Who is Morris Chestnut’s wife, Pam Byse-Chestnut?

While he’s known as the leading man in most of his roles, Chestnut is taken in real life. He has been married to Pam Byse since 1995 and together, they have two children. The two allegedly met at an Atlanta nightclub.

Pam accompanies her husband to most red carpet events and though she remains out of the spotlight, Chestnut has professed his love for his wife throughout the years.

“When I met my wife, there were a lot of qualities I was paying attention to,” Chestnut told Essence Magazine, according to a 2016 tribute piece to the longtime couple. “I knew that she would be a great mother just for how she cared for her nephew and her family. She respected her mother and she respected her family and those were some of the initial qualities that I saw that I thought would make her a great partner.”

As for what has made their relationship stand the test of time, especially as Chestnut navigates life in Hollywood, he told Essence that it’s a basic principle: respect.

“I have been with my wife for a number of years now and the number one thing that keeps us strong is a mutual respect; that is first and foremost,” he said in a 2014 interview.

Chestnut hasn’t commented on all of the social media love but judging by his lengthy marriage, his wife has nothing to worry about.
