How old are Brian’s other children?

As Haiden is the middle child, you might be curious to know about his siblings’ ages, especially as they are also finding success in motorsports.

Hailie Deegan is the eldest of the three, born on 18 July 2001 in Temecula, California. She is 20 years old as of publication date. Hailie is currently finding success as a professional stock car racing driver, competing in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series.

Hudson Deegan is the youngest of the three. He was born on 16 March 2011, making him 11 years old as per publication. Currently, Hudson is the only child who lives at home with Brian and Marissa. He is training to become a motorcycle racer, like his father and elder brother. Hudson was far younger when his interest in motorsports piqued, as Hudson reportedly started riding bikes at 3 years old.

No, Haiden does not have a kid of his own

A series of videos posted to Haiden Deegan’s TikTok account suggested to his 720,000 followers that he had a child. But all is not as it seems.

Haiden currently lives with Christian Craig, a Supercross bike rider. He lives with the Craig family so he can focus on training and competing, as the pair are on the same team as one another. It also makes training easier, as the Craig family are based in Florida.

Haiden often posts videos with Craig’s children, pranking the unaware fans that they are his own children.

Christian Craig has three children with his wife Paige: Jagger, Lennon, and Madden.
