Kenya and Gary tied the knot on July 19, 2003, but, they didn't experience the best wedding ceremony. Their special day turned out to be a disaster after the preacher left, the baker dropped the wedding cake, and a fight ensued!

Meanwhile, the couple's interracial romance has been a subject of several interviews. But, Kenya's loving husband, Gary, knows best how to respond to racism. 

 “It’s not like I come home and be like ‘Oh my god, you’re Black and I’m white. I forget she’s black until this stuff happens, ’til you guys interview us,”

The married couple shares two children together, a son, Austin Owen and a daughter, Kennedy Owen, aged 14 and 12 respectively in 2015.

Gary's beau Kenya also has a son, Emily Owen, aged 21 in 2015, from her previous marriage. Kenya, being the one managing the households, gives enough time and care for her children despite her and her husband's busy schedule.

"The response has been great. It's been all positive. It was nice to showcase the city a little bit. I got no complaints, man. It was funny."

Gary, who enjoys a net worth of $3 million also explained that the show is an 'accurate depiction' of people's real-self featured along talks about racism, 

“This presidential race that just happened, I think it just kept showing people at their worst. And I think with our show, you see a more accurate depiction of what people are like, especially when you talk about racism. Black and white. Because I think the majority of people, we get along. I mean, we all want the same things in life.”

Kenya and Gary experienced an unforgettable moment during the season finale of the series as Gary secretly organized a second wedding ceremony to make up for the first one.
