Anthony Mackie and his wife, Sheletta Chapital, recently welcomed their third child. The Night Before actor revealed the surprising news during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times. Apparently, both he and his wife have their hands full with the little one.
“I recently had my third kid, and it just messed up everything that was my reality,” Mackie revealed.
He wouldn’t go into detail about the family’s newest addition, but he did explain that things have gotten a bit tricky now that they’re a family of five.
“It just changes your entire perspective on the world. Even traveling is an issue now—I’ve got to buy five tickets!”
Mackie and Chapital tied the knot last year. They have known each other since they were seven years old.
“It was funny. I was coming from a very bad school and going to a very good school,” he recalled their first encounter during a 2014 appearance on the “Queen Latifah Show.” “And when I walked into second grade it was Dr. Seuss Day, and we had the little hot plate out and the teacher was making green eggs and ham. So I walk in, and I looked and I see this little girl with these ratty pigtails and skinny legs, and I was like WOW!”
Congrats to the Mackie family!
