Dear Sir or Ma'am, I wanted to know if Edger Allen Poe had any children and if he did, I also wanted to knoe how many and who the mother is?. Thank you. Maegan Renee Carter Kautz

No. Very doubtful there were any on the side either. Poe liked kids but never mentions any personal longing or failure, but his personal reticence is typical. Further speculation has little to go on.
