and actor, Stelen has only managed a spot in the limelight thanks to his relationship with his father. Beyond that, he has made a name for himself in business. Here is all there is to know about him.

Who is Toby Keith’s Son, Stelen Keith Covel?

Stelen Keith Covel was born in 1997 as the youngest of the three kids of his parents, Toby Keith and Triciia Lucia. Now 27 years old, he was born 13 years after his parents got married.

Stelen is of American ethnicity, white race, and mixed ethnicity. While the roots of his mother are not revealed, he is of English, German, Irish, and Scottish​​ roots from his father’s side of the family.

Although his parents met when his father was only 20 and his mom was 19, and the couple got married when they were still very young, at only 23 and 22, they still had a very stable family. It is thanks to this that the childhood of Toby Keith’s son was very stable, and he was raised alongside his two older sisters.

He was an active kid when he was growing up. Hence, rather than being drawn to music like his father, he fell in love with athletics. Stelen was drawn to American football in his early days but did not come to make a career out of it.

He got his education from Casady School, and from there, he went to the University of Oklahoma, where he graduated in 2020 with a Bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship and Venture Management.

What Happened To Stelen Keith Covel?

Nothing has happened to Toby Keith’s son of late, even though he was a victim of a celebrity death hoax in the past. This happened in the early 2000s when he was still a little child. At the time, a report came forth that he died.

The report claimed that the death of Stelen was following a car crash, which he suffered. The hoax regarding his death came after his grandfather was killed in a car collision in March 2001.

Obviously, the news turned out to be fake, and many years later, he is very much alive and doing well for himself. For the better part, the celebrity kid has kept himself away from any form of controversies and the media.

What Does Toby Keith’s Son Do?

Toby Keith’s son has not taken after his father in the entertainment business, but he has achieved so much for himself. Initially, he started out playing football when he was in high school. In 2012 when he was a state football player, Stelen Keith was named as one of the players to play for the US Under-15 team for the 2013 Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl against the Canadian team.

He continued to play for a while before switching to other things that had now filled his hands, most especially in the business scenery. A real estate investor and businessman, he has been into both the commercial and residential sectors of real estate.

After he was done with his education, Stelen took a job as a business consultant with TOKECO. In 2020, he founded his first known business, 405 Burger Bar. Apart from that, he also owns the restaurant and bar Hollywood Corners. He is also a director with the restaurant which he co-founded in 2021 in Oklahoma.

In 2023, he also co-founded Tequila Chulos and serves as a director. In that same year, he also co-founded Sellout Crowd.

He is Not The Only Child of His Father

Stelen Keith is not the only child of his father. He has two older sisters, Shelley Covel Rowland and Krystal Keith. The oldest child of the family is Shelley, who is Stelen’s step-sister. She was born to Tricia Lucus from a previous relationship before she met and married Toby Keith.

Shelley was born in 1980 and is now 44 years old as of 2024. She was still a little girl of 4 years old, when her parents got married, and it was after this that she was adopted by Keith.

Stelen’s parents welcomed their first child as a couple when they had Krystal Keith in 1985. Now 39 years old, Krystal is a talented musician who has followed in the footsteps of her father.

Needless to say, even though his family is blended, Stelen enjoys a great relationship with his older siblings as well as with both his parents. The family has become very famous for supporting each other.

Toby Keith’s Son is Married to Haley Covel

Looking at his personal life, Stelen Keith Covel is a married man who tied the knot with his wife, Haley Covel. The couple got married on November 7, 2021, and although they are very close, they are still yet to have any kids 2 years after walking down the aisle.

Haley Covel was born on February 20, 1997, which means she is now 27 years old and is the same age as her husband. Haley was also born in the United States, where she was brought up. Today, she works as a travel advisor. She is behind the travel agency HC Luxury Travels, which is an affiliate of Smartflyer, a company that prides itself as a full-service luxury travel agency.

Although nothing has been mentioned about how Stelen and Haley met and the circumstances under which they began dating, there are some sources that speculate that they most likely met when they were in college.

Whatever the case might be, it is no secret that Toby Keith’s son and his wife went Instagram official in 2015 when they were both 18 years old. The photo of the tow that was shared by Stelen was captioned, “It’s lonely at the top,” which makes it unclear if they started dating at the time.

Having dated for more than six years, the couple walked down the aisle on November 6, 2021. They had their wedding ceremony at Cascata Golf Club in Boulder City, Nevada. The event was witnessed by the close friends of the couple and their family members.

Since then, Stelen has always taken to his social media to celebrate their wedding anniversary. As indicated, they do not have any kids yet and have never revealed their interest in having children. The couple now lives in Oklahoma.
