Okay, To settle this topic (even though no one has posted on this for years) I just finished DMC 4 twice due to my slight addiction, lol, and found myself wondering the same thing. Nero is in fact Virgil's son. The events of DMC 4 take place after DMC 3, DMC 1, AND the DMC animated series, meaning that in DMC 4 Dante and Vergil would be about 40ish... Vergil could've easily had a kid at 19 or 20. Don't believe me? Read up

I just dont see how vergil could be nero,s father or grandfather or uncle ,I just think vergil its a game character and should remain so ,there,s no time or space for having kids when you are a fighter in a game come on really ,its this a game or a soap opera

Nero is vergil's son as hinted in the DMC manga.
However, if you remember the occult leader, the old fart, said to nero "you have indeed inherited Sparda's power". If you use logic you'll know that you 'inherit' something from your parents...hence my first assumption was that he was Sparda's son.But one thing really tells me he may not even be Vergil's son..how? Well Vergil and Dante were like 25-26 in DMC3 and Dante is around 34 years old in DMC4 and Nero is like 22-24. So, you gotta ask yourself when the hell did vergil pregnate a woman?! Although they are demons and their exact ages haven't been told but it does look that way since the series never hinted Dante or Vergil to have been living a century..and we have seen Dante getting a step above with his powers, if he was really that old he must've had hell lotta experience with him to begin with.

Dante and Vergil are about 19 in DMC 3 and 10 years later is DMC 1 (If I'm correct) and then there is the whole Anime series, that actually happens. Then even more time passes and then there is DMC 4. This leaves our red leather hero at about 40, so if Nero is 20ish, that is very believable.

The simplest explanations tend to be the right ones...CAPCOM has no explanation for Nero, therefor, anything they've ever
tried to tell the fans is pure made-up-on-the-spot-BS. I'm tired of them dropping the ball on this series. (including procrastinating
Nero is either a son of Sparda from yet another human woman he banged (because he banged a lot)...
Or Nero is a plain and simple genetic manipulation of Sparda in some form.

I'm not sure if it's been said already, but Nero is Vergil's son which means Dante is Nero's uncle.
Do I have proof? Devil May Cry 4 and obvious reasons.
First off, Nero is not too far from Nelo.
Two, Yamato responded BETTER to Nero than Dante.
Three, the voice actor of Vergil is the voice actor of Nero.
Four, Dante says "...take a tip from your ELDERS..." Dante is indicating they have a relationship.
Five, there is a little moment where both of their capes flow with the wind epicly. xDDD
Six, They both agree that Nero and Dante aren't bad names.
Seven, That demon aura looking thingie behind Nero looks like Nelo Angelo OR Vergil's demon form.
Eight, Your Holiness says "You have indeed inherited SPARDA'S power." Only way you can get his power is if you're in the family.
Nine, white hair and blue eyes, come on. Vergil + Dante = Twins = Nero looking ALOT like Dante.
Ten, well, Dante's appearence changed, he looks older. And he's about 56 in DMC 4.
That's all, so I'm firmly believing Nero is Dante's nephew.
And I wanna know who the mommy is and where's the rest of the family.

I agree, either he is Vergil's son or a reincarnation of Vergil which could very well be possible.
Now after Nero sustained his mysterious attack, they could've done experiments on him and he best bonded with Nelo Angelo samples they obtained which would explain the connection to Yamato.
But then you have the orphan aspect which brings me to Nero being Vergil's son. I wouldn't put it past Vergil because he wanted to separate himself from Dante so bad in his quest for power. And I could've sworn in one of the cutscenes they showed Nero with his hair slicked back like Vergil. Very eerie indeed.
