Actor Morris Chestnut is married with children(take a minute to take that in, ladies). The heartthrob has indeed been married for over a decade to his wife Pam Byse, with whom he has two children named Grant and Paige.

When Morris first met Pam, he said he knew right away that she would make a good wife and mother.

“One of the things that made me truly realize that I wanted her to be my wife is the way she was. She has three older sisters and they have kids. Her nephew was very young at the time, and when we were dating I would see the way she was with kids. I’ve always thought that she was a good person and attractive and all that, but one of the primary reasons why I wanted her to be my wife was because I knew that she would be an excellent mother to my kids,” he revealed in the latest issue of Sister2Sister magazine.

As for his kids, Morris says that he tries his best to teach them right from wrong.

“Just in general, I always tell them when I drop them off to school to be smart and be good people. I have a son and a daughter. My son is 12 and my daughter will be 11 this month. From an early age I would always teach my son, ‘I don’t care what your sister does, you never hit a woman.’ It took a while because kids are kids. But, ‘Never, ever, hit a woman. I don’t care if she does it, you always come tell me.’ I’ve never hit my daughter. My daughter worries about her mother before me. I’m a strong disciplinarian, and they always know certain things are going to get a ‘no’ from me. But when they know they’ve done something wrong they don’t want to feel the wrath of their mother.”

Mmmmm Mmmmm everytime I see him I instantly think of a chocolate ice cream code. lol seriously. I don’t think he will ever become unattractive. An still marriage… Mmmm what a man.

  2. Hello there! This article couldn’t be written any better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He always kept preaching about this. I am going to forward this information to him. Fairly certain he’s going
    to have a great read. I appreciate you for sharing!

  3. my my my he has lost his looks.Are we looking @ the same photos?he isn’t as cute face wise as he used to be…what happened?well it just shows that looks eventually fade and love is much more than the outer apparence.wife is still very pretty though.the kids are gorgeous of course 😉

  4. *sigh* I don’t lust after this man because he is married but lordy lordy (lol). He is gorgeous but a great actor and I really appreciate his work. His family is lovely. I love what he said in the interview about his wife and on his parenting skills.

  5. he was his finest in the best man, swag was on 100, not so much anymore but i respect and love him for being a positive black man in hollywood

    • You are right about that…..but he was fine way back to BOYZ IN THE HOOD. But he’s still fine today. His little girl looks like his clone. She is very pretty.

    • Snickers,I actually think she is black, or at least she has black in her. Thats what I believe based on her looks lol. But im not one to judge so, “to each its own” I wish him the best non the less.

      • Krish I believe you miss my point. His wife is Black. I was just saying that my beautiful black brotha is so fine, I can see why so many non-Black women want our fine Black Men. A sista would have known what I meant

        • You must have meant that comment for I HEART BCK because I didn’t say anything about his wife except that she is pretty. LOL

  6. Oh yeah, by the way, He has a very pretty wife and beautiful children. It must be a thrill for his wife to wake up and see this man next to her. HE IS FINE! Excuse me, I just get carried away.

  7. My goodness! Thank you, thank you, BCK. I love this man. He is finer than frog’s hair. Goodness gracious. His daughter looks just like him. He will certainly have to fight off the boys. Thank you for this picture of his family. Oh! He is so fine! uhm, uhm, uhm.

  8. I think I’ll get over it! I have never seen Morris Chestnut as hot.
    I’ll leave him to other ladies to crush on.
