Grey’s Anatomy star Chandra Wilson poses with her children, Serena, 13,Joy, 8, and Michael, 19 months, after shooting a Folgers GourmetSelections ad on May 31 in Pasadena, Calif. In the bottom left corneris her longtime partner and father of her children, whom Chandrarevealed to OK! is actually her husband. The actress declines to namehim for privacy’s sake.

There’s something to be said about keeping your family close so that you guys (the tabloids) don’t tear them apart!

When she’s at home with her clan, they can often be found relaxing with a tub of ice cream.

Downtime is sitting on the couch, eating a lot of ice cream. We do that a lot.

Since the ABC drama premiered two years ago, Chandra has shot to fame, an experience she and her kids are still getting used to.

It’s been an interesting ride for them because they saw me gofrom pounding the pavement doing auditions to this level. I keepsaying, in a few minutes, we’ll be back in New York pounding thepavement. I don’t know if I’ll ever get rid of that feeling.

It’s refreshing to see a normal everday woman – and I still think she’s beautiful in every way, as much as any “cover model” type – let it all hang out, so to speak.

I find it odd that one would be hesitant to name someone and yet feel comfortable being photographed and distributed via a magazine to millions of homes and categorize that as “privacy” though…not sure the logic behind that…any way you cut it, Chandra is ushering a new era of womanhood, motherhood, and femininity in Hollywood. Love her – she’s the only thing that keeps me tuned into Grey’s – besides McDreamy of course (but I’m old enough to have loved him since Can’t Buy Me Love and I think that makes me exempt from judgement!)

woah, those girls look a lot like their mother.

Nice to see her husband. While the girls do look like their mother, I see him in the oldest girl. And little Michael Chandra and her husband, I think. 🙂

Very cute kids. I adore that woman and fully respect her for trying to keep her family out of the tabloids.

Diana on

Cute family! I love her on Greys. And I can understand how she would be okay with revealing a picture but not a name.

Christina on

I guess I just don’t see what’s so private about it. Other celebs have done the same and it always seemed curious to me…either way, I love her so much!

Here she says that she ISNT MARRIED:
6 May 7: Ch says “I’m in a relationship but not married. “:
-[url]…Chandra [/url]

So did she just marry? I hope she had a prenup.

lilkunta on

NOW she is saying they r married. In an interview printed in May she said they’d been 2gethr for 19 yrs.

I wonder if they recently married?

I hope she got a prenup.

Surely his name may be found out from their marriage license : check TX or NY, or even their taxes.

The children are nice looking but she could’ve at least took off the pajamas and robe and put some clothes on. The boyfriend looks like he just woke up this looks like the coffee commercial she’s in with the kids I remembered the wardrobe. Sister lets not give them anything more to talk about do better next time with the wardrobe.Your appearance makes a statement.

I love Chandra. She is fantastic on Grey’s. It’s great to see a real woman that I can relate to. She is beautiful and so is her family. I respect her for keeping her husband’s name private. It’s their decision and it does not matter if they’re married.

Tee on

I believe they were filming the commercial at the time which is why everyone is in their pj’s. I absolutely adore her and she is the reason I watch Grey’s as well!

Agreed: She is wonderful and that her family is so cute. But what does is matter that she’s not dressed to impress. She’s human. We don’t look camera ready 100% of the time, and thats what she is trying to express. I love that fact that she is in her pjs and that her man looks like he just woke uo. Represents the average American family.

I suppose that saying in one interview she’s married and not in the other states that she could have a common law marriage, or that they have their own vows they live with and that makes them married. Either married or not we still love her for who she is and what she brings to GA, and thats not going to change.

So she is doing great at keeping a low profile on her family and everyone should just respect that.
