Justin Chambers has been in Hollywood for over two decades, but his role as Dr. Alex Karev on "Grey's Anatomy" made him a fan favorite. Justin was born on July 11, 1970, in Springfield, Ohio, USA.

He comes from a large family of five children and has English, Irish, and German ancestry. Justin has a twin brother, Jason Chambers, along with one older brother and two older sisters.

Justin's time on "Grey's Anatomy" was hugely successful. His love life on the series was one of the most talked-about parts of the show, but away from the hit ABC drama, Justin is a devoted family man. Here are details about his real-life family with his wife of 29 years and their five kids.

WHEN DID JUSTIN CHAMBERS AND HIS WIFE MEET?

Justin might have made a name in the movie world, but his career didn't start with acting. Instead, the 51-year-old star began his career as a model in the early 1990s. 

The Hollywood star first got his break as a model for Calvin Klein. Justin was discovered by a modeling scout in Paris and was featured in campaigns for the famous fashion brand and other top names such as Dolce & Gabbana and Armani. It was during this period he met his wife of over two decades.

The "Grey's Anatomy" actor met his wife, Keisha Chambers, in the early 1990s. At the time, Keisha worked as a booking agent for models and a fashion house.

Shortly after meeting, the couple fell in love, and it did not take long before they exchanged vows in 1993. The lovebirds have stuck together, and both enjoy thriving careers.

THE COUPLE'S MARRIAGE CHALLENGES

Justin and Keisha have a beautiful life together, but things haven't been all rosy between them. The couple once opened up on some issues they've had to overcome during their almost three decades together.

According to the "Wedding Planner" actor, being married to his heartthrob for a long time has sometimes been a source of concern for him, as he does not know any other way to love her. The actor said: "We've been together for so long that I really don't know any other way to be."

The couple tied the knot in their twenties and have been together through various stages of their lives. According to Justin, they both talked about their grandparents in their younger days and watched them pass away.

In his words: "I can remember lying in bed with her years ago and having conversations about our grandparents — and now our grandparents are gone. We've gone through that together, and now our parents are getting older, and we're going through that together."

Regardless of their challenges, Justin feels fortunate to go through life with Keisha. According to the actor: "Every relationship has its ups and downs, but I'm glad I get to go through the ups and downs with her. I just feel really fortunate to have found someone who will be my partner on this journey."

When asked if he was helpful around the house, Justin confessed that he was far from being the family's "Mr. Fix It," adding that he quickly felt frustrated. According to him: "IKEA furniture really, really gets on my nerves. I cannot for the life of me assemble it."

Justin and Keisha wasted no time starting a family after they got married. The couple is parents to five children who are above 18, and their names are Isabella, Maya and Kaila, Eva and Jackson.

In a 2007 interview with Good Housekeeping, Justin confessed that he never thought he would have a large brood as he did. He said:

 “We didn’t plan on having such a big family, but after our first daughter, we had twins, so it sort of jumped from one to three right away. I myself am a twin, and it’s supposed to skip a generation. Or so I thought.”

Justin loves to hang out with his family at home when he is not working. So, when he was asked why he would rather not hang out with his Hollywood pals in nightclubs, the father of five had a sweet response.

He said: "Well, our house is sort of like a nightclub: We've got loud music and chaos and crowds. But really, we're pretty laid-back. Our kids are in a little band, and they like to play video games, and my wife and I do our best to live a low-key, non-Hollywood kind of life."

MEET JUSTIN CHAMBERS' CHILDREN

Justin not only has a house filled with his kids, but each of them lives an exciting life. His daughter, Eva, is a female band member, Pinky Pinky the Band, which released their first song, "Hot Tears."

Eva met her bandmates during her high school days, and together they have toured up and down the west coast. Despite playing on the big stage with her friends, Eva honed her musical skills with her siblings in her younger years.

Speaking of how she and her band find inspiration for their songs, Eva said: "We're so young and have gone through so many different phases, we pull inspiration from everywhere."

Eva also added that staying original and singing what's relatable is their difference. She said: "That's why our sound is — I don't want to say all over the place — but it's authentic to who we are. We work very hard on our music and put our souls into it. I think people can feel that."

Justin's daughter, Isabella, followed his career path and is now an actress. According to her IMDB page, she featured in the 2017 movie, "Hygge." Also, Maya Chambers, one of Justin's twin girls, works as a tattoo master. Her Instagram page has over 5k followers.

Not much is known about Justin's other children as they live a private life. However, judging from their social media pictures, they look like their 50-year-old mom.

Justin does not plan to expand his family anymore but instead switched to adopting rescue dogs. When asked if he had plans for more children, the actor quickly said: "No, no, no. We just got two rescue dogs."

The father of five advises others to follow in his steps and rescue dogs. He told Good Housekeeping, "I strongly believe people should rescue dogs, or, at the very least, listen to Bob Barker and have your pet spayed or neutered."

Justin surprised his fans in 2020 when he announced his decision to quit "Grey's Anatomy" after 15 years on the show. The actor has since focused on other career areas and spends more time with his family.
