Early life and education
John Stormy Knight was born to Reba Josephine Knight and William Earl Knight on August 24th, 1997, in the small Texan city of Nacogdoches, Texas, at the Nacogdoches Medical Center. The Knights would have rather preferred that John was born in Carthage, Texas, their hometown and residence at the time, but the local pediatrician and obstetrician was sick with a stomach virus and did not want to endanger her patients. It is believed that when John was delivered from his mother, his umbilical chord was wrapped around his neck, choking him, and causing his head to turn a bright purple color. The choking sensation, however, was easily stopped with the unwrapping of the chord and John's person was not put to any harm by it. After a prolonged five days at the Medical Center, John was permitted to return home with his parents to Carthage, Texas, where is older brother Robert had been staying with his grandmother Reba. Upon the return of the Knights, Reba invited them to come with her to Dallas, where she would take them shopping for their new son. The Knights declined the offer, much to her surprise, as they just wanted to spend the first week as a family with their new family member.
