The couple tied the knot on June 16, 2001, and are parents to two children. Their first child is daughter Bailey Bellamy, born in 2003, and son Baron Bellamy, born on July 5, 2006.

"I read energy really well, and so I was drawn to his energy. I didn't know why because the public persona[...]."
The couple also spoke about how they met when she went to audit a class. Kristen said at the time, she was focusing on herself and not interested in men.
She noticed Bill was always coming late to the class and had to sit at the back, where she was seated as a class auditor. Kristen did not think there was a connection at first but recalled saying "hi" to him. Bill added that she was very nervous when she spoke to him.
The comedian said he and Kristen decided to ensure their kids were exposed to everything.
Bill also revealed how he knew Kristen liked him. So on one Thanksgiving Day, he called her, but her mom picked the call and revealed how Kristen would not stop talking about him.
Last month, Bill and Kristen appeared on "Family Feud," during which they competed with their daughter, Bailey, his sister-in-law, Bellamy, and best friend Lisa, against Vivica A. Fox and her family.
In the end, Bill and his family won $25,000 for their charity, St. Judes Children's Research Hospital.
KRISTEN'S FAMILY MOMENTS
From Kristen's social media posts, it is clear she is a family woman. She regularly shares pictures showing her family's cute moments.
Last December, she shared throwback photos showing her and Bill's first Christmas as a married couple. Then, they did not have kids and decided to have a party, which she still thinks is one of the best they ever had.
Last Christmas, the proud mom, and wife shared a beautiful family portrait showing her, Bill, and their kids posing in matching white tops, denim pants, and white footwear.
In June, she shared a picture showing her and Bill posing with their kids at their daughter's high school graduation. She detailed how they celebrated Bailey's graduation with those who have been with her on the journey.
Last month, she also shared snapshots from her family's final brunch before Bailey's departure to college. The loving mom described her feelings as surreal and mixed with mad emotion as her daughter began a new chapter of life. She concluded saying:
"I just want them all to be irresponsible and inconvenient just a little longer under one roof because she is truly irreplaceable and irresistible ❤️❤️❤️even beauty is having separation anxiety"
MARRIAGE AND RAISING KIDS
Kristen could achieve so much as a mom and a career woman with help from her husband, who is also a dedicated father and husband. In a chat with Essence in 2012, Bill opened up on his thoughts about marriage and fatherhood.
The comedian said he and Kristen decided to ensure their kids were exposed to everything. He also said communication and having a connection have helped in making their marriage work.
Kudos to Bill and Kristen for staying together after many years in an industry notorious for its breakup stories. Hopefully, they will continue to live in love and happiness.
