Keisha and Forest met on the set of the movie “Blown Away” in 1994. They fell in love quickly and got married in 1996. Together, they raised their own two children, Sonnet Noel and True Whitaker, in addition to Forest’s son Ocean and Keisha’s daughter Autumn from previous relationships.

True, following in her parents’ footsteps, is pursuing an acting career and has appeared in episodes of “The Godfather of Harlem” alongside her father. Sonnet Noel, on the other hand, is carving her path in the music industry.

Keisha’s Love for Family and Dedication

In 2008, Keisha opened up about her marriage and the challenges of balancing multiple responsibilities. She admitted that it was not easy to blend in with the crowd while she was in the spotlight. But despite the demands of fame, family always came first for Keisha.

She credited her nanny for helping to keep the children entertained in her absence. Keisha spoke highly of the nanny’s ability to connect with the family and said, “He can do everything. He teaches us hip-hop; he can pick out Manolos, hang with the soccer moms, and plan parties. And he makes a mean apple crumble!”

Keisha’s dedication to her family extended to Forest as well. She commended him for his unwavering commitment and how he would fly home, even for just a day and a half, to spend time with his loved ones.
