Wesley Snipes Talks Highly of His Father-In-Law's Contributions

Wesley Snipes, Blade from the movie 'Blade,' is an American actor, film producer, and not to forget to mention a martial artist. 

This 59-year-old has done sterling work throughout his career and has been nothing but admirable to watch on screen. 

While there sure is much on the career of this first-class actor we could talk about (which we will come to later), let us first discuss his children, wife, and personal life at its best. 

Wesley Snipes's Wife & Children

As successful as his professional front, Wesley has a rewarding personal life. He has been married to his beautiful spouse for almost two decades now. 

He and his wife, Nakyung Park, tied the knot in 2003, and ever since, the two have been inseparable. 

The actor and his wife have four children together, but Wesley has five children, including those from his previous relationships.

One of his children, his son, Jelani, is from his relationship with his first wife, April Dubois, with whom he was married from 1985 to 1990. 

Whatever went south in the relationship is yet unknown, as Wesley has never really shared anything about his married life. 

But one thing the actor has is immense respect and love for his family.
