Kim Wayans Is In An Interracial Marriage, Explains Why She Does Not Want Kids
Many folks never knew “In Living Color” legend, Kim Wayans, was married and I’m sure many more don’t know that she’s married to a Caucasian brotha ‘from another mother.’ But it shouldn’t come as a shock, because many of the Wayans have married interracially.
In the African American culture, many of us are still surprised when we hear of interracial dating, or interracial marriages among folks whom we can “identify” with, more than those we cannot.
Kim Wayans is a ’round-the-way-girl’ who grew up in the projects, in a predominantly Black neighborhood and came from very humble beginnings. She also cracked us up with some of the most hood hilarious “In Living Color” characters ever! All of those factors makes it even tougher for many fans to NOT be surprised, when learning of her interracial marriage. But now, Kim is ready to alleviate the mystery about her marriage, as well as her decision to not have kids with her husband.
Married Almost 17 Years…Why Doesn’t She Want Kids?
Well, old schoolers, Kim Wayans has been married almost 17 years to actor, Kevin Knotts. Check out pics and why Kim says she won’t have any kids!
Here’s Why Kim Wayans Doesn’t Want Any Kids…
Kim’s husband, Kevin Knotts, is also an actor and writer from Oklahoma. The couple live in Los Angeles, California.
As reported by NYMag, Kim’s decision to never have kids was simple- coming from a large family of 9 other siblings (totaling 10 Wayans kids), living in their two parent household, she simply never wanted any of her own. However, here’s how she gets her kiddie time in:
‘Kim, who’s been married…to actor Kevin Knotts, doesn’t have kids herself. “I’m Auntie Mame,” she says. “I think it’s because I come from a huge family that I don’t feel the need. I’ve always had kids to love and to coddle. When I get tired of them, I take them back home.”’
Kim Wayans and Kevin Knotts Are Authors!
Kim Wayans and husband, Kevin Knotts, are also authors of “Amy Hodgepodge” – a fictional child book character of mixed ancestry.
“We have about 28 nieces and nephews, and lots of them are interracial children, and we wanted them to see images of themselves reflected back in literature in a positive way.”
Good for them, following their own hearts and not the herd. Wishing them many more years of marital bliss.
