The actress shared a photo of her father-in-law with a lengthy caption to express her sadness and regret at his passing. Kim thanked her fans in advance for any messages of condolences and prayers. It's clear to see that the actress is deeply affected by the loss of her family member.


Celebritist learned from "Instagram" that 49-year-old Kim praised her husband’s father for being a great dad and grandfather to their sons. She mentions that the loss was unexpected and that they are devastated by it.

“Our family is heartbroken and devastated by the unexpected loss of Chris’s father, Wallace Morgan. He was a phenomenal father to my husband and grandfather to our sons. We celebrate his love and cherish his wisdom, while we mourn and grieve. Thank u in advance for your love support and prayers, especially for my beloved, @christopherlmorgan.”


Kim shot to fame as Dorothy "Tootie" Ramsey on the NBC sitcom “The Facts of Life”, which aired from 1979 to 1988. Her role as Regine Hunter on the sitcom “Living Single” also cemented her place in the spotlight. She’s part of a talented family of actors. Her mother is actress Chip Fields, who also played her mother on “The Facts of Life” and “Living Single”, and her sister is actress Alexis Fields, who starred in shows such as “Sister, Sister” and “Kenan and Kel”.


Kim and her mom were both guest stars on episodes of “Good Times”. Although there were male child stars of color for years, the same could not be said for a female equivalent in the 70s, until Fields came along.


She and her husband, Broadway actor Christopher Morgan, welcomed their first child, Sebastian Alexander Morgan, into the world on May 4, 2007. They got married a few months later in July 2007. They welcomed their second son, Quincy, in 2013.

It’s never easy to say goodbye to a family member whom you loved dearly, especially if it’s unexpected. Our condolences to Kim and her family.
