Husband Of “Ms. Parker” Actress Has A Beautiful Child With “Thelma” Actress
Well, well, well, ILOSM fam,’ it was just a few days ago, that we hipped you all to the fact that “Ms. Parker” from the Friday movie and actress, Jayne Kennedy, each have kids by the same actor. Now, get ready for yet another shocker! That would be the one about Kathleen “Ms. Parker” Bradley’s husband, having a beautiful daughter of his own with “Good Times” legend, Bern Nadette Stanis. Yep, THE Bern Nadette as in, “Thelma Evans” a.k.a. my boyhood crush from back in the day, but I digress.
Anywho…”Ms. Parker’s” husband is one lucky mutha because we’ve now learned a few facts about the brotha that would make any male fan of Bern Nadette’s green wit envy right about now.
So, not only did Terrence Redd manage to snag THE “Ms. Parker” and make her his wife of 30+ years now, he also once jumped the broom with Bern Nadette!
Apparently, both ladies prefer marrying men outside of the entertainment industry. Bern Nadette has been married to her civilian husband, Kevin Fontana, for nearly 39 years. Her ex-hubby, Terrence, is a regular civilian as well- he’s been a mechanical engineer for decades and he married Bern Nadette around 1981 (there are conflicting reports on the actual date).
The two former lovebirds remained married for approximately 5 years, before movin’ on with their lives. Even though their marriage didn’t quite work out, the blessing they’re both grateful for, is their 35 year old daughter, Dior Ravel.
As we previously reported, Dior, is Bern Nadette’s eldest daughter and she’s just as gorgeous as her Moms! In fact, Dior looks so much like Thelma’s clone, that it made us do a double take when we first laid eyes on her.
A few interesting facts about Dior, is that she’s an aspiring author and also a model. She’s also blessed her parents with a precious granddaughter named, MaNon.
Dior has a great relationship with her stepmom, Kathleen, and her pops, Terrence. She loves chillin’ with her Mom and below is photo of her at Bern Nadette’s autograph signing during the 2016 Essence Music Festival. Dior even rocked a hat that read, “Thelma’s Daughter.” How cool is that?!!
By the way, be on the lookout for Dior’s book, titled “Love, Life, and Feelings”…her parents couldn’t be more proud of her.
In case you missed our prior articles on Dior’s siblings, here’s a quick breakdown:
Bern Nadette Stanis also has a 20-something year old daughter, Brittany Rose. Stanis is very proud of her daughters and she revealed that Brittany is currently attending Hampton University, pursuing a career in the medical field – a gynecologist to be exact.
Dior’s other biological sibling is Terrence II, the 28 year old son of her father, Terrence Redd, and Kathleen Bradley.
In addition to her two biological siblings, Dior Ravel also has a stepsister, Cheyenne, whom she’s just as close to as if she were her actual flesh n’ blood. Cheyenne is Kathleen’s daughter from her prior marriage to Jayne Kennedy’s actor husband. Yep, you read that right…if y’all missed that scoop, you can read it HERE.
Overall, it’s always a beautiful thing to see happy blended family bonds, like the ones “Ms. Parker, Bern Nadette “Thelma” Stanis, Jayne Kennedy share with their children, step-kids and their kids’ fathers.
They’ve all managed to co-parent peacefully, like grown folks should.
