Keisha Chambers is the wife of actor, Justin Chambers who is famous for his role of Dr. Alex Karev in the ABC television drama Grey’s Anatomy from 2005 to 2020.
While Justin is also known for his unstable on-screen love life, his real relationship with his wife, Keisha has been going strong for more than 25 years during which they became parents to five children.
So, how did Keisha and Justin managed to defy the Hollywood curse not to mention raising a considerable amount of family? And who is Keisha being the real-life partner of Justin Chambers?
Know all about her down in the article below.
Keisha Chambers’ Early Life
Sources claim Keisha was born in 1970, in London, Ohio. There’s little to no information regarding her past life; prior to meeting her husband. In fact, even her current endeavors are no less than a mystery.
However, one of her daughters, Kaila confirms her birthday falls on the 27th of August. Looking at her appearance, it could be said she belongs to African-American heritage.
Keisha Chambers Relationship With Her Husband, Justin Chambers
Keisha has been married to Justin for over two decades. She married Justin in 1993. Keisha first met the actor when he was modeling for Calvin Klein and she was working as an agency booker.
The couple has been through so much together that the husband thinks he doesn’t know any other way to be.
“I can remember lying in bed with her years ago and having conversations about our grandparents — and now our grandparents are gone,” Justin recalled with Good Housekeeping in 2007.
The 51-year-old actor also said,
“We’ve gone through that together, and now our parents are getting older and we’re going through that together.”
Keisha is believed to have left the booking job shortly after her marriage with Justin and post the nuptials became more of a full-time housewife. For the majority of the time, the Chambers couple has been able to keep their personal lives private. The pair along with their children reside in Los Angeles, California.
Keisha Chambers’ Children
Together, Keisha and Dustin are parents to five children, Isabella Chambers, 26, twins Maya and Kaila, 23, Eva, 21, and Jackson, 19.
With Good House Keeping, the father said he and his wife didn’t plan on having such a big family, but after their first daughter, they had twins, and that “sort of jumped from one to three right away.”
One of their twins, Kaila is a Film Technician and Programmer at Film Makers Corporation in New York.
Keisha’s daughter is also an artist
Although not into acting, Justin and Keisha’s daughter, Eva is a musician in an up-and-coming band. She plays bass in Pinky Pinky, which i-D described as a “California three-piece” with a “hard-pounding sound and DIY attitude.”
In 2018, Justin took to his Instagram account to share pics and videos of Eva playing onstage.
After launching two EPs, Pinky Pinky and Hot Tears, the trio released their debut album, Turkey Dinner, in June 2019.
Keisha’s Family Loves Dogs
Keisha and her husband might already have their hands full with five kids, but they are also a lover of animals.
According to Just Jared, the family of seven was spotted adopting a dog from a pet adoption stand back in 2007. The family is so obsessed with the pooch that they sometimes get into an argument over who would walk the pup home.
Keisha’s hubby is also an advocate for dog rescuing. In 2016, the family extended their canine squad by adopting three more homeless dogs.
Keisha Chambers’ Husband Is A Former Model
As mentioned, before her would-be life partner’s career-making role on Grey’s Anatomy, Justin was a model working with high-profile brands, such as Armani and Calvin Klein. Per his IMDb page, Chambers was “discovered by a modeling scout in a Paris Metro station.”
He went on to have a successful career throughout Europe, Japan, and the United States. In December 2018, Justin shared a vintage photo of himself on Instagram posing in front of a Calvin Klein billboard campaign.
Keisha’s Spouse Had A Sleeping Disorder
In 2008, Keisha’s husband told People that he had a longtime sleep disorder that led him to check into the same UCLA Medical Center where Britney Spears was once treated. The actor said it was a biological sleep disorder. His mind would keep racing and his body would feel tired. It wanted to go to sleep, but couldn’t.
Keisha’s long-time partner said he was sleeping no more than an hour a week. He even went a good two months with no sleep at all. It grew up to the point where he eventually reached his wit’s end and ultimately checked into the Resnick Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital.
