LOVE, MARRIAGE & KIDS: ACTOR MORRIS CHESTNUT’S STORY
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.”
