As for those of you wondering, Gloria isn’t related to Forest Whitaker. Since her son looked a lot like Forest, there was a rumor floating around the two could be relatives. But in a 2008 interview with ESPN, Omar ended the misconception that he and the Academy Award-winning actor are related.

He is the #AmericanDream” Omar said.
As for her kids, Gloria has sons named David A Miller (born: Oct 1969), Andrew Miller, Terry Miller (lived in Los Angeles, California), Eric Miller, and Omar Benson Miller.
Sadly, Eric passed away on May 23, 2016, from a seizure. He was an entrepreneur, a father, and a leader. “Whether they were right or wrong he did it his way. Even in his last days. He never accepted death or his epilepsy. He knew he could have a seizure at any time but that never stopped him. Every day it was business as usual. I remember him sending me a copy of his advertisement for his growing computer business and asking me my thoughts,” a friend said,
