Hey it's possible. Look at his UVA profile:
son of Stephanie Green and the late John Monroe ... one of 16 children, including 11 boys ... sociology major.
Here's some more from a WP article:
Monroe's personal growth followed the same timeline. His father died of multiple myeloma when Monroe was in the fifth grade. "It was right when you need your father the most," said Eugene Green, Monroe's uncle, who became a father figure to Monroe and helped raise him.
Monroe fell back on his large family -- he has one blood brother and 14 stepsiblings, and he lived at times with aunts, uncles and cousins -- but he needed to quickly develop personal responsibility after his father's death.
Just a side note but my uncle is 65 and when he was 61 he remarried a 23 year old girl. Sounds crazy but he looks 40 or younger and is broke so I don't think she's gold digging, lol. His youngest daughter with his second wife is now 8 months old while his oldest son who is my cousin is 43.
