But it is reported that he has been married to fitness trainer Ursula, but he has tight-lipped while it comes to talk about his wife.
His reported wife, Ursula is the mother to his three kids. Unlike Shawn, Ursula proudly flaunts her children on social media.

"I've always been so open with them from day one and it's the only way I know how to be."
And Ursula seems to have maintained a good relationship with all her three children that she gushed that they were easy good kids. Their supportive nature has made Ursula stronger.

Back in November 2007, in an interview with PEOPLE, he revealed that he is the doting father to daughters Laila who was aged eight, IIIia aged four and son Marlon aged two then. He stated:
"Waking up every day and seeing three different versions of yourself is great. Watching them grow and learn and being a part of completing a human being is beautiful. I see so many things that I’ve taught my oldest daughter and she’s learned — and that her mom has taught her — from day one. It’s beautiful to watch."

Even though Shawn loves the feeling of his fatherhood, it does weigh on him at times. Specifically at the time when his son has hit the terrible ups and downs. As per Shawn Wayans:
"He is destroying my house by drawing on my couches and breaking all my stuff. He draws stuff for me and shows it to me. There’s a nice picture he made for me, but it’s on my couch!"
Speaking of his son Marlon, the name is named after Shawn’s younger brother, Marlon Wayans, who is married to Angelica Zachary. The two brothers made a pledge when they were little kids to name their kids after one another, and they kept the promise. Shawn remembers,
"It was a deal we made when we were kids. I named my kid Marlon, and he named his son Shawn. What’s strange and funny, though, is my kid looks just like me and his kid looks just like him. It’s awkward, but it was a deal we made when we were six-years-old and I’m glad we made it."
Well, the great comedian siblings kept their promise which they had when they were little. Since he is the doting father of three children, the gay rumors and questions are sided as he is a family man.
Also in an interview with KiddNation in September 2018, he revealed that he does not like if anyone peeks on his personal life. He added that he does not have an Instagram account as he prefers to keep the daily happenings of his life to himself
