After being married for over a decade, Fields is still in love with her husband and believes God wrote their story. 

“It can’t be luck. Luck isn’t this perfect. Luck doesn’t know exactly what I need,” she said. “This was God. You were sent. And I am grateful.”

In 2008, the actress revealed that she was expecting her first child, a year after her older sister, Kim Fields, gave birth to a son, Sebastian Alexander.

At age 29, “The Secret World of Alex Mack” star gave birth to a beautiful daughter named Kaycie, followed by a son named Kaden.

The two kids sometimes appear on their mom’s social media account as they bond through videos and different activities.

In one post, Fields shared a photo of Kaden hanging by a bar during their “quality time at the playground.” Initially, the actress wasn’t up for the outdoor fun, but eventually went after her husband encouraged her and liked it.

In one of his shows, Harvey shared that he was supposedly going to get cut off television for not knowing what he was doing.

Another Instagram post featured her and Kaycie in a short clip. “I’m not sure what we were doing,” she shared. But the fact that she wants to hand around me and talk and be silly makes me happy.”

However, Chip sat with him for half a day and “turned me into an actor overnight.” The following day, his show continued instead of being canceled.

Kim caught the acting bug at the young age of seven, after appearing in a commercial for Mrs. Butterworth syrup.

The actress most recently appeared on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Dancing with the Stars.” She previously guest-starred on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “Good Times.”

Apart from being a successful actress, Kim was able to write and publish an autobiography, “Blessed Life: My Surprising Journey of Joy, Tears, and Tales from Harlem to Hollywood.”
