Second Child Of Tony Beets With Minnie Beets
Mike Beets is the second child of the long-time married couple, Tony Beets and his beautiful wife, Minnie Beets. Together Tony and Minnie gave birth to their son, Mike, in 1990. Though his parents are originally from the Netherlands, they welcomed and raised him in Yukon, Canada.

Moreover, Mike also had a younger sister named Jasmine Beets. She had joined his family on 15 December 1992. Unfortunately, she had arrived on this earth with an extra chromosome. So, due to the same congenital disability, Jasmine passed away at the age of two and a half years on 1 March 1993.
