Who knew that celebrity heartthrob Morris Chestnut was married?  Well he is and has been for 11 years. In addition, Morris Chestnut has two children: a daughter,9, and a son,10. In a recent December 2007 interview with Essence.com, Morris talks about his married life, divorce, and his kids.

On ensuring privacy as a celebrity:

Most definitely. To be quite honest, a lot of celebrities want their home life and what they do off-set to be public because people strongly believe that there’s no such thing as bad publicity, in other words, any publicity is good publicity. I always wanted my personal life to be private and my work life to be public.

On whether or not his children are interested in acting:

My daughter is expressing interest but she’s too young. This industry is tough for adults to deal with, let alone children, so she’s gonna have to wait until she’s done with high school before I would really let her pursue.

On the wildest rumor he has ever heard:

I heard I was getting divorce. People were calling me from all across the country telling me about it. A local radio DJ said it and I called into that station and just set the record straight.

On how his wife took the rumor:

She didn’t really care for it too much. I tried to explain to her that you can’t really confirm or deny every single rumor, but I definitely spoke out on that one.
