Angelo Banks is the Oldest Child of Lil Durk and Nicole Covone Born 11 Years Ago
Angelo Banks was born to Durk Derricks Banks, best known as Lil Durk, and Nicole Covone on November 29, 2011, in the United States of America. He is the oldest child of the rapper and he has one biological sister and four half-siblings. Angelo is currently in school, though the name of the institution is not disclosed, he is reportedly doing well with his studies.
As a celebrity kid, Angelo rose to his prominence very early in life. His father Lil Durk is a renowned singer known for his prowess in music. His mother Nicole Covone is best known as a celebrity spouse but she is also an entrepreneur, media personality, and internet influencer from Chicago, Illinois. While we know she was born on 25 April 1990, details about her parents and siblings are not known at the time of this writing.
Nicole is the co-founder of “only the family” company, which is a rap collective. She started dating Lil Durk in 2008 and they would later exchange their marital vows in 2011. The union was blessed with a son (Angelo Banks) and a daughter (Bella Banks). Sadly, their marriage came crashing when Nicole found out that Lil had a child with another woman.
The Celebrity Couple Got Married in 2011 But Divorced in 2013
Although Lil Durk and Nicole Covone had a seemingly picture-perfect marriage, trouble was brewing in paradise. They started as a couple in 2008, then got married in 2011, the same year they welcomed their first child. Unfortunately, the marriage hit rock bottom when Nicole found out that Lil Durk had a child with another woman while they were still an item. She proceeded to file for divorce and gained custody of her children.
Be that as it may, Angelo and his sister Bella Banks are very much allowed to visit their father as he too is free to spend quality time with them. After the split, Lil got involved with Tameka Kute, but sadly, the relationship came crashing after a while. They both had a daughter, Skyler Banks. At the time of this writing, Lil Durk is engaged to his long-time girlfriend and baby mama India Royale who is currently expecting Lil Durk’s seventh child.
Angelo’s Father Lives a Controversy-Filled Life
Coming from parents who had a lot of legal issues and controversies surrounding their life, Angelo has managed to stand out. While his grandfather is serving a jail term for murder, his father Lil Durk is no stranger to lawsuits. In 2011, Lil Durk was arrested for the possession of a weapon and was imprisoned for three months. He was arrested after the police found a 40 caliber pistol in his car on South Green Street Chicago on June 5, 2013.
In June 2019, Lil Durk was held in custody alongside King Von for attempted murder and robbery. They reportedly shot at a Cherokee Jeep in an Atlanta drive-in. He was later released on a $250,000 bond while King Von was released for $300,000.
On the other hand, much has not been revealed about his mother though her life has not been trailed with many controversies as much as Durk’s. Be that as it may, their son is living his life somewhat immune to all the negative news trailing his father. Apparently, he is still a kid and it is hoped that he will become a better person.
Lil Durk Appears To Share a Special Bond With His Oldest Son
As is clearly seen on his Instagram page, Angelo has a close connection with his father. Over the years, the rapper and his first son have kept their fans spellbound with their adorable pictures. In the fall of 2019, Lil Durk took to Instagram to reaffirm his love for his son. He did this in a post wherein he uploaded Angelo’s snapshot with the caption “love this Lil boi with all my heart”.

About 2 years after Angelo Banks was born, his parents got married in July and later welcomed the birth of his kid sister Bella Banks on the 19th of July 2014.

Zayden Banks’ birth couldn’t have been any less dramatic than it was. He is the biological child of Lil Durk but details about who his mother is have been shrouded from the media. The lad was born on the 5th of November 2013, just 3 months after Bella Banks was born. Apparently, Zayden’s birth and Durk’s acceptance of his paternity proved Nicole’s accusation of him cheating on her with another woman to be true.
However, despite the controversies that have trailed Zayden Banks even before he was born, the young boy is doing pretty well living his life like the rest of Lil Durk’s children. He reportedly has a thing for basketball and just maybe, he might be a B-ball star in the making.

Another of Lil Durk’s children who next to nothing is known about his mother is Du’mier Banks.

However, while Durk and Tameka were an item, the rapper constantly made headlines for having flings with other women. It is believed that this could be the primary reason why they split.
- Birth Year: 2018
- Age: 5 years old

Willow Banks for now is the youngest of Lil Durk’s children. He had her with his current girlfriend India Royale sometime in 2018 and she is about 5 years old now. Lil Durk and India began dating sometime in 2018 before the rapper publicly proposed to his lover on December 18, 2021, during his headlining performance at Chicago “Big Jam” Concert.
The duo are still together and their fans are eagerly expecting them to tie the knot soon. Perhaps, Willow might also become a big sister if India gives birth to another child.
