Morris Chestnut's list of on-screen romances with gorgeous actresses has created undeniable on-reel chemistry.

But every one of the said chemistries pales in comparison when placed next to the California native's history with his wife, who also happens to be the mother of his kids.

So the question arises,

Who is Morris Chestnut's Wife?

It was love at first sight -- well, at least for Morris!

On a work-related trip to Atlanta some quarter-century ago, he ran into his soon-to-be partner, Pam Byse, in a club. The moment he first laid his eyes on her, Morris instantly fell for his wife, knowing then and there that she was the one for him.

Learning about her in detail from a mutual friend, the star started to fall for his wife even more.

Married in the summer of 1995. Morris and his spouse went on to have two children: a son, Grant Chestnut, and a daughter, Paige Chestnut.

Adding on to his amazing partner's part, Paige is an aspiring Runway model managed by an LA-based agency, Rode Model Management. With a height of five feet and nine inches which she seemingly inherited from her father.
