Pierce Hill Harper’s Early Life

Pierce Hill Harper was born on December 17, 2015, to a homeless mother.

Details about his birthplace and biological father remain hidden from the public eye until today, 8 years later.

However, what is known is that the renowned actor, Hill Harper, was present during Pierce’s birth, and he even took time to cut the umbilical cord.

As a way to appreciate the boy’s acceptance to become his father, Hill Harper named him Pierce Hill Harper.

He took the name Pierce after his movie icon and infamous Tomorrow Never Dies actor Pierce Brosnan.

Hill Harper started Pierce’s adoption process right after his birth, though it was finalized in 2017, 18 months later.

During an interview with Good Morning American, Hill said that he received a call days before Thanksgiving of 2015 about a homeless woman who was giving birth in three weeks and needed an adoptive family to take care of her child.

Although it was an off-guard call, Hill Harper welcomed the idea and agreed to adopt the child.

Fast forward after finalizing the adoption process, Hill Harper has proven beyond doubt to be the best father he could, even though the journey started with a lot of fears of what fatherhood was all about.

He has also ensured Pierce gets the best childhood by filling the two positions as a father and mother.

He also showers Pierce with a lot of praise and encouraging words on his social accounts such as Instagram.

Also, while it seems challenging to raise the child as a single father, he gets help from his mother Marilyn Harper.

Pierce Harper’s Education

To keep his family’s story as private as possible, Hill Harper has never revealed his son’s educational background to the public.

 However, when talking to The Seattle Times in 2020, Harper revealed that he had enrolled Pierce in a private school in Seattle, Washington.

Therefore, considering how educated and dedicated Hill Harper is, combined with his love for his son, there is no doubt Pierce will get the best education, just like his father.

That makes Pierce Harper his only child at the moment.

During the interview, Hill Harper also said that he was afraid of commitment, especially after seeing his parents divorce.

He also insists in every interview that adopting Pierce is the greatest decision he has made in his life.

That means he is ready to support whatever career path Pierce takes as he sees him grow into an independent and strong man.
