Love life and Marriage with Chuck Norris
In 1997, Chuck Norris’ wife and Chuck Norris met at a restaurant where Chuck was having dinner with a female, and the two were shooting for the same programme the next day – because Gena was just filming for that one day, Chuck asked if she would come back to Dallas to go out with him. She returned to Dallas a month later, the two began dating, and on November 28, 1998, they married.
They opted to put off having children since they were both focused on their work, but Gena gave birth to twins Danielle Kelley and Dakota Alan Norris on August 30, 2001. Chuck previously married Dianne Kay Holechek in December 1958, and their son Mike was born in 1962.
In 1963, Chuck had a daughter from an extramarital affair; Dianne was aware of the affair but stayed with Chuck and gave birth to their second son, Eric, in 1964. Gena was formerly married to Gordon Hinschberger, with whom she had two children, Tim and Kelly, during their five-year marriage.
