How many children does Betsy DeVos have?

Betsy DeVos has quit her role as Education Secretary, making her the second member of Donald Trump's cabinet to quit over the Capital riot.

DeVos, who has been in the role since 2017, submitted her resignation on Thursday, January 7, citing Trump's "rhetoric" for the "mess caused by violent protestors overrunning the US Capitol".

How many children does Betsy DeVos have?

DeVos has four children with her husband of 40 years, Rick.

All four of her children are grown adults – Rick, Elissa, Andrea and Ryan.

DeVos also has five grandchildren.


Andre DeVos Abraham is founder and CEO of Whoosh Beauty and mother to two boys, according to her Instagram profile.


Rick DeVos is founder of the ArtPrize festival and competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The entrepreneur's Instagram profile also describes him as the founder of venture capital and private equity firm Wakestream Ventures and of venture capital seed fund Start Garden.


Ryan DeVos has been working for the Orlando Magic for the past five years.

Ryan works as director of Magic Gaming, the club's esports NBA 2K League team.

Esports Insider says his main responsibilities "include overall management of the day-to-day basketball and business operations".

He worked in marketing before this.


After graduating from Princeton University, Elissa married entrepreneur Nate Lowery.

Who is Betsy DeVos' brother Erik Prince?

Erik Prince is a former US Navy SEAL officer and founder of the private military company Blackwater.

Blackwater, now known as Academi, was probably the first private military contractor to hit the headlines when in 2007, four of its employees shot dead 17 Iraqi civilians.

The four contractors were convicted in the massacre in the Iraqi capital.

It left more a dozen Iraqi civilians dead and caused an international uproar over the use of private security guards in a war zone.

However the four men were later controversially pardoned by Trump and he was accused of "insulting the memory of the Iraqi victims" by issuing the "grotesque" pardons.
